Adventure game scene… uh, game (continued)

That’s correct! Congratulations from Toby.

The game has a few interesting settings and mechanics, however I’m not sure I would recommend it. It features tiresome QTEs and a rather clumsy action sequence; plus, the storyline itself felt like a bit of a letdown. I liked Crimes & Punishments better.

Anyway - your turn, chrissie Smile

Run for the hills! Women, children, Red Indians and astronauts first.

What’s a QTE?

QTE=quick time event or, more properly, quickly timed event

     

Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

Speaking of Toby, if anybody is still interested in playing text adventures, I highly recommend Toby’s Nose. You play as Holmes’ dog and your superb sense of smell is vital to the case at hand. You can even detect smells within smells! Not very hard and very well written.

“You’ll excuse me if I fail to appreciate why there is a dog in my drawing-room,” interrupts Lady Argente. “It seems entirely unnecessary, not to mention unsanitary.”

“I will excuse you, madam. Ignorance should always be answered with compassion. The dog in question is none other than the great Toby. He has sniffed out more criminals in his day than most policemen could hope to catch in a career. That is because I have trained him myself.

Back on topic: I have no idea in what game those little chicks live.  Innocent

The chicks live in the same game as this guy who’s definitely not a farmer:

I thought that artwork looked a tad Mike Judge-y. So on further research it’s from Beavis and Butthead Do U, a game which I’ve played and enjoyed a lot, although I can’t remember those particular screens.

That’s it. I always wonder to whom the game is “also known as” Sublustrum, because I’ve never heard anyone refer to it as that.

It’s the original (Russian) title.
So it should be Sublustrum aka Outcry actually.
