You should definitely try to finish it, and then another 5 times because there's plenty of ways to end the game :)
It looks terrible by todays standards but the gameplay is still better than most modern games!

I didn't have the game any longer, so I bought a copy on eBay for $4. Now all I need to do is make an XP partition so I can play it :lol:

It doesn't run on Windows 7? I'm quite sure I've played it on 7 at some point.

I just assumed it didn't. Didn't it come out in the year 2000? Weren't we all still on Win98SE at that point? :lol:

I'm an old school point and click adventure gamer. I'm also scoring a retro point and click adventure game called Quest for Infamy. Will be released in a few months on steam, gog and humble. Currently recording voice actors and testing. First real big project I've done and I love it. Notched up around 80 mins of original music too! Www.questforinfamy.com

did you back Tim Schafer/ Double Fine Adventure on Kickstarter? Broken Age is a real masterpiece :)

I didn't back it I'm afraid but I did see it in action. Beautiful graphics and music but the gameplay seemed to leave a lot to be desired, which is a shame.

The last Tim Schafer game I played was Psychonauts which I thought was amazing. Gameplay and graphics weren't top of the line but the story and graphics style are awesome.
