A problem with search

I've just noticed (I don't know if this problem has already been talked about) that if I search the database for "A Mind Forever Voyaging", there's no result at all: you must write "Mind Forever Voyaging" without the article to have a result. I guess it's because the title in the database is actuall...

Re: Adventure Challenge

Shogun YEEESSSSS! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: Congratulations, you win! The first picture from the rebus was The Muppet Show . The second picture was a gun. So the rebus was "Show" + "gun" -> "Shogun". A rather forgettable text adventure, even if it was published by Infocom and authored by Dave Lebling...

It's not Animal Land Murder Case. (But it was a good idea! It would have fitted Clue 1 very nicely.)

Re: Adventure Challenge

(A bit of pointless trivia about muppets and text adventures, with nothing to do with the challenge: I read in a blog post that the mainframe version of Stuga had muppets in it.)

Re: Adventure Challenge

And there is another huge muppet fan completely baffled over here :D. Is it Funfear ? No, it's not Funfear. And yes, I know my clue was rather obscure :) . Here's another one: Game #3 Clue 2 The Clue 1 is actually a little rebus: each picture should suggest one (and only one) word, and if you combi...

Re: To our French visitors

Don't worry about me: I'm safe. Actually, I'm francophone but I live in Switzerland (I'm half French, half Swiss), very far from Paris.

But thank you for your message! If there are any other French people on the forum, I certainly hope they're safe, too.

Re: Searching Adventure from the 80's (C64)

I don't think Eureka! came on five or six discs, but if the game was officially translated into German and French the site will need to be updated. There was definitely an official French translation: see, for instance, the World of Spectrum page , which has the Spectrum French version and even the...

There was a German version of Eureka! (and a French one, too).

Re: Walkthroughs for IFComp games?

For recent years at least (I can't find them for older years), there are blurbs at the official IF Comp website. Here are the links; for some of these pages, you need to click on the "Show all" button to see the blurbs. 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 EDIT: the IF Comp website has just been modif...
