.flow lol [top]

This is one of the most well-known fangames of the original Yume Nikki made with RPG Maker 2000. It's one of the darker spin-offs infamous for its eerie atmosphere and copious amounts of body horror and hospital imagery, centering around a girl named Sabitsuki (さびつき) as she enters her PC dreamworld to explore her mind and collect effects. The main plot of the game is similar to the original Yume Nikki's, in that it's a sand-box game with very few exploration restrictions. You must collect the twenty-five effects to unlock two of the three endings and three boxes to achieve the third. You play as a girl named Sabitsuki who doesn't want to or is unable to leave her room. She has short white hair and a grayish blue top, a white skirt, and red shoes. Sabitsuki's bedroom is painted gray, with a TV and game console (through which you can play the mini-game Shinsouku Neko), a bookshelf, a bright orange rug, and, most notably, her bed and computer. You get in bed to save and access most of the gameplay by interacting with the computer. An interesting gameplay element is that there is a number of restricted areas that can only be accessed once all the effects have been collected and "dropped off" in Sabitsuki's PC. With effects stored there, the protagonist assumes her alter-ego, Rust, a seemingly more malevolent version of herself with a more pallid color scheme. If you choose to look closer, her eyes are, almost impossible to tell, a deep red. Rust cannot use any of the effects, but can surpass the barriers that blocked her original form and acquire three boxes in order to unlock a final and more substantial ending to the game, viewed often as the "true ending." In addition to these differences, Sabitsuki is pursued throughout the game by Kaibutsu, which, upon capture, transport her to an inescapable area in a manner similar to Toriningen, but upon becoming Rust, the chasers are replaced by Red Demons, a weaker but faster and much more abundant enemy. Rust can take several hits from these demons, and with each one her body begins to decay until finally, on one strike too many, she falls apart and is transported back to the real world.

15 Days House of Tales / ANACONDA, dtp Entertainment AG [top]

From the acclaimed German developer of Overclocked and The Moment of Silence comes this fast-paced and sophisticated adventure. Two weeks ago, political activists and talented art thieves Cathryn, Mike, and Bernard broke into a special exhibition in Cape Town, South Africa. From there, they purloined the portrait of Cecil Rhodes, former British Governor of Rhodesia. The next painting to steal is a portrait of Winston Churchill, located in the London Modern Museum. In the meantime, US special agent Jack Stern has a murder case to solve. British Foreign Secretary Henston collapsed at his desk and died the next day. A member of the British government, an assassination has to be considered. Agent Stern's attention is caught by a note about the transport of Rhodes' portrait from the Secretary's office and back. The next weeks will be a hard trial for the young thieves as well as agent Stern, entangling all four into affairs of international politics. Together with the conspiring gang, players will steal precious paintings using interesting gadgets. Their paths are destined to cross with Jack Stern regarding the obscure Henston murder. Do the anarchistic young thieves have something to do with the Secretary's death?

3 Cards to Midnight Big Finish Games [top]

This is a new project by Tex Murphy creators Aaron Conners and Chris Jones. The game features a female character in her late 20s who awakens in a room and doesn't remember how she got there. After relating the last thing she remembers, she is told that "a lot of things have happened since then." It is all very Twilight Zone-ish with a structure similar to The Usual Suspects movie in that the game's goal is to unlock flashbacks so that by the conclusion all of the missing pieces will have been filled in. The game unfolds over eight chapters with each chapter expected to take about an hour to complete. Each chapter features between 9-12 cut-scene flashbacks and also an intro and outro cinematic. There will also be multiple endings and levels of difficulty to add to the replayability. The focus will be on the cleverness of the story and the quality of the voice-acting. The gameplay exists to make the story work and not the other way around as is common in many games. This idea originated from the wonderful response to the Tex Murphy Radio Theatre where there was no gameplay or visuals, just the music and acting.

78641 GZ Storm / Vaippa Productions [top]

This is a free parody Esperanto-language adventure game where you are frying pan. Game modes are following: Sale mode, Jump Moon, Card Game, many more. You have to get as point as available. Frying pan Dougo Beaches crashes his car and is subsequently sent into the past. Randomly trying different things, finding the best outcomes and crashing your car repeatedly to restart time again in a very Groundhog Day-esque style is how the game goes. It's quite heavy in dialogue, but fortunately it's pretty hilarious in most parts (although maybe a little tasteless in others). Please be warned, rude conversations are plentiful and there's a few naughty pictures too. It's a baffling plot and bizzare game, but the humor and wit that suffuses everything make it a must play.

Adam's Venture: The Search for the Lost Garden Vertigo Games / Iceberg Interactive [top]

This is the first episode in the Adam's Venture series and introduces you to young explorer Adam Venture. Deciphering relics in an old Templar Church, Adam uncovers memoirs written long ago by a crusader who fought with Richard the Lionheart in the Holy Lands. The memoirs tell of a mysterious place with labyrinths of caves and grottos guarding the headwaters of four great rivers. Could this place be the legendary lost Garden of Eden? This discovery sets off a great adventure. Accompanied by Professor Jacques Saint Omair, his girlfriend Evelyn and his ever faithful dog, the team embarks on an epic adventure fraught with biblical mystery, intrigue and danger in their quest to find the legendary birth place of humanity. Soon after his discovery, Adam is approached by a large company, called Clairvaux Inc. They are willing to fund an expedition to search for Eden, mainly because they believe there are large amounts of gold located there. And so it comes to pass that they set out on a journey of a lifetime. Using the Unreal Engine 3, Adam's Venture brings a unique combination of action oriented gameplay with classic puzzle solving along with an involving storyline. Set during the 1920's, it takes you on an epic journey of discovery to find the legendary place of the beginning of mankind, the lost Garden of Eden. In 2012, a revised version was released on Steam with a big overhaul of better graphics and revamped/new puzzles.

Alabaster Emily Short [top]

This game presents a dark re-interpretation of the fairy tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (here called dwarrows), where the evil queen with the magic mirror is most likely a demon-possessed witch, her pale step(?)daughter likely also a witch or perhaps even a vampire, and even the loyal woodsman charged with executing her in the woods may be more than he seems. It is this last character controlled by the player, primarily navigating to one of the game's 18 different endings by traversing through a path of some of the game's 415 conversation fragments with Snow White as she awaits her fate at the player's hands. As with Short's earlier magnum opus Galatea, the most significant gameplay elements here are conversational in nature, the outcome of dialogue exchanges changing the moods of the characters and revealing new knowledge that informs the possible navigation and (minimal) inventory-manipulation options at the player's disposal. Extraordinary verbs furthering this unusual gameplay include TOPICS, which proposes conversational threads to pursue, and THINK, which tabulates the sum of the knowledge thus far achieved through the conversations completed. Upon game completion, the player can also invoke the ENDINGS command to reveal which game conclusions have thus far been achieved -- some of which require more knowledge (derived from more conversation) than others. A further feature of the game is its dynamic illustration engine, collaging picture elements automatically depending on the characters' moods.

Alchemia Springtail Studio / Lace Mamba Global [top]

Alchemia is an absolutely gorgeous animated point-and-click adventure where you play a little hero (the same one from previous game Haluz) after he shoots from the sky a bizarre looking creature. He sets off on an adventure to figure out what happened and to help his unfortunate new companion. Brilliant and imaginative puzzles, illustrations and music abound, and some puzzles will require lateral thinking and problem solving rather than just simply clicking in the right areas and in the correct sequence. An inventory is used for only a very few items, and you will have to drag an item from the inventory to where it belongs in the scene to progress. One cannot help but compare the work here to Samorost, with its surrealistic landscapes of photorealistic images and art as well as even some of the animations and techniques with which some of the scenes are reused. And yet even with all the similarities, there is enough here to appreciate on its own merits. An expanded version with five additional levels and nine new locations was released in retail on May, 2010.

