Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Friday 20 December 2013
Ghostly Desires (1995) looks okay when you take a quick glance at a screenshot like this, but as a game it’s really just a handful of easy puzzles as obstacles to watching poorly done softporn videos. I don’t recommend it.
Steve Ramsey explains what kind of game you’re dealing with:
Lest you be too flustered to be able to remember the tune to Twinkle Twinkle, or too impatient to be bothered, there is a book in the library that automatically solves the last attempted puzzle for you. And lest you need to quickly hide what you are doing, click on the little exclamation mark and the screen is replaced by a fake windows desktop with desktop icons titled “charity gala” and the like. Two little touches that show that the makers were really thinking about their audience.
He named the paragraph Stop it or you’ll go blind.

How poorly done? Do you have any stills/videos you can link to in order to show what you mean?

I’m hoping to find name for game that I played long ago
The people here so well-informed, someone is sure to know
A time machine, grandfather clock, I give it to myself
Oh never mind, the box is sitting there upon my shelf
For real retro gaming nerds, name that game.
