Keeping that classic adventure game series alive
Ah, I don't know if this is the correct place to post this, but I just would like to thank you for keeping this blog up in memory of Presto and The Journeyman Project.Like many I had my first taste of TJP at seven years of age when TJP: Turbo came with my Packard Bell Christmas morning. It was the first computer game I ever played. After I eventually conquered it (which I've always considered quite an accomplishment for being so young /braggart), I procured a copy of BIT for Windows 95. I had many lengthy snail mail conversations with the former Presto secretary, and still have the letters with the TJP symbol on them (she was helping me to find a copy of BIT and I don't think she realized I was just a kid at the time). BIT took me longer to beat, and has remained dear in my heart since. Anyhow, fast forward fifteen years and I've found myself having a piqued interest in playing TJP again. I just purchased a copy of Pegasus Prime on eBay (for $30 from stocks4me, no great ripoff here)and can't wait to play it. Still have to dig out my old copies of TJP: Turbo and BIT. We'll see how Windows 7 likes them. After that I plan to finally play (!) LOT, which I actually never had the pleasure of owning or even playing.So thanks again for keeping this blog up and the memory of Presto alive. Your company and games inspired so much wonder and introduced me to the wonderful world of PC games. I wish you still made them like they used to, because nowadays it seems there isn't anything nearly as creative anymore. Thanks for the memories!-RobbieP.S. I'll let you know what happens when I boot up Pegasus Prime at the next Team Fortress 2/Battlefield: Bad Company 2 LAN party I go to. Should be interesting!
