View Full Version : Where did you get the game and why?

When and why did you get your copy of The Dig? What were your first thoughts?

I got it when my brother bought it for me exactly a year ago, and after taking a glance at the cover I decided that it was a crappy game. Then I tried it, fell in love and now it's one of my favourites.

It was one of the first games that I waited for. The images from the slideshow were on a magazine's CD and I really loved the look. I had played some LucasArts games before, so I knew what to expect gameplay wise. The prospect of getting one of the first developed-for-CD games with full voices and lots of animations did the rest and I got the game pretty soon after its release.

I get the game in 1998 in a supermarket in germany, if i remember correctly.

I was searching for a christmas present for my girlfriend who loves adventures.

But I kept the game myself and I love it till today.

One day I went to one of my friends and he was playing the game.He was at the part when Brink dies for the first time.I really liked the game and one month ago I downloaded and finished it and it was excellent!

I got it in the Lucas Arts archives pack with Full Throttle and a few other games.

I didn't play it when I first got it, I didn't know how! lol, I'm only 17 now, so I must have been really young. I did manage to beat it eventually though. I think I was still in elementary at the time. I still remember the hard time I had trying to get that damn rat into the trap, I drove myself crazy over that one!

I noticed the LucasArts site has a "patch" that is a savegame that takes place directly after you catch the rat. The puzzle is now labeled as a glitch now I suppose, lol. I did manage to beat it though, so it isn't impossible.

I picked it up at a resale shop. I knew it was supposed to be good and I like adventure games, so I decided to get it. I still haven't actually played it yet, however - I really need to do something about that...

well, my sister and i got the game back in like, '95, when it came out i think. it was the first adventure game we had ever played, i hadn't even heard of the genre... ahh memories.

It took me years to complete The Dig because every time I started playing it I would black out and come round in strange places, hours, even days later.
