Name that Inventory!

After the runaway success of my original place that quote game followed by many pretenders
to my throne with their ‘place that..!’ spinoffs (I merely jest of course and I’m flattered! Grin), I’m going to put this out here and see if it has any takers. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. It’s dead simple. Name and limit a list to just 2 or 3 inventory items that will allow us to identify a specific game.

**(IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to google, it’s easy to find the solutions. To make it challenging, please try and alter wordings slightly then check if google brings up the answer. Example: instead of the original list I’ve left below, writing ‘walkthrough red cork, snake hide, hard to read sheet of paper’ and then googling wouldn’t bring up return to mysterious island II, which was the solution to my opening quiz question.) **

I’ll start then. Listed quite a few so should be easy Smile

Grindstone
Illegible sheet of paper
Slough of a snake
Red cork
Sextant sight
Hydrated lime
Ocarina

Google ; Write walkthrough followed by all the inventory items mentioned and the 1st result will be Mina’s Fate ..as Zifnab mentioned correctly

Not always. Typing “Walkthrough slime jar” doesn’t bring up Space Quest IV.

You can search for quotes and images too, we should trust our friends don’t.  Innocent

If you google it’s no fun anymore. It has to come from your brain!

RTMI 2, but good enough. Your turn. Smile


Hmm, it’s true that googling walkthrough plus the items does seem to mostly bring answers up. This may turn out to be too easy.

But that is much less likely to actually give you any result.

Sulfur

Legend of Kyrandia 2: Hand of Fate?

(I’m pretty sure about the sulfur and the moss, but I’m less certain about the scissors.)

Yes. I don’t imagine too many games have you walking round with a chunk of sulfur.

Yes. I don’t imagine too many games have you walking round with a chunk of sulfur.

In that vein, this one should be pretty unambiguous too:


a splitting headache
no tea
a thing your aunt gave you which you don’t know what it is

The absence of tea made it pretty obvious Smile

I’m, afraid i can’t think of any game with some unique items in the inventory, so you will just have to do with a list of some very common items you find in pretty much all inventories:

ID Card
Fire Extinguisher
Blanket
Severed Head
Axe
Batteries
