I never knew there were games made after these books...
After a quick google, I understand they are adventure/puzzle/point and click games? Are they good? Should I try them?
Uh, and I guess there's no Linux version, right? Well, I guess I could boot into windoze to give them a try...

I wouldn't say fan. I read a couple. The first one was hysterical... The other ones didn't impress me that much. I'll definitely get back to him.
And I played the game. I'm not sure which one. I got stuck somewhere.

Most definetly you must try them. They are all mostly point and click, and the dialog is hilarious in some. Discworld I and II were not only released for the console systems, but also for DOS/Windows, and I think Discworld Noir was under 98 and might run under XP. This is a link to information on all Discworld games: http://www.lspace.org/games/index.html

I have both I and II for playstation (original copies). Sadly Discworld I does not run well on a playstation 2, some of the dialog is skipped every now and then, nor does it work very well on epsxe(playstation emulator). Speed issues and again skipped dialog. Discworld II works a little better, speed and sound is normal, just some slight texture glitches, but still playable.

generally speaking i tend to associate books with that kind of title with somekind of stuffs that i can never touch(even if i try hard) even if they are freely aquired ... those titles look really silly for me anyway ...


//i donno ... probably i'm really a "covers" kind of guy ... no more no less ...
