The one game that has actually captured my attention and refused to let it go recently is Auralux: Constellations. It's a strategy game, and it's terrific. (If anyone wants to play multiplayer sometime hit me up with your Steam name.)

(In case anyone's interested in this game, I reviewed it on my blog - http://www.indiegamenews.com/2016/06/review-auralux-constellations.html)

I really want an adventure game to grab me again. Though Demetrius had me hooked until I completed it.

Currently downloading Dreamfall Chapters Book 5 - Hooray!! Recently replayed the original Dreamfall and loved it all over again, not too sure about replaying TLJ seeing I played it 3 or 4 times a few years ago, although I loved that, the one thing that was annoying was the amount of dialogue to wade through.

Not sure either whether to just play Book 5 of Chapters or start the whole thing over again - what are others doing?

Hi,

I'm not playing anything. I joined Steam in order to play games with my 13-year-old soon-to-be-nephew, because I can't run any of the classic CD-ROM games I now have in my bedroom, such as these adventure games:

*The Journeyman Project trilogy (Turbo, 2: Buried in Time, and 3: Legacy of Time) by Red Orb Entertainment/ Broderbund Software.
*Relentless: Twinsen's Adventure* by Adeline Software International/Electronic Arts.
*Titanic Out of Time* by Cyberflix.
*Monkey Island Madness*, one of 6 CD ROMs in the LucasArts Collection III. The CD ROM includes *The Secret of Monkey Island*; which is also on a PC Gamer Classic Games CD 5.10, which came out in July, 2000; and *Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge*. The collection also has a playable demo of *Curse of Monkey Island*, of which I also have the full game on a separate CD ROM; as well as separate CD ROMs of *The Dig* and *Full Throttle*.
*The Roberta Williams Anthology* by Sierra Online, which is four CD ROMs containing all the games she designed including the entire King's Quest Series. I also have two copies of King's Quest VII as well as one each of King's Quest V and VI on separate CDs.
*Inherent Evil: The Haunted Hotel* by Head Games, which is also the title track of a Foreigner album.
*Alone in the Dark* by Infogrames. Included on the PC Gamer Classic Games Collection mentioned above and on a three-CD *Best Sellers Pack*.
*The Leisure Suit Larry Collection* by Sierra Online. 2 CD collection includes all the officially released LSL games up to 7: Love For Sail, which apparently, according to Wikipedia, isn't the full version featuring an endgame easter egg that gives the game an Adults Only rating. Both the 1987 EGA command-prompt original and the 1991 VGA GUI remake of LSL 1: Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, are in this collection.
*Myst 10th Anniversary DVD Edition* by Cyan, includes Riven: The Sequel to Myst and Myst: Exile on separate DVDs.
*Computer Game Entertainment #5*, released in 1997, features six full free games including *Companions of Xanth*, the shooter/flight simulator *Jetfighter II* and the RPG *Tower of Souls* by Legend Entertainment; and Zork 1-3* by Infocom.
*Sanatarium* by ASC Games.
*Beyond Atlantis* by Cryo Interactive/DreamCatcher Interactive.
*Connections* by Discovery Channel Multimedia/The Learning Channel/Some Interactive.
*Dust: A Tale of the Wired West* by Cyberflix.

Hi there,

I've read the forum almost daily but not written anything for a long time.

I'm currently playing Fallout 4 (FO4) which may take several months for me to complete! lol Before it I played Assassin's Creed: Syndicate (ACS). So I've been on the dark side for a long time already. Waiting for the Last Crown: Blackenrock to get published and the price of the Sherlock Holmes: Devils's Daughter to get lower to return among adventures with less action. Playing ACS in Victorian London felt so real with great graphics and sound, like an interactive movie. I wish there would be non-action and puzzle filled adventures with similar qualities, but I'm afraid the genre limits the audience too effectively to make them any financial success compared to investments needed.

That's quite a cool game, really like the humour.

Absolutely! This isn't the type of game genre's I typically play but I love this series and the developer's style.

I'm replaying all the CSI games, even CSI Miami. I just love these games.

I've paused playing casual games to play Tesla Effect. It's really good. When I finish this I think I'll try another of my games on GOG. I've got so many and very few played.

I decided to play Syberia again. Next to Dreamfall, it is my all time favorite game ever! It's been quite a while since I played it. This will be my 4th time. I rarely play a game more than once, but I love going back and visiting with Kate and Oscar and Hans again. wave

I'm currently playing The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. If the achievements are any indication, it looks like I'm about halfway through. My adventure backlog is a bit mountainous, but I'm chipping away at it. On the multiplayer side of things, it's been Endless Legend, Tabletop Simulator (with Steam Workshop mods), and Tom Clancy's The Division.

I have similar feelings about The Division. The graphics and sound design are stunning. The story, characters, and subplots are so intriguing that I would love to see more chapters and missions about them. Especially if they could add some deeper puzzle interaction than just "hold 'F' to [insert task here]". But, like your AC:S example, it's trapped in genre expectations.

I'm currently exploring some of the new GOG games that I acquired (some free, some purchased) on Sunday. I like Under a Killing Moon and think Sam and Max Hit the Road is hilerical. I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, based on a Harlan Ellison short story, is terrifying. Haven't settled on any one game, but in Sam and Max I can't get the hang of "using Max". Sam seems to do most of the talking.

I just finished Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishment and now playing The Devil's Daughter. I'm loving it so far smile The action sequences are quite fun and the story is really interesting. I'm also playing through Space Quest again (thanks GOG.com!) smile

Good morning!

Using a cheat book, I am playing both Under a Killing Moon by Access Software and Sam and Max Hit the Road by Lucas Arts. I'm not very good at adventure games but I love to play them. I like the LOL humor in Sam and Max, although in Chapter 2 of the game, while controlling Sam, in the Carnival when playing the Whack a Rat game, I keep whacking Max instead of the rats. Fun, though.

Jim

Flying Dutchman, good to see you on the board! wave

Jim, however you choose to play your games, with or without cheats, all that matters is that you enjoy them!

Adam, glad you are enjoying Devils Daughter!

Mike, you have a great variety of games going!

I love replaying all three games of Black Mirror but the game for me right now is Infra. Great story and beautiful scenery. A bit spooky but not too difficult. Only part one is out now but the second part should be coming along soon.

I've played Sanitarium on Steam as my CD sits on my shelf too. The game played fine I think a little bit of reloading to get the final puzzle to play correctly but otherwise what a crazy storyline.

Yes. Sanitarium and John Saul's Blackstone Chronicles were both excellent horror themed games. And I replay both from time to time thumbsup

welcome to GameBoomers mountainchef! And thanks for the headsup on INFRA. I added it to our announcements as it slipped by me originally. It looks great!

Mad, Blackstone Chronicles is one of the most haunting games I ever played.

Good evening, fellow Gameboomers!

I had been out of action for a while (from July 1-6, 2016) because of a BSOD on my laptop with which I didn't know what to do. I gave the computer to a friend of mine to fix. He also installed and configured DOSBOX and installed a couple of games for me, including Descent I, Leisure Suit Larry Casino, and Leisure Suit Larry 1: Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards (the 1987 original EGA, command-line version by Sierra). I am currently playing LSL 1; Beneath a Steel Sky; Indiana Jones IV: Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis; and Sam and Max Hit the Road (which is hilarious).
