Game Title:
Release Date: xx-xx-1995
Release Number: 1
Series: CD-Rom Era

Description:  Surviving a dare by your friends to spend the night in a haunted museum is how Shivers begins, but it soon turns into a challenge of capturing the evil Ixupi, ghosts of South American legend, in pots scattered throughout the museum.  The game is similar to Myst in many aspects in that it's an adventure game with a 1st-person slideshow-type presentation. Though unlike Myst, you have a life meter and the Ixupi can steal life from it if you aren't careful.   (From Mobygames description)

Alternate Releases:

Roberta Williams, who designed Sierra's first game, Mystery House in 1980, felt it was time to write another murder mystery which lived up to the computer capabilities of the late eighties. Mystery House, which was put on public domain in 1988, was the first computer game ever with graphics, but it lacked colors, animation and sound. The Colonel's Bequest was developed, using EGA graphics, Sierra's SCI engine, sound and a music score, as well as featuring a deeper plot and more detailed character descriptions.

The game has a sequel, The Dagger of Amon Ra, which is also the last Laura Bow game. Both games are also included in the 1997 King's Quest Collection and the Roberta Williams Anthology. Although the original release of The Colonel's Bequest can still relatively easily be found on online auctions, a complete original game is considered as a true collector's item, as it contains many goodies which are often missing from second-hand sales, particularly the Laura Bow pen and notebook. The games copyright protection is also quite original: the gamer needs to use a magnifying glass (included in the box) to identify a fingerprint on the game screen.

Hey guys! For anyone interested in playing Shivers 1 on Windows, visit Mnuemonic Games's Facebook page. They have a "demo" of the game that works wonderfully on modern Windows (and also Android), even my Windows 10. However, it does start from the office, and it won't have the movie clips throughout. If you want the full game and still have the original disc for it, you can replace three files in the demo with the CD's version: resmap.000, ressci.000, resource.sfx. Don't forget to copy and paste the movie folder with all of the clips into the demo's folder, too! After that, it starts you from the very beginning. So far, I've gotten to the tunnels behind the library, and everything works flawlessly.

Best thing is that it's all totally free. You just need to make sure you copy and replace those important files.