Ao Oni noprops [top]

A group of teenagers enter an abandoned mansion on the outskirts of town to see if it’s haunted... an unimaginative set up for a horror tale, but thankfully it’s not indicative of the rest of the game. Released by a Japanese developer, Ao Oni has since gained a cult reputation for its inventive scares and challenging puzzles. Given that it’s made in RPGMaker XP, the game’s not Amnesia-levels of scary, but it squeezes a lot out of the aging engine to provide a suitably creepy backdrop for the puzzle-solving. Although each version differs heavily from the others, the objective is always the same. Locked in a mansion, you explore and solve puzzles while running from an enigmatic demon. The game has become a phenomenon, spawning hundreds of fan-games and spin offs. Each game adds its own characters and monsters to the ever-expanding Oni universe.

Back Door Man Grundislav Games [top]

This is an adventure game created for the TIGSource Adult/Edutainment competition. More of a visual novel than a regular adventure game, it offers three vignettes based on the stories a male escort tells a bartender about his work that evening. It involves a young lady, a male client and an older woman. As the stories are told, the player takes over the male escort's role and can take various decisions to influence the outcome. This is mostly centered around dialogue options, but at times he is also able to move around, steal objects or interact with them. The game offers re-playability as the chosen decisions lead to different outcomes for the individual stores, as well as the global ending. The game is controlled through the mouse, with the option to walk, interact, examine and talk. The game offers adult content, though in pixelized form. It will only take you around 5-10 minutes to reach the conclusion, but you'll want to play through it multiple times in the hope of receiving the 'good' ending.

Back to the Cubeture: Era 1 & 2 Edible Castle [top]

Era 1 Based on a series of flash cartoons, this is a shortish adventure that features our hero, Cuboy, the ultimate friend. When dastardly bad-guy type Esquire Padrino (gasp!) builds a time-warping device to destroy the world, he springs to the rescue! Only to wind up trapped back in the wild, wild west, where men are itchy and horses are square. Will Cuboy catch Padrino in time? Will he uncover the secrets of the desert? And more importantly, who's going to clean out all these spittoons?! If you get into a fight, you'll showdown wild west style... that is, waiting for the traffic light to flash DRAW so you can tap the [space] bar to shoot your foe before he shoots you. Draw too quickly, and you're a filthy cheater. But draw too late, and you'll have to try again, once you peel yourself off the bar. Era 2 (2012) feature sthe same excellent voice-acting, cheeky humor, and quirky art as its predecessor, but it's five times as long and offers a much more non-linear experience. This time you'll be rollicking through Cubathens, a sort of boxy Roman/Greek mish-mash. It features seven unique minigames, all of which can be played on their own from the main menu as well. Most of these are keyboard controlled, and range from a head-stomping gladiator platform battle, to jump-and-duck reflex tests, to... deity armpit hair munching.

Being One: Episodes 1-5 Psionic [top]

From the makers of Ghostscape come this free Flash game series that are one part point-and-click adventure, one part room escape, one part hidden object game but with a more concerted dedication to storytelling. Episode 1: Escape the Lab Your eyes open on a green tinted scene in a nightmare. As bubbles slowly meander upward through your field of vision, the details of a dark laboratory etch themselves into your consciousness from just beyond some sort of glass casing. After desperately flailing about with the unit's internal locks, the viscous green fluid that envelopes you suddenly drains away and your transparent prison no longer holds you captive. You find yourself aided by an unknown benefactor, set loose upon a place where strange experiments have been conducted on humans and some... things that are decidedly not human. Your goal is to escape the laboratory, possibly discovering details about your confinement, as well as the identity of your unnamed ally in the process. Episode 2: Bloodbath Panting and shaking as you finish your fight with the mechanoid, you lurch towards the exit. You still haven't made it out of the lab, merely to a higher level where the scientists at least haven't been experimenting on aliens but something else... Where Episode 1 was an exercise in quiet paranoia, Episode 2 is a jittery, nerve-ridden roller coaster ride that is deeper, darker and more blood-ridden. Episode 3: Dark Matter The emphasis here is on learning more of the back story while trying to logic your way past door locks, broken machinery, and surprisingly non-password protected computers. Episode 4: Moonrise There are door locks to solve, machinery that needs to be set, and objects that need to be collected and assembled. Find your way to the flight deck and hey, if you're really good, you might even be able to get off this hunk of rock before it pulls itself apart. This episode returns to lots of blood, gore, and killing. The fear factor has also returned with lots of strange noises, ominous ground shaking, creepy crawlies, and lots and lots of really insane graffiti. Episode 5: Infection (May/2012) It's a race against time to cure himself of the disease he's been infected with, battle the station's other inhabitants, and move one step closer to his revenge. But nothing is as it seems. You have tools at your disposal: a microscope for examining biological samples, an autohacker used to access terminals around the station, a multi-tool for disassembling mechanical devices, and, of course, a gun for use on any hostile creatures. These will often prompt minigames of all different kinds: shooter, arcade, puzzle, and so forth, all controlled with the mouse.

Black Mirror 2: Reigning Evil Cranberry Productions / ANACONDA [top]

This sequel, taken over by a new developer, takes place in the 1990's, twelve years after the original game. Solitary Darren meets the cute Angelina while he is working at the local photo shop of Biddeford, a small town in New England. Angelina also catches the eye of Darren's despotic, unpopular boss. To add to the mystery, there seems to be a third person interested in Angelina — Darren sees someone chasing her. He decides to investigate these incidents, and his research soon lead him to several locations, such as the small English village of Willow Creek that players will know from the first game. There, a museum dedicated to the murders from the first game was opened, the sanitarium was converted to a hotel, and they even added a funfair. Recently, however, business has dried up, and darkness is once again looming over the town. In addition to typical point-and-click, inventory-style adventure puzzles, there are other "minigames" which can be skipped if the player wants. In further attempts to alleviate player frustration, a "diary" has been added that automatically keeps track of what needs to be done next, as well as an autosave that triggers before you enter dangerous (possibly lethal) situations.

Blue Beanie, The Daphne Lim [top]

The unlikely hero of the story is a tiny, plump white woodland creature whose prized possession, a very dapper blue beanie, is stolen one day when he leaves it out to dry. Most of us would write it off as long gone, but our hero is not about to let it get away that easily. Despite his small stature, he's off to rescue his beloved beanie no matter what the odds, and what follows is one of the most charming games. For the most part, gameplay is straightforward pointing and clicking. Often, you have to figure out the correct order to click on objects to proceed, which requires a bit of trial and error since most of us have little experience being tiny woodland sprites. Occasionally, you'll also use the mouse to steer your little hero safely around obstacles, or to clear a path for him. The game never tells you exactly what you should be doing — although it does nudge you gently in the right direction if you pay attention — so a bit of patience and a lot of experimentation is required. Inspired by Samorost, it's presented with animated characters against beautiful painted or photographed backgrounds. Add in the music (by Mark Holdaway of Kalimba Magic), which has a Peter and the Wolf way of mimicking the action onscreen, and the entire experience is a sensory treat. Seasoned point-and-click gamers may find the story a little brief, but it's an experience that will delight anyone with a sense of whimsy and adventure.

