I recently found this gog.com under their free games listing. It was written by Dave Gibbons & is pretty friggin awesome. Anybody else ever play this?

I found out the hard way that auto-saves are useless in this game. :cry:

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

I got that from another thread I was reading on UM, thank God it wasn't worse.

I don't imagine that it would be for everyone. I'm a huge fan of largely story driven games & Dave Gibbons. So it's Win-Win for me!

PC, but an old 386SX and 1 Mbyte of Ram is enough to run it.

I've been really enjoying it. I keep running in circles at different parts though because I'll overlook a small item laying around. Then when I notice it's laying in whichever spot I'm like "Aw @$%*! Really?! This whole @#%$&*^ time!"
