fate of atlantis 2

Fate of Atlantis 2 will be set five years after the original. In the autumn of 1944, as World War Two gradually draws to a close, the Nazis are desperately clutching at straws in order to prevent the inevitable. The fabled city of Atlantis, believed by both Indy and his adversaries to have been destroyed in 1939, still awaits discovery, having withstood the millennia in complete isolation. Its relics and ancient forces, contained for eons, may well destroy humanity in case they should ever escape. When they learn of their earlier misapprehension, the Nazis hasten to turn the tide of the war by doing exactly this: Unleash the powers of the Lost City…

When a fragment of a German communique is intercepted by agents of MI5, they become aware that a prominent researcher and occult expert - Dr. John Burton - may be working with the enemy.

When his London offices are searched, they find only cryptic clues…and are forced to turn to one of his former colleagues for help.

MI5 solicits the help of Marcus Brody and Indiana Jones - who are quickly drawn into the investigation by ties of loyalty, and an old grudge.

On the trail of the missing Dr. Burton, Marcus, Indy, and his student Shelly Hartley discover more than they bargained for - the secret history of an old legend, the device that triggered an ancient arms race, and a source of power which could tip the balance in favor of the forces of darkness.

Maniac Mansion Deluxe

Ever since a meteor landed in the back yard of Dr. Fred and Nurse Edna's Victorian mansion, bizarre things have been happening. First, their mutant son, Weird Ed, dropped out of school. Then patients started disappearing from Country Hospital. And now this strange event is affecting the lives of innocent (and even some not-so-innocent) teenagers. In fact, a girl named Sandy is being held captive in that musty old mansion right now. Sandy's boyfriend, Dave, has lots of friends who need you help to sneak in - and sneak her out.

Now exactly how it all ends up depends entirely on which trio of friends you send in there. And which inhabitants you encounter. In fact, the farther you get inside the mansion, the more weird characters you'll meet. There's Nurse Edna - who's as nasty as she is ugly. There's a disembodied Tentacle who wants you to make him a rock star. And a host of others, who all have their own crazy quirks you'll have to deal with. Everyone in there seems to be working for Dr. Fred. But the question is: Who is Dr. Fred working for?

It could have been such a nice day. Zak's favourite movie is on, most of the work on his novel is done, and Sushi seems to have survived her long stay in the sink quite nicely. Still half asleep, Zak gropes for the mailbox key and wanders down the stairs. Wow, a lot of mail again, he thinks to himself. However, next to the usual advertising for Monolith Burger, this time it also includes a letter from the distant Bogota. Suspecting no evil, Zak opens the envelope. As he reads the first few lines, he loses control of his face…

Zak McKracken: Between Time and Space

The Zak:btas-Team worked about seven years on an inofficial non-commercial sequel to "Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders". Uncountable leisure-times, weekends and summer vacations were spent for "Zak McKracken - Between Time and Space" (Some people already began to title the game "Zak McKracken Forever"), but now it's finally done - and we are very proud of the outcome! It is one of the most extensive fan-adventures ever released and to be released in the next years.

Over 50 high-quality Locations, accompanied with athmospheric music and filled with numerous, lovely animations and challenging puzzles. A ludicrous story fully dubbed and with professional cut-scenes are awaiting you
