I loved the artwork, voice overs and overall theme. From a technology standpoint, it was really a stand-out for that time. But felt the puzzles were just way too abstract to keep it interesting and it ended up being one of the few games I never finished.

Puzzles like "go up the stairs, open a box with your scythe, find the little old man and chase him away then go back downstairs, fill one tube with liquid, use the liquid to fill up balloons, put one of the balloons in a message tube..." and on and on. I mean there's no rhyme or reason to any of that, and the game was filled with those types of nonsensical puzzles.

I couldn't agree more: nonsensical puzzles kill adventure games. For some reason, they all (or, more aptly, the ones that I've played) have them in spades :(

Meanwhile, X-Wing and TIE Fighter are rotting away in a dark corner...

Hopefully the original audio files are available. That's just not something you can "upgrade," especially with certain cast members. Double for something like a potential Gabriel Knight remake. Then again, I prefer the first Monkey Island remake by LucasArts as opposed to the high quality one Telltale did a couple years ago.

Hallelujah! I recently just found a custom installer package that lets me play the original on a modern system, but if enough people support this, maybe it will spur other classic adventure game remakes. Maniac Mansion? Quest For Glory? FULL THROTTLE???
