Life has a way of finding you, no matter how artistic a sneak you are.---Keeper proverb---Thief: The Dark Project.

Well, we all know (perhaps?) there was a graphics/text game on the PC called "The Scoop". Now there's a new PC Game coming out soon: Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None The Adventure Company 09/01/05 North America I can't believe it!! I got the information from Gamefaqs, and they're not usually wrong unless game companies change the release dates. I will be picking this up, and I'll let you know how it is. I am collecting Adventure Co/Dreamcatcher games, so I know their quality. They are the best at puzzle games. Very little combat, if any, is involved, which is best for me. I'll keep you all posted about this. Btw, I have "The Scoop" zipped if anyone wants to try it. It's impossible to find nowadays.

Here is some more info on this game, and there's to be 4 more produced over the next 6 years!! I think I'm happy about this.

Here is the main page for the game, with some screenshots. They've changed the indians to sailors---for politically correct reasons I assume. I emailed their Marketing director, so hopefully he'll keep me informed of the progress of this game.

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

Yep, looks like it is now available!

Yes, I picked it up last week, and finally got a chance to play through it. It is pretty good. You play Patrick Narracott, Fred's brother. Someone has to do the running around after all. There are 5 endings, but I've only gotten one so far. There is a way to see the original as Agatha intended, shown as a letter being written.

The only character change was the General. His name isn't MacArthur, it's MacKenzie.

I even got a paperback of the book, although it has The Adventure Company stamped onto the front and back. St. Martin's Minotaur published it. Perhaps it'll spur more people to read Christies!!

I can't wait to get it, but I have to, until tax season. I'll post after I've played it.

I LOVE Agatha Christie games too sis (Lori Girard's my sister)! I like both And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express!

A birth certificate shows you were born. A death certificate shows you have died. A photo album shows you have lived.

Have to be honest and didn't realise that these existed, now discovered them on EBAY so with a bit of luck I'll have some in the new year.

Confetti! It's a parade! - Misha Collins

I've been playing And Then There Were None for a few days now, and I really enjoyed it. I finished it yesterday, Sunday, October 14th, 2007 (sorry, I want to get the memory fixed in my head), and even got to see the original ending in the book. The books culprit was actually the person I thought was the murderer in the game, but they switched some things around. Still, it was very amusing.

Yes, it was good. So is Murder on the Orient Express. A bit different than the book, and lots more to mess around with, but still a nice diversion. Poirot is in MotOE, but he's bedridden with a cold, so your character has to bring him information. :)
