Cover Following an attack on his cargo-ship by an army of homicidal beechwood armchairs Jacaranda Jim is forced to crashland on the strange world of Ibberspleen IV. Rescued from the burning wreckage by the mysteriously smug Alan the Gribbley, Jim has to do battle with manic-depressive deckchair attendants, the Ibberspleen Post Office and a very sinister network of dank caves.

  • What is the secret of the floating sphere?
  • Why has Alan been hypnotised?
  • What would you do with a cucumber, a gin-spitting pirate and a piece of gristle? No, don't answer that.

  • All this, and more, is revealed in Jacaranda Jim.

    blorb file, Sat 16th Jul 2011
    By Ron - See all my reviews

    The download is a blorb extension file. Can this be run using Adrift 5.0 on a Windows 7 64bit machine? If so, how? I would love to find a game that I can try with 5.0. Ron.

    To update this question with an answer, let me share the email which I received from Campbell.

    Hi Ron,

    The Blorb upload is just a teaser really. It can't be played with ADRIFT 5 until I release 5.0.19 (which can import and export blorbs, to package image files with the game), which will be in the next week or two.

    You can access the original TAF version of this adventure from here: http://forum.adrift.co/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7265

    Cheers,
    Campbell

    Looking at the source of this game is a great way to learn about ADRIFT.
