thought ye have just forgotten Timo, Tongue Laughing

I ll play Loom with Doom and Donuts McGee, and will lead, maybe i can make it worth a while for its music perspective; adding some extra trivia here and there if it won.

I wouldn’t mind replaying Jenny now that it has voiceacting, so one more vote from me.

oh wow, didn’t realize it came out without voice acting first. Just finished it recently and VO is top notch. Definitely worth checking out.

Don’t know how they managed to add voices. According to steamspy only 7000 copies were sold. Frown

I wouldn’t play:
Lighthouse (played it a long time ago and thought it sucked)

Well, there’s now a posted walkthrough for the game. Maybe you should take a look. See what you did that resulted in your negative opinion, and say you’ll give it a shot and lead the game.

I almost want to say yes, just so we can get the playthrough out of the way and never have to talk about the game again.

But yes, it was probably frustration with some part of the game, given I was young at the time. I remember some recurring event and the game giving you no idea what you’re supposed to do. But then, this was Sierra’s attempt to capitalize on Myst’s success, so they probably thought it was a good idea to throw obtuse puzzles in there.

I have been thinking about volunteering to lead Lighthouse, but I have to check to see which of my older Macs will run my CDs before I commit to it.

Only partially true. Sierra had already gone the Myst route with the two Shivers games. According to my correspondence with Jon Bock back in the Compuserve days, this was not only a Myst-type game, but it was Ken Williams’ idea for an entre into a Lara Croft-type game. Personally, I see no comparison between the two, but I will take the designer at his word.
