Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Tribute to the first cd-rom pc video games. Live action ftw
What games do you remember playing when you first got a cd-rom drive in your computer. I remember every one of them because they were all awesome, and live action video recordings
First, there was Inca and Inca II
Great games involving lots of puzzles, space combat simulation, and a fps type of deal. Loved these games
Then, there was Critical Path
Another puzzle game where you just went around figuring out tricks to get around bad guys and this factory I think. Never got far in this game because it was too hard.
Now, for an obscure game, has anyone ever played Phantasmagoria, specifically, Phantasmagoria 7. Yeah, it took 7 cds. 1 cd per chapter. Game was INSANE. The last 2 chapters were so gory. You spent 5 chapters doing lame stuff which I used the in game hints to get through. Then, at the end, you spend the whole time running from this crazy fucking demon who tries to rip your face in half, or put you in a guillotine (but this guillotine splits your skull in half) or smashes your face into a wine glass. Bear in mind, they show all of these greusome deaths in graphic, live action, detail.
Reason I bring this up is I found all of mine in a shoebox the other day when I was cleaning and it brought back memories.
