Heroes of Might and Magic non-interactive demo

A little while ago I stumbled upon this non-interactive demo of the first Heroes game. I was surprised that It was nearly 200 megabytes in size, since nobody would be crazy enough to download that much in 1995. Turns out it was made for CES 1995. So here it is. Enjoy.

“Ivan Lozhkin: Price of Freedom” Russian Space Quest ripoff playthrough

Иван Ложкин: Цена Свободы is a 1998 Russian adventure game that is relatively obscure even in the Motherland. I’ve seen a bunch of ads for it in various magazines throughout ’98, but only seen it in a store once. It was never hiding the fact that it was… erm… “inspired” by the Space Quest series […]

“Duke Nukem 3D” review
