2d can very much still work, no doubt about it, although i think EFMI's wooden world looks very sweet as well.
as for not wanting speech, and wanting games to have primitive graphics, i just dont understand that.
i am in the complete opposite of the original poster. graphics are very important in this genre, because they are what draws us into these fantasy worlds and makes us marvel at what it would be like to live in such a place.
i also play CMI and EFMI in sequence and would never touch the first 2 games in the series. i've seen playthroughs on youtube.com and they are quite crude, barely containing any music, no speech, horribly square graphics, small playing window and therefore hardly conjuring up any image of a fantasy setting whatsoever.
technology has allowed this series to flourish. lets see sense here shall we.