Book of Unwritten Tales, The KING Art Games / HMH Interactive, The Adventure Company [top]

The first thing you notice when looking at this game are the excellent visuals. The scenes are packed with details and in a style that makes you wonder if you're dealing with cartoony 3D models or hand-drawn backgrounds. And as it turns out, the developer is using both of these techniques, meshing them so skillfully that the transitions are practically indiscernable. The way characters and other real-time rendered objects integrate into the environment is stunning as well. In a fantasy world ravaged by war, an elderly gremlin guards an artifact that can decide the fate of the world; an army of darkness trys to snatch it and crosses paths with three heroes, who stumbled into the adventure by accident earlier. By the time you find out that the artifact guardian is named Mortimer MacGuffin, it should have become clear that the story itself is not what the game is really all about. It's designed to be a parody taking place in the world of adventure, RPG and fantasy. If The Lord of The Rings, Indiana Jones or World of Warcraft mean anything to you, you will immediately appreciate the rich game world, with references, allusions, gags and self-irony lurking around every corner. Filled with weird characters and dark humour, it features four playable characters who must each use their different skills to solve various challenges, including some that can only be achieved by working together as a team. The protagonists include the little gnome Wilbur; the elf princess Ivo; a human adventurer named Nate; and The Critter, a shaggy creature that Nate adopted on one of his journeys and hasn't stopped trotting behind him ever since. Players can switch the controllable character at any time, and depending on which character is selected, the game even promises alternate solutions to certain puzzles. It includes more than 150 puzzles and approximately 200 different items to interact with, all within a semi-linear structure that allows players to solve various tasks in any order.

Cate West: The Velvet Keys Gamenauts Inc, Menara Games [top]

Cate West, a writer with psychic powers, is called by police investigators to use her gift in the mystery surrounding a series of murders. As she gets more involved in the case, strange things start to happen, revealing hidden truths about her past. Like its predecessor, it's a hidden object game with puzzles between each chapter. Most of the time, the objective is to find and click on all the items from a list at the left side of the screen, within a time limit. This time restriction can be turned off at the beginning, by selecting the relaxed mode. The locations represent physical places and visions from the main character. She has the unique ability to see the memories of the deceased, by touching any object that belonged to the person. Sometimes the screen is split in two similar images, and the goal is to place objects on both sides until they are identical. In some places, the objective is to complete the half-cut objects scattered around the screen, by dragging and dropping their other halves on them. While inside a memory scene from one of the victims, the bottom interface shows a series of riddles, and the player has to find their corresponding objects. Puzzles appear at the end of each chapter, as the activation trigger of an ancient device. They are mini-games that take place on a separate screen. Most are implementations of classic games, like concentration and sliding-tiles puzzles. In the sliding blocks puzzle, several pieces of stones have to dragged with the mouse, to clear the path for a key. In the circuit puzzle, a connecting cable has to be created between two electric points, by rotating pieces with a varying number of wire ends on their sides.

Cavern of the Evil Wizard, The Bomtoons [top]

In the popular 1988 movie Big, a kid wants to be an adult and his wish is granted though having an adult body and a kid's life experience causes problems. Tom Hanks plays him with an adult body and ends up falling in love with a lady friend and getting an awesome job at a toy company but still misses being a normal kid. In one of the early scenes of the movie, the kid is playing a graphic text adventure game on his computer called Cavern of the Evil Wizard, which was never a real game and only put together for the movie. The game is a metaphor for the events to come. The ice-melting puzzle is a metaphor for Josh being stuck in adolescence and how he wants to break free and become an adult. The Zoltar machine is his gateway into adulthood but is also a representation of childhood and innocence. In the end when Josh goes back to work on the puzzle and finds a way to melt the ice, he has learned that being a kid isn't so bad and the puzzle has been completed, therefore he can go back to being a child. This is a free but quite short browser adventure created by a fan to replicate the look of the game in the movie and for all to play online. If you see the movie, you'll figure out how to beat the game at the end.

Clue: Accusations and Alibis HitPoint Studios / RealArcade [top]

This is a "hidden object" adaptation of the classic board game. The objective remains the same as in the original: to find the murderer, crime weapon and room where the crime took place before time runs out. Each of the mansion rooms is a separate hidden object location, where the player must find all the items from a list at the bottom of the screen. The flashlight button highlights the position of one of the required items, but removes some minutes from the timer as a penalty. Any type of clock can be collected for 15 minutes of extra time. After clearing one of the rooms, a gossip screen appears to start a rumor about one of the suspects, weapons and rooms. The suspects drop clues about the case based on this rumor, and these hints are automatically stored in a log. Four tabs are available at the top of the screen: game map, checklist, evidence and hint log. The game map shows an overhead view of the mansion with all the rooms visible, where the player can choose where to go next after finishing with one of them. In the checklist, the player can mark the suspects, weapons and rooms to keep track of case developments. When a suspect reveals some crucial information ("the axe was not the murder weapon"), the game automatically crosses the item with a red X. The player can review the items found on each room in the evidence tab, including the coat check tickets showing what kind of clothing the suspects wear at the time of the murder. The last tab is the hint log, listing all the clues received so far in the game. The accusation screen comes up after investigating all the rooms, where the player has to make a final statement about who the murderer was, what weapon was used, and in which room the crime took place. The game can be replayed with new items on each room, with some of them showing other viewing angles.

Dark Tales: Edgar Allan Poe's Murders in the Rue Morgue ERS G-Studio / Big Fish Games, Inc [top]

In 19th century France, detective Auguste Dupin is summoned to Paris, called to investigate the brutal murder of Madame L'Espanaye and the kidnapping of her sister Camille. Along with his assistant, he must search for evidence and use his sharp mind and its powers of deduction to elucidate the case and find the culprit. This is a hidden object game based on Poe's influential short story published in 1841. The overall design follows the recent trend of combining seek-and-find gameplay with adventure elements. Like in the later entries of the Mystery Case Files series, the adventure and hidden object sections are clearly defined, with shimmering hotspots on the scenery indicating the presence of a separate hidden object screen on the location. The navigation and inventory usage follow the standards of the point-and-click adventure genre, where the player moves between the rooms by clicking on exit hotspots positioned over logical places, like doors and other openings, and use the collected items directly on the scenery. The inventory items are found scattered through the scenery, received after completing one of the hidden object screens or acquired after solving one of the puzzles. They are stored on slots at the bottom of the screen, from where they can be dragged and dropped on appropriate portions of the scene to perform an action or complete a task. Some puzzles take place on separate screens, where pieces or mechanisms have to be manipulated directly to solve them. A few are implementations of old concepts, like a jigsaw puzzle with pieces of a Paris map, a tile-sliding puzzle as the lock for a safe, and other similar challenges. Other puzzles require some sort of combination or code. The necessary clues can be found on the locations and are automatically entered on the assistant's notebook, accessible at any time from the bottom-right interface. The hint button highlights the position of one of the required objects, but takes some time to recharge after use. The Collector's Edition of Murders in the Rue Morgue includes the full original short story, exclusive scenes and inventory items, extra mini-games and hidden object screens, an integrated strategy guide, concept art, wallpapers, MP3 soundtrack, music sheets, a screensaver and a preview video for Black Cat, the next game in the series.

