While we’ve been working on our cross-platform strategy for The Precinct, I’ve been directed to some fantastic online games from which we’re taking inspiration. Here they are:
Windosill is incredible. You must play it, and you must pay $3 for the full version. It has so much style and personality. It’s as close to a religious experience as you’ll have playing a game.
Brilliant, and pixelated.
Oh, man. These geniuses have put Sierra games like Leisure Suit Larry and King’s Quest online as multiplayer games/chat rooms. So weird, so great.
And some more old games which you can now play online:
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/hitchhikers/game_andrew.shtml
Alter Ego: http://www.playalterego.com/
Legend of the Red Dragon (well, it was always online, but via BBS systems. Now you can play it on the web): http://lord.nuklear.org/
Jones in the Fast Lane: http://home.broadpark.no/~kboye/jones/jones.html
Got any more suggestions?
