Hi

I'm looking for this old game on PC. It was between 1995 and 2005 (I guess).

Never managed to get too far but from what I remember, you play a guy who's brain was put in a flying robot (spherical robot I think).

And your "friends" are real actors (I mean not 3D characters).

You start the game by going inside an alien spaceship.

Point and click, puzzles ...



I was so young sorry for the lack of details.

Those are called FMV adventures. They were popular around 1994 to late 90s. I don't know your game but try to look for it here, maybe you'll recognize it http://fmvworld.com/games3.html

ps. your games sounds a 'bit' like RAMA, which i've just recently installed

Most FMV games are... not very good. But several are absolutely excellent.

I highly recommend Zork Grand Inquisitor and Myst IV Revelations