The tools are forensic equipment, like magnifying glasses, fingerprint powder and substance reagents. The hint button sitting at the bottom of the list highlights the position of one of the required items, but takes some time to recharge after use. In some scenes, the goal is to pick up all the pieces of a segmented object, then drag and drop it from the notepad to a logical part of the scenery to solve puzzles. For example, assembling all the broken shards of a smashed mirror to place them back to the frame. Some locations have special puzzles that take place on a separate screen, shimmering on parts of the scenery to indicate their presence. These puzzles are self-contained mini-games, with jigsaw puzzles, matching fingerprints to suspects, arranging cards in logical sequences and similar challenges. At the end of each investigation, the player has to find the culprit from three suspects, by reading the testimony clues of nine witnesses and using this information to mark three cards with false or positive answers to the three theory questions. The guilty card has to match the theory answers, shown at the top of the screen with characteristics of the criminal, like favorite color, other personal tastes and life history.

Downfall Harvester Games / Remigiusz Michalski [top]

Downfall is a horror adventure game created with Chris Jones' AGS engine, featuring hand-drawn background art and original soundtrack by Remigiusz and Michal Michalski. The story is about a couple who decides to stay the night in an old hotel before resuming their journey home the next day, although things start to turn weird when you wake up the next morning to discover your partner missing without a clue of her current whereabouts. Normally this shouldn't bother anyone but after an argument that Joe (the main character) and Ivy (your partner) have had before retiring to bed, it is now your responsibility to find her just to make sure that everything is fine. Searching the hotel you will begin to realize that it houses a couple of dark secrets no one should ever discover, but to save Ivy you must leave no stone unturned, even when rational thought is telling you to turn tail and flee from the hotel as quickly as you can. The game boasts a simple GUI interface that does away with complicated verb text, with all inventory items accessible by moving the pointer towards the top half of the screen. Examining or interacting with objects and characters require only a click of the left or right mouse button, while all conversation choices that Joe could say to another person are presented in a list at the bottom of the window. Most puzzles require figuring out which item should be used to overcome a specific problem or obstacle, and thankfully there are no combination code, colour, symbol or sliding tile puzzles to be found anywhere in the game. It should be noted that Downfall features a lot of violence, gore, graphic scenes, strong language and even some nudity.

Drawn: The Painted Tower Big Fish Games [top]

This is a simply gorgeous PC puzzle adventure game available for digital download for $6.99. In a bleak world, legend tells of a child queen who will one day rise to give hope to a world filled with despair. In Drawn, you must unlock riddles and solve puzzles as you work your way to the top of The Painted Tower in order to save the young girl who would be queen. A tyrannical king's closest advisor and sorcerer has foretold of a gifted child who will be his undoing!

Years later, the king discovers the girl and places an evil spell on the tower. Help her escape his grasp and fulfill her destiny. There's a contrast between the dreary, hopeless "real" world with the rich worlds of paintings born of imagination. The higher you go in the tower, the more the rules are thrown out, from giant statues of snails to rooms in a stone griffon's mouth. The Painted Tower is the first installment in the Drawn story and promises to be an amazing gaming experience.

Dream Chronicles 3: The Chosen Child KatGames / PlayFirst, Inc. [top]

A woman lives in a tree-house, without any recollection of who she is and how she ended up there. When asleep, she suffers recurring dreams showing a man holding a little girl, that she feels are her husband and daughter. After getting a distress message from a crystal ball, showing an image of the same man of her dreams, she starts a quest to recollect her memories and find her lost family. This is the third installment of the adventure and hidden object game series. The interface has the classic slide-show presentation inaugurated by the venerable Myst, showing mostly static scenes where the player moves from screen to screen by clicking on exit hotspots, usually placed over doors and other entrances. Each room has several objects laying around, that are stored in the inventory after being collected with the mouse. When the cursor hovers over a part of the scenery with a place or object, their names appear next to it and the bottom interface displays a brief description. A journal at the bottom-right registers all the main events, and lists some of the main objects. The game takes place in a magical land, with portals leading to distant places. They are accessed inside the nexus, a giant machine that acts as a hub with several portals aligned. They are activated with dream jewels, small pieces of jewelry found laying around (or later, cast in the forge), that have to be set with three colored gems, also scattered in the scenery. The activation mechanism is a puzzle, where two dream jewels have to be inserted and turned to mix their colors and reproduce the pattern above the portal. Most puzzles can be solved using inventory items in a logical way, by dragging and dropping them over parts of the scenery. Some puzzles are mechanisms that have to be manipulated directly, like the door lock with alchemy symbols near the forge. Some books contain puzzles on their pages, where words have to unscrambled to complete a text with clues.

Elle et moi Paranoia Team / ENJMIN [top]

This is a first-year student project developed for PC in 3 months, with the constraint of having to be experienced fully in under 10 minutes. It's about a girl, Mégane, from the moment she regains consciousness in the bathroom of her apartment. It is up to the player to explore the different rooms and find out what has happened. The player can move the girl around and interact through various instances. There is however not always direct control. The player acts largely as Mégane's conscience and gets various options at the different moments of interaction. An important part of the gameplay only becomes available after manually turning the camera away, where the player is shut out (only visually) of the events and Mégane is obscured out of view. Through the various clues scattered around, Mégane will constantly drift between awareness and panic attacks. These are visualized through her gestures, sound, and also visually as colors desaturate. In a panicked state, certain actions only appear briefly, Mégane does not always respond to your commands, and the camera can no longer be fully controlled. It is possible to follow a certain course to heighten her anxiety or restore the natural order. Based on the player's choices there are different outcomes to the game and to discover them all it needs to be replayed multiple times. The team is currently developing their own in-house engine to make a new full-length release that will be with redone graphics scheduled for 2012.

Emerald City Confidential Wadjet Eye Games / PlayFirst [top]

The magical land of Oz, as written by L. Frank Baum and visualized by MGM, is put through the gritty filter of 1940s film noir. Harsh city streets, grey rainy skies, femmes fatales, tough guys, trenchcoats, fedoras and plot twists. It's Oz, seen through the eyes of Raymond Chandler. You are Petra. Emerald City's only private detective. One dark night, she is approached by a strange woman named Dee Gale. It appears Dee's fiancé is missing, and Dee is willing to pay high and above the going rate in order to find him. Lacking any other prospects, Petra agrees. What starts off as a simple missing person case soon takes Petra deep into the seedy underbelly of the Emerald City's criminal underground and beyond. She will encounter many characters both familiar and new, learn several magic spells, and uncover the answer to a dark secret that has haunted Petra all her life. It features: over 40 hand-drawn 2D backgrounds, over 6,500 lines of spoken dialog for 35 characters, and a story that takes place over 5 chapters.

Enter The Story 2: The Divine Comedy Chris Tolworthy [top]

The second installment of the Enter the Story series is Dante's The Divine Comedy, which tells the story of the poet Dante's journey through hell (the famous "Dante's Inferno"), then through purgatory, and finally through the ten heavens until he reaches the abode of God. The word "comedy" is in the old sense of "a story that begins sad and ends happy". You also find out what happens to Jean Valjean and inspector Javert after their death from Les Miserables. And you learn more about Peri and The Great Plan. Enter The Story always follows the original story, chapter by chapter, but is more concerned with the ideas behind the story. And so, just as Dante reflected the cosmological beliefs that had evolved up to the year 1300, so the game keeps these but also brings them in harmony with a more modern understanding, and speculates even further. And just as Dante included many historical and contemporary figures, the game keeps these characters and also adds a few others from later centuries and our own day. Just as the the poem ends with the word 'stars' so the book ends with the beginning of the next game - a journey to the stars and beyond.

