Cool GRAAL & GRAC2 adventures

How many GRAAL & GRAC2 adventures are there? Because those I found already are pretty awesome for PD stuff.



GRAAL:
Escape from Hammy Town! [1999] by Jools Henn
Muscarine or Erica's Trip [2000] by Rainer Appel
Olaf Longhair Goes East [1998] by Per Thulin

GRAC2:
Entity [1998] by Antony Dzeryn & Edmund Clay & John Clay
Epsilon 9 [1996] by Edmund Clay
Experiment [1996] by Edmund Clay & John Clay
Geo's Quest [2001] by Paul Golian
Geo's Quest 2 [2009] by Paul Golian
Keith's Quest [1996] by Jasper Byrne
Lethal Formula [1995] by Edmund Clay
Lord of Alcandria: Chapter II [1999] by Edgardo Federico Rutenberg
Lord of Alcandria: Chapter III [2000] by Edgardo Federico Rutenberg
Lost Prince [1994] by Edmund Clay
StarBase 13 [1993] by Edmund Clay
World Of Magic [1997] by The Bosco Brothers
World Of Magic II [1999] by The Bosco Brothers



For now GRAC2 wins hands down, better quality and bigger quantity.

I remember being in contact with the author of GRAAL, back in the day. He was working on a JAVA port of it at one stage, I wonder what ever happened to it, unfortunately the email no longer works, so I can't ask him.

I was working on a game baaack in the day, I have no idea where it is, even if I still have the files. Have to look around.

I am amazed there is only 2 though, I thought GRAAL was easy to work with, and you could probably produce some awesome games with it.

Edmund didn't write Entity and The Experiment. Starbase 13 and The Lost Prince were plain old AMOS games, not GRAC, though The Lost Prince's engine was later developed into GRAC.

@Vairn: GRAAL is much more difficult based on commands, so it's basically "easier AMOS build in AMOS". But still somewhat a programming language.
GRAC is just a point & click editor build in AMOS.

@ant512: Okay, just checked, they aren't. But created by Ed, so I'll keep them
Entity & Experiment were co-produced by Ed.

Speaking of GRAC, if anyone ever wishes to incorporate its game engine into e.g., ScummVM (whether by porting from AMOS source or a complete rewrite), note that GRAC 2 includes support for AMAL scripts.
I have written an AMAL interpreter in Java which may be of use for such projects (e.g. by porting it to C++), and perhaps some source from Alvyn/Mattathias Basic could also be used.

Could GRAC gather enough interest for that? We already have GRAC games working with UAE + AROS-68k (as it is based on AMOS). But ScummVM? It would at least be a fun idea...

@Mequa: would be even cooler if ScummVM got support for all AMOS games

@rockersuke: thanks, added.

EDIT: Found two more, Geo's Quest 1 & 2

One more you can add to the list of GRAC2 games: The Dodgy Game

There is an entry on Moby Games. Not sure if it is worth adding to Lemon and HOL. Game is just three screens...
