Hello,

Can any one help me out here, I am looking for the member of
the Monty Python team who later went on to make books and
games for the playstation 2 also the pc i think, i think his name
was Terry Pritchard but i may be wrong, can some one please
help me to find out which member of the python team this was.
they where mostly point and click games i believe, but i may be
wrong again, it's been many years now since i played them and
i wanted them for my grandsone, as those puzzle solving games
where great back then and am sure there still a lot of fun now ..

thank's in advance for any help with this ............

The MP computer games

Monty Python's Meaning of Life,
Monty Python the Quest for the Holy Grail,
Monty Python's Looney Bin (box set containing The Complete waste of Time and Monty Python: the Quest for the Holy Grail)
Monty Python's Complete Waste of Time (PC and Mac versions)

are all available on Amazon.com, mostly from 2nd hand sellers. All of the games are for the most part point and click.

The Python you're looking for is Terry Gilliam. The Waste ofTime game is the most like his work (in terms of it being really bizarre!)

Hope this helps

CF

Hello,

Thank's for the info on this matter, but from what i remember
it is none of them that are mentioned, if i remember correctly
the game started of with a young boy going on a quest and he
had to solve puzzle's and meet up with a wizard, also the spectre
of death roamed around this game, it was all about wizards's
solving puzzle's and in the end savng his village or city some
thing like that, also 1 thing i do remember it was all cartoon
characters like, if there is 1 thing that it's like is the game Broken
Sword, it is very much like this, only i am sure it was made by
a former member of the python team....... thank's again for any
help with this subject ....
Also i was just looking at another
thread when i came across this name, if i am right he was
trying to save some where called Ank or Ang Morphok, i
think that is correct, so can any 1 remember a game with
that Ank morphok or Ang Morphok in it ... thank's again..

I think the game you mean could be the Discworld computer games. It's based on the books by Terry Pratchett. Eric Idle did the voice of the main character, Rincewind.

Thank you very much for that reply, that is exactly what i am looking for,

I remember Terry Prachett talks about the Python humor on the DVD "Monty Python: In the beginning."

Terry Pratchett has never been a member of Monty Python, nor has he ever written with or for the Pythons.

But a lot of Python fans seem strangely attracted to his books.
