    Nope and nope.
    Apeman - that adventure is as 'serious' as it gets. In fact, it is the only game that made me feel miserable, and although I did want to play and finish it, I had to take a one-day break because of one incident well into the game.

    Sparhawk - think more along the lines of 'fantasy.'

    I hope it is not The Longest Journey. I have heard many say that they liked the game but personally I found the game to be just plain bad.

    Not "The Longest Journey"
    Not "Grim Fandango"
    Not "Starship Titanic"
    Not any game from the "King's Quest" series

    Heck this is getting interesting!

    So you won't have to skip to the previous page, I'll remind the quote and the hints:
    Q: "You will do as I say because it must be done, and because right now you are the only one who can do it."

    H#1: It is not any "action" game.
    H#2: It is spoken in the very first dialogue in the game.
    H#3: This adventure game has been published in the second half of the nineties.
    H#4: It is a serious fantasy game.

    And, to make things a bit easier (maybe you'll catch the drift now):
    Hint #5: This game allows a huge selection of dialogue options, many of which will not be used in the course of the first playthrough. There is often simply no point to ask a question. This dialogue option would probably not be seen by by most players since they wouldn't choose the option that prompts it.
    It was the character's reply if the main character struggled.

    Well I think I'm out of this but I'll throw one more guess to the basket. It would not be one of the Myst games? The Myst games series is one series of adventuregames I've never played and probably never will play.

    I'd say time for a real clue. These hints just dont cut it. How about giving us the company that made it or something because I feel an IJ coming on.

    Nope, not Myst.

    I will not post the name of the company yet. It has been prolific, but the game you are guessing is sorta an oddball for them.

    Hint #6: The game is based on a book.

    Choose what you want for #7 - the author's name, or the company name.

    Nope, I didn't play it. But the fact that it's based on a book pointed me in the right direction. Is it still my turn?
