Chaluul's Curse - A remake of a PC adventure game originally released in 1995

We've mentioned lots of text adventure games on Indie Retro News, from those released on the Amstrad, to the more recent ones on the Commodore 64. Well here's another Adventure game you might like to try that has recently appeared on itch io, and it's BrocantyGames PC remake of 'Chaluul's Curse':  A PC adventure game originally released in 1995 on the cover CD of issue 11/95 of the German computer games magazine "PC Spiel", and then a later port as a C64 version by Sönke Wolfgramm in July of this year. 

Commodore 64 version available (HERE)

Here is what the website says about Chaluul's Curse. "Howard Carter, archaeologist and hobby detective, is asked for help by an old friend. It's about the secret of an ancient sword of the Knights Templar, which is said to have a fatal curse on it. In chapter 1 of "Chaluul's Curse", Carter tries to unravel the mystery of the sword". The game was written in Adventure Game Studio, is freeware for Windows, Linux and MAC, several puzzles are slightly rewritten to make them more logical, contains many extra responses to player actions, different mouse controls compared to the original, new music and more you'll just have to experience for yourselves.

  1. This may not be the most appropriate place to post this, but is there any chance of the video player remembering the last volume setting and thus not always starting at the maximum possible volume? Thanks :-)

  2. Hi, the game always uses the default volume unless you load a save game that has a different volume set.
    So the splash-screen and the main-menu always uses the default volume, which is 75%.

    1. Ah, I meant the video player here on this site, not the volume in game. Sorry for the confusion!
