Adventure game quiz
« on: November 05, 2003, 04:29:59 PM »

Okay, here's a question....There's a monster/creature running amok in a submarine somewhere in the frozen waters of the Antarctic. What's that adventure game called?  First one to answer gets 35 AG Points.

Yep!!  You got it!  I played the game and it was not too "shabby".  A tamed-down version of John Carpenter's "The Thing" if I remember.  A little bit of suspense and fear without the graphic gore or extreme violence.  
25 AG points awarded!

Sorry, you actually only get 25 points because of the international exchange and conversion rates of AG points and subtraction of tax and shipping fees.  Good job though.

Darn! I hear this all the time! ;)


Ok, let's go on. The rules: someone puts an adventure game related question. The one who guesses right gets a point and asks another question, ok? Hints allowed.


Ok, my turn: It's a game, although it's questionable whether it's a pure adventure game. The main hero is a young CIA operative.

I also think that the author of the question should reveal the answer after 24 hours if nobody answers it and get the points for making a hard question :). And ofcourse earn the chance to ask another question.

How young? I am thinking of "Teen Agent" but I can't be sure. How many answers can I give?

Hm, right. But maybe it should take more than 24 hours, considering all that timezone stuff... :)

Nope, not THAT young. This game is very serious, trying to be realistic. Plus, you're ignoring my hint "it's questionable whether it's a pure adventure game". Teen Agent sure is ;)

CSI maybe? Guess not... but anyway, I have to try. Or hm... I was going to say Hopkins FBI but that's pure adventure, FBI and not CIA, and the main character is not exactly young LOL

No, I didn't play CSI but I doubt it involved CIA.

Ok, a hint: It's a rather old game, it was published in 1996 by Activision.

Yes, it's Spycraft: The Great Game. And the game is really great, highly recommended.
Did you know it or did you google it? ;) Ok, your turn, odnorf.

Hehe... I knew the game but I have never actually played it. And to be sure I checked around the internet a little :) Oh... and it doesn't look like an adventure, rather an interactive movie.

OK... my turn. It's a game. It was a knew genre when it was published, but imo it is 90% an adventure game. The main town's name is the name of a famous director. I want the name of the game AND the director. (This should be very easy I think... I keep the hard questions for the next days :))

Ok...ok... maybe it is not as easy as I thought in the begining. ;) So, here is a few more hints: This game has two names because the company that developed AND published it had problems with licences (the old name belong to another company). But the two versions are indeed different because they recreated the graphics.
