After not having played UAKM for some years, and probably on an older computer, I decided to install the GOG version yesterday. The game works perfectly, but when exiting the game, all I get is a black screen and I have to reboot the computer to get back to the normal desktop. Has any one out there ...

Tex Murphy fans may enjoy this unusual hidden object adventure game called Adam Wolfe, a noir detective mystery set in a futuristic San Francisco. I've just played the first episode and I was blown away and totally hooked. Don't expect really hard puzzles, but expect wonderful graphics and a terrifi...

When you first launch JULIA, before you select the HD version you prefer. JULIA Untold is down the bottom next to hints.

For a game developed on a very low budget by only two guys, JULIA is remarkably good even if old fashioned. I don't mind 2D old style games as long as they have a good story. If you purchased the GOG game there is a bonus game, JULIA Untold, which consists entirely of building circuits from blueprin...

Chandler, like you I'm not that fond of action games. I prefer a relaxing thoughtful kind of game where you can cruise around and explore the environment and solve puzzles. I've recently played two rather appealing games - JULIA Among the Stars and Goetia, which both had challenging and unusual puzz...

Thanks for recommending this game. I've just started playing it and think it's the most interesting game I've played in a long time -since Tesla Effect that is. It certainly sucks you in and the graphics and game play are very well done.

I still have the GOG Overseer CD version on my computer. I can upload it to dropbox or somewhere else you suggest, or alternately burn it to a dvd and send it to you. It's about 2gb. Send me a PM if you're interested.

[quote="silvermitt"]Australian horse-racing? See, I never would have put those two words together, from a Midwestern American point of view. Au contraire Silvermitt. Australia has a proud history of horse racing and many of your own country men and women find Aussie horse racing more exciting than t...

I tend to visit literary sites most regularly and follow several odd blogs. One of my favourites is an Astrology blog written by a very cool and sassy Aussie Astrologer. http://mysticmedusa.com/ . The comments on her posts are worth reading as well. I have many interests and one of my life's obsessi...
