Occasionally, when playing computer games, funny things happen. So I
take screenshots of them : ). Sometimes I add captions to the pictures.
Drakan: Order of the Flame
If my computer weren't so slow when this demo came out, I would have bought the game,
because the demo was really cool (despite how buggy it and the final
version of the game was). There are two modes to this game: You play
Rynn, a heroine who puts Lara Croft to shame, and you can run around on
the ground and smack enemies with a huge variety of weapons, and you
have a dragon friend, Arokh, and you can climb on his back and fly
around and fry enemies with his breath-weapons.
Die by the Sword
This game was (and still is) way ahead of its time, and it paid dearly
for it. only about 10 000 people bought the game (very few for what
seemed like a sure-fire hit game). Consequently, there doesn't appear
to be any sequel coming. You play Enric, a sword-wielding warrior whose
girlfriend Maya has been kidnapped, to your knowledge, by some kobolds
(little rat-men). You have to save her (duh). You have COMPLETE control
over his sword because of a special VSIM mode of play. VSIM was some
guy's Ph.D. project. It's so cool. But it takes forever to get used to,
so few people were able to realize the potential of it, so didn't buy
Anyway, here's the only DbtS screen I have
right now. BTW, I won this battle : ) I pushed him in the lava.
Unfortunately, I didn't fare too well the next battle... Well, can you
blame me? I was missing something rather important...
