This is ScatterShots, where I guess what's going on in random screenshots of old games I've never played. The first round with Alone in the Dark was so fun that I'm eager to jump right back in, this time featuring Chronomaster and King's Quest: Mask of Eternity. In a few weeks we'll return to a normal(?) VGA with One Sentence Reviews.

Chronomaster

In this updated version of a classic puzzle, you may only ask one question to all six guards before you may proceed. None of them may lie but the only question you get to ask is 'So, uh, do you work out?'

Ddeap in thoughts... pondering the big questaons about armbands and lens flares.

Saving khaki Rastafarians from the confetti geyser. AGAIN. I don't want to tell you guys how to live, but have you ever considered moving your camp like ten feet in any direction?

Seems pretty self-explanatory.

Scenes like this might lead you to think Chronomaster doesn't handle real-world cultures with respect... (continued in next caption)

... but I assure you they are tactful.

Ddeap in thoughts with my partner, who dual wields guns just so he can scratch his head with the extra gun.

A Chronomaster is an elite time traveling agent specially trained in the art of drowning in waist-deep water.

'Thanks, it's an honor. Honor? Oh god that sounded stupid. I mean, you too. I mean... oh fuck it.'

Careful, you fool! Never shoot guns near exposed barrels of EKAF!

'What? The invitation said business casual. These are my business casual clothes.'

King's Quest: Mask of Eternity

Your quest, human, is to find the sheet music for this 'Ricola' song everyone keeps asking me about.

Jumping for joy, delighted by the fact that I am a regular sized person in a world of completely logical scale and perspective.

Oh man, I have the worst timing! Every time I strike up a conversation with this lady she has a very important task that sends me far away.
