    I gave the demo of that Crimson Diamond thingy a very short spin, looks p. cool. Also, watching the intro I thought, "this better be WIP because EGA graphics does not mean prosper graphics," and then near the end one of the characters says, "This is what the game graphics are ACTUALLY gonna look like." :lol:

    Parser games can be a problem if you are lazy like me and don't like having to type stuff in a lot. still looking forward to it though

    Oh shit, how did I miss this? Colonel’s Bequest is one of my all-time faves. This looks like it could be a decent homage. Not sure about setting the game in daylight though, a big part of Laura Bow 1’s atmosphere comes from the oppressive dark night.

    Looks cool I appreciate that it's an authentic 16 color pallette. Has a charm to it that the HD-ified retro stuff a lot of other indies go for doesn't. Hope there's more too it than nostalgia worship, though. By that I just mean that I hope the murder mystery part of the game is actually well done.
