Hehe, don't worry about it. It's nice to see you deleting them, but if some slip through what can you do. At least they are easily recognizable (!) and thus avoidable.

Haha, well since Blackwell Epiphany I really adore his style. It's the perfect mix of handdrawn lushness while still reatining a certain pixel perfection. Can't wait to see Technobabylon.

Almost the same here. My first Wadjet Eye game was Gemini Rue of course. Then I tried out the Blackwell games and sadly never finished them. I must confess, that my interest in Wadjet Eye just recently grew again, when I watched a Blackwell Epiphany longplay on YouTube. Yes, I didn't buy the game but just "watched" it.

That's why I at least immediately bought Resonance and now Primordia. I also paid 5 USD extra each, to compensate a bit for the Blackwell Epiphany loss, lol.  : :P

Hmm okay, that sounds reasonable of course. But then, I'd even try out lowres sprites on "highres" (640 x 480) backgrounds. Should be worth the additional graphical "impact" with something like Primordia. Like I said, Blackwell Epiphany is just awesome and imho quite perfect. Especially compared to older Sierra VGA adventures, which tended to look quite mushy and blurry, too. Ben Chandler really optimized his style by now.

Can't wait for Technobabylon. Can I send you 20 USD already and preoder ist? :D

I was actually also thinking about this. I thought it's an AGS engine limitation, until I saw that there are also highres AGS games. :D

The thing is, I was always assuming the graphics for like Primordia, the later Blackwell games and Resonance were originally created in a higher resolution anyway, just to scale them down later on. Thus resulting in kind of more blurry graphics, whilst hand pixeled backgrounds from old 2D games look much crisper. Especially Primordia looks that way, since it's really detailed and blurry in parts. It still looks gorgeous, but I think it also would have benefitted greatly from just a bit more resolution (640 x 480). Nobody expects it to be 1080p, I think.

Blackwell Epiphany on the other hand is just gorgeous in 320 x 240. While it also looks handdrawn and resized, it clearly shows some kind of "optimization". No pixel is unnecessary blurred, no line is accidentally too thick, etc. It's the most gorgeous looking game in your catalogue, imho. I really can't wait to see the artist's new work... which I hope, is in 320 x 240 again.

Oh yes, that already sound fantastic. I am a huge fan of the Gemini Rue soundtrack and really can't wait to finally see, hear and play the Technobabylon remake. Will definitely preorder it right away, if that's actually possible.

I am not a music person myself, so I can't really explain, why I liked the Gemini Rue soundtrack (and now that Prisoner of Consciousness track) so much. It just created this moody, dreadful sci-fi atmosphere, whilst still being rooted on earth due to the more traditional instruments like Piano or Saxophone, if I heard that correctly. Point is, it's the perfect mix of "classical" and "spacey".
