Anyone other than me own and/or has played [email protected] (1997)? If not, you aren’t really missing anything. It’s short and not all that great, particularly the awful timed ending.

Calling this atrocity a game is a compliment it doesn’t deserve. There are unwritten rules in gaming, which [email protected] happily ignores.  When that timed sequence against the computer starts, you don’t know what you’re supposed to do. [email protected] obligingly supplies instructions but you don’t get the time to read them. You lose, the whole thing is over in seconds. Bad? It gets worse. Your one and only save is deleted when you lose. Yep, deleted.  You have to start all over again.

I always thought [email protected] was almost like [email protected], that’s where my nick came from.

I’d believe that if I didn’t know where it really comes from.

Fortunately the game is so short that you can get back there in like half an hour. Needless to say I backed up my saved game right before that puzzle the 2nd time around so they couldn’t delete it on me. But yes, I agree that that is probably the lowest trick in the book of crappy game development.

Adventure at the Chateau d’Or did something similar with a timed sequence, as I’m sure you know. Not the file deletion though. I think it was in the wine cellar. You had to find a hidden object and read a document before the cellar flooded. I tried twice and then left the Chateau in disgust.
