I couldn't agree more! I'm still kinda sad that we didn't get to see The Wheels of Time like it originally was intended. Though the concept sounded impossibly ambitious anyway, and it wasn't necessarily wholly an adventure game either, but certainly something else than the first person shooter we got...

Anyway, Mission Critical wasn't a licensed IP either. Dunno how successful it was. I would love to see it on GOG, DotEmu or similar.

Gabriel Knight games have very nice patches available, I recently played all three from my old cd-rom versions and they worked perfectly. So GoG purchase is not needed, though the games are so cheap that just go ahead, GoG is a good place to show your support .

I have bought Tex and Broken Sword series (even though I had the 1st game as remastered Steam version and second as old cd version) and then some random adventures on sale. Have a long wishlist there and grabbing some of the titles on every sale.

I really hope they would get all the rare and currently badly working adventure titles.

I would love to see the Legend games on GOG as well, even if licensing issues prevent some of the best ones from showing up there. Unfortunately GOG seems more and more focused on releasing new games these days... they even stopped calling themselves "Good Old Games"

I can't get the GOG version of Pandora Directive to work on my PC.

Thanks...I have already checked that out and a bunch of other sites and no one seems to know how to fix it. The problem is actually with Overseer and not Pandora's Directive like I originally said.

I love how they've got lots of the old horror adventures that're bloody hard to find/run - 7th Guest, Dark Fall, Sanitarium etc. If they ever got Blackstone Chronicles, I Have No Mouth... and Amber: Journeys Beyond I'd probably mess my pants. Haven't had a PC that'll run them in years.

I ran Blackstone Chronicles on an XP system no problem a couple years ago. Not sure about I Have No Mouth....

For Amber: Journeys Beyond, use Squirt the Cat's installer.

This worked well for me in XP except for one part near the end of the game where you have to type something. I simply couldn't pass that part, but someone posted a save file allowing people to have the password entered and finish the game.

Sweet, thanks for the Amber tips mate, I'll be trying those tomorrow! I had Blackstone working on my old XP but when I upgraded it kept crashing out on the intro. I only get to enjoy the fantastically cheesy voiceover for a few mins now...better than nowt, I guess

Actually, I Have No Mouth... is compatible with ScummVM.

Many of the GOG releases make use of DOSBox and ScummVM to make them run on modern systems. Its the Windows only games can be more involved to get running properly. GOG is great if you do not already own the game, but there are often third party solutions if you do.

I have Dark Fall but never had any problem running it in Win7.Did you try the usual administrator rights/compatibility mode(windows sth) ??

Yeah, sadly kept glitching out on my laptop - and my patience isn't what it used to be. Back in the day I'd spend hours trying to get old games to work, these days I give up after 10 mins

Cheers for the tips on ScummVM etc guys, I'll give that one a bash too. I really should've just kept my old laptop instead of throwing it out, was a dumbass move

Does GOG use ScummVM with those games? If not you might be better off just using that and forgetting about whatever GOG uses.

Finally! I never understood why it was the only Sierra series that hadn't been re-released digitally. Now people have no excuse not to have played these fantastic games.
