Old scifi point and click game

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm trying to find this old point and click game I played as a kid. I don't remember the name but it was set in a space station where everyone was either dead or hiding because of aliens. You had to walk around and find your way through the station by fixing a robot or two, fixing wires so doors would open, and all that classic stuff. Does anybody know what I'm talking about?

Was it in a isometric view? In case you're not sure what that means, it when everything is like this.

I recall one that fits the description, but damn me if I can remember the title.

is iiiiiiiiiittt....

the white chamber?

I remember playing this when it came out, back then I thought it was fantastic for being freeware - not sure how well it's aged. The girl looks ridiculous but the rest of the art looks really well done.

I know it's not about hiding from aliens or being in a space station, but Beneath a Steel Sky involves repairing a robot, hiding out / avoiding security, and getting doors open.

If not this may be obvious but perhaps one of the Space Quest titles?

No, it's none of those games. It was first person, had some decent graphics (not 3d), and wasn't a DOS game.

Though, I might just quit my search and play X-Com now. I heard it's fairly awesome.

you played it as a kid, but it wasn't DOS and you're 26

"as a kid" I would guess to be around 6-12ish? so that would put the timeframe for the game to be around 1990-1996, so late windows 3.1x, very early Win95 era.

First person, but not 3d? So it was prerendered. The only games that jump to mind like that are the Myst games.

Googling around a little bit with this in mind, is it The Journeyman Project?

that's what I said ffs

Yeah but you said "Roger Wilco", which might not be the most helpful for someone trying to remember an exact title. "ffs"

Hmm, first person adventure / point and click? There I'm pretty much limited to the 3 obvious Icom games, Mindshadow, Myst, and Labyrinth of Time, so I'm pretty much out of ideas...

Do you recall what platform it was on? amiga, mac, windows...? Text heavy like Shadowgate or more like Myst?
