Announcing Where Birds Go to Sleep
In development by Quiet Little Feet, Where Birds Go to Sleep is an emotional narrative-driven adventure set in a fictional Near East-inspired land, brought to life in a painterly artstyle, with voice-acted dialogue and original score. Become the whisper in the subconscious of a sadistic criminal, on a gruelling church mission to chart new lands shrouded in a mind-altering fog. Contemplate on your actions; fail to justify them and you might find the protagonist not heeding your commands. Regret or rejoice, grieve or laugh together… or independently of each other. There will be consequences.
Announcement details pave the way for Open Roads
Road trip adventures have always held a certain appeal, but surely never more so than at a time when we’re all cooped up and itching to get out. Fortunately, it’s looking more and more likely that we’ll be able to do just that next year – not only physically, but virtually as well in the form of Open Roads, a new adventure from Fullbright, the creator of Gone Home and Tacoma.
Announcing The Darkside Detective Season 2 – A Fumble in the Dark
Twin Lakes is a cursed city. Less cursed than say, “Demons will tear it apart” but more cursed than “always loses its keys” or “often steps in puddles”. It’s roughly in the middle of the cursed scale, is what we’re trying to say. Cursed enough that it’s a nuisance. Cursed enough that somebody has to deal with it…

Enypnion becomes reality on Windows PC
No matter where we go in life, we’ll never travel anywhere stranger than the realms of our own imaginations. This proves to be true once again in the recently released Enypnion, a short new point-and-click adventure from the creator of Yet Another Hero Story.
The 90s were the golden era of adventure gaming. Companies like Lucas Arts and Sierra, culminated with unforgettable games and shaped what makes a good adventure game. And somewhere there, we meet Jane Jensen. She created one, if not THE one, of the best adventure game series of all time. The Gabriel Knight series. So, when she announced the development of a new game, after her departure from Sierra, the anticipation was very high. Here in Europe, it was released early 2011 and surprisingly, I wasn’t that much hyped to play it right away. But, when I decided to get my hands on it, I was blown away!! And I…

Rogue Quest: The Vault of the Lost Tyrant Review
The theme of treasure hunting is very popular among literature, films and games. Rogue Quest is not an exception, but it struggles to make it somewhat different. You play the role of Cassandra Nech, a member of the renowned Rogue’s Guild and you just discovered the treasure of the infamous Sea Tyrant, a past warlord. But, your mission has been compromised and you have to find a way to claim the riches and save yourself. Rogue Quest is a short game. And by short, I mean that the game took me about 30 – 40 minutes of gameplay, but since I wanted to get all the achievements on Steam (I’m…
