    Indeed, I'd also give several body parts for a Full Throttle remake.

    That would be beyond great... IF they don't screw it up. 90% of remakes are total trash imho.

    I'm so excited for this. Day of the Tentacle is my favorite point and click adventure of all time. I want everyone to play it. Although, sharing adventure games with people is a bit like trying to share your religion. They just don't get it or want it.

    Agreed, been playing p&c games since Myst in 93 and rarely bother mentioning them to most gamers I know and if I do they often say 'Ugh, you mean like those Big Fish games' No, definitely not like BF games!
    I'm waiting for the new game 'Obduction' which Cyan are now working on which I pledged to on Kickstarter, hopefully it will be released in 2015.

    Never did get around to finishing that game. I had it on the Amiga, but one of the discs was corrupt/damaged. I think there were nine of them.

    Yeah, on PC I think it was 10 disks. I remember I copied it from my friend who lived few miles away from me. I went back home to find out that one of the discs was corrupted. Walked the distance again and made 3 copies of the game to make sure I got it this time!:)

    Oooh Kyrandia! The entire Gobli(i(i))ns series, most of the Sierra On-line back catalogue, Beneath a Steel Sky, Curse of the Temptress, Loom ... so many good games from that era deserves a remake. Just enough of a remake to bring the games and the stories to 2014. Wow, this certainly does bring back memories...

    Edit: While we wait for the remakes however, I found this site which allows you to play your old favorites in their original glory in your browser: http://www.oldgamz.com/game.php?id=2543 Now excuse me while I procrastinate for a few hours...

    The original Beneath a Steel Sky is on GoG for free if you fancy a nostalgia trip.
