Beautifull and amazing game i loved it.

nightimelady

dam! i'm not surprised though it was impossibly hard, i would love to see a longplay for phobia too, that was one i never quite managed to complete, despite playing it solid for days!

Man this takes me back. Check my channel for a vid called "My room in 1989". You can see my Amiga 500 sitting on my desk in it. Hah... Great vid.

david Benavides

This game was awesome, remake for ps3. Thumps up.

Shazbut01

Will we ever see the likes of this on a home computer again? I'd pray every day if I thought there was a chance...

Comp Fox

I long to hear the "scrrr scrrr" of the disk drive...

When I was a kid I built a crude landscape of the first place of the game with the cliff, the trees, cemetery, tents and log in the water. I even made a clam with 2 2x2 pieces glued together and painted a circle on it's center in red. I can barely remember how the place was built but I followed how the game looked as close as I could with the limited type of lego pieces I had.
Edit: I wish I could erase the solutions from my mind to these adventure games. Many of them I beat with a walkthrough, putting the fun out of them. I might have been too young. But I still wouldn't be able to beat Zak McKrakent without a walkthrough to this day :)

SNAAAKE!

Oh how I miss my Amiga...such great times! *tear rolls down cheek*

@cubex55 Composer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

die zauber

so beautiful....hadnt heard of it till now

gwz

The game that deserves a remake most of all. Also, if you play on HARD mode you get to see what happens when the thug lifts your hood. Scary stuff!

@cubex55 The music is from Swan Lake though

Nice - Loom is such a good old game... puts a smile on my face to see all this again - thx!

Xerosch

You know, the best love stories are always the ones in which they don't get each other. Maybe it's for the better.

I played this game on a 286. Still it was a lot faster than in this video... zzzZZZZZzz -_-

Rattlesnake2002

and the Classic Background Music! Tshaikovsky :-)

nilo4ever

aaaah, the good old days. Brings tears to my eyes. Remember playing this on my friends 286 laptop lol.

alzico

Fucking hell nostalgia overload, life really is all uphill after the magic of childhood.

Dimitris Rakopoulos

How old are you?

Xerosch

Unfortunately most fans of Loom don't know that there was a genuine edition with fully spoken dialogue and 256 colours. It's definately worth checking eBay for and the most precious CD-ROM game I own.

fish and banana

At 0:29:30 when i was a kid i got stuck at this point for days, then my mother walked by one day while i was trying to figure it out and just suggested i play the tune! lol

Truzyxx

Your guess is as good as mine. Or why his hood's able to completely shadow over something that produces that much light. If I remember correctly, the light was kinda greenish, but it's been a LOOOONG time. I sorta got the impression that Bobbin didn't really have any control over what happened when his hood was lowered. 'Course, nobody had ever done it to him before. It does, however, raise some interesting questions about Weaver family life and reproduction.

CheezeCracker

Steam just released the game for download

Stake2

I think this is one example from the days games were closer to poetry and art. These days, it's all about sex, speed and entertainment.

Marina Gabriela Bonofiglio

great vid loved that game

Ben Dover

Aye!

FATxDAN

INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF LOOM!!

RobobTheGreat

What a nostalgia kick! Really brings back memories of playing Loom (MS-DOS floppy disk version). Also brings back memories of the Commodore Amiga: a computer system with a huge library of good games and sound capabilities AHEAD OF ITS TIME...but with painfully slow loading screens (though the Amiga version of Lemmings was sweet!). Love hearing the ending music, too (Dance of the Little Swans from Act 4 of Swan Lake, I believe)! It really captures the game's bittersweet denoument...

THE GAMER DOWN UNDER

Remember playing this when I was 9 years old. Amazing game.

Leeland Hackbarth

This... Brings... Back... Memories...

MrWhitman

I played this game once before. I never much cared for the ending, though. I mean, I liked Goodmold and Fleece, and Rusty. It's sad that all those guilds are now doomed to be ruled by Chaos. But... it's closer to reality, sometimes there really is no all's well that end's well ending.