Enter The Story: Les Miserables Chris Tolworthy [top]

One of the most enduring literary tales is Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, and at long last the classic French novel is coming to PC. An independent production begun by Tolworthy ten years ago, Les Misérables marks the first interactive novel in a planned series called Enter the Story. Though the developer refers to it as "more like a book than a game", it most closely resembles a "classic 'point and click' adventure game, with some refinements. Gameplay is simple: you explore, you listen, or you suggest." With its unique minimalist art style and faithful adaptation of the original story, Les Misérables invites players into the world of 19th century Paris, focusing largely on ex-convict Jean Valjean as he seeks redemption from his past. The game is available for purchase and download directly from the official website for $14.99, and an optional plain CD version is available for $10 more. The purchase price includes all the next installments of Enter the Story. You can also buy one installment alone for $7.99. In July/2010 this first episode was released for free as promotion for the series with the release of the 4th installment.

Everybody Dies Jim Munroe [top]

This game chops up time and narrative perspective to present to the player a tale of four Rouge River Cost Cutters employees of different backgrounds, one who dies on the job due to an accident (Graham), another of whom (Ranni) is killed (multiple times!) by a third (Patrick)... and a fourth (Lisa), whose time-traveling task it is to prevent the deaths from ever occurring and call the bluff of the game's name. The player episodically directs the actions of not only that last individual, but also the two deceased co-workers, both before and after they die... though understandably their ability to enact change from beyond the grave is somewhat limited.

Fatale Tale of Tales [top]

From the makers of the experimental games The Graveyard and The Path comes this interactive vignette in realtime 3D inspired by the story of Salome. Explore a living tableau filled with references to the legendary tale and enjoy the moonlit serenity of a fatal night in the orient. Fatale offers an experimental play experience that stimulates the imagination and encourages multiple interpretations and personal associations. Salome is a first century Judean princess mentioned in the Christian Bible by Matthew and by Mark. But it is Oscar Wilde's 19th century play "Salome" that really inspired Fatale. In the Bible, Salome is a child who dances for King Herod and asks the head of John the Baptist as a reward. In Wilde's version, Salome falls in love with the prophet. He rejects her and she has him executed. The play ends with her kissing the lips of his decapitated head. Most of Fatale takes place in the aftermath of this event, when all has turned quiet and the moon brings comfort to troubled hearts.

Featherweight Ben304 [top]

In the fight against the machines, featherweights play a minor role - scouting, recon and spying. Considered as mere data collectors rather than true warriors, they're untrained in combat and ill equipped for any encounters with the enemy. However, when Thadd, a young featherweight, sees a fellow featherweight captured by the enemy and taken to their base, he decides that he will sneak into their compound and help her escape - even if he has to do it all by himself. While little backstory is revealed, the game gives a sense of a greater story to be told; unfortunately, some of the puzzles in the game seem downright strange and counter-productive. Compounding this, other inventory items seem just as useful to a purpose as others, making many of the solutions seem hit or miss. Still, if you can look past some odd puzzles you'll find a lot to like in Featherweight.

Freewill Cycle, The Vol.1-2 William Buchanan [top]

This planned trilogy of free Flash escape the room adventures is reminiscent of the genre classic, Myst. You will have to examine everything, take anything that's not nailed down, and go everywhere. Volume 1 You awake in a room where all you can see out of the windows are pretty, pretty moving lights. You notice that the ominously pulsating glow has breached the room next to the one you started in. Should you walk into the light? On second thought, not a good idea. Perhaps you should explore a little more. The cursor turns into an arrow to let you know where you can go, or it turns into a hand when you encounter something you can touch, move, or take. Finding your way around is fairly easy; figuring out what needs to be done? Not so much. Take your time, look around, pry into other people's private e-mail, and slowly a pattern emerges. How good are you at reproducing lab experiments and repairing potentially radioactive machinery? As you explore the story unfolds, giving, in a few short clues, a vivid account of what may have happened and the personalities of the people involved. Who, by the way, are mysteriously missing. A Redux Edition (July/2012) Old puzzles have been modified and new ones added. There are also additional user features such as "save" and "mute" buttons, as well as text labels of items and interactive areas, if you select "Casual Experience" mode before beginning the game. Even so, the "Director's intent" mode—played with lights out and headphones on—is recommended for maximal immersion! Volume 2 (Oct/2012) Explore the currently-deserted office building, solving puzzles and viewing documents to bring you closer to the completion of your mission. The plot is effectively shown rather than told, with new wrinkles doled out at a measured pace, coming together to form a complex and satisfying sci-fi yarn. You approach a fully realized world as an outsider, breaking into not just the work-space of those employed by Verified Technologies, but also their troubled personal relationships.

Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island Autumn Moon Entertainment / ANACONDA [top]

From the makers of A Vampyre Story comes this colorful pirate adventure. There are three protagonists in the game: Papa Doc, a "vooju" (essentially, voodoo + bad juju = vooju) priest; Jane Starling, a comely female pirate; and Blue Belly, the bashful ship's cook. The story begins when Papa Doc's ex-wife, a powerful vooju priestess, levels a curse down on our heroes, separating their spirits from their bodies. Now they must work together to recover their remains and figure out a way to re-inhabit them. At any time, each of the three characters will be working individually on a task, and the player will be able to switch back and forth between them. As ghosts, they possess the ability to communicate with one another over long distances, so if Blue Belly finds an inventory item he can't figure out what to do with, he can instantly ask Papa Doc or Jane for advice. But you're invisible and inaudible, so forget asking living creatures for help or information, and if somebody doesn't want you snooping around, they need only lay out a border of salt and you won't be able to cross it. Additionally, ghosts can only manipulate small, light objects. Instead of going on a fetch quest to get someone to help you, instead you'll need to slyly manipulate the environment to entice that person to want to help you—though they don't even know you exist.

Green Moon Absolutist [top]

This is a point-and-click adventure that's traditional in some ways and stunningly original in others. In this game your goal is not to solve a mystery or go on a journey, but instead to complete a cycle of magic spells that's thousands of years old. Your quest will take you throughout time and ultimately to Earth's moon. You are in a house that has been abandoned for some time, but you seem to be its new owner. Exploring the house reveals strange objects, quirky clues written on scraps of paper, and hidden keys. Once you can get into your house's basement, you'll find out it was previously inhabited by a magic-user that passed away before finishing his (or her) life's work. Now you have the magic book he or she left behind, giving you the opportunity to master great magic powers. You progress by gathering up objects and using them at the correct time. You may need to bribe NPCs with them, combine them, or brew them together into potions. Beware, you can die abruptly. But, the main challenge that faces you is keeping track of all the items you'll need to complete your various tasks, since you don't have enough inventory space to just carry everything around. Your magic book contains 12 tasks and you must complete them in order. You can gather up required objects in any order, but it's hard to get ahead of yourself.

