There is a new version of this old game, remade into a casual, hidden object, adventure game, Lost Civilization, that is very sweet. The main character is female this time, but the story of NiBiRu remains and it brought back some great memories for me. Those were the days, but this new mix of old and new was great to play all on its own. I even enjoyed watching the opening with the Icarus Games logo coming on, showing Icarus trying out his wings. Just in case one doesn't remember, Icarus was the Greek god who flew too close to the sun (after being warned not to do so, I think) and the wax wings melted. I'm not sure what happened next, but it wasn't anything good, I bet!

I remember NiBiRu. I loved that game.  I saw the casual and tried the demo. I was impressed and enjoyed it. Did you play the whole game mindysue ? {the casual } 

The ending for Icarus was definitely not good. When his wax wings melted he fell into the sea and drowned.

I not only played the whole game, but I liked it so much that I am replaying it! Now I wish more of the old adventure game makers would do the same thing and revamp their old, favorite games into the casual format. Methinks the mix of old and new works out very well indeed. Better than I would have expected if I hadn't played Lost Civilization.
About Icarus, my thanks, hatshepsut, for the news about the ending. I'm thinking that it is just too bad that he didn't know how to swim!

I just watched the gameplay on youtube, as I hadn't ever heard of this game. It either reminds me of Riddle of Master Lu or a Sherlock Holmes game. Is it?

It's not like Sherlock Holmes, no detectives or murders. I don't know Riddle of Master Lu,, never played it. I would say it is more like Indiana Jones with archeologists looking for ancient artifacts. Old ruins, tunnels, temples and their mysteries.
