I found it with your help Mikael. I'm loving the challenges you have set us.

Thanks Mikael. I first thought that I was missing a clue somewhere for the first purse in the grass.

Hi game boomers. I am stuck at the Turnip Range....I found the correct green shed and got a key. Now my hints tell me to open a door on a red and yellow building right near the entrance to this area. I can't find that building. There is a small red building with a yellow door but I can't seem to do anything there. It shows a hand but it won't let me use the key I collected. Can anyone give me a better direction to get to the right place. to use the key. Thank you...

Linda, you have to click on the hand icon.

If I remember correctly its behind the "shooters" structure at the start of the range.

Yes, Flotsam is right here. I probably misunderstood Linda. There are two sheds that fit into the same description. You'll find the one in question if you start from the beginning of the location, and go left, forwards, left, forward, and right.

I found the correct green shed and have moved forward. Now I just picked up a pallet and Krusenhof and Carol says that is what she needs to get into the orangery...Now sure where that is....???

Linda, the orangery is the long white building at the same location as you picked up the pallet.

Tangentially, a most excellent one contains Monet's waterlillies in the Tuilleries in Paris.

I also have this adventure game released back in 2000:

Monet: The Mystery of the Orangery

And have also been fortunate enough to visit the Tuileries in Paris. smile

Is this game similar to the Carol Reed games?

I had completely forgotten about that game. I never got around to play it, and I don't remember why. The premise is great:

* Claude Monet - calls for some interesting visual approach.
* Free 1st person movement - wasn't usual in adventure games back then, but I've always liked it.
* An orangery - should be in every adventure game with style.

The game is not available on amazon . There are some on Ebay. One from the UK and the others want huge prices for it. I kind of doubt that windows 10 will play it because it was distributed in 2000.

Someone in the comments section of the YouTube video I linked to said this:

I was able to get it running without any additional software on Windows 10.


Maybe it will run without having to use a virtual machine in Windows 10.

I hate to say it but I am too stuck now. I simply cannot find anything to do.
I grudgingly looked at the hint and it says to check laundry, but when I do that there is a note on the door that says you cant do laundry on sunday, pickup your laundry on monday from the manager. I picked up the balls but can not clean up the graffiti. I suppose I need a rag to go along with the paint thinner. frown

Nope, it didn't for me. Windows 10 just threw up this big blue window saying that "this app can't run on your PC" (which, in all fairness, is an unusually unambiguous error message from Microsoft). It might be that the person who managed to run it on Windows 10 had a 32-bit system.

I have the Monet game as well and reviewed it back in the day. It is a pretty game in which you get to play in scenes that Monet painted but it is overly reliant on timed puzzles and apart from the art doesn't reach any great heights.
Plus it had a not-uncommon glitch that prevented you from finishing without loading a saved game (from someone else) that wasn't similarly afflicted.

Finished, I enjoyed that thanks Mikael, loved the bird sounds too. I'll probably play it again during our winter. I hope all the GameBoomers enjoy it too.
