    "Endless, Nameless", a classic conversational adventure:

    Regarding MOO2 I think Endless Space is a good spiritual successor, or thereabouts. Certainly the 4X game that has stolen most hours of my life, disregarding MOO2 (MOO3 probably hits rock bottom on that list, just lower than GalCiv).

    http://endless-space.amplitude-studios.com/

    It's still in alpha, but playable, as far as I know, but back when I bought it I got it for something like 10€ or thereabouts.

    EDIT: Alright, seems it might have been released. Was a while since I took the time to sit down, been playing Dragon Age again, and my rig has been acting much strange. Also might be worth telling that it does away with turn-based combat, rather using a battle cards system. I myself think the combat system works fine, despite being skeptical in the beginning.

    Definitely a fun game. Plus, once they add mod tools, there should be capability for unlimited replay on new adventures.

    I had a lot of fun with that, more so than minecraft. Its a similar sandbox with building idea, but a flat 2d world, things I like better than minecraft.

    I pre-ordered that on steam and had fun with it. Its definitely worth the asking price if that kinda game interests you.

    Well I'm currently doing a remake of the classic spectrum ccs game Vulcan.
    http://www.ysrnry.co.uk/articles/vulcan.htm

    This was a really good turn based strategy game (remember them?). It's not just Tunisia that's covered but the whole of wwii(!). Anyone interested? Mind you, it's some way off being finished.

    Anyone getting Inquisitor?: http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/inquisitor

    Looks interesting but I'd like some player testimony first.

    It's supposed to be a dark, gritty, dark ages setting with fantasy elements where you play an Inquisitor rooting out heretics, maleficars and other such undesirables. Gameplay seems to be old school arpg a la Diablo or Divine Divinity but with a lot more emphasis on story, conversations and detective work (searching for evidence and witnesses to foul deeds). You can even use medieval torture devices during questioning and, if I undestood correctly, it's also up to you to burn those sentenced of said crimes.

    That can't be hard. just pick anyone at random and start blaming them loudly enough and there comes enough sheepish "good" witnesses out of the woodwork to sentence Mother Mary.

    I must say I find the choice of theme quite odd. It's a rather dark and undesired time/aspect of Christian history for the most part, isn't it? I would have expected that to be more of a balance act then it appears to have been. Or at least replaced Christianity with something else... Maybe they have replaced the countries or something and that is why it works?

    I'm not sure if it's actually Christianity or some differently named fantasy version of it. And while the game tries to be "authentic" in terms of its medieval setting, I don't think it's historical in the sense that it happens in a real contemporary country.

    It's an Eastern European (Czech) game and, like The Witcher, it has an affinity for this kind of dirty low fantasy hence the "odd theme". It's refreshing if nothing else.
