The game is over, thanks to those who have participated.
This game was quite different from the previous one (the “quote game”) for reasons that I’ll explain in another post.
Let’s have a look at the answers, first.
(I remember you that you had to guess the games, not the name of the sidekicks)
“Froderick the bat” from “A Vampyre Story”. The name of the character is of course a reference to “Young Frankenstein”. The background graphics of this game were drawn by Bill Tiller, the artist who drew the backgrounds of “Curse of Monkey Island”.
“Spot” from “The Whispered World”.
“Oscar” from the “Syberia” series. I was quite surprised to see that nobody guessed this character, because it’s probably one of the most loved sidekicks in adventure games. When Oscar fullfills its destiny in “Syberia 2”, it’s probably one of the most poetic and mysterious moments in adventure game storytelling.
“Ben the bear” from “Anna’s Quest”.
“Gavin” from “The Adventures of Bertram Fiddle”. Funny short game, you should try it.
“Luther” from “Freddi Fish”.
“Harvey” from “Edna & Harvey”.
“Sparrowson” from “Aviary Attorney”, which is a parody of “Ace Attorney” that uses the beautiful original art of J. J. Grandville.
“Joey Mallone” from the “Blackwell” series. The story of this series has been acclaimed by many players and reviewers, the games also received a few Aggie Awards. Joey and Rosangela (the other protagonist) have become one of the most famous “strange couples” in recent adventure game history.
“Ted E. Bear” from “Bear with me”. This was the only recent game of the list, so I wasn’t expecting it to be guessed by many players.
And the winner is…

Congratulations to @Festarossa for his very good score: 7/10!
He was also the only player who provided a substantial quantity of correct answers.
Festarossa wins the game but he doesn’t get the prize because he told me that he already owns “Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse” and he asked me to give the prize to the person who came second.
So the prize goes to @Ignacio !
I’ll write him a private message containing the link to download the game. I also want to thank Festarossa for his kind gesture.
A suggestion to all those people who didn’t participate just because “I only recognized X”: sometimes X can be enough, so the next time just f’ng TRY!
I hope that you enjoyed the game. Let me know if you would like to see another similar contest in the following days.
