How good it is to see these older gems available here! Anachronox is one of the great RPG games which somehow didn't become as popular as they should have. It has everything a great RPG should have - interesting world, well written characters and a wide selection of quests to keep you busy. Even visuals and sounds are not bad, so they surely were even better at the time of the game's release. I think it uses some kind of Quake 2 engine or variation thereof, so you know what to expect. And the gameplay is much longer than many games offer now (well, except for sandbox games), and it can easily take more than 20 hours to complete the game. But if you immerse yourself in the world of Anachronox, you will surely need much more time and it will be time well spent!
