I recently finished Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock which I enjoyed and am still playing Call of the Sea which I'm also enjoying.

I am replaying Arthur's Knights 1 and 2. After that, I will be playing some old Kheops games that GOG got in early last week, one of which I have played before and two I have not.

I don't have time to play games this time of the year, since I'm busy shooting for my own game during the very short summer we have in Sweden. This, however, gives me the opportunity to stack up on games that I can look forward to playing when I get the time. On the top of that list is 3 Minutes to Midnight and TAPE: Unveil the Memories (and, of course, Return to Monkey Island and Open Roads if they will be released before the end of the year). Return to Monkey Island kind of goes without saying, and Open Roads is from Fullbright Studios, that gave us the excellent Gone Home and the equally brilliant and highly unusual Tacoma.

3 Minutes to Midnight is not out yet though right? But should be sometime this year. Or is it out somewhere but just not on Steam yet?

I'm easily getting in 10,000 steps/day by exploring the island in Ghost on the Shore. I was enjoying Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, but got stuck in one spot getting killed so many times I had to stop playing. Looking forward to these releases: The Adventures of Bryan Scott, Harold Halibut, South of the Circle, House of DaVinci 3 and the next Carol Reed game.

I finished Mission Critical not too long ago and am almost done with Pegasus Prime , 2 of my most favorites. I have started Garage: Bad Dream Adventure and will do full time when Prime is finished. When I get wound up I grab a glass of wine and mess with Glass Masquerade . Have also been checking out some recent Demo's

Mikael...Sounds great you shooting a game. Looking forward to its release. I am available for acting. I need round trip air, lodging, food, spending and will take a percentage of sales. Let me know when tickets are ready please. LUV Sweden. You are very lucky

Are those Carol Reed games your games? If not do you have a website with your games?

I recently played and enjoyed Crowns and Pawns and Voodoo Detective. Then I (admittedly, rather belatedly) discovered WadjetEye games. Loved Unavowed, then played all the Blackwell games in order, then A Golden Wake. I played the short but enjoyable Intruder in Antiquonia (new), and most recently played the older Unforeseen Incidents. I will check out some of the games mentioned in this thread, although I am a little limited because I only enjoy playing true point and click games on a Macintosh.

I recently finished a couple of Tonguc's games (Cions of Vega and Redress of Mira). Finished The Town of light and Martha is Dead (both beautiful games with horrifying storylines), The Fabled Woods and The Alien Cube were lovely games, but not very well optimized and their lack of saves means you can't re-visit areas, which I hate. The Last Days of Lazarus was another gorgeous game with a terrifying storyline. One of the most magnificent adventures in a long time: Syberia, the World Before was a pleasure to play! It took me many hours to complete, but it's one of the best games I've ever played. A while ago I enjoyed playing the remastered "Riddle of the Sphinx." Absolutely adored "Eastshade"...finished that a while ago, but re-visit from time to time for the amazing visuals. Same with Xing: The Land Beyond. A beautiful game and a lovely soundtrack and storyline. Finished that a year or so ago.
There have been many others, but these all come to mind and the experience was great. I love my Steam!

I have a question for those who are playing or have finished Syberia, the World Before.

Did you muddle through Syberia 3 before starting it, or did you skip it because of the poor reviews?

If I skip it, will I miss any important info in the story line?

I have not yet played Syberia The World Before except for the Prologue, so I am only assuming that it would kind of explain why Kate is where she is at the start of the game. However, I think Syberia 3 was an excellent game that should be played regardless of what some reviewers had to say!

Uncle Reg, I agree with oldbroad that Syberia 3 is very much worth playing. They added point & click mouse control with a patch after release, which made a huge difference in playability for me. Oldbroad, in The World Before they do a great job of reminding us of how Kate ended up where she is and filling in any gaps. A great game, very beautiful with stunning views from many interesting angles, beautiful graphics and the right amount of challenge, at least for me.

Also, forgot to mention above that I'm currently replaying House of DaVinci 1.

I finally made it through Chapter 5 of Call Of The Sea. The first part was not too hard, but when I got to the part about getting through the gate before it closed, I had a hard time figuring it out. I read through 3 different walkthroughs before I knew what I was supposed to do. I did finish the level on a high note. I nailed that last four sided flow puzzle on the first try.

I'm in the middle of Chapter 6 Uncle Reg. I used a walkthrough on the first puzzle in Chapter 5 but after that I was able to get the rest of them. Have you been enjoying the game?

Today I started a replay of The Omega Stone and tonight I started Norco. I did not play Norco very long but I have a feeling I'm not going to understand one bit of it.

I just finished a cute free adventure game called The Lost Dachshund. If anyone is in the mood for a lighthearted hour I recommend it!

Thanks for the head's up on this game Ana! It does look cute. I've put it on my Wishlist for now so I don't lose track of it.

Finally got to Syberia: The Time Before and am thoroughly enjoying it. I switch between that and Myst V: End of Ages because I like it and replay it often.


If all the people were heroes, there would be no one to watch the parades.
