Just wondering. Are there any other games featuring Darrel Boone and Victoria Conroy?
I have never seen any type of "sequel" game to Watchmaker or anything like that.

I enjoyed the game and the ending sure left it open for further adventures. Maybe there could've been a prequel involving Darrel's father as that was strongly alluded to in the game.

I don't think the original ever got great enough reviews for it to get a sequel. It ended with that game I am afraid. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks. I know Watchmaker wasn't exactly a huge success and had certain issues. For some reason I just really liked it.

btw - love your signature line Ana. grin

I really liked The Watchmaker story but wasn't too keen on the character "acting" in the game.

However I would certainly have gone for a sequel - holding hopes of improvements thumbsup

I'll third that sentiment - I enjoyed the game as well, although it wasn't without its faults (particularly the passing of real time to trigger events.

IIRC Trecision went bankrupt shortly after releasing the game.

I'll fourth the sentiment! smile
I actually LOVED the game. I agree with some of the problems but a great mix of story play and puzzles and a developed story. It's one I will play again...

I also thought it was a great game even with some of the glitches playing it. It would have been fun to play a sequel.

My only personal pet peeve - was one character, whose lines were delivered like she was on tranquilizers. blush

But I really liked the game. The gameplay was unique for its time, and it had a nice pacing, interesting story and a lot of other things that worked well in the game.

I would replay it, no problem smile
