Did You Know?


All of the music in this game comes from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake", although some is modified; hence, the Weavers turning into swans, and Bobbin visiting the lake of swans when he ventures outside the Pattern. See more »

A one of a kind adventure.
3 February 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lucas Arts took a chance with the SCUMM engine and made this terrifc game.

The best aspect of this game has got to be the story as you go along. Set in the future, you are Bobbin Threadbare, and 17 year old Weaver whom the rest of his village fears. Great game with great special effects. The other thing that really draws me in is that music.

This game is a very good buy, and the perfect game for beginners. If you can find it, then buy it. You'll be glad you did.
