Thanks for organizing the voting, Chrissie.  I’d like to nominate and volunteer to lead Tormentum: Dark Sorrow again.  I’ll have to check the requirements for some of the other games before I vote.

     

Sorry, Santa!  I meant to behave, but there were too many options.

I want to add a vote for St.Christopher’s School Lockdown.
I would have loved to try both Mikekelly games as I’ve heard really good stuff, but also don’t own the DS, unfortunately.

I, also, do not have a console player, of any brand, so I can’t vote for any game that’s only available on console. I’ll also lead the Lighthouse CPT. And it’s hard for me to vote for a game that would knock the game I nominated out of a first-place tie. But there are some games I think I would enjoy playing. We’ll see how things work out.

Edit: Back in the great old days of Compuserve and TEG, The Electronic Gamer forum, I participated in writing a walkthrough of Lighthouse. This was an honest-to-God MS Word walkthrough. Not a YouTube video. The main authors were Olga Karkalas and Janet Blackburn. If Lighthouse happens to win, I will be borrowing heavily from this group effort. Don’t even want anyone to think I am smart enough to do this by myself.

I’m also going to vote for Unforseen Incidents, which I bought from GOG about a month ago, and also add me to St. Christopher’s School Lockdown, Lighthouse, and Broken Sword.

I’ll nominate Lighthouse again. I have the discs, but it’s available on GOG, so that might be the easier way to go. Particularly if there’s a sale.

If you need it, there is an installer for the CD version of Lighthouse at

That’s great to know as I didn’t manage to finish the last part.
And to everyone in doubt: it’s NOT a Myst clone despite it was advertised as such at the time. In fact it is very heavy on inventory puzzles in a world inspired by Jules Verne. French developers behind Return to Mysterious Island and Voyage were obviously influenced by Lighthouse. It is criminally underrated.

I nominate The Unavowed, I will lead.

After all this time, it would be wonderful if it actually won.

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

I will certainly give that a try. Thanks. Of course everything depends on whether Lighthouse is still in the running as we approach the endgame. It’s been close so many times before.
