Oh, I did think of the other option that it might be from a game, but it looked a lot like your art-style to me at least...

Yeah, I have never played a Space Quest game except for the remakes that were made here in AGS... Same goes for King's Quest... And these remakes fixed the most glaring gameplay issues...

Not really a fan of the Sierra adventure games to be honest. My opinion comes from watching Let's Plays of course but I wouldn't want to play a game that allows for dead-man-walking endless gameplay until you figure out/suspect that you've already lost the game. I can understand why they did it at the time, otherwise the games would only have had about 90 minutes of actual length. Limitations of the memory size and all. So having to start over again and figure out what you had missed doing was a puzzle in itself. But, for me, no thanks...

Hmmmm, I'm a bit skeptical that the verb "shave" can be used on it's own to describe the act of shaving someone else.

Test Case:

"Hello, may I speak to the barber?"
"I'm sorry, he can't come to the phone right now."
"Why not?"
"He's shaving."

I'm pretty sure that that last sentence's correct form is "He's shaving a customer." otherwise it means "He's shaving himself." by default.

Riddles can cheat a little with language and get away with it though so: Nice one!!!

A man shaves several times a day, yet he still has a beard. Who is he?


Pillars is BACK in production after a considerable hiatus.

Great news! Best of luck!

Amazing picture there, mate! Did you make it just for this contest or is it from your game?

even if I never came close to 1000 rats.

Shadow1000 said the same kind of thing about the 1000 rats goal and I meant to mention something then but forgot:

The goal of 1000 might seem too tedious to try for when you are only gaining like 10 rats per breeding and then losing 3 or so to traps etc. but the gains increase exponentially so, roughly, it takes about as long to get from 100 to 500 as it took to get to 100 and then only about half that to get to 1000. So, by the time you get 500 you'll be gaining well over 100 rats per breeding. I think I jumped from 800 odd to over 1000 in my last breeding and won the game.

My own game is a bit similar in that it's easy to die early on but then, as you get stronger, you'll find youself one-hitting most enemies and the XP flowing in at a huge rate. Of course, in my game this is countered a bit by the exponential growth of skill costs but once you get to the point where a skill becomes impossibly expensive to afford the next level you probably don't need it any higher.

Just a few points for people giving up early on. ;)

Ouch, I take back my previous post.

It's entertaining, though I think the potty humor towards the end would be more fun for a younger audience than me.
You'r showing your age...I'm much older than you and it had me in fits (laugh)

Even Shakespeare never forgot to include some low-brow humour in every play to remind the audience to have a laugh at itself while along for the ride.

It can be overdone, but that's really just a matter of preference.

I had just had my hair cut about 30 minutes before I set that riddle.

I was actually going to ask if you had thought of that one

At first I thought it was something to do with Aladdin. (laugh)

Here’s one.

If you have me, you have less. But you look better. What am I?

Hmm.  Looks like some shareware Lemmings'inspired game but... no idea what it's called.

Looking back and forth from his avatar image to the screenshot I cannot help but deduce that they are all a bunch of little Guroks!!!

Dragon's Lair?

Not cropped quite enough though it seems...

I didn't see the sword icon in the bottom right until I posted it full-size. Did that give it away?

Over to you!

I did think that was a weird entry, more like we were trying to work out the letters rather than actually recognising the image.

Wasn't that kind of a fun challenge for a change though?

Heh-heh, I'm surprised nobody mentioned the time I put up a screenie of Polybius, a game that has probably never existed, well the original at least.

Anyway, here's a cropped one:

And I should have known that someone else living in Japan would get it. I don't see anything close to the level of ridiculous behavior that they cause here happening when I go back to Australia.

You certainly are sir-milk-a-muggling this joke for all it's worth (laugh)(laugh)(laugh)

I can show you the world,
And yet hide it from you.
I can preserve a beautiful sunset forever,
So that you won't have to watch it.
I can give you contact with everyone you know,
But you'll rarely notice a new person again.
I can make waiting hours for a taxi not matter,
Because you're already home if you have me.

What am I?

Seriously though, I would play a mash-up game called:

What Lies Beneath A Steel Sky

Reminds me of a great mash-up movie title I saw in MAD magazine as a kid:

"Trading Places In The Heart" with Eddie Murphy playing Sally Field's role (laugh)
