We've reached 20 pages on the previous Name the Game thread, and so I'm starting another one. If anyone would like to view the previous Name the Game thread, you'll find Page 1 of the thread here.


For those who are joining us for the first time for Name the Game, this is the procedure:


One person (hereinafter known as "It") posts a clue to an adventure game. The clue can be simple or difficult or straightforward or creative. Clues can be information about characters or events or puzzles or more (though we do try to stay away from outright puzzle spoilers).

Everyone who wishes to participate can post the name of the game that best matches the clue. If no one has guessed after an attempt or two (or if a day passes with no guesses), "It" gives another clue. The person who guesses correctly then becomes "It" and posts a clue for a different game, and so on. If you've posted a guess, or if you are "It," check back every day to see if you've guessed right or if you need to identify the correct guesser, so the game continues smoothly!

(When thinking up clues, a good place to look for possible ideas is the GameBoomers collection of adventure walkthroughs -- plenty of inspiration there.)


I am currently IT.

Clue #1 Refers to One Word in the Title of the Game I'm Thinking Of:

Better than cheap


****************************************

(For those interested, the current thread titles are listed below.)

Really, this is a guess. I haven't played it so I didn't know there were episodes.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People?

But if that's right, I don't get where "better than cheap" comes in. Would you mind elucidating? razz

"Better than cheap" is a word in the title of the particular episode.

Clue #4: The Episode's title also includes a word that is in the title of this thread.

Am I being too demanding??? eek

Sounds like an older game with a tricky interface. My guess -- Labyrinth of Time?
