Description of Rama

A great adaptation of classic sci-fi series by Arthur C.

Clarke and co-designed by the author himself with Gentry Lee, RAMA casts you as a crew member of the exploration team sent to explore the mysterious alien object code-named RAMA that's orbiting Earth. Most puzzles are mathmatical, e.g. decipher the alien numerical system and logic, and are a lot of fun to solve. The third CD is a bonus CD that includes in-depth interviews with both designers. Highly recommended, especially to fans of hard sci-fi and those who love Legend's Mission Critical..

It says MS-DOS. I haven't downloaded it yet (very slow) but you should be able to use Dosbox/Dosbox-X to run it. That's probably more likely to work than ScummVM since this is a very late generation Sierra game and likely to not be well supported by ScummVM for a long time.

Has anyone a solution for Win10? I can't even install the game because of the 64bit issue.

Awesome game! I'm surprised it's not very popular. Too bad I've never finished it, was a bit too challenging for me back then. Hope to beat it now!

Fairly faithful to the Rama II novel, including the 12 main characters. A lot of the backstory is missing, but how can you really make the (economically flawed) Great Chaos and the life of Saint Michael of Sienna part of the adventure? The puzzles and unfolding mystery are well-designed. Andt hey're some of the most challenging puzzles you'll find in a Myst-like game.
