Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Saturday 13 September 2014

A screenshot from one of the best Mystian adventures I’ve played: Morpheus (1998). Just thinking about it makes me want to play it again! I checked Mobygames to see if the developers had produced more adventures. But no, it’s Soap Bubble’s (what’s in a name) only game and publisher Piranha Interactive (what’s in a name) went under years ago.

Anyway, the Herculania is a spooky ghost ship. You explore the ship, meet the ghosts and learn more about their lives and tragic fate. I really must resist the urge to nominate Morpheus for a community playthrough…

There’re only two things I remember from playing Morpheus when it was released:

1) It demanded the horrendous Quick Time to be installed!

2) Exactly the scenes as this one - all I did was wondering aimlessly across the spooky ship deck. I might have met some ghosts, but by then I was probably already too benumbed by the dismal environment that I didn’t pay attention.

     

Recently finished: Four Last Things 4/5, Edna & Harvey: The Breakout 5/5, Chains of Satinav 3,95/5, A Vampyre Story 88, Sam Peters 3/5, Broken Sword 1 4,5/5, Broken Sword 2 4,3/5, Broken Sword 3 85, Broken Sword 5 81, Gray Matter 4/5\nCurrently playing: Broken Sword 4, Keepsake (Let\‘s Play), Callahan\‘s Crosstime Saloon (post-Community Playthrough)\nLooking forward to: A Playwright’s Tale

Didn’t manage to get inside, did you. Haha. That’s where the ghosts are.

Consider him stomped to the ground already (like the French team).

Morpheus is a great game.
It has its flaws (I also wrote about those), but the goodies prevail.

Well for god’s sake, nominate it and stop voting in games I’ve already played!* (That includes all of you!)

Ah, yes!  Morpheus is indeed a favorite of mine as well.  It has a creepy and intriguing story and good puzzles.  The acting is a bit over the top in places, but I loved the way getting to the different locations was handled.  It also had a neat ending.

     

I keep hitting the escape button, but somehow I’m still here.
