I will vote for Beneath a Steel Sky. I refuse to vote for Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars due to the grammatical error: if there are multiple templars then they should have multiple shadows, not one shadow. Well, unless they are conjoined twins.

It’s not a grammatical error. The Templars in this case are not multiple individuals but rather the collective of Knights Templar. As a collective, the Templars cast a single shadow, not multiple. Tongue

Still haven’t played Unavowed so I’m up for that. Replaying Beneath a Steel Sky would also be fun, especially now.

It didn’t come close last time, but I’ll re-nominate Lighthouse and offer to lead it.

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

I would also play Lighthouse.  Since I have a CD of Circle of Blood, which I may be able to run on one of my older Macs, so I’ll also vote for Broken Sword 1.  Does anyone know if there’s any difference between the two versions of the game other than the title?

Is Beneath a Steel Sky freeware? I know it’s available on GOG, but I’ve also found multiple sites where it can be downloaded. Most include the SCUMMVM installer.

I added your vote to my previous post, Advie.  Does the director’s cut apply to both the European and US releases?

I don’t know if Beneath a Steel Sky has been released officially as freeware, RT, but someone else might know.

Is Beneath a Steel Sky freeware?

It’s been freeware since 2003 according to the Wikipedia.
You can download it from the ScummVM website, where they have both the floppy and CD version of Beneath a Steel Sky, as well as other games released as freeware.
