    I remember a few years ago finding a site that was maintained by one person, who had a comprehensive list of all RPGs ever released (for PC specifically I think). I think I found that site through RPGCodex, but can't find it anymore. Does anybody know the site I'm thinking of?

    I'm trying to find an obscure game from the mid-90s, which had you play as an old man in a nightgown, isometric, and there were pots that sometimes caught on fire. Either a puzzle RPG or just a puzzle game. No other information available.

    Yes I think that was the one! Maybe not comprehensive but pretty darn good.

    Thanks, I didn't realize Moby Games had that many games listed.

    Do you remember whether it was a shareware game? Was it Mystic Towers (1994, Apogee)?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mystic_Towers

    It is funny sometimes how hard it is to find information on some of the more obscure games from that period. I have wanted to recall the name of one which was a silhouette platformer-adventure-action-rpg(similar to Limbo but fantasy setting) where you were a sorcerer-warrior character in sort graveyard kind of world, there were seven sorcerers (of different creature types) in towers that you had to visit to learn different spells and so forth and one of them was supposedly a "traitor" (I never found out which one) - I thought it had "black" or "dark" in the title but I have never been able to remember.....

    Mystic Towers. He was named Baldriq or something and it was fun adventure/puzzle game. Like Cadaver, but much easier.
