Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Wednesday 29 August 2012

I was going through the list of adventures I’ve played, looking for ideas, and I found two games called “Apprentice” and “Apprentice 2” which I have no recollection of ever playing. It turns out that they’re freeware AGS games from almost a decade ago, which got lots of awards in the day. I guess I must have liked the first one somewhat since I played the second one, but I have absolutely no memory of it. I played through a couple of screens of the first game, hoping I would remember something, but I really didn’t—that is, until I reached this screen, which definitely rang a bell. And then I realised that was because it was stolen from a homage to Curse of Monkey Island.

So, does anyone have any memory of the Apprentice series?

There was supposed to be third one, but I don’t think they ever finished it.

I vaguly remember enjoying the first two.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Apprentice is one of the better AGS short games. The problem is - it’s quite short. Wanted to play the sequel for some time now.
