Dear god...
I remember that floor.
I remember that girl.
I remember the fist fight with that asshole.
But I don't remember the game.

I recognise the characters too - and the painting oddly enough - but no idea of the game.  Can't even be completely sure if that's an 8-bit or 16-bit system. :-[

What about choosing some not so obscure games so I can have some fun too? :-D

It has a strong QBasic vibe, but I have no clue what this might be.

Alright, apparently nobody played this but me. Here's some hints, first one to Google the answer can take the next turn:
Spoiler: ShowHide
It's a DOS game from 1992.

Spoiler: ShowHide
The goal of the game is shown in one of the screenshots I posted.

Spoiler: ShowHide
The game had a parser interface and no mouse support.

Spoiler: ShowHide
It was made in a 'game-making' program (way before AGS existed).

Spoiler: ShowHide
Although it was a complete game in itself, it was released as shareware as a kind of demo for a planned sequel.

Spoiler: ShowHide
I don't think the sequel was ever made.

Spoiler: ShowHide
I played it as a kid in the mid 90s, but it's probably pretty obscure. There's at least one Youtube longplay though.

Mel Odius goes 'Six String Searchin' is correct!

Sorry for the tough one, I knew it was obscure but I was hoping someone would have come across it.
