I've been thinking that the 80% of the games i played had something to do (sooner or later) with the Templars or the Aztecs... It's an interesting theme i admit that but this is just to much in my opinion...
Have you notice that or i am just unlucky? Is there any other very common themes you can think off and i'm not?

You start a game with a completely different theme and somewhere in the middle pop pop pop the brotherhoods... If i'll play one more game like this i think i'll become an expert on their history... lol

I seemed to have played a lot of games over the last year with voodoo/hoodoo as a theme. smile Also the supernatural in other contexts seems to be the subject of many of our games. I enjoy most of them immensely but it is refreshing to play something that's set in the real'ish' world sometimes! smile

You know... there is a certain puzzle in Tex Murphy Pandoras Directive with Aztec numbers and maths and that kind of staff. I met similar puzzles in more then one games and i even remember back then how the one is in Aztec maths 2,3 etc lol

lol Well it would save on box design, because with all that text there wouldn't be any room for illustration!

You're right Rushes, let's make it a text based game.

>North

You're at the entrance of a pyramid. There's a strange looking man here with some strange tattoos on his arms. On the ground you see some chicken feathers and an amulet. Above the entrance are inscriptions that look like dots and dashes. To the east you see a landing place for spaceships. West you see a big picture of a snake.

When you enter the pyramid you here a loud click. A moment later you hear the sound of a boulder rolling down a slope! You decide to go out quickly but before you do that, you see a hat and a whip lying on the floor. Thinking about all these archeologists you meet on your adventures, you rush out.

You're at the entrance of a pyramid.

>Enter Pyramid - inside there is a large ante chamber with steps ahead leading down to a door with strange symbols & no visible means of entrance. To the left is another door with a snake symbol above & again no means of entry. Time to exit pyramid & check out spaceship & snake - don't forget to pick up chicken feathers etc - you will need those later. Whip & hat are optional but you might get an easter egg out of them.

The average adventure game is about a guy called Omar Nahuatliluaki who got murdered while trying to enter a pyramid during the crusades. You play the role of Sherlock Drew who is trying to solve the mystery with the assistance of a Greek God.

???? Mummified human-like corpses (far taller than any living human being) and strange fish-related artifacts. Was there a body of water near the pyramid sometime in the past? Or were the builders of the pyramid from a lost civilization from under the sea?

Suddenly, a light strikes a statue near you. You realize that there is a hole in the roof of the pyramid, and the sun has just reached the point where it illuminates the statue.
