Yeah, and I also remember many similar threads about that


Anyway, in short: I saw it at a friend's house at 1995 or 96, something like that, but only played it normally for the first time in 2001.

Yeah, I remember!

My mum bought it for me when we were down at the Tazmainian markets. I played it non stop at on grandfathers PC. I didn't even know what to do at first! I was just running around like a chicken without a head! But... ah... the most memorable time of my life!

I don't remember when exactly, but my Dad brought a ton of Playstation games home (only copies o_o). One of them was LBA.

I guess he like the box

My first knowledge of LBA was my brother telling me about some game he'd played at a friend's house in which you had to cure a dino-fly, whatever that was...

We saw a review of LBA2 on PC Gamer around 1997. Then looked for the demo around 1997 too. Then bought the complete one on 1998. Then bought LBA1 on 2002. Then in 2003 I came to MBN and... now in 2005 I'm posting this. Life's kinda funny.

I first found out about LBA2 when I read Moses Ferster's review in the paper.
Len-Man: Was it his interview you've read too?

About LBA1, I don't feel like writing the whole story again. Just say that it was in '95.

Hey, isn't Moshe Ferster the one who played Netzah in Esti Hamechoeret?

According to IMDB, yes. (I never actually watched that...)

Moshe Ferster is mainly known for playing silly characters on TV shows and computer games (The not-so-well-known Piposh series) and he's also a computer game fanatic (he wrote a lot of reviews).

Moses owns, he's teh funny. I first saw him on "Ha-Olam Nehsaf Im Moshe Ve-Assaf" (the 'little university' show on the Kids' Channel with Moses Ferster and Assaf Ashtar).

Too bad I didn't keep that review...

I first saw LBA2 in 1996 at my cousins - It made me drool all over the floor.
I found LBA1 half a year later, and ran it on my 486 dx 66, with 8mb of Ram.
I bought my first CD-rom to play it, but it wouldn't work, so I had to learn how to write an Autoexec.bat and config.sys and setup the vesa drivers and the ESS sound drivers(and I was like 10-11 then). My speakers were almost made by myself back then. When I finally got my hands on LBA2 I had to delete my windows 3.11(it wasn't good for anything anyways...) to run it, becouse I had an 80mb HDD and Norton Commander and Dos 6.22 took about 30 mb. Aaaah the good old days.

I remember my mate was staying over at my house around six or so years ago...

We were just looking on my dad's PC and found the LBA2 demo installed...we had a quick go and the rest is history

Looking back it was pretty suprising that my dad had the game installed as he has never expressed in interest in LBA...but still, good job he installed the demo in retrospect.

One of my cousins was extremely spoilt when it came to games and their consoles, so back in 1997/98 I would constantly see him and his brother playing this attractive looking game and I would hear these interesting musical pieces.

It wasn't until 1999 that I finally asked what this game was and hey presto Little Big Adventure 2. So I started playing it and soon enough I was hooked. Ever since I was on a battle to find LBA2 for myself, finding the demo then shamely forgetting about it until 2000/2001. I ended with forking out a lot of money for a sealed copy, researching as much as I could on the whole Adeline/LBA story, forked out a lot of money on an original LBA 1 and still long to have a framed LBA2 poster with signatures (yea rite).
