    Does anyone remember/did anyone play the click adventure game “The Dig”?

    It was purportedly designed and implemented by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, and as a dorky kid who wasn’t into those blokes’ movies I thought it was easily the best thing they ever made together.

    It had an interesting New Agey story where a ship disguised as an asteroid is about to collide with Earth and when you go to try to set explosions on it to set it off course it transports your crew to a very distant alien world in ruins, where you have to discover what went wrong. It had good characters, alien creature design, cinematic sequences, voice acting and ambiance, with many questions left unexplained but of course rewarding you for exploring and finding out more about the civilization, while trying to find a way home.

    I remember – though only vaguely, it’s been a long time. It was a good game, a nice little sci-fi story. I loved the general atmosphere and ambience.

    I am glad I am not the only one. Yes, nice ambience.

    Haha, do you remember “I can’t use those two things together!” ?

    When I was stuck I probably tried every stupid combination of items until it actually did do something.

    I remember that it had some friggin’ awesome box art. Otherwise, never played it… Wanted to though, mostly because of aforementioned box art.
