Re: Board Upgrade

Acid Tech is perfect for me. Loved the Halloween! At first I wasn't so sure about the flying bats and ghosts, but they stopped after about 30 seconds. It would be so cool to deck the place out again!

Oh, and Latte worked after clearing my Edge browser cache.

Re: Board Upgrade

Latte does not seem to work either. I get a bunch of little menus when I try that one. I will look at the link. I prefer the darker boards to save my eyes. Perhaps it's my monitor, but the darker themes work better for me. I like Acid Tech and Quantum Codex a lot. I got all excited when I looked at ...

Yes, that's the one, Winfrey.

Re: Board Upgrade

Me too. There is an option over to the right to change the style. But I tried another one and it was totally messed up! Didn't think I was ever going to get out of it!

Re: Board Upgrade

I know. Ghostlady was going to force it, but I told her I'd prefer to put up with the drop-down menus that won't go away rather than use Prosilver! Are you also having the issue?

Re: Board Upgrade

Ghostlady is in the midst of doing another Board upgrade in case you notice any issues. One so far is that none of the Board Styles - with the exception of Prosilver - work well with the new Board upgrades. She will be working on getting some new templates uploaded as soon as she can. In the meantim...

Maybe it's not a creepy house, but it IS a creepy museum! Flotsam over at GB just gave a "first look" review of Song of Horror and this one looks pretty scary! To be released October 31st.

Re: Recommendations

Tormentum was definitely a creepy one... I think there was even a sequel! I've heard good things ab out Gorogoa from others too.

Re: Recommendations

The second Barrow Hill was even worse about going round and round. But it was mostly because of the horrid point and click interface. I've learned to hate it after getting used to being free to go where I want in the newer games! I really did love Draugen and will look forward to more or Edward and ...

Re: Recommendations

The Barrow Hill games are a good creepy choice - especially if you like the ancient Cornwall type of scariness! Games that are that old are always going to be cheaper! I don't mind paying $20 for a new game, but I sure want to have more than 2 - 3 hours of gameplay!

Re: Recommendations

Well, I am NOT going to recommend Draugen! But not because I didn't love the game - I did. But $20 for maybe 2 - 3 hours of gameplay? And no solving of the mystery in the mine? No pulling together the Draugen Norwegian mythology with the storyline? No resolution of the dead bodies? The one mystery s...

Re: Recommendations

Val, if you liked Draugen, you will also probably like Through the Woods which is classified as Horror Adventure. It's also set in Norway and features a mother searching for her son in the Norwegian forests. Liked this one so much I played it twice in a row! More beautiful graphics and a great story...