Snaw3

My childhood?? loom lemmings and rainbow island? I LOVEE IT I WANNA GO BACK TO IT

Marc Oliveras

I love this game. Really beautiful.

trixen

I always thought this game deserved a sequel. They left it very open at the end as though they were planning to do one, as Chaos says, "Know that we will most assuredly meet again." Yet they never did a sequel... :(

RiZaeL

Thanks for the info, I get nostalgic when I listen to it (was 4 or 5 back when I played this game ;) )

Lord Dsp

Amiga forever

anon nym

@ benami7777 I finished it also with my dad..

JVLdesign

I believe Youtube applies anti-aliasing to the video, so it's less blurry in HD :)

Muz

huaahhh this game was nice ;) but real confusing at some parts

Truzyxx

You can see it if you play the game on the hardest mode. Or you can ask me to tell you. ;)

magnusm4

needs voice

bigdaddy496

ah, i loved playing this game with this soundtrack, made it all the more mystical

Max Guyon

1990!

Alfonso Nishikawa

@Ilissill And a lot from Tchaikovsky

J o n a t h a n

i spent most my childhood trying to beat this game, i did it in the end lol
 With no help from the internet because i didn't have the internet till 1997 all on my own i'm proud of myself think i go and get a lollypop.

AnotherSchmoe

@ShinigamiAnger That's what I love about these. They are still enjoyable. It's not even a nostalgia thing for me since I didn't play most of these when they came out and am just getting around to them now. They are also good games to play that you can involve young children in, that aren't all bloody or obscene and can help their problem solving (and reading with subtitles turned on in talkie versions) skills. I've been playing some of these with a couple of young boys and they love them.

Gary Moore

@Ilissill i know there are several classical songs in this. msg back if you want help finding out the names.

thinkfaster

The soundtrack just so happens to be "Swan Lake" by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovksy. You can see it live sometime :)

Yodude1017

They were actually going to do a trilogy, but the project fell through, I believe it was because of the poor sales of this game, but I could be mistaken.

Victor Johansson

OMFG! I still remember the tunes to most of the stuff! This game is one of those games that brings me warm memories... played it through so many times.

PooKneader

That bloke from the Scumm bar sent me here.

Pablo Montes

the version of the game i have has less quality, but i like it that way, more retro :P swan sea in 8 bits, thats really cool and geek

Toby Walker

Fantastic game! :D Pity this version has my least favourite audio of them all. :/

Christoph Smaul

Can I download this game anywhere?! Plz tell me! Luv this game!

sp00s

This and XCom are the 2 games I will never forget... anyone know where to listen to the audio cassette that came with it?

gonzo fish

can you do a longplay of Goblins or dizzy?

stabbingmeagain

I think he was being sarcastic.

crassenti

dang I really wanna play this game again, guess I'll have to settle with watching someone else play it :) thanks for posting

e3ovuziotica

Oh, this was the most important game for me ever! & Amiga <3

J o n a t h a n

amazing game i beat this all on my own as a kid took me months.

Doomsdayman

@Ilissill Its Swanlake dude The midi was made buy "The Fat Man".

Shinigami

All the SCUMM based games were (and still ARE) awsome.

Athena Mastrella

nice

pauldento

This looks absolutely lovely :3

Turelion85

i like Lucas adventures point 'n' click games. I finished MI 1,2,3,4 , Loom, Sam & Max, maniac mansion 2 Day of tentacle and i was close to finish indiana jones and the fate of atlantis

justandre

amazing how well i remember all this... and great music

spearPYN

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Loom and Secret of Monkey Island might be the very best adventure games ever! They all were done by pretty much the same team in 89 and 90. I love Amiga versions of them.

Dukefazon

This game feels like some dark christmas.

