    Hi!

    Memories are a little blurry, but here are some things I remember:

    Was a little like Dink Smallwood. Action RPG with one character (at least one in the beginning).

    It started out in a city with lions. Living lions, lion statues etc.

    One of the first things outside was a desert. It was possible to light fires to scare enemies away (scorpions). It was possible to sleep too. Sometimes a Donkey showed up and started talking. It was possible to answer via a 1/2/3/4 etc options menu. Like Fallout.

    Got it via a demo CD somewhere around the late nineties, and I believe that the perspective of the camera was a little like this: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dink_Smallwood_hellfire.jpg

    Have been looking for this a very long time but never found it. If someone could help me out, I'd be very grateful!

    Also, does anyone know about a ps1-rpg that takes place in sewers etc, I believe in modern time? A mix of horror and rpg. Not parasite eve, vagrant story or silent hill (not even a rpg!:))

    Best wishes!

    Enemy Mine?

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Oh, and your link is crap.

    As for the RPG, Koudelka? Or Shadow Hearts, though that's for ps2.

    For some reason I want to say Silver. Never played it, but always wanted to. Don't know how much of a true rpg it was though.

    No idea about the PS1 game though.

    Wonderful! It was Quest for Glory 3. Recognized it as soon as I saw it. After all these years I'll finally get to play it again! Thanks!:D

    The rpg was not the one, but nvm, I don't even know if it exists. A friend told me about it way back. Most important thing is that Quest for Glory 3 is found!

    Triggerhappytel: Silver was an awesome game. Search youtube for the soundtrack - it's still good!

    Get all five games for pennies from GOG. They're all excellent, with arguably part 2 being the best. It hasn't, as far as I know, been remade in VGA, though, so it still comes with EGA graphics and the older Sierra interface (typing commands to interact with stuff, gasp). QfG1 is remade in VGA and highly playable.

    By the way, there is a QfG2 remake and it is glorious. Highly recommended. :-)
