Wow, I am quite surprised. It was so many years ago that I played The Dig. Another real good game back then that sticks out in my mind is Rama.
I have both the Dig and Rama, I'm pretty sure they're both DOS-based games.
I could not get the original version of The Dig to play on my win 98 or win xp. I'm playing the remade version on my XP.
Hat, I realize that you're playing the Dig Remake on XP, so maybe if you'd someday like to have a go with your original version (I believe this is the version I have somewhere in my office) you might want to try playing it in DOSbox?
I'm playing The Book of Unwritten Tales and although I don't normally like games with lots of talking... and this one has a lot... I am enjoying this game... it's cute... the script writing is good.. graphics good... so with computer on my lap... connected to the outlet beside the house on the deck... looking out at the lake... I am having a good time
Wow, Winfrey! You're getting kind of like me - wanting to "game on the go" sort of, even if its just out on your deck. As for me, I like to game on the go at the local coffee shops with my laptops.
Loved Rama too. Taught myself to do all those base 2, 3, etc. math puzzles by hand as I couldn't figure out the scientific calculator on the computer. Don't know if I could do it again!
That's pretty cool, Diat - Could you please teach me how to count using base 2, 3, etc, so I can play my copy of Rama someday?
I'd sure like to learn this kind of math. Perhaps this may help me understand these base 16 numbers (hexadecimal of assembly language) that one of my computer teachers at the community college was trying to explain to me back in '05.
