Post Escape From the Labyrinth
Do you remember the days when you could play a computer game which made you think ? when playing a game was more than just thumb candy ?

Do you like Science Fiction, or evocative music, or perhaps even early 20th Century abstract art.


Then please take a look at our game K'NOSSOS we are running a KickStarter campaign and only have a few days left to reach our funding target.

apologies if you think this is spamming, I got the the OK first from Chris before posting.

Well at least we got that bit right ;)

The game unashamedly has a number of attributes from the 1990's, in respect of game-play and 2 presentation, backed up with strong narrative content. But we haven't gone the whole hog with pixel graphics and 8 bit music. It all in in highdef graphics with 24 bit sound with a high sampling rate for aural fidelity.

I like the sound of it. Reminds me of a couple of old games whose name I have forgotten.
When I play a computer game I don't wish to be made to feel like a failure. I want to feel like the king of the universe. If it's too hard, I'll give up.
Entertain me, wow me out, just don't challenge me.

Dark Souls sounds right up your alley....
The fact that I had to replace an Xbox controller right after 'dropping it' during that game is purely coincidental...

I've remembered what those games were called. Elite and Captain Blood. Elite was way back when, on the first computer I ever saw. Think Captain Blood was on the Speccy, which rendered it pretty shit, but the story was good.

Did you never play games written with ' the Quill' ? The Hobbit and Valhalla come to mind now.
Text only with still frames.

It was so absorbing that missed work a couple of times 'cos I was up all night playing. How things change :D

The Hobbit certainly rings a bell.
Think my favourite game ever is Hogs of War on the PS1. You had an army of pigs and had to blow up the enemy with various weapons. You could choose to play as Britain, Germany, France, Russia or the USA, and Rik Mayall did the voices.

That sounds well infront of the ones I was thinking of. I mean games that ran on a zx80. No colour or sound :clown:

The jump to Spectrum and things like Duke Nukem or Manic Miner was immense.
