You can find it here. Nice to see yet another older Sierra game show up on GOG. wave

Wow... from 1996! I sure hope we see more old Sierra games on GOG.

Thanks Marian. I received this game along with something I ordered from the All Video guy but haven't played it yet.

Same here, Fireflower! The fact that they have been tweaked to run on new operating systems is the best part.

The reason you're seeing games like Shivers and Lighthouse on GOG is that the latest version of ScummVM now supports them.

It's nice that GOG now offers them, but it's the ScummVM team that did most of the work of making them run on new operating systems.

I got excited there for a minute! I checked and unfortunately Shivers is not available at GOG.

I expect Shivers to be along soon.
Check the ScummVM v2.0 compatibility list.
http://scummvm.org/compatibility/2.0.0/

Riven is now on the ScummVM list too, along with Myst and Myst Masterpiece.
So if you have the disc versions, they should be easier to play using ScummVM.

Shivers, RAMA, and Lighthouse are all now supported by ScummVM, but not Shivers 2 (not yet anyway).

I just purchased "Lighthouse from GOG for $5.99, I played it when it was a "boxed" version (1996), and it's still on my "dusty" shelf. It has always been one of my favorite Sierra games so it's on my play list after I finish Black Mirror 1, also from GOG, and also a replay from the past.

Was thinking about this game earlier this week, but I wasn't in the mood for tweaking it to run.
These days, when I do have time to play a game I need something that isn't required a lot of work just to get it to run. So this is very good News. (Do I need to say that I have already bought it? smile )


I haven't lost it, I just can't find it....

Just bought Lighthouse at gog.com. Hope they do Rama and the first Shivers game as well in the near future. Rama was a fantastic game with a fantastic soundtrack. The first Shivers game was also good, but I didn't like the second Shivers game much. And maybe, just maybe if Rama sells good, there will finaly come a segual for Rama, just as was promised at the end of Rama.

Back in the "old days" I did walkthroughs for all of these games. In 2010 I made a new walkthrough for Rama and you can find it on my site. I don't have the Shivers and the Lighthouse walkthroughs anymore, but I can ask around if someone have these stil and if so can sent them back to me.

Not much tweaking required since Lighthouse is now on the ScummVM compatibility list, as Jenny100 pointed out above. But I will buy it from GOG anyway just to show them my appreciation.

I have fond memories of Lighthouse. It was one of the first games I played after having discovered adventure games through Myst back in the mid 90's. Bought it when it was released.

Also pleased to see they have released Goetia on GOG. A very good adventure game. Highly recommended!

If there are any old adventure games that you would like to see available (digitally) again and you know who to contact at the company that owns the rights to it, let me know and I'll do everything I can to make it happen.

I knew that my friends would deliver.....Just uploaded my old Lighthouse walkthrough and the Shivers 1 walkthrough back on my site. I made them in 2005, so the screenshots are a bit vague. There are 2 Lighthouse walkthroughs, the first one is for how to play the game as intended by Sierra. The second Lighthouse walkthrough is my Alternate walkthrough for the game.....it let you play the game without the need to open the save in the lighthouse and to go underwater with the submarine. The alternate walkthrough also explane how to blow up the vulcano in the end, so you don't need to solve the gun puzzle

The Shivers 1 walkthrough comes with screenshots for all pots and covers and for all the possible hiding places of the Ixupi's.

I know.....it's all in Dutch and most of you English speaking folks don't know the first thing about Dutch. But why not take a change with Google Translate? It won't harm you and it won't bite you...You only need a bit of common sence and you'll be ok with my Dutch walkthroughs, as a few of our fellow boomers have assured me

Have fun playing these nice old Sierra games

I also just purchased "GOETIA" from GOG, after reading about the storyline. There ARE some good walkthroughs for this game available. Now that I've started to play LIGHTHOUSE, Louis, Is
your Lighthouse walkthrough on your site now?
Sandy

OK, just checked your site, Louis, and I DID find lighthouse on it. I have the original SIERRA WT,and now I have your greatly detailed WT to refer to. THANK YOU AGAIN!
