I also think it looks Sierra-esque. One of the Leisure Suit Larrys?

LBA2?
The gourand shaded ball head on the bottom left seems suspicious.

LBA2
I just adore the aesthetics of Little Big Adventure 2. Something about the engine and how it pre-renders the background whenever the camera moves, is just beautiful to me.

Indeed, it's LBA2. :D And yes, I fell in love with the game the moment I played the demo version from one of my countless shareware CDs...
Your turn Gilbert!

Never played it, but I LOVED Little Big Adventure. How did LBA2 compare on story?

Hey, I played a demo of it on a shareware CD too!
It wasn't until many MANY years later, when I finally got to play the full version. I never saw it in shops you see. (Probably because by the time I got that shareware CD, the game was way too old.)

I still have that shareware CD too. It also had a demo of Dungeon Keeper on it, and cultivated my love of that game as well. Thankfully I managed to find Dungeon Keeper in a shop.
Ah good times.  :-D

LBA2 was great!
While the 3-D backgrounds didn't look as good as those composed of pre-rendered components like its precursor it was way ahead of its time.
It had all the benefits of the fixed dramatic cameras(such as AitD and BioHazard) but still flexible enough without making it real-time 3-D.
It's also a much longer game and contained a larger variety of stuff too, and the controls were a bit improved.
Will find another screenshot soon.
Next:

Could be easy.

I seriously miss these kind of CDs. That particular one with LBA2 demo was legendary for me, as it featured a ton of other amazing games, including a demo of MDK, CoMI, Adventures of Lomax and many, many more great games.

It's also a much longer game and contained a larger variety of stuff too, and the controls were a bit improved.

My only complaint regarding LBA2 was
Spoiler: ShowHide
the jumping mechanics, they didn't work very well with the rotational/tank controls, especially considering Twinsen's amazing swimming abilities. Also I was rather sad when I found out you couldn't visit most of the Twinsun's islands from LBA1! But on the other hand we did get 2 entirely new planets (or rather a planet and a moon), so I guess it's a fair deal. :D

It's been a long time, but as far as I remember, changing action mode in LBA2 was much faster than in the first game. That's one of the improvements on control that I can remember.

Yup, not only it was quicker, LBA2 also had shortcuts to quickly change the behaviour - they really helped, especially during the platforming/combat parts!

Alright, let's keep the ball rolling:
