About games, have you ever played Lucas Arts's THE DIG? What's your opinion on that?

I know it's considered by many a big flaw by Lucas Arts, but to me it made very entusiastic afternoons playing it with my friends.

It was the time when Full Throttle, Day of The Tentacle, Monkey Island [I'm a BIG monkey island serie fan] also made my pc push to the limits, but the aesthetical scenarios and the "argument" of THE DIG to me were engouh, a diferent approach despite all bad critics around it.

I got a big revival moment last year when I found on a flea market THE DIG only for 7€. Very nice. That day I was to buy also the UBIK videogame, but I was without more money to spent. I never played it, but if it is 25% like the book, the game is assured.

Sadly, I've never played The Dig. I remember hearing mixed things about it, but it sounded interesting, and the pairing of Steven Spielberg and Orson Scott Card struck me as well worth checking out.

I didn't realize there was a Ubik game. That could be a fun setting--I wonder how they adapted it.

you still can get The Dig from the Amazon or others like it, of course today it's very old, but still it's great to play.

The Ubik it was a coincidence, I never about it until I saw on the flea market.
