Night at the museum.


<span class="bold">The Dagger of Amon Ra</span>, Laura Bow's sophomore adventure as an intrepid journalist/crime-solver, is now available, DRM-free on GOG.com!

A year after dealing with the Colonel's Bequest, Laura attempts to take a bite out of The Big Apple when assigned a story about the prized Egyptian dagger that just became part of the Leyendecker Museum's collection. Of course, the night of the grand opening will be riddled with bloody murder, shocked aristocrats, and many many clues.

Craig234: I have a terrible story about this game.

Back in the day, I occasionally saw a woman romantically. I hadn't seen her in a year or two and she invited me over.

She happened to have this game playing on her PC, and I started playing it. For a long time. The evening went on while I played and she sat in the other room until it was time to go home.

I never saw her again.

The majority will, but sometimes other scenarios are possible:


As a kid you grow up till you can read then the good things in life will become available to you: tv and video games
Until a certain age you play videos, then you have the era that you play other things, sometimes this works out most of the time it does not, you end up with 1 to 3 kids, then when at an age of 40plus or more you return to where you started: playing video games again.

Some rare scenarios will show you and your partner playing video games like in the young days after you retired, but these scenario's are only few.

gamesfreak64: you have a real DOS machine ?
do you have a real win3x machine aswell?
then you could run Bermuda Syndrome .

I bought Bermuda Syndrome the minute i saw it in our shops (netherlands) but it wont run on windows starting from Vista.

Klumpen0815: Bermuda Syndrome has been OpenSourced a while ago and can be made to run anywhere without emulation:

It's a great but very much unforgiving game with good visuals.
Thanks for the information, i do remember some links like this, they said you could also use some of the demo files, i tried it back then , but it was too much a hassle so i found the filemanager topic and this works for me.

If today;s devs would only develop more games like that (forget the fancy weird voxel /vexel/3d engines) then the search for ways to get my old games working again would become redundant, but since the devs rather release weird looking games with characters looking like their limbs were made of leaves instead of bones,i have to keep searching to fix the old games i have that havent been fixed yet.
If you're a Laura Bow fan, come join us on Facebook. Search for the group Sierra On-Line's Laura Bow Mysteries!
Let's see...last time I installed this game I had a 80mb hard drive. No co-processor (was an SX not DX guy) and 2 MB of ram cost me 62 bucks at the radio shack I bought my Tandy PC from. Being 18 in 1993 a few months before Jurassic Park came out WAS MAGICAL!!!

Freaking A right this game is on here!!!!
Does anyone has an idea how to read those red-coloured parts of a hintbook?

Get a red-blue glasses, or use an image editor.

UPDATE: I checked the hint book, a red transparent film should be enough.

Hey, I just realized that my daughter had a 'secret diary' that worked in a similar way - I have to ask her if she still has it somewhere. So - analog solutions to a digital problem :-D. Big thx

Robin Hood, when? That's the Best Sierra Game.
I never thought I'd see the day, the Laura Bows have arrived on GOG, hallelujah! :-) Thank you GOG and Activision for making this happen!

Now keep those classic Sierra releases coming, there's still plenty more we are missing here! :-)
