Mortville Manor remake

This is a remake of the 1st-person-perspective adventure game from Lankhor (1987/1988).
Mortville Manor is the predecessor of the probably better known Maupiti Island (1990).


In this game you play a private investigator who's on a case in and around Mortville Manor.
You're there to investigate the death Julia Defranck, a childhood friend.


You conduct a detective investigation by wander through the manor, search around for clues and items,
have conversations with family members who live at the manor, and try to solve the case.


Some differences and similarities compared to the original version:
  • dropdown action-menus in top of screen plus questioning system are changed into a modern style point 'n click system.
  • no time limit, so no huries while playing
  • original text-only player inventory accessible via action-menu is now an always visible graphical inventory
  • play the game in Atari-ST, Amiga or DOS (EGA Mode) palette and switch between these 3 anytime during gameplay.
  • player moves via always visible 'where to go' list' instead of via dropdown action-menu on top of screen
  • persons present list is now graphical instead of textual
  • better and much, much more textual responses when clicking on stuff
  • original Amiga sound-fx included
  • while the original had none, this remake features background music for almost every area, all created by Eric Matyas

Lankhor's games were really cool and a great inspiration for me! I played them back when they were first released on 5'25 floppy disks on an Amstrad PC 1512, awesome memories  :-D
