Black Dahlia (1998) is, without a doubt, one of my favorite FMV games. It’s not perfect. It kind of loses momentum when the story shifts halfway through, but the puzzles are challenging, the way it weaves actual historical events into its fictional tale is quite interesting, and its dark theme is certainly appealing for someone with my tastes. I only wish it played better on modern PCs.

For some reason, the above scene makes me think of the children’s game “I spy with my little eye…”

Coincidently, I’m just replaying it. Great game!

Great game. Puzzles were some of the most difficult I’ve found in any game. One, the Rune puzzle, was actually impossible to solve given the tools you have.

Even with a walkthrough I failed to complete that one! And the card folding puzzle

But yes, one of my top 5 games of all time.

Some years ago I borrowed a friend my copy of this game - I have never seen it or him again!

I quite liked the game and I would have liked to replay it. Oh well there is probably some morale in this.

You know the game is good when someone is ready to break the friendship for it. Grin

By far the most difficult game I ever played.
That damn safe…

Interestingly, I participated in writing a WT for this game. A good friend Olga Karkalas did the basic WT. Another, Janet Blackburn, did the hex code cracking for the “Skip” text entry. I did the graphics, including the cheat solution to the Rune puzzle.

This was WAY back in the days of the GAMERS forum on CompuServe.

Unlike today’s WTs, this was done in MS WORD.

I still have it, the Word WT. If anyone would be interested in seeing it send me a PM and I can send it via email.

I thought I’d take a look at the WT I have. It’s by a character called Quatro from 1998.

I only ever used it when I really had to (rather more than any other game I freely admit) but what I hadn’t noticed was the number of Easter Eggs in the game. In fact the only one I knew of was to get Jim to spin round quickly with little birds tweeting round his head (and doesn’t he tell you off for doing it afterwards?).  Apparently there are 7(!) more eggs to be found.

And, as looking at the WT reminded me, there is a patch available if anyone decides to have a go at this game (if they can find a reasonably priced copy) which resolves a number of bugs one of which, I think, is when putting a rune into the wire framework you can’t remove it afterwards even if it’s in the wrong place.
