Nope, this isn’t my end of (last) year anime rankings post either. 😛 Though I still have unfinished business from 2018 to deal with, time marches on regardless. Next post, I promise!
Another game from my childhood, though I mostly just played the tutorial and first level of the original (non-Gold) Thief: The Dark Project, which was free on an old demo disc. When I did eventually buy the full game, I never managed to get past level 2. Time to fix that!
Thief Gold (1999) – Stealth, PC
Nothing I say here is going to do as good a job of grabbing people’s attention as that game title, so let’s move swiftly on…
Rex Nebular and the Cosmic Gender Bender (1992) – Point-and-click adventure, PC.
Halloween may still be over a week away, but try telling that to the zombie horde that’s rapidly gathering outside your home… 😛
As with many other newer games I’ve reviewed here, screenshots feature small text designed to be read at much higher resolutions than this blog format allows (I might get around to updating it one day!) – in the meantime, opening images in a new tab and deleting the ?w=450 part of the url will let you see them in full-size.
Zafehouse: Diaries (2012) – Stragegy, PC.
Unfinished business from my childhood… not only did I get the nostalgia factor, but also the satisfaction of finally seeing the story through to the end. 😀
Entomorph: Plague of the Darkfall (1995) – RPG, PC
No post next week, as I’m away visiting relatives. Expect my mid-season anime thoughts in early September… where is this year disappearing to?
Anyway, this is the only visual novel I’ve ever played… read? Experienced. And it isn’t even related to an anime series, though there are obvious influences from and references to Sailor Moon, among other things. 😀
I can’t do much about the whole image resizing thing, so if you want a closer look at the screenshots, open the image in a new tab and delete the ‘?w=450’ part.
We Know the Devil (2015) – Visual novel, PC.
I’m currently playing through Under a Killing Moon, an earlier game in the same franchise, but The Pandora Directive is proving to be a tough act to follow… erm, precede. Here’s what I thought of it:
The Pandora Directive (1996) – Point-and-click adventure, PC.
