Guess that Adventure Game
« on: March 30, 2011, 11:46:03 PM »
So in this post Katie requested another guessing game ...

http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=10511.msg321425#msg32142

... so I have decided to deliver!  Unlike in the other thread, I know which game this is ... the question is ... do YOU know?

This is how this will work:

1. I mention 3 features of a specific adventure game.
2. People guess what game I'm talking about.
3. Whoever makes the first correct guess gets to mention 3 features of ANOTHER adventure game
4. And the game continues
5. If whoever made the last correct guess doesn't start a new challenge within 2 days, anyone can restart the guessing game by mentioned 3 features of a specific adventure game

So, the first game has the following three features

1. You have to cross a frozen lake (you can use a gold/purple heart to navigate it)
2. You have to answer riddles to cross a barrier
3. You can be killed by poisonous rats

Enjoy!

EDIT: And try to avoid major spoilers, thanks!

Fable? (not the more recent XBox series, the older one that's an adventure game...and apparently a really bad one)

I've wanted to play that old game. I wish gog had it. It may be bad, but that's exactly why I want to play it...

Well, Toegoff has an LP of it, if you want to just watch that in the meantime.

Yeah that's a really interesting game - I think I actually have it around here somewhere.  Definitely a VERY odd story and I believe there's a bunch of extra stuff you can pick up that was supposedly going to be for a sequel or something that just never happened.

Harvest Moon isn't really an adventure game... It's more of a simulation game...

I don't think you can actually "die" in Harvest Moon either.

Life, dear sir, is an adventure itself. And is there no better way to have one, than through this wonderful computerized world which we call simulation?

It doesn't negate the fact that Harvest Moon isn't categorized as an adventure game, nor are any of it's many incarnations.

Considering Rado was the first person to answer (and correctly at that), I think it's his turn to think of a game.

1. The action takes place across two worlds. These worlds mirror each other.
2. The plot unravels in real time. The main character has only three days to solve the mystery.
3. The main character's neighbor is a lawyer and has a dog who loves to fetch.

I would say The Longest Journey, but that doesn't fit with the 2nd and 3rd points. Fits the first one rather perfectly though. I haven't played Dreamfall so I can't vouch if that game fits at all.
