Loom  1990

Loom is the fourth point-and-click adventure to be built with the SCUMM engine. While still featuring the beautiful graphics that LucasArts' adventure games were known for, Loom differs in that it has a mostly serious storyline and uses a unique interface. The game features a fantasy storyline that takes place in the distant future, when powerful guilds formed communities devoted to their specific craft. The hero, Bobbin Threadbare, lives on the island of Loom, home of the Guild of Weavers. Using a distaff, he can weave four-note tunes called drafts to cast spells. Most drafts can be played backwards to create the opposite effect, such as playing the Opening draft backwards to close something. Originally Bobbin can only play the first three notes on the distaff, but as he becomes more powerful he can use five higher notes. As the mysterious "Loom-child", Bobbin must discover his destiny. Only seven screens are playable in the shareware demo.