Gretel and Hansel Mako Pudding [top]

This is an episodic adventure series based on the classic fairly tale Hansel and Gretel, popularized by the Brothers Grimm. Part One: Stones (Oct/2009) - tells how Gretel and Hansel's parents decide that in order to preserve food, they need to leave the children behind in the forest. Gretel overhears the conversation and needs to collect ten pebbles she can leave behind to find back the route when they are in the forest. It ends when the two children wake up abandoned in the forest. This adaptation is not a linear recreation and introduces a number of twists. Using digitized watercolor paintings for the graphics, there are many humorous actions and ten different gruesome deaths for the children to experience. Players only control Gretel. She can be moved around using the keyboard and the left mouse button is used for actions. She carries a slingshot used to interact with the environment and collected items are stored in a knapsack, which acts as an inventory. When walking around a hint balloon often pops up to indicate that Gretel can perform an action there. Her first task is to find a way to leave the room and venture outside before her parents wake up. She can explore the surroundings of the house, including a well and an area guarded by a giant spider. When dying the game continues right away from the last section. There is no spoken conversation during the game. Instead the characters talk through speech balloons with animated images of the conversation (similar to Machinarium), complemented with some humming that reveals the tone of the speech. The game is generally designed as a point-and-click adventure, but the route to the forest is completely different. It is presented as a mini-game where quick reflexes are needed to prevent Gretel from getting mauled under the cart of her mother, while she needs to jump to avoid obstacles, leave behind pebbles and scare off the bird that tries to drag away Hansel. The Newgrounds version of the game has in-game medals. Part 2 (Oct/2010) - It isn't long before they're separated as well. Much longer than the first chapter, with more puzzles to solve and more areas to explore. Early on Gretel picks up a quaint Littlest Hobo-esque kerchief on a stick that she uses to carry the items she gathers, and you can open it by clicking on it and dragging items out to use them. Whenever you can interact with something, a cartoon bubble depicting an action appears above it when you get close enough. While your first objective is to reunite with Gretel's brother, it will quickly become apparent that you'll also want to find a way out of this forest which is filled with all manner of terrible waiting to happen to our intrepid heroine.

Haerfest NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences [top]

Hærfest is a freeware student project focused on the exploration of a 3D world using a first-person perspective. It casts the player in the form of a bat, a flying little hero who sets out on the classic journey of rescuing a maiden: a human girl. The story behind their bond, why the girl is gone and what the strange creatures inhabiting the world are, is revealed gradually through fragments of her diary that are scattered around and cut-scenes presented as pages with drawings in a book. As a bat, players can fly around using the mouse and a single key to flap the wings. By timing it right, it is possible to get a steady rhythm and explore the world in glide flight. As a feeble creature, every contact with an object, a tree or another creature costs health, so careful navigation is required. Damage, shown as a glowing red edge around the screen, can be restored by staying away from danger for a while. The game consists of three large, connected levels. It starts inside a house and that part acts largely as a tutorial to get familiar with the controls. The second level is the largest one, with an extensive forest that can be explored freely in all directions, with an atmosphere and scattered landmarks somewhat reminiscent of The Path. The third and final level offers another wide area, but serves mainly for the final confrontation to rescue the maiden. The bat has no real means of attack or defence. The only main action is Sonic Screech, a sonar sound shown visually as a wave that lights up objects in the environment using shades of pink and purple to reveal their position. This is mandatory to explore the very dark environment, but can also be used to temporarily scare away other animals. During his journey the little hero meets spirits he needs to convince to help him. They provide him with different abilities, such as a stronger sonic screech and a speed boost. Performing these requires energy that can be restored by eating moths. The amount of available energy storage can be increased by catching lumoths. Much of the game is spent exploring the environment in flight. The forest is very dark and the player can discover many areas that hold clues. Places where moths gather are shown with a blue outline. There is however no time to explore at a relaxing pace. Similar to the werewolf in Ecstatica there is the constant threat of a much more powerful and undefeatable hunter who constantly chases the player. The presence of the owl is shown with hues of red and there are only few places in the forest where the little bat can be left alone for a while, with the addition of some other enemies. The owl can be scared off with sonic screech for a few seconds, but there are also a number of traps, highlighted in green, where it can temporarily get stuck when the bat lures it there.

Heaven Genesis Works [top]

There are two main characters: Joshua – an astronaut on a special mission whose ship lands on the shores of Heaven after being damaged by asteroids and Axis – the Barbie doll woman everyone has been wondering about. Axis was actually born with a paralyzing disease that robbed her of the use of her legs. Her faith in Jesus healed her and she lived to a ripe, old age before going to Heaven. Rounding out the cast are kings, angels, creatures and, of course, Jesus. The game has six levels all presented in a 360-degree panning 3D world. The in-game graphics are quite stunning. It's in the same vein as classic adventure games like Myst. All of the creatures and locations are based on actual biblical descriptions of Heaven. The game follows a character by the name of Joshua who is on a space mission to investigate strange happenings on one of Jupiter's moons, when his ship is damaged while flying through an asteroid field. He awakes to find himself in Heaven where he's guided by an angelic-looking woman to the very throne of God.

Hidden Expedition: Devil's Triangle Big Fish Games [top]

A scientific organization called H.E.A.T. (Hidden Expedition Adventure Team) sends the experimental submarine Sea-Hawk, powered by a revolutionary device called Bio-Coil, to the famous Bermuda Triangle in search of a lost pilot. As the submarine approaches the mysterious region, pirates suddenly appear and start to board the vessel to steal the precious power source. The crew is forced to evacuate on emergency escape pods, landing on the beach of a strange island with exotic buildings and bizarre inhabitants. This is the fourth entry in the hidden object game series produced by Big Fish Games since 2006. As in most recent titles of the genre, the adventure elements are more pronounced with full inventory and puzzles complementing the simple hidden object scenes. Like in most first-person point-and-click adventures, the player navigates through various locations by clicking on hotspots positioned over obvious exit openings, like doors and other places. The rooms are presented as a series of static screens with interactive portions. The cursor is context-sensitive, changing shape when hovering over an interactive part of the scenery. It morphs into an eye when over a place with a close-up view, that sometimes contains a hidden object scene or a mini-game. It transforms into golden arrows when over one of the exit hotspots. It becomes a hand when over a scenery object that can be collected. It displays swirling blue circles over special areas where an inventory item can be used. Some of the locations double as hidden object and adventure screens. On the hidden object sections, the goal is to find and click on all the items listed at the bottom of the screen. The list entries can be clicked to show the object silhouette on a small round window at the bottom-right. Some of the objects are stored in the inventory, that can be accessed by clicking on a button above the list, using the same area to show its contents. The inventory tools can be dragged and dropped on places of the scenery to solve puzzles or perform actions. The hint button shows the position of one of the required items, with a number of uses available at the start of each chapter. After spending all the hints, the player has to wait while the heliometer refills to receive another one. Mini-games take place on separate screens, where the objective is to manipulate some mechanism to solve a puzzle. A log book automatically keeps track of progress, with entries listing character profiles, objectives and clues.

Host Master 1-2 Double Fine [top]


Host Master and the Conquest of Humor This is a retro point and click game in the style of early LucasArts adventures done in Flash. And by "in the style of", I mean "constantly making jokes about". Even the very first screen is a reference to the days of DOS, and the user interface is a deliberately clunky riff on classic adventure game awkwardness. In fact, the whole game is a tribute to Double Fine president Tim Schafer, who helped set the standard for game humor in 1990 with The Secret of Monkey Island, and kept the streak going over the years with cult favorites Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango, and Psychonauts. You take the role of Schafer, backstage at the 2009 Game Developers Conference, completely unprepared to host the event. (In the real world, the real Tim Schafer is in fact hosting at this year's GDC. Host Master and the Conquest of Humor has so many layers of self-reference, it threatens to collapse in on itself, taking the whole conference and possibly the universe with it.) Your goal is to scour the area, collecting as many of the 22 jokes as possible before you finally walk on stage. The more jokes you find, the better the evening goes. Host Master Deux: Quest for Identity (2013) Though he learned from his previous mistakes and arrived to host the Game Developer's Conference prepared, Double Fine's Tim Schafer never expected to have to prove he really is, y'know, Tim Schafer, to a giant of a security guard who won't let him onstage. Created by Benedikt Hummel and Marius Fietzek, Tim's got to track down everything he needs to convince the burly gatekeeper he's the one and only. He'll need a Schafer-like beard, more Schafer-ly attire, and some classic Schafer-esque jokes, but rounding all of that up is going to be anything but straightforward. Or sane. Though drastically different in style, it's definitely no less funny, albeit in a more surreal way. The art and animation are adorable, with a funky and fitting (though somewhat repetitive) soundtrack by Major Bueno.

