And I doubt Sierra went bankrupt. I even have my old Sierra-Half-Life-Boxes here. They had a lot of games that sold well. They even sold more adventure games than Lucas Arts. (I guess that's one of the reasons LA has turned their back on adventures and started to make well-selling Star Wars games)
Im from the era where adventure games where the ones ruling pc gaming, that is until Civilization, Warcraft games became popular. So i know how legendary they where. But i always never took orliked the idea of playing their games because i would get stuck or die for stupid reasons.
In this game the damn wizard keeps spawning asking for stuff i dont know how to really do it. Nevertheless i do recognize their games went toe to toe against Monkey Island, Loom, DOTT heydays.
