Okay, who's up for a little creepy point and click adventure? How about one where you play as the creature instead of a victim trying to escape? Well, here's your wish granted. This point and click has you performing all sorts of puzzles and even better is there's multiple endings! The real highlight here however is it stars the one and only, Tim Curry, yes the sweet transvestite who made a man with blonde hair and a tan is the doctor! Of course he steals the show.

I'm up for it, but how do you get this game? No listings on Ebay.

Remember this is a PAL release so you may have more compatibility issues then a typical NTSC Sega Saturn game?

I played it for a little bit with a Pseudo Saturn and don't remember any obvious issues. IIRC the Saturn, CD-i, and 3DO usually do pretty OK with PAL games; it's the PlayStation that sometimes likes to throw a fit about them (and the N64 doesn't love 'em either).

The Saturn Unlocker makes your saturn able to play any region. I don't know if Psuedo-Saturn does the same thing, but if it does you should be fine.

I got it! And yes, it is a European import Saturn game. Works with my Action Replay or Pseudo Saturn.

I have to admit I was holding my breath firing it up. The game's user interface is so bad it's hard to tell it was even working or not!

I love the case. It's like a heavy duty, extra thick DVD case! Is this how games were sold in Europe?

Look forward to my full review in the next few weeks.

Awesome! I love seeing those FMV adventures get reviewed. :D

BTW any chance of changing the title of this thread, so that people out there don't get confused and think there was a Sega CD version of this game (or confuse it with the actual Frankenstein Sega CD game)? I keep doing a double-take whenever I see it...
