Since I have recognized precious few of these, I thank you for the easy one, and for the party snacks. Here's mine:



If you don't recognize it, consider yourself lucky. It was one I really regretted buying.

@Gribbler - It had a great trailer. That's why I bought it. The game wasn't nearly as good.

@Kconan - Nope.

Edit: Possible hint - A Windows 3.x game.

Jaffles is correct.

I found a link to the trailer that lured me in.

Watching the trailer makes me wonder why it appealed to me so much back in the day. Gribbler's adjective seems to sum up both the game and the trailer.

Maybe you read the Entertainment Weekly review.  That is one train wreck of a GUI and it looks like a kid drew the horned, orange stick figure.

@monkey424 sorry, no dice

It's tough to find screenshots w/o the hud (which totally gives it away).

Here's a hint: This game was marketed primarily to girls (not really sure why)

One of the Nancy Drew games?  Curse of Blackmoor Manor?  (That's the only ND game I've actually played... not sure if that screen looks familiar or not.)
