I think including that game among the "most beautiful" of DOS games might be a bit of a stretch haha
Well, it kinda was beautiful, considering the time it was released in and its origin..
Early-mid 90s, Germany, in 486 era. It's also a classic; in fact, there used to be a fan site over here :

But yes, it was a shareware game programmed by two brothers..
So if we're comparing that to a commercial game made by a big a$$ company with lots of money and artists,
then sure, it's not as visually appealing. Well, at least it does look better than SOMI. 😉
Also, it made a lot of references to the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series..
Just look at the restaurant at the edge of nowhere, the password for the hibernation chambers (42 in words) etc ..
Now tell me that this game doesn't "fit" this place. 😁
Edit: Some typos fixed.
Edit: ScummVM added support for the Supernova engine a while ago.
