Managed to get the game working fine alkis. First impressions:
I'm up to 40/800 (the part just after visiting my air-head sister) in the first little sesh. Very nice game with humorous touches - like not being able to move the foam whilst having a bath!
The computer login screen is also nice touch – I think that would have been an ideal opportunity for a little infomercial. Perhaps EAB forum popping up? Or WinUAE?
It does feel oldschool so you've succeeded in that quest - even down to annoyingly trying to click on the part of the screen you actually want to select and a repeatable tune that never seems to stop.
Hopefully no spoilers will be posted here, although a friendly competition claiming how far people have delved into the adventure would be nice.
Great individual effort! I encourage everyone here to try this out.
