Im not sure if it really is
as im sure ubi holds the ip but maybe its been released idk

id suggest trying that on win 7 or earlier though
just give it a try
cant hurt too much  mainly I worry about the nocd patch

also if it has old copy protection  securom starforce etc win 10 wont let you launch the installer
just fyi

this was a very long time ago and yes ubi was the publisher

i believe it was taken off their stores
as the dev is defunct

Ive had issues finding a copy
and no way did ubi even touch the code on this
they are the PUBLISHER for this game not the devs

hehe welcome matey

yeah the classic ole school advents
when the internet didnt exist  was mind racking

Sierra online even made a HINT HOTLINE number (you could dial this in some of their games too)
they charged 4$ a minute for hints on parser and click games


and Lucasarts games well  use everything on everything was the motto
kinda like a tester should

sierras motto
"save early save often"  actually came FROM the coders writing the code\
they just felt it fit in with dying alot in game too!

so games that would or could take weeks or months to beat 
today kids dont want it or it hurts their heads
so they google and beat said games in about 30 min to 1hr

mark darin at ttg's  made his games there with no inv combos just due to the new age kids not understanding
as most of the games required you to mix very odd inv items together.
sam n max example

yep yep

ahh the days of hint books and pay hint lines

What is it you are speaking about?
I dont keep up with FB either...

I'm confused

lemme know!
Here's a screenshot:

And an explanation that it's more of an experiment than actual plans:
Hmm a remake of IV is in the works?
Haha, nah. We've started a remake of practically every single Sierra game at some point.

So I do have to ask again, where is this game being made or half made?
whats the status also
just curious!

I do NOT agree

I do on some levels
LSL1 for example was a horrid revamp


look at games like XIII coming out
or system shock 1 
these games are what its about..
claiming all revamps and remakes out there are bs and political or have agenda is misinformation

most of the revamps are there to get games even working without vm boxes or to completely redo it
in the case of  the two games i listed, both are totally redone 100%
new voice acting and gfx and UI
XIII is said to even have different levels and story changes
while system shock will remain the same maps with added awesomeness

then there are the games like grim fandago revamp which add awesome stuff like commentary PLUS no elevator bug!
etc etc

so whilst I do agree on some level about leaving originals alone there are some games you can never purchase
NOLF for example, no one lives forever 1 and 2, you can NOT find this game to buy digitally due to lame IP issues
If XIII does solid I hear NOLF will be making its way back

So try not to lump everything in one box, in any format not just games but life
its like movies I have dozens I wish were never remade or redone
and yet tons that the remakes are just wicked awesome
LOTR had a cartoon as a kid for me and to see it vamped up to the newer movies was awesome
though star wars is touch and go for me I did like rogue one which was a video game and again a cartoon
I still wish to see a real revamp of "the last unicorn"
google it if you havent seen it
there is so much that is left in the dust
and some warrant redo's and some.. just dont touch it please!

case and point are the revamps done by this awesome crew.
think those shouldnt exist? I do..
Freddy pharkus part 2 please al lowe is on board!
Kings quest is a great example of failed, lame lame game that.. and I won it free in that who is the best evil villain contest(I chose prince humperdink) *im not listening !!!
hugs mate

lemme know!
Id love a colonels bequest or and clara bow remake/vamp
much less kq4!

side note
the revamp of GK1 is terrible
they removed tons of stuff due to modern kids  claiming the game was to "difficult"
welcome kids to ole school gaming sheesh

I would realllllly still love (ye ole school mode) which would add parser input
I believe 2 games now have added this, sadly I cant recall which revamps added it..

and omg kyrandia  but westwood is now EA so gl on rights
id love more of those..
huge hugs all

and please lemme know waahh is going on as im really confused
