Actually Haiden, the pentori games are fantasy, The first mile is horror, saint petersburg and sin city are spy/suspense fiction, and Endgame is naval thriller, the only card carrying murder mystery is greystone.

I've personally tried the pentori game demos, pluss the prequal and also the first mile demo, but once again I found myself not really able to get anywhere, ---- heck, I couldn't get out of the first room in the pentori first light demo.


I'd probably be more interested in their stuff if they weren't quite as self-promoting and smug generally.

Beware the Grue!

Hi,
Also from what I've read on Audiogames, it seems as though all of Malinche's
stuff is some kind of murder mystery or thereabouts. Sure one or two are
good, but at least you look at Infocom, and you see they had several genres
of IF; if Malinche would do that I'd be greatful.

Best Regards,
Hayden

I must confess, I wasn't overly impressed with malinch's stuff myself, which

is why I've not bought any though I've played their free titles and
attempted a couple of demos (though not got far, actually i couldn't get
past the first puzle in the first pentori demo).

I think the thing that narks me most about malinch and actually discourages
me from playing is their website.

Advertizing and telling people about the game is one thing, but I don't want

to have to waid through page after page of ridiculous self congratulations
and smug reports about how much they think of themselves in order to
download and try their games. for me this has the opposite effect to the
intended one and actually puts me off their titles.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi,
Your problem isn't with the game per se, it's with the program you're
using to play it.  The latest versions of Frotz have an unfortunate
problem when it comes to accessibility on Windows, perhaps something to do

with the way text is rendered on screen.  I suggest Filfor as an
alternative which is more readable.
To return to the subject of the games themselves, might I suggest that you

avoid Malinch on general principles?  The company and developer have,
well, a reputation in the interactive fiction community, and not the good
kind.  I highly doubt your game experience will be worth your while.
Hope this helps,
Zack.

Hi Everyone,
I have been away from the list for quite a qhile but since I am having a
problem when trying to play games I thought I would ask if anyone else
has experienced this.
I am using windows xp with jaws 11 and I have installed the newest
version of frotz for windows, version 1.14 by david kinder. Recently I
bought 3 games from Malinche games (z8 files) and downloaded a free one
vanguard. I am having a problem with at least 2 of them (pinched in st
petersburg and vanguard). When I type a command into the frotz command
window the results dont get shown and nothing happens. It is as if text
is just not being printed and I cant continue onward with the game at
all.
According to Howard Sherman the writer behind malinche games the games
have been extensively tested but I do remember from a few years ago that
I also had this seem problem with another of his titles endgame.
The strange thing is that I dont get an error message at all.
Are there any other people on list who ordered a malinche game and
experienced problems like this?
Greetings, Anouk,
