Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Wednesday 30 May 2012
There are lots of wtf moments in Hand of Fate, but that weird subterranean world is one of the worst. I think that’s where the game lost me — not just because it got even weirder than before, but also because from that point on it turns into a quick succession of very short “levels” instead of a cohesive experience.
I’ll be the first to call the Kyrandia games “classics”, but now that I think about it I realize I’ve never particularly liked any of them.
I tried all three Kyrandia games. Didn’t like them, left them unfinished. Still don’t understand what people saw in them.

Looking forward to: Ithaka of the Clouds; The Last Crown; all the kickstarter adventure games I supported

I have no idea what you’re talking about…
I always liked the look of this one but never played it. The weirdness might have appealed to me, and I love all the different outfits she seems to wear.
I keep hitting the escape button, but somehow I’m still here.
Never really liked the Kyrandia games all that much.
An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.
Let me then be the first to say that I loved Hand of Fate! Only, I’ve played it so long ago that don’t remember why anymore.
Didn’t care much for the other 2 Kyrandia games but I liked this one from the start, although I agree the endgame was less involving than the rest.
And I was stuck for two years at the last puzzle where you had to fiddle with some pixelated thingies and I never reconized that it was supposed to be the tower of Hanoi (which is of course a pretty lame endgame anyway).
Still, I liked it a lot. Zanthia’s voice acting probably helped too. 8)
I loved all the Kyrandia games, but some of it probably stems from me playing them alongside my big brother as a very young boy.
I’ve played second and third but never finished them. Not that they were bad, just hard and/or something came up I guess. I recognised Zanthia instantly so at least they are a little bit memorable. I should have the Malcolm’s Revenge on cd somewhere here.
