    Cheers. I love these mystery/puzzle games.

    I got it a while back. It's a code wrapper around an old Amiga-era game so that it runs on newer computers. It's quite good, although gets a bit weird at times, especially near the end.

      Think you must have confused this with some other game? AFAIK Kathy Rain is a recent game developed a few years ago. It uses AGS a modern gaming engine for developing new games, no code wrapper for old games like ScummVM. https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic...

      (AGS has been around for a long time and I'm not sure what version Kathy Rain uses but AGS was first release in 1997 so is definitely not Amiga era and I fairly doubt it would use a version that old anyway. Most recent AGS games use a version that at least supports Windows and Mac OS X. Often they use a fairly recent version because mobile device support has come a long way and AGS backward compatibility can be problematic. Although by the same token, it also means they often use a version around the time development started not when they were released.) As an AGS game it does use low resolution graphics (pixel art) as is common with a number of recent games.

      P.S. If people like thise sort of game Wadjet Eye Games are well known for them, but there are several other developers e.g. Infamous Quests.

        You're right. Katy Rain was actually released in 2016 … it looks and plays like an old Amiga-era game and is set in 1995, so that must be where I got my confusion from. Sorry.

        There are a lot of old games being re-released by these games sites though.
