Have You Played… Cruise For A Corpse?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Not too long ago, I was lamenting Telltale’s latest set of license agreements. Sure, Borderlands has started well, but will Game of Thrones be another Walking Dead of sorts? A super-serious basket of grief – Something For The BleakEnd. What I’d really like to see is a season of Agatha Christie. I’m not fussy about the particulars: Marple, Poirot…even Tommy and Tuppence. But give me a quaint old-fashioned and very British whodunit series, with politeness, poisoning and tea with the vicar.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

While that no doubt bought him a mansion made of solid gold basketballs, his titles since suggest a slow decline, with his once-great studio Delphine Software International closing down in 2004. Follow-up company VectorCell met an abrupt end in 2008 after a Flashback remake and disastrous horror game AMY failed to generate requisite digital funbucks.

I would have predicted a Kickstarter any moment now, but looks like he’s instead gone traditional and partnered up with a publisher for his next effort, Subject 13, which is billed as a return to his acclaimed sci-fi adventure roots.

Voulez-Vous Un Remake De Flashback?

Flashback est un jeu vidéo de 1992 par Delphine, et est le best-seller de fabrication française de jeu de tous les temps. Beaucoup ont demandé à plusieurs reprises une nouvelle version de celui-ci, après le troisième match a été annulé.

Je me souviens que la recherche Flashback magnifique mais étant légèrement irritant pour jouer, donc je ne suis probablement pas la bonne personne pour écrire cet article. Cependant, il semble un remake qui se passe, selon , qui a une image présumée d’un “HD” version de ce jeu d’action populaire.