Alfonso Nishikawa

@Ilissill And other of the game are from Tchaikovsky

福千

懐し 英語わかんなくても 頑張ってクリアできたゲーム。。 ここで見れて嬉しい。昔より英語力上がったかなー?音階を奏でて起こる魔法がなかなか。 ゲームに付属の魔道書みたいなのとかしゃれてた。

S

I don't know about sex but speed is what I love.... I am not a Sonic fan boy!

nightimelady

do you know if anyone has done it yet.. a longplay for captain blood would be amazing, that game stumped me as a kid! got no where on it

DBoy2029

I love how Monkey Island made reference to this game when you make Guybrush say "I'm Bobbin. Are you my mother?" In one instance of said line, Meathook replies "No, your mother was a duck."

Eliskoopa

I didn't play Loom until a couple of years ago and I had so much fun. This game is pure fun I'm telling you!

Max Guyon

good night!

mindbender500

i loved this game...it was the best adventure....on the same level together with Monkey Island, Zak McCracken. i always waited for a sequel!!!!!!!!!!!

Adam Richardson

well imagine that, Sherlock! do you even know how long ago this game came out? obviously it was released when you weren't even conceived.

SiLeNCel2

loom was one of those games my father bought for the whole family. i was about 8 years old when i played this and sooo proud to beat it before them all, including my dad... he was p*ssed! xD but damn, such a long time and could almost remember every screen, those graphics were burnd into my mind forever, great work by lucas arts! however, the scene when chaos appears gave me nightmares back then, he looked really grim... and the end made me cry. too much for an 8 year-old boy! ;)

Herr Niemand

Can you upload 1080p? Graphics look like crap.

Truzyxx

Okay: it's a big ball of light. It shines brightly enough to show Cob's skeleton through his skin, then somehow sucks him up. Bobbin raises his hood again and that's that. Never explains what all that's about, really, though in the walkthrough manual that came with my game it says that Bobbin didn't know what was going to happen either.

Sensenwerk

I totally agree. The music, the wonderful atmosphere created with the mostly dark and intense pictures and the story... : ) Beauteous to resense all of this!

hardcorl

OMG loved this game...

thinkfaster

It actually makes some degree of sense, Youtube 240p has compression artifacts in both video and sound. It's far from pixel perfect 320x240.

Stevan Makarevich

There was such a beauty and charm in these old games - higher tech does not equate to better games.
This was an golden era of gaming - thank God for emulators (and being able to still run my old Amiga 500 after all these years).
Thanks so much for taking the time to make these videos - you are amazing!

Achasbajs

@Ilissill It's music by the russian composer Tchaikovsky, I think a lot (if not all) is from The Swan lake

La Mazmorra Abandon

One of the best adventures that have been developed throughout history. Playing it at the time was an almost magical experience.

Neidfaktor Crew

Was soll die nervige Werbung?

Tal Tamir

The audio started out awful but got better. Story was interesting, seems like very much setting up a sequel.

Roel

I think my first interest in English language started when I played this game. I had a dictionary and a notepad to write down 'drafts' and new words. SUCH a great game... pure sentiment! My god, do I love LOOM, the MI's and GrimFandango!

Ahvie

It's available on Steam now. I still visit Loom Island every few months ~.^

Ancalimon

There is no CD audio here. Game had standard Amiga modules.

motocrossmaniac1980

@cubex55 all themes of loom are taken from Chaikovsky.

gonzo fish

homebrew is the way forward for classic games ...

I recall reading that the fully voice acted version actually cuts lot of content so it's not really prefered version.

only257

Awesome never heard of this computer game, lucas arts also did zombies ate my neighbors ?

Mathieu Leader

very exciting

MrAlman8

Love your baby pic with your Dad, its very nice.

JetblackThemeTime

You were an adorable babby.

Shinji Schneider

Damn i loved that game. So beautiful and sad at the same time.

Too sad they never finished the trilogy.

DancemaniaMania

This was a really nice video, reliving memories about you and your dad.

Robert K.

Your dad has cool hats.

Sitharos

Wow... I haven't seen Loom since the mid 90's... blast from the past!
