Simon 1 still is my favorite adventure game, Simon 3D sucked because was 3D, everybody was doing 3D at that time it was the next big step or so they thought. But if I remember well before going to 3D, Simon 3 was developed as another 2D adventure, I was curious if there are still any concepts or paintings from that stage.
Oh and of course, how were the background done in Simon 1 and 2, painted then scanned or digital? Can we get to see any of those awesome background paintings in original for some desktop use? :)