Island Adventure Joe Townsend [top]

Benji Rosenbloom is your average Joe on a plane journey minding his own business. However, his confidence in the safety of air travel is suddenly challenged when his plane crash lands on an island in the middle of nowhere and he finds himself to be the sole survivor. Initially disoriented, Benji soon befriends a young woman named Lola, one of a group of survivors of a shipwreck that occurred on the island some number of years before who have now come to make the island their home and learned to live at peace with a group of island natives. This puts you in the shoes of Benji, who, with Lola's help, must learn to integrate with both the Shipwreck survivors and the natives, while in the meantime search for a way home, avoid a band of incompetent pirates attempting to bully the island's people, and discover a series of bizarre truths about the island. is a comedy game that I developed for about two and a half years before I moved to Japan. It is a point and click adventure game, like the Monkey Island series, in which the player must interact with people and objects in the game environment to solve a series of puzzles in order to progress the story. Inspirations for this game mostly came from the Monkey island games, the TV series Lost, and many other pieces of desert island fiction. One of the main aims in making this game was to explore how a story about crash survivors on a bizarre island could develop without the supernatural elements present in Lost, while at the same time creating a satire of the desert island genre in general.

Jack Toresal and The Secret Letter Michael Gentry and David A. Cornelson / Textfyre [top]

The author of the stunning, large-scale, Lovecraftian interactive fiction Anchorhead, has another full-scale IF, his first since that award-winning game came out in 1998. Dave Cornelson, who founded the Speed IF competitions and the IFWiki, has led his interactive fiction company, Textfyre, to publish its first game for $25. The interface offers a book-like framework for the IF session and allows the player to flip ahead to a map or back to previous sections of the transcript. The illustrations were done by Erika Swanson. This is the first episode in a series set in Miradania - a fictional kingdom in an approximately mediaeval, English like land. Toresal is the town, and the protagonist is an adolescent street urchin named Jack. Jack lives in an orphanage and seems to pass the days causing trouble in the town market. As the story begins, some mercenaries come looking for Jack. Why are they going to such trouble and expense for a nobody like Jack? To find the answer, Jack must learn about the politics of Toresal and Miradania and not get caught (or worse!) during the investigation. The political struggles of the day have a surprising connection to an orphan's dead parents.

Judith Terry Cavanagh, Stephen Lavelle [top]

Just like Pathways, Judith is an experiment in storytelling about secrets and control, through a world shown from a first-person perspective and graphics from the era of Wolfenstein 3D. With parallels to the classic story of Bluebeard, it tells the tale of Jeff and Emily, married, but not to each other, who meet secretly in an abandoned building. As soon as they enter the building, Emily disappears and the player needs to guide Jeff to find her back. The game is divided into two different stories, and the parts are played alternately, along with a third storyline presented as a dream. As the player discovers the different rooms, parallels between the three stories, past and present, become apparent. To show what character is controlled and talking, the colour of the text lines is changed. There are minor puzzles to solve, but the game is very straightforward. At times, control is taken over for in-game cutscenes, usually to further the story. The character is moved through the arrow keys with the space bar for all actions.

Author wrote: "... in the Youth House where I work, I have been organizing a short course / workshop for an adventure game (with Wintermute). Nobody expects a marvel: As a collective creation workshop, story and puzzles have been identified through brainstorming by workshop attendees, most of whom were boys of 13 who wanted to put references to "tío de la vara" everywhere. Graphics are photos from Google and characters are the girl "Molly" and "oldguy" that appear in the sample projects of Wintermute. As it's something that is being done in three weeks or so, we can not ask for too much invention. But honestly, I think in the end it may prove something pretty decent. Created in the workshop building of la Casa de Juventud "María Vicuña" de Estella.

The darkness continues amidst the treasures from the gypsy's lair, as a mysterious book is found in the tiny town of Shadowcrest. Perhaps a book that should never have been opened. A book with pages that chart the passage to the Isle of the Dead. Shrouded among fog and lore, legends of the the Island speak of the strange ghosts that live there and the creatures of the dead hiding in the shadows; feeding on sailors foolish enough to beach upon the dark shores. Although stories of great treasure surround the island, it is also rumored that the isle holds the origin for a great darkness inside an ancient temple built centuries ago. Once again your experience in the dark arts and science may be useful to uncover the true origin of the last half of darkness.

If the devil gave the possibility to make decisions to a man, let him be the origin of all evil in man's deeds, let him take the blame, not the stupid man that does as his lowest urges and desires command him to. This is an unique combination of a 3D adventure and "classic" dungeon crawler. It's a dark story about an innkeeper, beer and the devil that takes place in the medieval Czech town of Jilemnice. There's poetic dialogues, wise words, bargaining, furious fights... but no saving the world and no heroics. It's an RPG without magic, elves and hobbits.

This is an all new sophomoric comedy adventure featuring Larry Laffer's nephew, Larry, looking for action (or love) on the back-lot of Laffer Studios, deep in the heart of Tinseltown. A rollicking, innuendo-laden lampoon of Hollywood, Leisure Suit Larry features exploration, platforming, racing and puzzle-solving as well as an all-new Director's Game, where the player becomes the director of their own "Larry Feature".

True to the franchise, Leisure Suit Larry will feature gorgeous babes that, as usual, are out of Larry's league. The open world sand box gameplay includes exploration, platforming, racing and puzzle-solving as well as an all-new Director's Game, where the player becomes the director of his/her own "Larry Feature".

Lights Neutral [top]

The developer, Neutral, is responsible for such gems as Sphere, Vision, and other classics of the Escape the Room genre. It has warm, inviting 3D environments, clever puzzles that don't rely on excessive pixel hunting or bizarre leaps in space-logic, and even Full Motion Video footage of an adorable Papillon. As usual, the player is placed in a room full of puzzles and challenged to escape. Although some games in this genre are located in exotic or unusual places like an alien spaceship or a fairytale castle, this one simply takes place in a living room. But it's a living room filled with nooks, crannies, and interesting devices. The game is very fair—no pixel-hunting, and hot-spots are where you expect them to be. You should definitely examine objects from every angle, though—try to look behind them or at hidden angles. The inventory works very smoothly (it even indicates objects as "new" to remind you which you haven't examined closely yet.) Keep in mind that objects may themselves conceal secrets or be combined or manipulated in the close-up screens. The soundtrack is minimal, although it does use sound to indicate when a discovery has been made. There is also a handy save function which is a good addition—although a game genius (or someone with no compunction about walkthroughs) might solve it in one sitting, many will want to walk away and think to return with a different perspective. And this game has a puppy! How can you not like an escape game with a puppy!

