Two days ago I became the father of a lovely little boy. This means less time for other activities, and I'll probably take a longer time replying to mails and such - at least for a while :)(if anyone's interested, here's what little Arthur looks like - pic 1, pic 2) Contributors: Alastair, dave, terri

Today I'll start with a bit of sad news. As regular visitors will know, I'm a huge fan of Keith Campbell, His columns in C&VG was a major source of inspiration for me and for many other European adventure gamers. Well, as it turns out, Keith passed away two years ago. At the time I was playtesting a new game of his, and all of a sudden, all communication from him ceased. I just learned of his death because I was contacted by Simon Marsh, one of Keith's fellow writers from C&VG. Simon has written a brief tribute to the finest adventure game journalist of the 80's. As for the bread and butter of this site (that would be the solutions and maps), it's been really, really quiet lately. I'm working on a number of maps etc. myself, but in the meantime, here are the latest additions from Terri Sheehan, Alastair and David Lodge.

Hello, my patient visitors and users. It's been a while, but I've tried to ransack my mail log a bit better this time to ensure that as many of your entries are present in the archive this time around (I even found some old maps of my own - it's nice to add something myself to the archive once in a while! Particularly when it's stuff like Dungeon Adventure, which took ages). In other news... I've added a link to Three Days in Carpathia, the unreleased sequel to Valkyrie 17. You can find screenshots and an unplayable demo there. The page is part of Frank Gasking's intriguing Games That Weren't site for the C64. Simon Allan has sent me his latest reworking of one of his original Spectrum games. Moonscape finds you on a failing Moon base, trying to escape to Earth before it's too late. Sci fi buffs should enjoy this. Grab the game here. A couple of titles that have been on the requests list forever have been removed. So for anyone stuck in Caves of Olympus and Price of Peril, now's your chance! Finally, a couple of warm recommendations for people enjoying modern IF. The ever helpful Fredrik Ramsberg has pointed me in the direction of ifreviews.org, which is an excellent resource if you feel like grabbing a piece of IF for the weekend and don't really feel up to the daunting task of choosing between the five thousand (give or take) titles released during the last month. Even more helpful is the Interactive Fiction DataBase (the IFDB, whose name is braving the inevitable onslaught of IMDB lawyers?), which makes selecting and downloading modern IF a breeze. Definitely worth checking out. Let me know if anyone finds any overlooked gems out there.

Hello everybody, and welcome to 2008! Today's update features a number of very diverse games, including Passengers On the Wind, which a friend of mine requested a long time ago. I've tried the game with walkthrough in hand, and even then the game failed to make much sense. The comic books are nice, though. A particular thank you to Terri this time around, as she has sent a large number of contributions. Contributors: iamaran, Pti.Jedi, Gunness, Marco, Juan, Amby, Doreen B, terri

Random Game

Antagonists, The

The dinosaurs ruled the earth in their day. Then came the mammals, culminating in Man. Finally, the insects inherited the earth, led by the ants. Only Albert Renshaw survived to witness the new world. Living in constant fear of discovery, he determined to find a way of escape, preferring the dangers of the unknown to life in hiding and misery. But how? It is for you to find out.

Helping you in your bid for freedom is the diary left by Albert Renshaw, his only companion in the final days. You are also fortunate enough to possess other bits and pieces of information that he collected and thought essential in his attempt at escape. These include detailed drawings and a modern fairytale. A copy of the Book of Flowers has been preserved along with a brochure for the fun-park INSECTOLAND and there are articles on the life of the mysterious Tenins and Lepries and on the life of the ants.

Can you escape the world of The Antagonists?

Notes

A type-in game from the book of the same name.
Re-released in Dutch as De Antagonisten.
