Still not enough adventure gaming goodness, or really psyched about the Blackwell games to play yourself? Then GOG‘s Timeless Adventures Weekend Promo sale might be the best way to experience some true classics of the genre.
Even though one could argue that most of these games aren’t up to modern standards in graphics, the nostalgic factor plays a big role here, and often these still play rather excellent today, like the Simon the Sorcerer games (except maybe the 3D one, but even this had some really great humour). I played almost all of these at certain points in my life, and they’re without a doubt a lot of fun if you like the genre. And if you want to try out some of these, especially Telltale Games’ Sam & Max, Tales of Monkey Island, the Tex Murphy series or even recent examples like A Golden Wake, then there’s no better or cheaper way to get them than with GOG’s Timeless Adventures.
