Checkmate! Thank you, Grandmaster Spectreman! You are the man!

and today, another apostrophe in the games title making the (correct) answer a wrong one... seems there's a dragon dwelling who guards the apostrophe.. maybe dirk (or spectre?) can free this classic of interactive movie-dom from the error?

also: happy new year, guys!

Hopefully Smiling Spectre can fix it again like for Dragon's Breath. There were originally 2 apostrophes in the name of the game.
Spoiler for Screenshot quiz
The second one

was removed. Maybe if the first one
Spoiler for Screenshot quiz
is removed too it will work again.

Now I was able to try both, and both were wrong.

Ugh! I just hope the today’s Abandonia Daily Screenshot Quiz does not get stuck again in the same screenshot of this damn Game like it happened quite recently for several days!

Like today’s Screenshot, this Quiz Error gives the impression that Quiz Player is falling in a bottomless cliff / pit... Kind of Falling off a Cliff dream?

By the way, it was very coincidental that the Quiz Error occurred just on Friday 13th day... Well, I am not a superstitious person and I believe it was a very unfortunate coincidence... *shrug*

On the other hand, the today’s Quiz is working normally. So I can certainly say :

I am not sure because you must remember that this game had problems for several days last year. Ugh!

Ah, thanks for your hard work! Let’s hope those Screenshots from this game do not cause any more problems.
