A DEEP SPACE ADVENTURE BY SEAN CLARK IN COLLABORATION WITH FILMMAKER STEVEN SPIELBERG An asteroid the size of a small moon is on a crash course toward Earth, and only NASA veteran Boston Low has the expertise to stop it. Along for the ride are award-winning journalist Maggie Robbins and internationally renowned geologist Ludger Brink. Once the wayward asteroid is nuked into a safe orbit, the trio conducts a routine examination of the rocky surface. What they uncover is anything but routine. Low, Brink and Robbins unwittingly trigger a mechanism that transforms the asteroid into a crystal-like spacecraft. The team is hurtled across the galaxy to a planet so desolate, Brink is moved to name it Cocytus, after the 9th circle of Hell in Dante’s inferno. The bleak landscape was obviously once home to a highly evolved civilization, with remnants of sophisticated architecture, advanced technology and an intricate network of underground tunnels. But no Cocytans. Who were the original inhabitants of this once rich empire-turned-wasteland? What are those apparitions that mysteriously appear from time to time? Why have Low, Robbins, and Brink been brought to this place? And how can Low keep his team from unraveling in the face of such uncertainty? To return to Earth, they must dig for answers, both on the planet’s surface and deep within themselves. From the combined talents of LucasArts and legendary Steven Spielberg comes an epic adventure that plunges headlong into the very core of the unknown. And takes you with it. Nearly 200 locations and hundreds of puzzles Robert Patrick of T2 as the voice of Boston Low Special effects contributed by Industrial Light & Magic Dialogue contributed by award-winning sci-fi writer Orson Scott Card Alluring Wagnerian musical score sets the epic tone

The Dig reviews and comments

Translated by

Original Title: The Dig Availments: 1995 Language: German (with Voice) Age recommendation: From 12 SYSTEM requirements: PC 486 DX 33 MHz 256 VGA PCI video card 8 MB RAM 1 MB Hard drive 2x CD-ROM Recommended: 486 DX2 with 66 MHz memory Place for Scores Four Years it took until The Dig (the Excavation) developed from the first Approaches to The market, Beginning in 1995. Even if the Graphics are not as modern as with many other Games, the old Wisdom applies here: What lasts for a long time is finally Fun. This is true over the other, especially since the Basis was a (as yet) unfilmed script by Steven Spielberg. You can clearly note that to the Adventure. In addition to honed Dialogues, it has an interesting History as a Background. Even though, as is often the case in Computer Games, it is a matter of saving the Earth, the Dig does have some very surprising Twists until the time comes. An Asteroid is on a Collision course with Earth. The Player controls an All-Expedition, [Screenshot: Press conference] from astronaut Comander Boston Low (which we control), Journalist Maggie Robbins, Archaeologist Ludger Brink, Cargo specialist and Senator Cora Miles and Shuttle pilot Ken Borden exists. They are said to be carrying the Celestial Body to another Orbit with the Help of Explosive charges. However, it soon turns out that this is not one of the normal Chunks flying around in Space, but a Product of extraternatric Intelligence, more precisely a Spaceship that the Landing team of our Crew (namely Low, Brink and Robbins) also Unforeseen hijacked to a strange Planet. This is where the actual Adventure begins. In our Search for a Way to get back home, we have to get through some group dynamic Processes, pick up a lot of Objects, learn to operate strange Machines and finally even talk to Extraterrestrials. Since more than 200 Places have to be explored, there are enough Moments of Over-mixing. The dense Playing Atmosphere results from the wonderful musical Accompaniment and the sculptural Character Studies of the Characters. Puzzles are massive, always being logically constructed and slightly increasing in Difficulty. The Installation is without further Difficulty. If there are any, you can resort to an interactively designed Troubleshooting, which should also allow Laypeople to run the Game. It's Especially fun when you play to several. This allows everyone to get involved in solving the Puzzles. Frustration is more likely to be avoided and together you amuse yourself even better. Due to its Dialogues (and Non-violence), the Dig is not only suitable for Children aged 9 And over, but also for Adults quite exciting and entertaining. Source: Tentakelvilla.de
