@wendymaree: I had this when it just came out in the old days, but never finished it then... was rather impressed though with the dark atmosphere, so when I saw it on the list I just ^had^ to review it I hope you'll enjoy it!

@justice: are you starting it usign the ds.bat file or one of the executables? You should use the batch-file!

I wouldn't say that this game sacks.

Despite its flaws Darkseed is a classic and one of the most famous adventures ever.

I remember the time it was publiced, there was no pc gamer ( I think also Amiga owners) that hadn't played this mastepiece.

I remember me and my friends were playing the game, each one on his own computer and trying to see who will finish it first. It is a quite difficult game.

It was very unfortunate that we had to wait 3 years for the sequel. If I am not mistaken, a virus destroyed all the work of Cyberdreams and they had to begin from scratch.

I hope in the near future to see also Darkseed 2 in this incredible site.

Keep up the good work!

all i remember about this game were the baby that gets delivered to your doorstep that turns into an alien and back into a human, and buying a gun at the local store. i never knew why i bought the gun but it seemed like a good investement at the time

Yea, they chose some very strange resolution for the Amiga conversion, so they could display more colors I guess. The result was a low refresh rate that was quite hard on they eyes. That was the main reason that kept me from playing this back then. :/

Dear gamers

I'm trying to follow the walkthrough instructions but strangely I can't find the crow-bar inside the car boot in the garage after I done all the actions. Perhaps I could repeat the actions in the right sequence?
I have also some troubles with DosBox!! How can I start a game using it? I try to follow the basic instructions to mount the driver but I can't do it properly!!!
Thanks for you help!!!

Take it easy!

THe WAnderer
