Have a look over at the vintage gaming forums, identify exactly which versions you have and then you can get an idea of what they are worth. You might be surprised how much some of them sell for these days. There are some mad collectors out there who want every different version of these games even if the only difference between another version they already have is that there is a different address for the distributor printed on the box!

I love the fact that there are 3 paths to take - a point-and-click with real replay value is pretty sweet. This game is a staple of my childhood.

I have actually been playing it recently on the Wii - it was a free add on in Staff of Kings.

I love the Indy franchise, and I hate point and click adventure games for this reason. Skyrim is an adventure game. Just Cause 2 is an adventure game. Clicking mindlessly between inventory and parts of the canvas, and then giving up and googling the answers to non-intuitive "puzzles" is not an adventure game.

Why did you write out in full the solution to that puzzle? People have either played the game and know that, haven't played it and don't want it spoiled, or haven't played it and don't care.

That goes for the guy above me quoting it too.

This is one of my favorite adventure games. I mean, I last played it in the early 90s along with Monkey Island 1 + 2, but I still look back on those 3 games as some of the best games I've ever played.

Look it's DJPlaceboing! Why no new vids man? Regardless, agreed on MI 1&2, they rocked.

Anyhoo, Cheers for the lulz

Thumbs up It's 1992 all over again.

Today, I noticed with great pleasure that Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis was on deal of the day. Had I known it was available through Steam I would have purchased it long ago. It is a game of fond memories for me.

Back in yesteryear, I worked in a quality control lab for a large computer manufacturer. My first glimpse of the fate of Atlantis was when we were testing a smoking PC with a 1Gb hard drive.

After many oohs and ahhs, we wondered who would ever need such huge amounts of disk space. Anyway, we gathered around the PC to watch Fate of Atlantis being played and be impressed by the gameplay and amazing graphics.

I was so impressed that I ended up purchasing a copy for my brother's Amiga, which came on around 13 floppy disks if I remember correctly and they needed regular swapping. I never got the chance to finish it because I'd moved into my own place.

So tonight I go back 20 years to relive some old memories. I may be gone for some time.

Thanks Steam..

For folks who want to use DOSBox or ScummVM to get the old (but better-sounding) music processing back, you only have to extract the ATLANTIS.000 file that was embedded into the "Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.exe" engine.

Check this document :
http://koti.kapsi.fi/~jvaltane/Steam...mmVM/indy4.txt

The guy explains how to do it with the "dd" command (available with Linux, but also for Windows with GnuWin32, CoreUtils package, first link of the Download section).

I can confirm it works quite well, except that DOSBox doesn't let you scale back the game to a 4:3 ratio if you have another screen ratio.

I don't get it. I download gnuwin but I don't understand where or how the command line is supposed to work.

That's not rocket science, but you have to use the Windows Command-Line shell.
By default the binary will be installed in "C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\bin".

Use the Win+R combinaison (or Start/Execute...) and type :
-> cmd
In the black/white window, type (assuming you installed GnuWin32 in the default folder) :
-> cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\bin"
Then (assuming you installed Steam in G as I did, otherwise change the path to the correct directory) :
-> dd if="G:\Steam\SteamApps\common\indiana jones and the fate of atlantis\Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.exe" of="G:\Steam\SteamApps\common\indiana jones and the fate of atlantis\ATLANTIS.000" bs=1 skip=224336 count=12035
