You are running Adblock...
We're really sorry for the inconvenience, but please would you disable your ad-blocker? Our adverts are relevant and non-intrusive, they appear only at the top and the sides, never in the content. They don't include auto-playing audio either, they really won't spoil your enjoyment of the site. Thank you in advance!
Want to see this appeal go away forever? Support us on Patreon and we'll make that happen! Click the button on the left to find out more.
"I'm not running an ad-blocker!" - Refresh/reload the page, if you still see the panda or have other problems then click here to contact us immediately, thanks.
"Why are you doing this?" - Frankly we're struggling to make ends meet here especially since the site got more popular. The only way we can think to cover our costs is to run ads, but if so many of you keep blocking them...
"But I never click ads!" - Doesn't matter, you should only click them if they interest you. We get paid based on the number of views AND the number of clicks.
"You ruined the site!!!1! I want to send you hate mail!!" - Sure, click here.
Another fact - We have the software and the power to completely block adblock users from our site, but we're not going to, at least for now. We figure most of you would like to support us and you only installed Adblock because of other sites that aren't so considerate with their ad placement. Please, don't punish us because of them, in the seven or so years I've been a blogger/webmaster I've ALWAYS considered the need to balance monetisation with reader experience. I want to build an audience not send them away.
So go on, whitelist us and any other site you love. If it wasn't for ads, the internet would lose a whole chunk of really great niche content like this, which would be a real shame in our opinion.
Now, go ahead and read the page if you want to, but wouldn't it be much more convenient if you just whitelisted us? :)
There are some ghostly goings on in an old house in North Carolina. Your enthusiastic ghost hunter friend Dr. Roxanne Westbridge is already on the scene, testing out her super new ghost detecting device. Eager to make sure the good doctor doesn’t get spirited away, you quickly drive to the mansion, only to crash your car due to a paranormal encounter once you arrive. Amber is another example of an early CD-ROM adventure game. Like many early CD titles, it used the medium to store lots of pre-rendered video and graphics. This gave the visuals a boost in quality over what was typically available at the time, but limited exploration and movement around the mansion to the pre-prepared vantage points stored on the games CD. While it’s easy to write the game off with it’s dated visuals and often clunky control system, more patient or simply nostalgic players will find that this is a compelling and excellently written adventure title.
The original installer for Amber is a 16 bit executable and will not run on 64 bit systems at all. Even if you have a 32 bit version of Windows, we strongly recommend that you use the replacement installer instead. The replacement installer is available here. Simply download the replacement installer and run it, making sure your Amber CD-ROM is in the drive. The installer will not only install the game but apply several patches to allow it to run on Windows Vista, 7 or 8.
Playing the game
Once the game has been installed with the replacement installer, there are no further steps to take and you can start enjoying the game.
Completing the game
We have not tested this game from start to finish and according to some users there are still some bugs in the updated version. Check in on the SquirtTheCat forums for more information, this thread in particular has workarounds for possible bugs in the game.
