Default Can Anyone Identify This Adventure Game Please?

I'm trying to remember this old adventure game, but I only remember parts of it.

Can anyone remember the title of it?

You play a bald man, and you are looking for your friend who has gone missing. I think the friend turns out to be a baddie though.

I remember there was a train station, and you used trains to travel from place to place.

I also remember an area with dinosaurs, and I think there was a volcano as well.

Any ideas?

I know nearly all adventure games but this one doesn't really ring a bell. Some more info perhaps? Was it VGA? Point & click?

Sorry, yes it was vga point & click. Kinda similar to Blade Runner.

I remember at one point, you had to scare woman in the wine celler with a rat (poor woman).

The train station was used to travel, like a map screen, but you had to find coin before you could get into the station.

There was also an electric fence you had to get over.

Very odd - it rings no bell at all yet I know nearly every adventure of note. It didn't have 3D rendered screens did it?

EDIT actually the game might be Future Wars. You do travel by train, you travel back in time as well and you wear a round hat that may have made you think you were bald.

It's not Future Wars.

The screens in my game are more advanced, and more colourful. There is also speech in my game, and you don't travel back in time. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Maybe if I describe the train station more? There is an esculator going up and down. Then there is a security forcefield. It is here that you must buy a train pass \ ticket. You only have to do this once - after that, you can just walk through the forcefield, and it detects that you have the ticket already. Then you walk right into the train. For some reason, I think the brick wall in the train station is important, but I can't remember why.

Any other ideas?

EDIT: He (the bald man) wears dark shades, as well.

So it's futuristic? If it has speech it must come on CD, hmm. Was it a DOS game?

Fubb, it's not Beneath A Steel Sky, although that is excellent game.


Red Avatar. Yes, it's futuristic. It's all dark and atmostpheric, like Blade Runner. I'm guessing it was mid-late 1990s, so it must have come on cd, and it was probably not Dos.

These questions are helping me remember more of it. I can see the bald man clearly in my head. He has a brown jacket.

I think at one stage, you have to get through a horror \ haunted \ abandoned theme park.

Hmmm let me look around a bit - it does ring a little bell.

Was it in VGA or SVGA? Did it have pre-rendered graphics?
