For an extra 10 bucks you can order the game guide from them. It's a downloadable PDF. The first one wasn't printer friendly so they released a second version which is, for those who prefer an ink and paper guide book.

as far as interactive movie type games...Tex Murphy and Gabriel Knight were awesome.....I am into Darkstar just a little ways now, but it seems to be more along the lines of Myst type...or 7th guest as opposed to inventory based dialogue based etc...meaning its more puzzles to open doors etc.....the game looks great but i get bored very fast of this type...i know i have just started it and hope it takes more along the vein i mentioned as far as the tex type style......or if anyone can let me know?....thanx

i didnt like myst and if u think its like myst then [blip] i probs wont like it. Being alone, 360 pan view i might have been able to deal with i guess but no dialogue based or inventory based puzzles. [blip]..

Skeeter -- constructive criticism is helpful if you've played the game. If you haven't played the game, this sort of speculation is counter productive.

I was posting a response to the comments above mine that he was explaining the game was like. So i posted how i felt to Hamers post and felt it wasn't a game i thought it was and that it was a shame. So everything i said was very valid if Hamer is to believed in playing it already then my comments were valid in a response post.

Also i used no profanity so not sure why my post was edited. If you think words like "d a m n" are profanity then wow... Here in the UK they are very common everyone says it even kids and we dont think it is profanity.

Hi Skeeter --

Here is dictionary.com's definition of profanity. We try to keep away from speech that might offend -- as the moderator with a medieval outlook, I agree I'm strict. That doesn't change the definition, though.

Frankly, from what I've seen in the past, your comments are frequently negative -- not just with this game, but with other games too. It's one thing to comment negatively on a game you've played. It's another to comment negatively on a game you haven't played, but are only speculating about, based on someone else's comments.

At GameBoomers, we try to show good examples. Since it is commonly considered that that word used in a certain context is a profanity - we do not use it here.

Not on my amazon. Are you sure you looking at DarkStar The Interactive Movie?

Darkstar is a neat name if you are making a Sci-Fi Movie/Game etc - Actually - there was Movie Darkstar - around 1970's I believe.

Anyway - This looks like a terrific game - FMV should really make a comeback (Yoomurjak's Ring i.e. - great !).

Can't wait to get a copy.


It's not the years honey, it's the mileage!

Hi Everyone,
Has anyone heard any "rumors" about Xmas sale pricing for this game? A friend mentioned this to me and cannot find where she read it. Would be fab if true. rah

Does anyone know much about the game's creator? From the game's website, it appears that this is the first game from the developer. But the game has been in development for years. Did the developer leave to make another game and then come back to finish this game?

There's an interesting interview with the Darkstar [J. Allen (Jeff) Williams] here at Adventure Classic Gaming.

Becky, thanks for the link. I missed this one.

It is a very long interview. I am most surprised by how the developer managed to hire the MST3K crew to do the movie. I wonder if there would be one day a Blue-Ray release of this game that would allow inclusion of film-quality videos instead of compressed videos. It sounds like the developer had to squeeze down the sizes of the FMVs to fit them onto the disc.

Does anyone know the minimum specs for this game please? The specs listed on the site look really high just wondering what it would run on even if its slow going. Thanks

Don't think my brothers specs are up to the 2ghz processor shame as he thought it looked like a really good game.
