A new adventure from Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert

Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert will produce a new point-and-click adventure!! :D They asked for 400.000 $ and within hours they have enough money to produce a new game. Right now they have almost 1.000.000 $ :shock: I love the internet - Who needs publisher? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/66710809...

Re: Introduce yourself

Oh, I didn´t introduce myself. Sorry!

I´m a 31 year old gamer from Germany. I have a very busy RL (job, 2 sons, PhD thesis to finish) and a giant backlog of games.
Got my first Computer (C64) with 7 years. I also collect comics since more than 13 years.

Re:

C64, Christmas Day 1987. I played Wizard of Wor every spare moment I had. Exactly the same! But for me it was Christmas 1985 and I was seven years old. It came with a tape from my uncle with dozens of games on it and two joysticks. I played with my brother Wizard of Wor all the time! It was brillia...

Re: AD&D Games for the Amiga/PC

Eye of the Beholder 1 and 2 are definitely worth a try. They are both great dungeon crawler! I can´t say anything about the rest of AD&D games, because I´ve never played them.
