If you like this game you should definitely play the online game Arcane by Sarbakan. they are both based on Lovecraft's works.
You can find it herehttp://www.arcanegame.com

Sorry, after reading the (otherwise great) review, I'm a little confused about one thing:

Is there a version with speech, or not?
If so, any chance of a voice addon being uploaded to the site eventually? I already have Shadow of the Comet (floppy), but I find that speech always adds much more atmosphere to adventure games.

I agree
I don't have much time either.
I gave the game a try but soon became bored of it the lack of sound is usually not annoying. But this game... I don't know, it really bothered me here.

and next to homework and tests I still have to finish loads of other games I bought, like:
Red Alert 1 (not new, but I am playing it)
Doom 3 (final levels)
Ground Control 2 (should finish this... but its a bit boring now)
Myst 4 (ehm... I think I'll wait for a walkthrough to come out )
Farcry (brother finally returned it to me... should play it one day)
Syberia 2 (bought it, reached the end, lost all savegame, uninstalled... now I need to start all over)
Beyond Good & Evil (reached the ending but couldn't defeat the final boss since i had forgotten to buy/find all +1 life potions. Had to defeat the boss with 7 lives instead of the required 12... which obviously didn't work)

See this is what happens when I get depressed.
My usual miserly character changes into that...

7 games
all worth about 50 euros
350 euros spent in a short time...
I eventually took all my money I had at home to the bank so I would stop buying games.

Press 'd' for disk options and there you'll find load and save options.
With 'Tab' you can see and choose commands.
