Are there any new adventures, point and click true adventures.
No time trial, no sudden death, no shoot em ups, back to the days of
Colossal cave, which I'm trying to find one which will run on XP.
Like Lair of the Witch for Spectrum.
In the fashion of Night Long, Grim Fandango, Discworld Noir.
Broken sword 1 and 2 (not 3), Syberia 1 and 2 (with a few less puzzles)
The great Gabriel Knight 1, Monkey Island (all of em)
Amber Journeys Beyond, Legacy of Time, Master Lu, Kings Quest (up to 7).

Are there any of these types of adventure still being produced?

There are plenty of traditional point-and-click adventure games
available:

Legacy Dark Shadows
Moment of Silence
Midnight Nowhere
Syberia 1&2
Broken Sword 3
Black Mirror
Runaway

And coming up soon:
Martin Mystere
and Still Life

and you didn't mention The Longest Journey -- it's one of the greatest
and longest(!) adventure games ever made.

If you liked Amber, you might like Dark Fall: The Journal and
Dark Fall: Lights Out.

If you liked Broken Sword 1 and 2, you might like Runaway.

Return to Mysterious Island is good if you enjoy inventory
puzzles with multiple solutions.

Amerzone is older than Syberia, but if you enjoyed Syberia
you might also enjoy Amerzone. People have played it on XP,
though it wasn't made for XP.

I'm not sure what to make of that. Syberia wasn't noted
for its puzzles. Gabriel Knight and Monkey Island had
tougher puzzles than the Syberia games.

Some upcoming games you might like are Scratches, Still Life,
and Nibiru.

The commercial market is not so generous to practitioners of this
seemingly lost art; however as with text adventure games a thriving
underground community of amateur graphical adventure enthusiasts is
emerging, producing oodles of their own games -- some of which are
actually worth playing -- and practically all of which are fully
available for free. Dig http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/ for more
information.

You can die in Black Mirror, dude.

As I found out when I grabbed the live cable - duh! And I KNEW you could
die.

People don't kill adventurers, STUPIDITY kills adventurers. And makes them
play large blocks of gametime over.

Sometimes, it's the stupidity of the game designer.

Yeah, that's generally the player. The manual does say "We recommend
that you save your game often!"

But, like I posted a while ago, would that scene really have been *less
fun* if the live cable merely knocked you on your ass?
