Default Looking for a game: Old adventure

I'm looking for an old sci-fi adventure game I used to play back in the mid 90's. I only have vague memories of it, but maybe you'll be able to help me

As said, it's an old sci-fi adventure game. From what I can remember you were stuck in a prison and when you got out, you had to deal with guards in blue uniforms. It was a shareware version, so as soon as you got out of the complex the game ended. I never played the full version. When I remember correctly, you're on a planet of some sort.

As for some specs: it was VGA, isometric/side viewpoint (e.g. Monkey Island) and made by a Dutch developer. Graphics were relativly simple, but the characters and settings were aimed to be realistic. I think I got it from a floppy from some Dutch magazine, so it's probably not very known.

Thanks for any help

I believe that you might be looking for the game named "Another World".

I would be ashamed if I forgot about Another World Awesome game, but it's not the one I'm looking for. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Any other clues?

Nope. It looked even simpler than this game.

If you haven't done it yet take a look at our Adventures, I've added "Sci-fi" and "Futuristic" tags to the filter:

I'm shooting in the fog because we don't have many details, but your description reminded me of this screenshot taken from Beneath a Steel Sky:

It's a small probability considering your description, but how about Little Big Adventure: Twinsen's Adventure?
