Okay. We'll do this every few weeks. We used to do this on Four Fat Chicks, and it was jolly good fun! lol!

Which Adventure games have you bought, or acquired through trade, recently?
(Adventure games only please. See the Dark Siders section for other games bought/traded for).


I'm back in 'gotcha!' mood, and the gotchas I've snagged recently (either buying or trading for), are;

Gothos (boxed)
Scavenger Hunter (trade pending)
Tlon (on its way)
Curse of Enchantia (CD-ROM) - may regret this one. scratch

Yes I have heard that it is good but hard. I'm thinking about playing it after I finish Amber which is really good too, but kind of eerie.

I wonder if a single DVD-ROM version of Black Dahlia was ever made. Hmm!

What a fun thread Gelert.

Recently..Smile

Gothos
Elvira Mistress of the Dark (boxed)
Hard Evidence:The Marilyn Monroe Files (boxed)
Queensryche's Promised Land (boxed)

Part of the excitment of collecting is getting a great deal on a game you have been looking for. Hard Evidence The Monroe Files I purchased for $12.00. Since Black Dahlia was a find on this thread I need to share .... I found a boxed Black Dahlia at GoodWill for $1.99 in perfect condition. Yep...I did the Happy Dance right there in the middle of the store.

Hey Gelert

DVD version was never made of Black Dahlia that I know of but it is a DVD friendly game and plays perfectly by burning all the files from the 8 disks to a blank DVD. You will have to use a Dual Layered (DL) DVD as I did because the size of all the disks is a tad bit bigger than a regular DVD can hold. No disk swapping. cheers

I am so jealous of all you adventure gamers who have these thrift stores around to find bargains.

I found a sealed big box of Titanic Adventure out of Time and Mixed Up Mother Goose in JC at the Goodwill Store. And a perfect big box Beyond Atlantis.

Hi Ang!

The 'Of Light and Darkness' demo is something you have to see. Maybe it's fairly common. I don't know. But when I saw it I though "WOW!". It's the packaging that's so special. I'll put a pic up soon.

The 'Beverly Hillbillies' is a pretty poor game from what I've read but, as I'm a sucker for pretty boxes, and as I saw it at a low price, I just hadda have it. Know what I mean? Very Happy

Finally, the 'Horizon' game seems to be something very rare. The nice chap who sent it to me - he may pop by sometime. I hope so. - said he was given it to review but, because of Windows 7 incompatability issues, the game's release was abandoned.

Gelert I enjoy seeing what others have acquired too.

Is the Horizon game the same as the Lost Horizon game that was supposed to be coming out ?

No hats. It was a game being developed by someone called Justin Bianco but, back in 2005, it had to be abandoned because of incompatability issues with new Windows versions. Justin Bianco is South African. It's not easy to find much on it to be honest. Even the Wayback Machine throws up very little.

So Horizon is a completed adventure game that only a handful of reviewers got a chance to play?

You need to report more on this Gelert! At the very least give a review of it when you get around to playing it yourself...
