Released in 1997, Blade Runner from Westwood (the studio behind Command & Conquer) is a point-and-click adventure game that featured - for the time - groundbreaking real-time 3D graphics and a narrative that felt different every-time you played, with multiple endings and outcomes. Notoriously difficult to get running on modern hardware, a new update to adventure game emulator ScummVM now fully supports this classic.
Which you can download here. This opens up the possibility of Blade Runner popping up on digital platforms like GOG.com, which has long supported older titles via applications like ScummVM and DOSbox.
The story put players in the role of Ray McCoy a detective charged with hunting down replicants - which is a similar setup to both the original 1982 film and the recent Blade Runner 2049. The game though would randomly choose which characters were replicants at the start, changing their behaviour as you progressed through the story. At the time of its release it garnered both critical acclaim and sold over one million copies. So odds are there few CD-ROMs of this lying around somewhere.
