Here's another one I've been looking for:

You are on a space station. The station is going to be destroyed. You must interact with other characters on the space station to try to figure out what happens before it falls into the sun. There is also like a dream realm thing. It was a very weird adventure game. 3d graphics, although not very good.

Sentient.
Who the fuck names a space station 'Icarus' and is surprised when it goes careening into the sun?
It's like naming a ship 'Titanic' and being surprised when it gets sunk.

So there's this game I've been thinking about for a while which I played when I was about 7. I only played the demo that came on a PC gaming magazine's demo disc.

It was an RTS and the primary resource which was harvested was pumpkins, from memory. From my vague memory of the intro cinematic it was a strange post-apocalypse setting which might have been semi-steampunk. It was possible to use some kind of 'messenger' unit to communicate with the enemy and exchange certain things with them, I believe and there was a unit with a bow which could also steal technology from the enemy.

That's basically all I remember, anyone who thinks this sounds familiar, a name would be nice.

NOTE: I played this around 2001-2002.


No matter: I've found it. 'Rising Lands' was its name!

I remember that. It looked like it had great potential, but failed completely to utilize it. I remember it taking me hours to learn how to harvest food.

Help me again, dear Bay12ers! There was an old action/point-and-click adventure game where you are infected with a disease, and spend the game looking for cure. Similar enough to Silver. I think it was Dark... something.

dont know about that, but there's a new first person adventure game (year old) called Miasmata that is pretty much the same idea.  start out infected, and try to find a cure.

I've thought of another game I'd like the name of. Funny that I'm posting in this topic then isn't it? :P

Hm, let's see. It was a 3D game with pre-rendered backgrounds. I remember the game was set in Japan or China, probably in the past.

The one scene I remember from it was this; your... party I think had fought with another group on the grounds of a temple/mansion made of wood, or at least a house. After the battle you were given exposition from one of the defeated villains, after which your character(s) left, cut to the villain lying on the ground puking up some mind control worms or some such.

I think I saw it around 2000 or before. The graphics were like Silent Hill 1, that blocky, early type of character modelling. I saw the game on the computer, but since the theme seems to be rather more JRPG then WRPG I'm wondering whether it was an emulated game. I'm pretty sure it was a horror game.

Okay, so, I need help remembering a game with a description as follows;
You're a riot cop or SWAT or some sort of gun-toting cop man. The city you're in has become gang and violence/crime riddled, and you basically fight your way through hordes of gangsters wearing crazy masks and whatnot. Riot shields(both cop and gang make) were used widely, and it had special missions you could do to unlock stuff.
The final level involved the gangs hitting you at your apartment, and you had to fight your way through them and a meat-processing plant.
I recall you could arrest some mooks for bonuses, or just straight up execute them.

Damn fun game, by the by. I'm glad I picked it up when I had the chance.

Seconded. Fun even if(especially if?) you ignore the fact that T-Zero(the police unit that consists entirely of the player, plus one or two NPCs) really is a corrupt militia that takes it's "police" efforts way beyond what is legal.

I return to haunt this thread! :P Seriously, you guys are awesome.

There's a certain game that I have given up on trying to remember, but was just reminded of indirectly elsewhere. It was a platformer, where you played as some sort of a chip inside a computer world. You were on a mission to rescue your girlfriend, and you did that by pummeling through the enemies and collecting new powers Rayman-style. It was colourful, and a lot of fun, and I want to play that again.

Does any of that ring a bell?

Would be helpful to know the platform and a rough timeframe, because the bell it rings with me is this old NES game.
