Somethings calling me back to his room though; a presence I have not felt since After wishing to be small again, to feel closer to his younger brother, Jason finds himself in a strange new world filled with larger than life furniture, troublesome obstacles, and less-than-helpful occupants.

2# Prune - 2015

Review91Score

The Colonel's Bequest is a character-driven graphic adventure game by Sierra On-Line. The Colonel's Bequest is one of the few Sierra On-Line adventure games to focus more on the characters than puzzles. Regardless of the importance of these elements, it is possible to finish the game without solving any puzzles, discovering many important details about the characters, or even identifying the murderer. The game's unusual title can be accredited to Sierra's long-standing tradition of including "Quest" in the title of nearly every graphical adventure they published.
