Will it play 7th Guest? If not, not interested.
It would've, probably. I played it on my dad's 386 and it was choppy AF but playable. Decades of actual-system-requirements-being-met later, I've never touched that fucking game and probably never will again.
Chicken the Did
You all are reminding me that both kickstarters to reboot 7th Guest failed (They even found the Stauf actor!) but Mighty No. 9 met its goal. :(
Hmm.. it's 6 bux on Steam, maybe I should let go of my 12-year-old anger. But basically it'd be hard to replicate that frame rate on the intro FMV (probably 2FPS) and whenever a video event occurred you'd see it coming (loading) from a mile away. Like, I was aware that minimum means minimum and my system was running at that par at best, but unlike Wolf3D, DOOM and others, it's REALLY hard to enjoy a (mostly) FMV game in the same way, as you couldn't lower the resolution or play the game at half-screen. Then came the big FMV backlash of the mid-90s, and by the time I built my first PC for MYTH/Unreal, I guess I just never looked back.
My biggest challenge was enabling the right drivers to get this stuff to run pre-pentium (486 AST). I managed to get battle chess to run but I think once I finally upgraded enough to get 7th Guest to run on that thing it was just as iz is describing: lowball settings just to get the game to play.
