Riddle of Master Lu had a rather stiff protagonist but did fairly well in replicating an early 20th century cinematic adventuring atmosphere. Heart of China could go in the same category.

On the other side I really like Agon’s charming Victorian protagonist and seeing different parts of the world represented in that era.

Would Timequest be historical? I think so, in the same way that Journeyman Project was. Plus you got to go to interesting places, Peking, Baghdad, Cairo. Therefore the winner is Timequest!

Yes, TimeQuest! Rome, Caesar, Cleopatra, Arthur, Churchill, and many more. A game on the threshold between text adventures (no typing necessary) and graphical adventures. Highly recommended.


Now playing: ——-
Recently finished: don’t remember

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

Anglophile Adventure! I hope they really make it.

I like the Victorian era, Sherlock Holmes and Alter Ego and such. I don’t really feel that contemporary games which have history in them are really historical games but if they count here then I surely agree with GK trilogy.


Currently playing: Donut County, Drake Hollow, Genshin Impact
Recently played: Haven, Oknytt (CPT), Astrologaster, Observation, Carto, GreedFall, The Shivah, Spiritfarer, Airborne Kingdom, Gibbous
My game reviews and other stuff: Lux Atarnia

trust me, the last thing you want to see is a sobbing demon! Wink

I thought that if you see a demon sobbing, that will literally be the last thing you see…  Tongue

Also not really a historical adventure game but I also really like Lost Horizon. It had very good main characters and a nice story with some real history integrated in it. And it did very well convey the 30s mood and feeling.

^ This.

Otherwise I’d have NO favourite historical games. I haven’t played any of the titles mentioned in this thread, not even the Gabriel Knight games and The Last Express (but check my “next in line”-games in my signature Innocent ) and I never cared for the Broken Sword games…

From a truly historical perspective I would have to nominate Qin. Unfortunately, it is possibly one of the most boring games I ever played.

precisely. Theres somthing very intriguing about qin, and it has a very nice atmosphere. But it is relentlessly boring.

Im going to go ahead and pick the tex murphy games, because we all know chris jones is a time traveler who came to us to make historical games about his time.
