Well this is great news! I have the first Murder on the Orient but never played it, at least I don't think I have. Really looking forward to a second chance with this updated version. One of my favorite movies as well. Now if Microids can put together another deal for a remake of the games "Death on the Nile" and "And Then There Were None".... well....what a nice collection not to mention hours of enjoyment from these Agatha Christie Mysteries they are releasing

Thank you Ana!


It's never too late!

Thanks Ana! I've put it on the wishlist. I can't wait to see a trailer. This looks more like the old Agatha Christie games which I really liked.

Orion, you have older computers, what are you waiting for?

I could play it oldbroad. I would have to find it. It is hidden in one of the 10 boxes of games. No biggy there. System requirements for Murder on the Orient says it will run on XP which I have tied into the big screen along with the W7. Right now I have been playing demos and have Veritas running while waiting for Firmament, Return to Grace and Bone Totem to release this month on the 18th, 30th and 31st in order. Right now they are priority but you got me thinking. Bottom line.....I really have too much on my plate right now oldbroad but thanks for the push

I love all things Agatha Christie, and I enjoyed The Adventure Company version from back in the day. I'm interested in seeing the differences and the plot twists.
