Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

Discovered an abandonware copy of Seven Cities of Gold. It's a DOS version that's different from my old C-64 copy, but it's familiar enough. My goal is to prove to B that Europeans had no choice but murder native peoples. :shifty:

I randomly thought about this game this morning. Think it was from around 1995. It was creepy as hell - weird stop motion animation. Story was based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. The characters looked like they were modeled in clay - weird, exaggerated features. William S. Burroughs did a large chunk of the voice work. Thomas Dolby did the music. It was one of those games that came and went without much notice - not sure how I even picked it up. Probably just happened upon it while browsing the racks at Best Buy. I think I still have it packed away.

Wow, had no idea Burroughs did vo work for computer games. Should have arranged a heavily licensed rifle range simulator. Billy Burroughs' William Tell Overture, with his grinning face on the cover, as he gives a thumbs up.
