It's one of the greatest adventures I've ever played. Very nice plot, bit similar to Philip K. *putz* books, great graphics and music. It's must, especilly for science fiction fans!

I could not agree more.

This game actually accompanied one of the 486's I bought way back, and it has always been one of my favourite games.

Unfortunately I lost the CD :)

Very cool game from what I've seen, still have to get around to downloading it though, cd talkie version they have.

Oh and good way to run this game is to use scummvm, really helps with running this game. www.scummvm.org

I'm not sure but i think that graphics were made by Dave Gibbons. That guy drew "The watchmen ", an amazing comic book. This game rocks. :)
There is also an easter egg in Broken sword 2 to Beneath a steel sky.

That is correct. Dave Gibbons was the man behind the comic and the graphic in the game. :)

Excellent. This is the best Adventure game I've ever played. This ranks among one of the best games overall I've ever played.

This is great. I've played it so many times and still have problems with some of the puzzles. Plot, gameplay, graphics, sound - everything is damn good!

I thought so too.;) Although I have to admit I discovered it very late - for some reason I didn't notice it at all when it originally came out.
The puzzles aren't particularly difficult compared to other games made around the same time, I suppose, but I liked how the story was clearly the most important aspect of the game and everything else - graphics, music, characters, dialogue etc. - were made to fit round it.

It's one of my favourites too. I think I've bought it 2 or 3 times over the years. Get the talkie version, though.
Furthermore, it is my opinion that Carthage must be destroyed.

Why so often? Did you keep losing them?;)

Well, yeah. That or disks were corrupted. Also, I remember that the last time I bought it, it was just the cd and it was used (but it was cheap ;)). I think I still have that cd around somewhere.
