BEGINNINGS!

My 1st ‘tribute’ screen is to Bastich & taken from the Prologue of Silverload (1995) which he featured on Saturday July 27 2013

Bastich doesn’t claim that this game is a favourite but I’ve gleaned that the theme is!


“I’ve seen the death and madness that haunt the shadows of this town”

The Prologue in the PC version is over 12+ minutes long which very slo-o-owly gives some background to the town of Silverload.

Presented in comic book form it’s very unrepresentative of the main graphics of the game which is something that also appeals to me. Although the PC version was completely panned the completely re-worked PS1 version was praised in one review as having “great graphics and a compelling horror story”.

chrissie, you’ve just wasted a perfectly good screenshot to last in the “Adventure game scene… uh, game” more than a few minutes. Grin

Just think about how many screenshots Bastich had wasted: I hardly recognised any of those dailies, although there (almost) wasn’t a game he wrote about I didn’t hear of.

One more thing: Silverload has such a distinctive graphics that it wouldn’t be so hard for anyone who saw it once before to recognise it.
I’ll let you in on a secret: I recognised Larry 5 just by the textures & colo(u)r palette, it’s distinctive too.

BTW, the picture reminds me of a joke: (beware of the “lost in translation” Grin)

A man gets a job in the grocery warehouse. Everything went fine, until mysteriously some sack contents start missing one by one. When it was found out, the man gets sent to the court. The Judge asks the man: “Ok, so what happened to that flour sack?”

- Mice ate it, sir!

“And the sugar?”, asked the Judge.

- Mice ate that, too!

“What about the corn sacks?”

- “All that was eaten by mice” - says the man.

“OK, are you trying to tell me that mice ate the pepper too?!”

- They cried, but ate it all!

Grin

I’ve posted a screenshot you’ve never seen before zobraks!!! Thank you! - I’m glad you like it! It’s an ‘in-game special’ Grin , but unless you search all the screenshot galleries on the net you can never be sure one hasn’t been used before!

There’s just a teensy weensy problem with that diego - you have to guess the screen before to post your own unless a freebie turns up & I keep missing them!

Wink Oops! did I post the wrong screenshot for the game - sorry! 

Hey! It could have been a great pic for the Caption Contest - maybe? Heart Eyes

I think werewolves are allergic to silver especially in bullet form & vampires to wooden stakes especially through the heart.  Smile

I believe that’s exactly what I did!

Seriously, I don’t think there’s a major site with screenshots that I haven’t visited.

I can confirm this. Last Halloween, I killed a vampire. Or a kid. Either way, the wooden stake worked! Innocent Grin
