I stopped reviewing for one publisher who had games there when they suggested I could copy-paste text they sent me if I didn't have time to do my own review...  >:(

Hahaha, yeah, it seems some game publishers view reviewers as a source of free advertising and, as long as they send them a free review copy, that the reviewer has an obligation to write a good review.
Recently, on The Escapist game site and Youtube channel (the current home of Yahtzee) they had an issue with Sony. Sony used to send them free review copies without them even requesting them but then, after a less than glowing review, emailed them saying "We do not like the tone of your latest review so we will not be giving you access to free review copies of our products in the future."
An email which The Escapist had the journalistic integrity to immediately expose.

Close enough.
The game's name is actually Be Richest.
Your turn.  :-D

Something about the interface reminds me of Dragonsphere so I'm wondering if Microprose made any more graphic adventures, but I still have no idea what game this is, sorry can't even guess!  :(

They did...but this definitely isn't Rex Nebular, which is the one I can think of at the moment.

I haven't played this game, as I can't recognize these locations, but I _may_ have played a demo of it or seen a rolling demo of some sort if it was on a coverdisk/disc back in the days.  ???

Ah... looking this up and seeing if they in fact did make another has led me to the answer, I think.

Is it

Return of the Phantom
?

You are correct.   :smiley:

The game is rather easy, but I still love it anyway. 

Your turn.

I feel that I slightly cheated to find the answer, but I suppose some UI recognition and detective work was involved...

Okay next screen from a game I enjoyed quite a bit, hope it hasn't been featured before:

Looks a little too polished, but is it Alone in the Dark 3?

Nope, not that one I'm afraid.

Is it a Sherlock Holmes game?

No - but a famous detective is involved. (His name is not in the title of this game however.)
