I've been playing some old games lately and this was one I just finished. Great writing... good story line.... chapter 3 caught me by surprise.. :-)
Boy I am either getting old or this was a hard game.. that too caught me by surprise. Sure was fun. I usually don't like a lot of conversation in a game but I got to say they sure had good writers.

Thanks for sharing your experience with this game Winfrey! Glad you enjoyed it! I do not have any of the Discworld games.

Many of these old games run quite well on Windows 10. Sometimes GOG has them tweaked to run on new systems too.

I have Discworld Noir running on my Windows 7 computer and the other two Discworlds run great in DOSBox. I think the first two games are also supported by ScummVM.

They were all really good games. I don't think we will be seeing them on GOG anytime soon because they would have to get the permission of Terry Pratchett's estate or whoever has the rights to the Discworld name - and this seems an unlikely occurrence. We can always hope, though.

Sony swallowed Psygnosis - the publishers of the Discworld games - and I spoke to one of their UK staff at the time.
I was bluntly told no future releases were planned.

And two weeks later Psygnosis was gone 👎

So I always thought Sony held the rights to the actual games ??

All Video Classic Games sells them but they are quite expensive.

This true classic should be played be everyone. The patch can be found here. It works with the original discs, but the aspect ratio is distorted. This can be fixed by setting the screen resolution to 640 x 480 (or any other non-widescreen aspect ratio) if you have a graphics card that supports maintained aspect ratio.
