    Escape Velocity: Nova. Not that old or obscure but needs to be available at a realistic price. $30 is not realistic!
    Oni is another, I think that's old enough to qualify.

    Then, of course, all the SCUMM games like Full Throttle, Sam & Max, Day of the Tentacle... At least we have The Dig and that Indiana Jones game I've never played, though.

    I bought a copy from some digital download site for peanuts, however it has the game but not the soundtrack (which was all Warp records artists).

    Wow. That sounds fantastic. I was vaguely familiar with the game, but i had no idea that the likes of Autechre were on the soundtrack. I'm suddenly very interested. So, is the DotEmu version (available here) the one you're talking about?

    King of Dragon Pass needs to see a GOG or at least a Steam release but only way to get a copy as far as I know is paying the devs 25 bucks get a burned copy off their website.

    King of Dragon Pass did get a GOG release. Even better, it's on sale right now for $2.99.

    ...you're welcome.

    A few months back I would've said Bioforge, but since this suddenly appeared on GoG some time ago, I'm gonna go with Sim Ant.

    Quarantine 1 and 2. Quarantine 2 was one of those games I played the demo for ages ago, then was certain, years later, I had dreamed the whole thing.

    I've never understood why Lucasarts releases "The Dig" and "Indian Jones" on steam, but not "Sam and MAx," "Full Throttle," and "Day of the Tentacle." Do they not have the rights for those games anymore, or something?

    Oh. Nevermind then. I can get that shit for cheap now!

    I played a demo of an RTS called Stalingrad a few years ago. I don't think it's on GOG

    Usual preface about this probably not being obscure*, but I'm surprised Jeff Wayne's Computer Game Version of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds is so damn hard to find. I'd been led to believe it only got a sort of failed semi-release and was in a buggy unfinished state, but recent YouTube clips have made it seem a bit lovely, and I was surprised by the sheer amount of comments looking back on it with fondness, complete with casual dialogue recital of the type that only really happens when you spend a lot of time with a game.

    I've managed to nab a copy of the soundtrack, which I'll admit was my main impetus for tracking the game down (one of my favourite albums, morphed into late-90s videogame music - pretty much describes how I write songs, actually), but I'd still like to play the game someday.

    *I love how we're all scared of being the person who excitedly tells of a weird old obscure indie band they've discovered called 'The Beatles'

    that was a fantastic game for the time. I spent hours on this game and Forsaken. Joystick 3D games were the awesome :)

    I am a person who more or less only buys discount games, and never that many. I would say Nove is worth the 30 dollar price tag. Then again, I was lucky enough that my brother shared his key with me. Lots of replayability, and escape velocity (the first) was one of the very first games i played on a PC. (The others would be Alex Kidd in Miracle World and the Zelda Game & Watch). I might be a slight bit too attached.

    I don't know about the others, but i'm fairly sure that Steve Purcell, not Lucasarts, owns the rights for Sam & Max.

    Aaah man, I loved Heretic. I loved the art style, the levels and the weapons. A remake in that same style would be great.

    I'm going to say Trickstyle, a hoverboard racing game. Never seen it anywhere.

    (My reply from the last time somebody asked)
    Here's one everyone forgot: Albion. The sort-of-Ultima VII-style Blue Byte RPG from '96.



    Incredible art direction and worldbuilding, used both overhead and FPS view, an interesting battle mechanic, and a wild storyline. Anyone playing it today would probably think of James Cameron's Avatar first, but there's more to the plot than meets the eye... :-) If you can get it, play it! DOSBox should run it just fine.
    Worth noting: Albion had a huge demo, it was the entire first chapter of the game. You can get a really good taste of the game... but I can't find it anywhere online. Some torrent site maybe?
