Here are 10 screenshots from the games… or so it seems. Something is not quite right on those pictures, as it’s impossible that they could have been taken from the game in question. Can you deduce why?

Please send your answers via PM (you have only one try per pic). I’ll give you until Sunday, May 3, 12:00PM CET to give me answers


1. The Secret of Monkey Island


2. Grim Fandango


3. Broken Sword 2


4. Thimbleweed Park


5. Day of the Tentacle


6. Gabriel Knight 1


7. Zork


8. Discworld Noir


9. Toonstruck


10. Edna & Harvey: The Breakout

Two players with a perfect score, and a tight battle for the first three places, others following closely. First, let’s see the answers:

1. This is a scene from Monkey Island 1 CD version featuring “Monkey Island 2-like” interface. However, “Head of the navigator” inventory item is out of place - you cannot have it before your arrive to Monkey Island.

2. Everything is mirrored. In other words, Manny should be holding scythe in his right hand.

3. While Caffè is the Italian word for coffee, it has no place in Paris. The sign should be saying “Cafè”

4. I haven’t played the game and didn’t realize I used the scene from Kickstarter campaign, rather than an in-game screenshot. Everyone who said something along those lines gets a point. “Get” should be “Pick up”, too.

5. Colors reversed - purple tentacle should be the baddie, not green.

6. The game has total of 10 days.

7. The very start of the game - you cannot have 5 points.

8. While the famous misquote from “Casablanca” - “Play it again, Sam” is not featured in the movie, it is in Discworld Noir. When talking to Samael the pianist, Lewton says: “Play it again, Sam.”

9. The footman has an extra toe. (many of you thought it has something to do with Flux icon - however, you can “Use Flux” and the cursor changes to Flux image, even when you move it to an “Exit” - by the way, “Palace Hallway” is an adjacent location, thus correctly subtitled when cursor is over the exit hotspot).

10. The scene is from the original game (the verb interface at the bottom is a give away), and the verb coin from Anniversary Edition is misplaced.


Scores:

OzzieMonkey 10
Pegbiter 10

Jabod 9

Lady Kestrel 8
Karlok 8
Doom 8
NickyLarson 8
eddyc 8

chrissie 7
namehaver 7
Cicerone53 7
Mike the Wino 6
Vehelon 5
Advie 1 (out of 1 try, you’ve been lazy this time!)


Congratulation to all the players! The second part of the quiz will be up shortly!

I got both right, so I take it I get TWO points.  Innocent
Looking forward to the next part!

That was fun diego! Speaking of Discworld Noir, didn’t GOG used to have it for sale? Can’t find it there or anywhere else for that matter, and I’ve never played it. I’d sure like to, though!
