    Who remembers this game?

    I was typing up a report before lunch when a memory of this game popped into my head. It took me up until now to remember what it was called :p

    I miss 2D adventure games....

    Game rules. BS2 was pretty good as well. Shame about 3 onwards.

    But yeah, Shadow of the Templars is still an awesome game and I shall be getting my mother to mail it to me tomorrow thank you for reminding me.

    My loft is a bit like an adventure game actually. :D

    Broken Sword games were great :)
    Runaway was good too.

    Although not exactly the same, Grim Fandango was great too (was in 3D if I recall)

    excellent series of games bar the later 3d incarnations. Grim Fandango was awesome as well. I really dont fully understand why this genre died out? perhaps with have console gamers to blame for developers not making titles like this anymore?
