Jumpman wasn't really close, just that we also use sound effects from it.

And NecroVale, whatever it is, I know for certain that it is not a big truck.

... in England.

I'm constantly amazed at the huge variety of C64 games that were made. It seems like there was much more variety back than, in spite of (or maybe because of) the extreme limitations of the system.

Producing games was also much cheaper then. It's easier to take risks if you don't have to pour millions of dollars into a project.

Which is why there are no adventure games any longer, and first-person shooters have dominated the market.

Rest in peace, Sierra.

This is a perennial problem for artists of all kinds: do they strive for growth and conduct experiments, or do they repeat the tried-and-true that they know people will respond well to? Victims of success end up being suffocated by their own past work.

I'm going to take the time to recommend an adventure game, currently available, that I thought was excellent: Voyage. It's roughly inspired by Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon.

Side note: avoid playing Nibiru at all costs.

With Lord Crusher as your name, it had damn well better be! If not, the Chris I knew in school is gonna throw you a beating for stealing his name.

Imposters of Chris, ye be warned...

WOW.

Good job, dude.
Yes indeed, the LRR theme is the bridge from "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" from the title screen of The Sporting News Baseball. Who would have thought?

How did you figure it out?
