The Hand of st.James - a GTW?

A google search reveals little. It's not in tosec or hol but an old (4/1992)magazine I have announces that it was going to be released by "interactive fantasy fiction", require 1mb ram and have 32 colors. There is also an ambigious sentence that says "IFF is used for graphics"

Sorry about the image quality, it's a photo, not a scan.

My guess was that the game was planned to be released for ST and the reviewer made a mistake but it's not mentioned in the st database fred posted and this "graphics will be IFF" thing suggests at least some plans were made for amiga.

Northern languages resemble Turkish to me sometimes, I thought that was only me

Yes that's on of the two results google finds but doesn't give much clue if amiga version was indeed planned or not.

Just ask the company. If anyone should still know it's them.

I emailed the company once before to ask for some info about their games but didn't get a response. Somebody else might have more luck!

A very old topic...
I just found a preview pic of the game in an old german mag (Powerplay 3/92 page 11).



It says that Impressions planned Amiga, ST and PC versions of the game. I searched a bit but I couldn't find further infos about the game. Or was it maybe released under a different name?
