About the StoryYou are a private in an organization called the Temporal Corps. As the game begins, a general calls you into his office, explaining that a Corps lieutenant has apparently conceived the insane notion of going back in time to deliberately alter history -- with the apparent aim of destroying civilization, no less. Needless to say, your job is to stop him.
Travel through time with this masterpiece from Legend - review by Afex Tween
Well, for starters, TimeQuest was one of the first adventures by Legend, and one of the best ones as well. It was created by Bob Bates, one of the founders of Legend (who previously worked for Infocom), and one of the most talented adventure designers ever.
TimeQuest has everything in it: intriguing story, rich, literary language, smart puzzles and lots of interaction with surroundings.

The ten major missions concern such important historical events as the burning of the Spanish Armada (you must ensure that Drake meets with Queen Elizabeth I), the Spanish conquest of Mexico (your task here is to re-establish the Quetzlcoatl myth which Vettenmyer has tampered with so that the Aztecs believe themselves to be invincible) and the Mongol invasion of China (without your help they will attack Europe instead). In fact it is worth getting the missions wrong and then attempting to use the interkron to see how the future is affected. Mongol horsemen charging through Paris, knights jousting from motorbikes? What next?

There are two main parts to this game: The puzzles that require fixing what the madman Vettenmyer has altered, and the meta-puzzle of stopping him once and for all. He has left you clues scattered throughout time which seem to point to his whereabouts and a method to reach him. In uncovering this meta-puzzle, the story takes a few twists and turns that make you re-examine everything you thought you knew. It's a delightful twist that makes the game even better.

Games with graphics and/or sound by eyesack
I couldn't find an easy way to search for this, so I figured I'd ask the hivemind: What games use graphics and/or sound to enhance the gameplay, similar to City of Secrets and Necrotic Drift?
Games with maps... by Xionix
I started playing Counterfeit Monkey, and I notice a good map is a way for us newbies to get into the game more easy. And I hate to draw so, are any other games that got a in-game map? It can be any genre.
