It's a long story

This is a game from back when the ps2 and xbox was fairly new consoles. I can only recall seeing it once as a kid in a now defunct gamestore. I remember being intrigued by this ps2 game wich boasted to have large open areas to explore. The setting seemed to be excotic/alien fantasy of some sort, (or maybe just regular fantasy?) I remember the player character being a blue skinned humanoid. From the pictures on the back of the box, it seemed to be a third person action adventure style game. Anybody know if this is an actual game or if I'm misremembering stuff?


Bit of a long shot but maybe "Giants: Citizen Kabuto"

I've got one for the thread:
It's an early-ish PSX game, from before '97-'98 or so. It's a strategy game with a fantasy setting. Not an SRPG though, more like Ogre Battle or Dragon Force IIRC, where your units wander around on the map and then enter a separate screen for combat. It was almost certainly real time. I can't remember if there was any sort of base building component to it, but I think you played as the leader of a mercenary company. Mostly, I remember whenever your units got caught in a surprise attack, they shouted "AMBUSH!"in extremely hammy VA.

Was it Ogre Battle 64? Different console, but right around that time and matched your description.

There was a PSX version of Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen, IIRC very similar to the SNES one, and it sounds very much like it.

I playtested this game before it was released. It wasn't great, but I was compensated with tons of pizza and some PC games. There's some very silly bonus dialogue during the ending credits.

It was definitely a PSX game, and it wasn't any version of Ogre Battle, which I've only played on SNES.

I remember getting a demo of a game called "Speaker for the Dead" on the coverrdisc of a magazine. It had no relation to the novel by Orson Scott Card. It had an isometric viewpoint and kind of looked like poo poo even for the time and was a turn based strategy game where everyone moved on tiles.

Did it ever get released? Did I dream all of it?

From an online pal:

"I remember a grey brick wall maze and possible a knight character trying to get into a castle" Says it's not Gauntlet and he's sure the walls were grey.

I ask if he means like the windows maze screensaver:

"No, more 2.5D
But not isometric"

It's for the Commodore 64, could be disk or cassette. Said he's checked against Lemon64's list without results, would have been available in the UK, played it no later than 1992

The Staff of Karnath, maybe? It's got that Deadly Towers kind of view angle, although the walls aren't really grey. Or maybe Avenger if you want more of a Gauntlet vibe?

There's a side-scrolling adventure game I vaguely remember from the early 90's, with static screens that had puzzles or things to manipulate similar to how Prince of Persia was laid out. I feel like it was set on a tropical island. You'd come across a gap that needed to be bridged and you'd come back later once you knocked a tree over or something, or you'd be a screen or two above an area and break something/drop it down to cause a path to open or defeat something. I remember there being jail cells that characters were in or something, looked to be made out of wood? Your character was short and chubby almost like Kirby I think. I'm fairly sure it was for NES or maybe very early SNES? I guess it could be early Genesis even maybe. Not a lot to go on, I know, I've been pouring through lists of NES and SNES games but have been coming up blank.

I had a thorough look through that series and I don't think that's it. I remember the screens being static like individual puzzles, you'd walk off the left of the screen to change to an adjacent screen, in some sort of interconnected island or forest. I got excited for a minute because I thought I recognized the main character.

I don't recognize either one of those, I think graphically it was worse than these two and a bit clunkier.

Treasure Island Dizzy has the static flip screen thing, but it was released on a weird unlicensed cart with three other games. Check it out anyway

I think this might be it! I don't remember the upper part of the screen with your score and inventory but it was also 25+ years ago as well.

This sounds like it could be Puggsy. Or Lester the Unlikely but the character description is way off for that.
