Call of Cthulhu: Shadow of the Comet
DOS - 1993
Description of Call of Cthulhu: Shadow of the Comet
Shadow of the Comet is one of the best horror games ever produced, with a gripping storyline based on Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, good puzzles, and a wonderful atmosphere and characters despite some interface quirks.
As journalist who arrived in a small town to photograph comet Halley's passing, you soon find that the event signifies a more sinister plan. Some pixel-hunting and time limits are annoying, but the game is excellent overall.

I tried to load it using Boxer. Boxer states it is NOT a DOS game and will not load it.

the blonde in the bottom left corner is definitely Melanie Griffith. And I think the fat dude second row, right most...is the same fat dude from Beetlejuice.

Guy next to the Vincent Price look-alike resembles Patrick Swayze.
@ Tetrah: That's definitely Jack Nicholson
