Thanks, Mr. Bill. Now I want to get the game.
I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.
It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance? :shock:

Hi guys,

Thanks Mr Bill, nice review LadyK. The Messenger was the first adventure game that I bought and like it a lot, it's among the ones that I will played again one day.

Guys, I have XP. I just checked on Amazon and this game plays up to WIN 98. Do you think it'll play on XP if I set the compatibility to '98?

Melia, I just checked and it works fine on XP. I played through the opening movie and clicked about on the bottom floor of the museum. My computer is just a P3 933 mhz with a GeForce 440. I do have a gig of ram though. The install took about two minutes.

Thanks, DB. I had a good time playing it. It was one of many Mac titles that Dreamcatcher had available once upon a time.

Woo hoo! Thanks, Hawka! I've been wondering what to play ever since I finished Dreamfall. I've been sitting in limbo, here.

Edit: I was wrong about Amazon having it. Looks like they have some books and other stuff, but not the game. :wah:

Good LadyK - glad to see you're keeping busy!

This is one of the few games I've replayed, the ambience just worked for me.

CD Access has it for $14.95. I've used them many times before and have always been pleased with their service. I don't know if they ship internationally, however, Val.
