I like it so well, I've even updated my signature to point to it (see below).
What is the most intriguing game YOU'VE ever played?

it's a game by finnish publisher

and it's basically a turn based iron age freeroam game where you can either roam the land or settle down as a family-guy or a hunter! (ofc there's more in to it)

Looks pretty insane;
At the office now but will have to give this one a try!
I just tried a few rounds;
Thanks for the recommendation.

Most of my favorites are old school (REALLY old school);
-- Pretty new, but the author recently made the 2nd, 3rd and 4th installments free for download
The Wizard's Castle (late 1970's - early 1980's)
-- Likely to forever be my all-time favorite
Zork I, II and III (1980-1982)
-- Way more hours of gameplay than you might expect Links to these are upstairs.

Does anyone know where I can find the flash or w/e version of that 'dark tower' board game from the 80's? I had it once and it vanished
Remember that? It had a rotating tower in the middle and was RPG style, like settlers or shogun...
great thread <3 ZORK, muds forever
someone should rewrite DIKU in ahk

Only Chromatron 1 - 3 are included, but that's still 150 levels;
Not sure why Chromatron 4 wasn't included in the package.

Over 10 hours of gameplay, easily. Play on hard mode, it's still pretty easy.
Very professional flash game: Starwish.
Here is all the media of the game. cutscenes+music player+other
Warning: possibly a long load time.
[*:11r75407]Good RPG side scrolling space SHMUP shooter. (is that a new genre? :lol:)
[*:11r75407]Good quality (anime) character graphics.
[*:11r75407]Hand painted backgrounds.
[*:11r75407]Great custom soundtrack.
[*:11r75407]Plenty of dialog. (skipable too, unlike most games)
Armagetron is another goody (that I haven't played in a while). It kept my attention for atleast 4 years, then a couple years ago it seems a bunch of kids rushed in and ruined the nice relaxed friendly environment. But it might be worth a try for new users.

An amazingly simple game for how challenging it can be. Some of the levels can take days to figure out. I have played it almost daily for 4 years now and still haven't beaten it.
