:lol: The Softcorn Adventure - Your corn is gone soft, and now you have to find a way to make it stiff again! Why does this sound like a Larry game? ;) I don't think I understand the "Oil's Smell" one, though. Or "Dead Carrion". Softcorn Adventure is a spoof of Softporn Adventure (the text adventur...

Re: The Failed Sierra Adventure Games!

More like their first game. Ever. By Roberta and Ken. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mystery_House Not just their first game, but THE very first graphical adventure ever. It is the game that founded Sierra. A bit surprising that a Sierra fan does not know of it. Like I said, I was too young to play ...

Re: The Failed Sierra Adventure Games!

All right, I never played Mystery House. I was far too young when was released. ;) Gold Crush! Saga . Oh noes! Your gold is trapped in a puzzle game full of earth, sediment, and rocks! You must identify three pieces of earth/rock/etc. that sit next to each other in order to eliminate them from the b...

:lol: SWAT 5. Do you have to swat five flies? ;) Hero's Jest. The hero's application to FACS goes missing in the post. Instead, he is sent to JACS (Joking Assassins' Correspondence School), where he is taught all the classic moves: putting up with a bucket of whitewash in his trousers, taking a pie ...

Re: The Failed Sierra Adventure Games!

:lol: Nero's Quest. ;) Nero also fancied himself as an artist and a poet (but, by all accounts, his poetry stank so much that people injured themselves so they could leave and get medical treatment). :shock: So here's a quest for Nero: write a poem that doesn't suck. :P What's "Mystery Spouse" a par...

Re: A question - and a little fun...

The Lion King is based on Hamlet ... Sure. And Hamlet isn't original, either! Shakespeare's play is based on Gesta Danorum (“Deeds of the Danes”), written by around 1200 AD, in which he chronicled Denmark’s kings and told the story of Amleth – the real-life Hamlet! :D Amleth = Hamlet ... Shakespear...

Re: A question - and a little fun...

Isn't FROZEN considered new? (I've never seen it myself, just know the songs thanks to friends having kids... so I am not sure if it's based on anything else or an original). Frozen isn't entirely original, but that doesn't make it less fun. :) Having said that, "Frozen" is clearly based on the cla...

Re: A question - and a little fun...

Fair enough. :) It's always difficult to engage younger generations, so good on Disney for at least trying. Speaking personally, I'd like to see Disney do something new. But that might be because I've seen Disney do lots of things, so I'm harder to impress. ;) Does that make me a cantankerous old fa...
