This is another of those articles for which I'm having to suppress just a hint of party-pooping, fuddy-duddy guilt. Atlantis is actually a pretty cool legend, and some really fun stories have arisen around it. The Indiana Jones game, about stopping the Nazis from harnessing the immense power of a lost civilisation, was something I had many, many hours of fun with back when I was first discovering point-and-click adventure games.

Damn, this always happens. Excuse me while I go rummage through some of my as-yet-unpacked boxes of assorted junk to dig up some old games. I need to stop inadvertently reminding myself of cool stuff from my adolescence.

Ooh, Day of the Tentacle. Awesome.

Anyway, Atlantis. We'd better start with some background info, and any background info on Atlantis is pretty much obliged to start with Plato.
