Das Stundenglas

Weltenschmiede / Software 2000 1990
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

It was the year 1990 and a small development team called Weltenschmiede (World Smiths) aspired to become the German Magnetic Scrolls. Text adventures had never been a big number in the German speaking part of the world – but nevertheless, they wanted it to work with graphically illustrated ones now (better late than never?). Today, we know how successfully this went.

Rating: 1.5/6

System: PC

[Mr Creosote] The "Höhlenweltsaga" (roughly: "Saga of Cave World") is the first Point & Click Adventure made by the Bavarian development studio "Weltenschmiede". Before this, they were known for their three illustrated Text Adventures: Das Stundenglas, Die Kathedrale and Hexuma. For these three games, there had been accompanying novels or at least short stories already. The same happened with Höhlenwelt: Main author Harald Evers wrote eight novels based on this world later.

Hexuma – Das Auge des Kal

Weltenschmiede / Software 2000 1992
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Amiga

The development team Weltenschmiede made three text adventures, of which Hexuma is the final one. As that, it has got one major problem: The novelty of a decent German language which had carried Das Stundenglas had worn off when this one came out two years later. So it had to be judged entirely by its raw gameplay and writing qualities, in a time when a text adventure was already widely regarded as an anachronism.
