They aren't DOS, but, since quite a few DOS games are Click and Point, I thought I'd share these with you. All are comedy, though, so don't expect any "Beneath a Steel Sky"s:

Ozzie and the Quantum Playwright: http://ozzie.adventuredevelopers.com/
About: Don't worry, it has nothing to do with Ozzie Osbourne. Ozzie is a college student who has to stop the Dean from building an accounting library because, if he does, the theatre will have to be removed. That means his girlfriend will be forced to switch colleges. And nobody wants to lose a chick. Despite my obvious lack of explanation, this also deals a good bit with time travel and many other interesting things.

Out of Order: http://outoforder.adventuredevelopers.com/
About: Hurford, the main character, wakes up in a middle of a storm one day only to see that he's been relocated to a futuristic, alien-invaded college dorm. He tries to open his door at the beginning, but it seems to go vertically up. This game is hilarious, filled with "happy" robots, referrences to pop culture, and many, many other things. It's my newest obsession as of late, and I will soon review it for Game Hippo. It may very well be my first 10/10.

That Nighe Before: http://scurvy.adventuredevelopers.com/tnb.html
About: Okay, let me tell you right off the bat that I am not a big fan of this. I feel the characters move to slow, and there are quite a few gripes I have with it. I thought it was worth mention, though, as it's definitely longer than the above two (4 acts thus far) and is definitely one of the most popular freeware adventure games. The story starts out with you and your girlfriend near a lake. All of a sudden, there's a bright flash, and the next thing you know is you wake up in your bed at home. Suddenly, there's an FBI agent knocking on your door about to arrest you, due to the fact that your girlfriend is missing. As I said, I don't really like this game, but it's so popular that it was worth mention.

I've already talked about the next two in "Find Old Games", but for those of you who don't visit that forum regularly, here it is:

King's Quest remake: http://www.tierraentertainment.com/
About: Well, whaddya know. It's a freeware remake of King's Quest. Most people have played it so I won't go into details.

King's Quest 2 remake: http://www.tierraentertainment.com/
About: Well, surprise again. It's a freeware remake of King's Quest 2. This one has a few plot twists and surprises, though. Most people have played KQ2 so I won't go into detail about the base plot.

Those are all I can think of right now.

NOTE: The creators of the KQ 1 and 2 remakes are also making a Quest for Glory II remake but it's not out yet.

the best one was made using AGS.

its a 2.5 part series called Larry Vales. He is a traffic cop from Stagnant Tennesee (the division? STD... Stagnant Traffic Department lol) These games are funny and involve a lot of immature potty jokes, but they are also kinda original (the solution to first problem in the 2nd game... your car is outta oil so you have to take the sponge, wipe it on the fry cookin' teen's face, and wring it out in the car.) THey are fairly small in size too.

visit This Site for the games.
