My early recollections as a child from the 80s were of me befriending feral cats, taking private piano lessons and playing MSX Penguin Adventure. Video games played a big role in my life by keeping me company. Each game felt like an adventure that I was about to embark. It’s always exciting to delve into a new world, navigate locations, meet new characters and interact to reach an end goal. Growing up some of my favorites titles were Shivers I & II, 7th Guest, 11th Hour, Myst, Gabriel Knight and the Nancy Drew mystery series.
Back in the day, you couldn’t Google walkthroughs. Instead I wrote hand-written letters to Sierra inc’s Help Center using snail mail. It took weeks for a reply to arrive for something seemingly so small like being stuck in a puzzle. Having said that, the process of waiting eagerly and then finally receiving a letter was so memorable. It made coming back home from school to check if a letter has arrived exciting!
While I play a lot of contemporary titles today, my true passion is old school point-and-click adventures. I’m also a huge fan of escape rooms, word puzzles and brain teasers. I created this blog to keep track of my gaming adventures and to share my thoughts and love for puzzles in general.
