I wouldn’t mind replaying Jenny now that it has voiceacting, so one more vote from me.

oh wow, didn’t realize it came out without voice acting first. Just finished it recently and VO is top notch. Definitely worth checking out.

Don’t know how they managed to add voices. According to steamspy only 7000 copies were sold. Frown

They are part of Apple Arcade and I’m guessing that came with a significant investment from Apple? Sidenote, there’s quite a few interesting games on Apple Arcade that are adventure adjacent and that I’m not sure would have been successful without that.

I’d also be up for Jenny.

Ah, good to know. I don’t play games on my iPhone, but I did a Steam search and found quite a few Apple Arcade ones.

PS: One more vote for Return of the Phantom.

I don’t recall. When is the end date for nominations/votes for this playthrough?

Well that pretty much confirms to my mind that Ken Williams doesn’t have the slightest idea about game design.

This is hardly the venue for this discussion. I suggest another thread be opened for a continuation. Ken was never a game designer. That was Roberta’s forte. What he was good at was designing game design engines and business.

Another question regarding this thread. Posted to the moderators. Weren’t we supposed to archive old voting sessions?

Yes. All except the current and previous voting rounds. Which is exactly what’s left here. Wink

The archived thread is here.


And re: your previous question, voting ends on Wednesday, September 23rd.

Thanks for answering Tim’s question, TimovieMan.  I did post the date when I started the tally a couple of pages ago but was too busy last night to look it up myself.

I don’t think I’ve played a bad Microprose game, and based on the recent review Return of the Phantom should be worth a play. Sign me up.

Oh Dear! Jenny needs a leader. I think. I know a game doesn’t need a leader to win. But I don’t remember what happens when two games are tied and only one has a leader. And, if voting were to end today instead of Wednesday, there would be a three-way tie with only one game having a leader. I think a tied game is given the opportunity to find a leader. But we shall see what happens.
