Not Roki. But it’s a good guess. The game has something in common with Roki.

I just checked the screenshots. You’re right. And what’s with that title - Miazma or the Devil’s Stone? Is is it a choice between Miazma and the Devil’s Stone, or is Devil’s Stone another name for Miazma?  Embarassed

I have played the game and still don’t know! Embarassed

Miaz/s/ma is the fumes the stone gives off when cut (this is actually purely scientific) but, according to the folklore built up during the game, the stone in question gets thought of as the Devil’s Stone due to the problems it causes (this is actually purely unscientific).
What annoyed me is that is one of the games I’m sort of playing at the moment and didn’t recognise any of the pictures Confused

As a side point to this I discovered something about Miazma (definitely no s here) which isn’t relevant to this thread but I’ve posted about it here:

I saw what you did there, Zorba.  Sarcastic

Yeah, I quoted* a quote with a quote in it that had a quote incorporated in a quote.
* to basically say nothing

Nothing extraordinary for this forum, we’ve seen it million times before. Foot in mouth

Yes, Year Walk.

@diego: based on Scandinavian folklore, same as Roki. But I prefer Oknytt.

I installed Year Walk a week or so ago and hope to try it soon.

Next is a section of an old photo:

The old guy in the front looks like Armin Mueller-Stahl. I don’t remember him playing in an AG??? Tongue

You are correct, Mr. Z.! 

Timo,
I looked up Stahl’s career and have only seen him in Shine, but his face is very familiar.  He’s better looking than that strange old scientist in Gadget.

I highly recommend the 1989 movie “Music Box”. Been a fan ever since.

I like how well he can play both good guys and villains, even at the same time. In Eastern Promises he’s a nice, loving grandfather for his grandkids while also being a ruthless, terrifying mob boss. Superb actor.

Looks like it could be from one of the cutscenes in one of the CSI games. Random guess: Deadly Intent?

i don’t think this is SQ6 due to the graphics, but I may guess it is Next Life?
