I played AMBER: Journeys Beyond on CDROM more than a decade ago and it was super strange and I never got very far. I did some research last week after a helpful bunch of people helped me figure out the name of the game on twitter (thanks Eric!), and I found out that it is very difficult to run on a modern computer.
SO I FOUND THIS AMAZING LP. The person who does it is really great and explains the game and isn’t annoying in any way. This is the holy grail of LPs. It takes somewhere around two hours to get through, but I think the game is really neat and pretty advanced for a game that came out in 1998.
It is also super dark and every plotline deals with grisly murder or suicide or creepy dolls.
