It seems that there was a critical mass in favor of The Pandora Directive in the old thread. Are people still feeling good about that? With the Tex kickstarter afoot, there is no time like the present…

I would personally love love love a Pandora Directive playthrough! ...in about a week’s worth of time…

Well we had Overseer a few months back.

Has Toonstruck been done recently?

No. I’m afraid Toonstruck is not suitable for a community playthrough anyway - its puzzles can be solved in different order which means you’ll have to use spoilers throughout the whole playthrough and it would be tough to divide the playthrough in parts. On the plus side it is not too long, so it could be played in one go.

     

Tempting as it was, I decided not to start attacking people with the crowbar.

Toonstruck can be divided only in two parts - before and after you reach the castle, because I think every location before the castle can be reached in no particular order.

Somehow I completely missed the Tex Murphy games when they came out, but they look pretty good, so I wouldn’t mind playing The Pandora Directive.

I’ve never done a community playthrough before, though. How does it work? How long do we have to play through it? Since I work full time and have two young children at home, I have limited opportunities to play, and it may take me a while…

J-Boo, better late than never… Here are three links to the community playthroughs of GK1, Bad Mojo, and GAG. They should be typical examples, more or less. (Obviously, spoilers abound.)

Sughly on another site suggested I finally playthrough The Dig. Any one interested?

I remember I found the Full Throttle playthrough a little too slow for my liking, though. I ended up finishing early and writing up notes for the chapters weeks ahead of schedule. Tongue

With apologies to everyone uninterested in the Forum’s ancient history, who might just want to skip all the way down to the last paragraph.

Er. Hi all. You might rememeber me as the host who abandoned the Sanitarium playthrough halfway through in the Fall of 2010. Not that it matters now, but I just wanted to say that I’m extremely, extremely sorry about that. The reason, to cut the long story short, was the combination of the technical difficulties with running the game (which I had complained about already before disappearing) and being swamped with work to the degree I (foolishly) hadn’t predicted. But never mind that; obviously the time for the excuses was a-year-and-a-half ago, when I should have owned up to lacking time and officially passed the torch to someone else, rather than every day delude myself into belief that I would find time to restart that damn playthrough… “tomorrow”. Frown

So yeah: sorry; hopefully I’ll be able to repay it to this fantastic community in one way or another in future (not volunteering to conduct a playthrough at the moment though — I’d learnt my lesson!). But more importantly: thank you. Thank you to the dedicated forumites who perservered and completed the communal playthrough of this stunning game anyway. With the special shout out to, of course, seagul, the newly-appointed playthrough leader, whose dedication and insight made her positively perfect for the job.

Again, sorry for hijacking the thread a bit. (I would have preferred to sort this via Private Messages really, but I honestly couldn’t decide how wide — or how narrow — the recipients list should be, so this thread seemed the most fitting altetnative). If anyone wants to reply to me about this particular point, please use PM so as not to derail it any further.

So, um, yeah, I think the timing would be great for Pandora Directive, although I’ve got to ask a) if it’s linear enough and b) is there any particular reason not to go through Under A Killing Moon first?

I’ve already started to play Under a Killing Moon (At Eric Chin’s house in Day 2).

I could wait for people to catch up if that is what people are playing.

     

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.

The non-linearity/divergent paths will be difficult to implement in a playthrough thread but I think that will be more than offset by the ability to discuss the different possibilities with the other forumites. IMHO the non-linearity is also a good reason to choose TPD over UAKM…

I would totally love a playthrough of Pandora Detective! Played UAKM and loved it, keen to try the others now that it is on sale at GOG.

Gosh, I would love to participate in a Tex Murphy community playthrough, but won’t have available time for it until mid-July. I’ll keep an eye on the thread though!

I’d love a community playthrough, but I’m sitting this one out if it’s Pandora Directive, though.

I’ve got the Tex Murphy games closing in fast on my list of games to play, but I’ve never played any of them before, so I’d actually prefer to play them in order, starting with Under a Killing Moon (or even Martian Memorandum)...

Definitely interested in a Pandora Detective playthrough. But, is there anyone to lead it?

I’m totally in Tex Murphy mode, and have just finished Mean Streets (fun!), so would vote for Martian Memorandum if at all possible.
