Lady K. I think you forgot Vegetable’s votes. And put my vote on Still Life as well.

DCast - 21 April 2021 04:46 PM

Right there with you on that. Game has also made an impression on me, and I still remember the feeling.

And, yes, learned who “Theory of a Deadman” were after that game, got a CD (man, miss those CD days!), and ended up going to their concert - good times! All inspired by the game’s soundtrack

According to Wikipedia:

“Atari, Inc. published Fahrenheit for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, and Xbox in Europe and North America on 16 and 20 September 2005, respectively.[38][39] It was made downloadable on Xbox 360 in 2007.[4] Fahrenheit was renamed Indigo Prophecy in North America to avoid confusion with the 2004 film Fahrenheit 9/11,[7][40] a point of contention between Cage and Atari.[41] Sex scenes were omitted from this version, but included in Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered, which launched for Windows, Android, iOS, Linux, and macOS in 2015, and PlayStation 4 in 2016.[2][40]”

I have only played original (not North American) version, but the disc is unavailable to me. I own remastered one on Steam and haven’t played it yet, but it seems they added stuff rather than removed, so there shouldn’t be any difference between those, unless the original game anyone owned was the aforementioned censored version…


Please, add my vote for Still Life, Lady K

The same thing happened to me. I didn’t know this band, it was thanks to this game that I discovered them and needless to say that I spent countless nights listening to them by candlelight <3. I still have the soundtrack on my PC.
Did you go to their concert? Ah that’s awesome!

My game definitely had sex scenes, I think I read that they were censored in the US version. What a stupid thing to censor, don’t you think? This element of inclusion in the narrative added an even stronger personal content to the relationship between the characters, and that was something I personally hadn’t seen before. By the end of the game I was very involved with both of them.

Here is my ad:

Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet An award winning highly rated game (4 Star Rated Review:

“Nelly Cootalot’s latest voyage is overflowing with charm and heart – and puns, oh the puns! It may not be the stiffest challenge out there, but it’ll leave you with a warm feeling inside.”)

2016 Aggie Award - Readers’ Choice: Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet

“The Aggie Awards - The Best Adventure Games of 2016 - It probably wouldn’t surprise you to know that Alasdair Beckett-King is a stand-up comedian. It’s definitely no secret that he’s every bit as funny as a sit-down developer, with his swashbuckling pirate adventure Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet taking first place for top comic adventure writing. Led by its plucky eponymous heroine, who banters with Vikings, teases down-on-their-luck toffs, outwits and out-gabs a snooty bureaucrat and can snark with the very best, this tale of birds and brothers provides a constant barrage of groan-inducing puns (the best kind!), witty repartee, endearingly offbeat characters and wacky situations. It’s all so very British, sure to elicit snickers, snorts, and even the occasional guffaw while keeping a silly grin on any player’s face throughout. Well done, Alasdair. Stand up and tell a joke take a bow!”

The Good:
Interesting approach to suspect interrogation
Great acting
Sharp FMV visuals
In-game radio station does a good job of setting the mood
Highly replayable

Laky K, I voted for Still Life as well.

And if the shapeshifting detective is that cello, he is carrying out a close investigation…

......Also, since there was so much positive talk about Culpa Innata - I figured it could be a great community replay of a game I have very vague but very fond memories of, however, thanks to all that reminded me of its non-linear element, I’m not quite sure it will work for CPT. I’d like to nominate it and see what everyone thinks about doing it in this format.
Thanks!

I’ve played the game twice & can categorically state that it is not suitable for a community playthrough…..why?.....because it doesn’t fall neatly into a neat pattern where all participants are more or less at the same place at each stopping point.

Do they need to be?

I took a chance on leading Blade Runner as I researched enough to realise that every chapter started & ended the same with variations on how you got there within those chapters which seemed to work.
Culpa Innata doesn’t work the same way & there’s no way of directing anyone, as in the Shivers playthrough, as every conversation has choices which can change the course. 
But, this is such an interesting game I vote for it. 

I can’t offer to lead it Lady Kestrel but I would be happy enough to host a thread for it but I would prefer my ‘title’ to be ‘Host’ rather than ‘Leader’.

The game is split into days so that the only way that a playthrough can work is to accept on playing that at the end of each day, more so as the game progresses, that many players are going to be in different places. But that could be interesting but should come back to the same place in the end.

I totally agree with chrissie. The only way to make a CTP with Culpa Innata is splitiing into days and God helps everybody for searching…

Even Shivers had problems. All it takes is someone, such as me, to accidentally solve a puzzle we weren’t supposed to solve. Which opens more areas for exploration that I wasn’t supposed to explore, but I didn’t know that. Shivers 2 would have been even more difficult to lead since you can’t really direct a person to a specific tangram in the cave.

I like the term host. At a cocktail party, the leader can tell everyone that the chardonnay is what they must drink. The host leaves the option to select a vodka martini.

Anyone in the mood for something simple and easy? (and classic!) It seems the last couple of playthroughs have been puzzle intensive and I’m sure I’m not the only one in need of a break.

I therefore nominate…
Return Of The Phantom

Everyone should be system compatible. You’ve all got 486’s right? Grin

Everyone’s played the Dig by now. Has anyone played this?

I’m currently playing Inspector Waffles - a one-man French game released this year - and can’t help but think it would’ve made a great CPT. It is linear and neatly divided into chapters, also not hard, but well-designed, with both inventory and dialogue puzzles presented as well as some original touches and at least two different playable characters (at different times). It’s also a great mix of mystery and comedy. In fact the game resembles The Darkside Detective with its highly pixelated graphics, only it’s much funnier. While I’m not a big fan of highly pixelated graphics, anthropomorphic animals or cat/dog puns and was a bit skeptical at first, the game won me quickly. Very good writing, great balance between comedy and the noir genre. Might not be exactly a 4.5/5 star adventure (according to the AG review), but a very enjoyable game so far. Maybe someone is interested in joining.

Sounds good to me. Can’t vote for Return Of The Phantom until its availability, and source are known.

Did you click the link?  Smile
All the info is there. It’s $9.99 on GOG.

You may get several people interested in joining. But, of course. it all depends on which game wins the current CPT vote.
