Space Quest IV

Though my favourite games are SimSim and Boom.

The description for Boom and SimSim were hilarious. But I had to put this screenshot, as the previous game was It Came from the Desert. ;)
Your turn, Gilbert!

The old guy reminds me of something.
This is an adventure game?
Can't be Gabriel Knight 2 (unless the image has suffered massive downgrading)
Maybe 7th Guest? (I have played neither, btw)

No, but there are connections with the last two games.

Definitely not the 7th Guest.

I'm going to guess Harvester. I've only played a few minutes of it, but such a scene wouldn't feel out of place.

^It might be that, I mean when I saw the "It Came for Dessert" pic I immediately thought of Harvester (due to the nice cake scene).

It's obvious that the girl which only had her spine remain, died from natural causes: "Son, you can't live without your spinal cord; nothing unnatural about it"  :=

This one is a bit tricky, or, this is not at all tricky.


Like I mentioned, it has connections with the last two games.

Seems I've killed this.
Anyway, take my words in my last post.
This is tricky because I bet most people here haven't even seen this game (and it was my intention in choosing this game).
However, it is also not at all tricky because as mentioned, it was related to the last two entries. In fact, it was extremely heavily related to one of them.

I may post another screenshot later.

Some obscure space quest/fan-made or not?

Some obscure AGS game with "It came from" in the title?  :P

Yeah! You're correct. It's the TG16 version of It came from the desert!

This version is so obscured that I bet nearly no one has seen it.
lt is not at all tricky because it's the exactly same game(or a port, or a remake) in a previous entry, but I think most people will lose it since it was TOO straightforward.

This version of the game changed all the cutscenes into ugly FMVs. At least its framerate was smooth as far as I remember. I've never completed it but I've heard that this version had some serious balancing issues, that some of the action sequences were next to impossible to beat.

Anyway, TheFrighter, you're next.

At least it looks better than that ridiculous old amiga500 western game :D (iirc "The Town with no Name")

Ok and now something very easy, this is probably one of the most brilliant game of the last 15 years:

Well that is Plants Vs Zombies.

And I will agree... It is one of the best games I have ever played.

Argh - I swear I was going to guess that and then thought 'nah, too obvious'.  (laugh)
