Classic FMV Game “Tender Loving Care” Released on GOG

Tender Loving Care ruffled some feathers upon its original release in 1998 for two major reasons. First, the game was irritatingly difficult to classify–it looked like other FMV-heavy point-and-click adventure titles like the Gabriel Knight and Phantasmagoria series, but there weren’t any puzzles to solve; it featured multiple endings, but a randomizing element thrown into the […]

Revenge of the License: The X-Files (PS1)

‘The X-Files’ utterly changed the face of television. It scared us with ghost stories for adults. It boggled our minds with conspiracies within conspiracies. In its early days, before internet access was something everyone took for granted, it gave us a reason to visit the library and research topics ranging from alien abduction and the […]

So Bad It’s Good – Dracula Unleashed Redeems Sega CD Full Motion Video

Okay, full motion video games seem to get a bad rap by the majority of gamers.  No matter what it is, when it was released or who starred in it, gamers like trash talking full motion video (FMV).  It is one of those weird quirks of gaming.  Back on the Sega CD, and on Macintosh/PC’s […]

Sega Saturn Gets Lunacy – Today in Retro Gaming  – May 31st, 1997

Ah, full motion video (FMV) games.  How the world loves to hate you.  Lunacy was not your typical FMV game.  The events here are played out with animated video rather than actors.  Yeah, it is pre-rendered animation but it is EARLY rendered quality.  While I remember back in the day wanting to play Lunacy when […]

Beast Within- A Gabriel Knight Mystery Jumps to FMV – Today in History – December 31st, 1995

What do you do when you are Sierra On-Line, a company known for pushing the envelope, and it is the dawn of a new age in computing?  CD-ROM technology was picking up, becoming cheaper and more widespread with computer gamers. Basically, 1995 was probably the first year that publishers could actually turn a profit in […]

Bandit Gaming- Dragon’s Lair Running on Sinclair ZX81

Alright, homebrew coders are getting scary with some of these projects they are creating.  Sure, Jim Bagley may not be your normal definition of a homebrew coder since he used to work for Ocean Software.  He got Dragon’s Lair running on a Sinclair ZX81 at the recent Retro Computer Museum Valentine’s Event 2015 show.  How […]

Game Hack: Zelda III Receives Update with FMV Cut Scenes and CD Quality Sound

That headline is not misleading, the original Legend of Zelda III: A Link to the Past on Super Nintendo has received an update by fans that includes Full Motion Video (FMV) cutscenes and CD quality audio.  This is all accomplished thanks to a hardware hacker named Byuu, who created BSNES and Higan and more importantly […]

New Game: Five Nights At Freddy’s Shows Full Motion Video is Not Dead

First, you may be wondering why we are covering Five Nights at Freddy’s here on Retro Gaming Magazine. It is simple, Full Motion Video (FMV) games go way back in gaming, to the 80’s actually. Titles like Night Trap (reboot currently looking for funding on Kickstarter) and Sewer Shark were the norm back in the […]

Kickstarter: Night Trap Revamped, it is Full Motion Video and it is Pretty Cool, Seeks Funding

Anyone that has been in gaming from the early days, or at least the late 80’s, will probably remember a time when gaming tried to go Hollywood. What this meant was, actors/actresses and real world stuff was used in more and more games. Not like Mortal Kombat but actual video footage was used to make […]

Night Trap To Make FMV Miracle Return

Anyone that was gaming in the early to mid 1990’s will probably remember the Full Motion Video (FMV) craze that hit gaming. It is funny though, this craze was much older than that, in fact by the time Night Trap saw release, it would almost have been able to be classified as “retro” according to […]
