    Ah, I lost so much of my youth to Infocom games. I had the originals of so many of them - certainly most of the Zorks and Hitchhiker's - I wonder what happened to them all?

    I remember when Infocom moved to graphical adventures, and so many people didn't like them because the graphics took away the element of imagination: try telling the youths of today that they had to read and imagine things to play a video game :lol:

    I may not be doing any work for the rest of the day as I reminisce while looking through this archive ;) :thumb:

    Still remember the scratch'n'sniff card from Leather Goddesses of Phobos. Simply classic! :)

    I have two boxed copies of that - one for the C64 and one for the Atari ST (which I should probably get shot of, as I don't have an Atari ST any more). The scratch-n-sniff still whiffs!
