Laura Bow - Mystery Screen Shot Game!

Feeling like this game could be murder... literally? Well, come on in here for some extra detective work (and clues/hints/etc!) for the Laura Bow games (The Colonel's Bequest and The Dagger of Amon Ra).

I think enough people have played (at least the first one?) this game several times; thought I'd start up a screen shot guessing game...

It makes for a nice easter egg reference, but it doesn't work for me in terms of narrative or gameplay. But then, the same goes for so much of the game.

I take the lack of any guesses or hint requests as an indication of a lack of interest in this version of the game, but nevertheless, here's another snippet from the same screenshot:

Those are from the same screen? :lol:

By the looks of it, it's LB2... I can't place where at the moment...

Hey, that is for sure the Leyendecker Museum if I ever saw it; the first one was really nasty, those must either be the clouds in the nightsky above it or fog on the asphalt.

I could punch myself for not realizing those were clouds. I was totally thinking it was smoke. And I was trying to think where there was smoke in LB2.

LB2. Is it the room with the various suits of armor?

Indeed, the tapestry / armoury room!

Ugh! Took me forever back in the day to discover you could hide behind the tapestries to spy on the meetings there.
Eventually, I remember time passing without that kind of eavesdropping, but replay upon replay I walked around frustrated, forever waiting for it to happen...
