HELP! Game I used to have!

32 posts in this topic

So when I was younger me and my sister used to play this game on PC.

But neither of us can remember the name.

Some details: the character was some kind of mouse

it took place in an old mansion that i think was being sold or something

The game was against the clock, but you could collect additional time, which appeared as little golden things that floated around

when you failed a man would stand over a pile of stuff and laugh

long shot, but if you recognise anything please help!!

Unfortunately that is not it. The sections of the game were still images of rooms of the house, it was very much a point and click game.

Can you narrow down a possible year-range? I think I know what you're talking about

Okay so I think I played it around 2004-2006, but I think we’d had it for longer than that so it could potentially be a late 90’s early 2000’s game.

I’m also fairly sure I remember one section of the game was in the kitchen, and there was a secret cellar/room in the floor...

Okay some extra details which I think are somewhat accurate:

you had until midnight, unless you collected the “time”

another one of the areas was the main staircase in the mansion, also I think an office

the cover art of the game had a mouse on it (I’m almost certain) this is what led me to believe you play as a mouse

Hopes this helps, you’re all legends! Cheers

Could you give an example of a game with a similar art style?

Could this be a browser based web-game? I'm having a hard time finding any official retail release...I'll keep searching

Are you sure its point and click? Doesn't seem like there is one between 70s-2000s with a "mouse".

It was 100% a disc based game, I remember having the box, unfortunately that got thrown away

Fairly certain, I don’t think you could walk around very much, other than left and right through each location maybe

- Grim Fandango
- Maniac Mansion

- Shadow Gate

- Uninvited

- Deja Vu

I think it might be some king of obscure, educational title made in france or germany etc. I don't recall any AAA point'n click title with that themes. And trust me - i know them all :)

I tried doing some Googling, but I can't find anything substantial.

 

Maybe Jan Pienkowski's Haunted House?

I think the creatures at the bottom are supposed to be mice. And I don't think it will get any more obscure than this...

I’ve had a look at these and it’s not any of them

As you say it is definitely a more obscure game, not a AAA for sure

This is close to the style of how it looks, not sure if this is the one, I’ll have a look

Unfortunately this also isn’t it, however it is very very similar to this

Mickey Mouse?

I wish it was as simple as Mickey Mouse! Neither of these I’m afraid.

I've played a LOT of point n click adventures too, but this has to be the most obscure one on the planet, haha! It sounds a bit like one of those educational games, but I haven't really played those.
