Talk about a high profile project - a Discworld computer game. Such cult favourites always run the risk of offending the very dedicated fan base, especially since presumably the computer games market overlaps very much with the group of those fans. First impression: They did very well. The graphics look very Josh-Kirby-ish and the CD version features professional actors as the voices of the characters - with Eric Idle in the lead as the wizard Rincewind.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

Oof, one of those games I wanted to love a lot… yet it always let me down. Set in one of my most favourite fantasy worlds? Check! Featuring one of my most favourite characters as protagonist? Check! Being all about great adventures and dragons? Check!

Yet all I remember right now about it are drawn out dialogues which might be fun to read but are dull to listen too, a semi-good German localisation (with lots of translation errors) and puzzles which became the epitome of "moon logic" to me. Oh and to top it off: Never close any of the location, but introduce new elements to each of them on regular basis, so you always have to search them all over again. Hooray!

Only saving grave to me: "Stimmt's Lachi?!" and "Nix mehr Lachi!" is still a running gag in my family. :P
Dear Sir, I object strongly with the last thread, and the next post.
