in memories

There’s a game I’m trying to remember. I played it some time around 1995, and it was a DOS game. It was aesthetically similar to the original Alone in the Dark (third person camera, camera perspective locked in each room, blocky 3D graphics impressive at the time, horror/adventure theme). I only played the demo.

The demo took place in a museum, and I think there may have been some time travel involved? All I know is that it was modern day, and at one point you’re chased around by a suit of armor with an axe. Or maybe you climb into the suit of armor. I don’t remember. There may have been security laser tripwires.

I could have sworn it was made by Silicon Knights, but that’s not correct. I seem to remember an armadillo-like company logo, which would lead me to believe it was the old Infogrames logo.

Gyaaah this is killing me.

Wasn’t that the PS2 title Shadow of Destiny? I never played it, but I thought it had museums and buildings and other interactions with versions of yourself…

No idea what that game is, but I had a similar “cannot remember the name of the game” situation some time ago, which I solved by posting to Google Answers for $5

Obviously the “some time” is a bit long. Google Answers is no longer around, but my original question and answer are still there:

Best guesses: BioForge or Chronomasters, both exceptional and weird 1995 DOS adventure games. Chronomasters has the time-manipulation theme (worlds are frozen but for a small bubble of passing time that moves with your character), but Bio has the rendered background + 3d character survival-horror style play. If it were either of these, you would almost certainly recognize the main character.

So far none of those titles are correct, but I appreciate the effort.

Possibly Realms of the Haunting?

Nope, Realms was first-person, this game is third-person.

Not having seen your new post this morning, I went on a search and found it by searching Home of the Underdogs:
