We're almost... THERE!
ATLAS MOUNTAINS said:The Atlas Mountains are a mountain range across a northern stretch of Africa extending about 2,500 km (1,500 miles) through Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia.
What's really interesting is that the mountains were home to a number of plant and animal species unique in Africa, often more like those of Europe. I wonder why that is ? Also, what about the name ? Plato said that Atlantis and the Atlantic Ocean were named after Atlas, the eldest son of Poseidon, the founder of the kingdom. So, how come come these mountains have this name ?
Did the Atlanteans come to these mountains to form an outpost ? Maybe because they are rich in natural resources ? Because in the Atlas mountains you can find deposits of iron ore, lead ore, copper, silver, mercury, rock salt, phosphate, marble, anthracite coal, and natural gas, among other resources.
Maybe someone was looking for Orichalcum.

Puzzles broke that game for me, too. They took all the enjoyment out of the game, and I've played quite my share of difficult adventure games in my time (The Dig and one about Sherlock Holmes, among others).spekkio said:I didn't like puzzles even in such classic as Grim Fandango.
EDUCATION FOR THE IGNORANT POPAMOLERS said:Here we are in the ceremonial and political center of the Minoan civilization, that flourished in the Island Of Crete during the Bronze age, for about 15 centuries. It's considered to be the first advanced civilization in Europe.
Its demise is believed to have come from a massive tsunami, generated by a volcanic eruption from the island of Thera, that devastated the coastal areas of Crete. Not unlike the Atlantis legends we've heard, eh ?