Little Wheel One Click Dog [top]

Little Wheel is the story of a world of self-sufficient robots. Everything runs like clockwork until one day when a mishap at the power core shuts down the entire civilization. After ten thousand years of rusting, a chance lightning strike restores power to one small hero, who sets out to start everything back up again. There's no hunting for pixels or hot-spots, as things you can interact with are highlighted by a gray circle. Instead of collecting seemingly random items and rubbing them against everything to see if it advances the story, most puzzles in the game are solved simply by choosing to click these interactive areas in their correct order. As such, it takes a lot of the thinking out of what would otherwise be some really difficult puzzles. Click on something and Little Wheel will putter off to investigate, and watching its actions will give you clues as to the order in which you should proceed. The journey isn't a long one, but it's a delight to see what new obstacle your little mechanical buddy has to tackle next. Little Wheel's simple palette of sepia and black is still able to produce a remarkably detailed silhouette world. Structures and characters are rendered with loving detail, down to every winch and switch, and animated with just as much care. The only real complaint with it is how short and relatively easy it is.

McCarthy Chronicles, The Calin Leafshade [top]

This free AGS created game is a film-noir inspired, supernatural detective story. Rick McCarthy is a private detective marred by a secretive and destructive past. He is pulled into a world of blood sacrifice and invocation. Can he hide his past, solve the crime and get the girl? This is a very dark, depressing and story driven game. Very well acted and production values are high, although the game lacks substance when you remove all the dialogue, which lowers its rating. This is a very impressive first game and a great start to a series. If you are looking for a very atmospheric, visual, story driven game then this perfect for you, if you are looking for a challenge then look elsewhere. It won four AGS awards for 2009: best main character, best sound effects, best vocal voice, and best animation.

Mishap: An Accidental Haunting Virtual Prophecy Entertainment / Namco Networks America Inc. [top]

Kelly and Brock Burton are a young couple that moved to a house haunted by ghosts. As they pack up and run in terror from the place, they meet Milton Hobblepop, a paranormal investigator for hire. They ask him to get rid of the wraiths, using his many gadgets to detect and capture the souls on each room of the place. This is the winner of 2009's best hidden object game by JayIsGames site. The main goal is to find and click on all the items listed at the bottom of the screen on the many haunted rooms of the house. Each chapter starts on a central location, that has to be scrolled horizontally to show its full extent and all its scattered objects. Several doors and other openings give access to other rooms, each with a separate list of objects and ghosts to be found. The hint button highlights the position of one of the list items, requiring four items to be collected after use to fully recharge. Instead of the static scenes common to the genre, the screens are filled with little animations showing possessed objects moving and jumping around. Besides finding all the list entries, the player has to exorcise all the ghosts hiding on each room, by using the special monocle besides the list. When activated, the monocle becomes the cursor and covers the screen with a green filter, replacing the list with a meter showing how close the cursor is to the hiding entity. Each soul has to be found and clicked three times to be exorcised. The biographies of exorcised ghosts are added to a list with details about their former lives. At the end of each chapter, the player has to find an extra place by deciphering a rebus puzzle, where words are combined with pictures of collected objects to complete a clue about the secret area. Afterwards, the final challenge is to complete three rounds of an arcade mini-game based on the personality of the main ghost. In the bedroom chapter, the objective is to snap photos of a bloated B-movie actress every time she suddenly materializes on the corners of the central room. Extra points are awarded for head shots. Later rounds add a rival starlet that keeps appearing to distract the player and induct wrong clicks. In the kitchen area, the mini-game is a cooking challenge, where a recipe has to be prepared for the ghost of a failed chef.

Most Romantic Tales: Romeo and Juliet Baby Eish Games [top]

When it comes to romantic stories, William Shakespeare's tale of two star-crossed lovers from the houses of Montague and Capulet is one of the classics. This "visual novel" is designed to introduce more people to the story by presenting a line by line translation of Shakespeare's original play into contemporary, colloquial American English. Gameplay is presented as an interactive novel. As you play, you'll be asked to choose from a variety of different dialogue options that can affect the storyline while still keeping true to the original. In the opening scene, for example, do you choose to try to break up the fight between the servants of Capulet and Montague, or just stand back and watch? When the fiery Tybalt arrives on the scene, do you try to calm him down, or draw your sword and egg him on? You can choose to follow the original storyline, or choose a happy ending. In between acts, you'll complete a variety of jigsaw puzzles of images taken from the scenes in the game. Most Romantic Stories will include an illustrated text file of Shakespeare's original prose as well, for comparison purposes or just for the user's reference.

Murran Chronicles Weggieware Games [top]

These episodic games are made with the AGS by Chris Jones and are graphical point-and-click type adventure games similar to the old Sierra and LucasArts games of the 80s and 90s. The games are all free to download and play. The primary inspirations for these games are the truly excellent Ben Jordan series by Francisco Gonzalez (Grundislav Games), the X-Files and and all the other nerdy sci-fi stuff the creator loved over the years. Episode 1: Jersey Devil - While visiting your cousin in Leeds Point, New Jersey, a neighbor child goes missing. Being in the FBI (though a desk-jockey, not the field-op type), you are thrust into the middle of the investigation. Did the legendary creature take the child, as the mother claims? Or is something more nefarious at hand in the sleepy southern New Jersey pine barrens? Episode 2: Talons of Terror - You are moved to another division of the FBI and promoted to special agent status. This new division investigates the stranger cases, and this is one of them. Cattle have been mutilated, taken long distances from their farms and eaten by something. There have been sightings of large creatures in the sky and three unsolved murders within recent months. You are thrust into an investigation ripe with intrigue as you explore Montana while trying to solve the mystery of who or what is killing the cattle, and why three people have turned up dead. Could it be a creature thought extinct millions of years ago? Or do the Sioux Indians have something to do with it? Episode 3: Lifedrinker of Landsdowne - You are given a case involving mysterious deaths in Landsdowne, Massachusetts. The bodies of two men in their early twenties have been found recently, and according to local authorities both dead men looked to be in their seventies when their bodies were found. There is no explanation as both men were thought to be healthy, and in the prime of their lives. Add to this the odd reports of a pack of animals roaming the town at night, and you have your work cut out for you. Is there some sort of vampire creature on the loose as some of the town rumors suggest? What is behind the rumors of odd goat-like creatures that have been seen after nightfall? Are the two related?

Pat & Mat: The Game Centauri Production / IDEA games [top]

This features a never used before brand for video-games and perfect reconstruction of stop-motion TV series assets in interactive world. Pat & Mat (original names in Czech Kutaci, ... A je to!, Pat a Mat) is a Czech stop-motion animated series featuring two handymen, Pat and Mat (Czech for "Stalemate" and "Checkmate", respectively). The show features the two characters facing mostly a self-made problem, trying to solve it using any possible and impossible tools and constructing gadgets, which leads to more problems. Yet, eventually, the two manage to get a working result with a mostly surprising solution. The humour is not the only feature of the show, another feature is having an optimistic approach towards life. The two characters always get into problematic situations but they never give up, until they solve the problem in imaginative ways. The player, taking control of Pat and Mat characters, solves various tasks in the game. The very basic controls are similar to strategy or adventure (“point-and-click”) games. Click on the hammer on the table and character will pick it up, click on the door, someone will open it (or tell you that you need the key first). Pat and Mat have been recreated in 3D computer art and dozens of animation sets including typical gestures and animations from the TV series. Although the game is 3D rendered in real time, it still looks like a very stylish stopmotion movie. There's a huge amount of "mini-games" and "micro-games".

Path, The Tale of Tales [top]

The Path is a short horror game inspired by Little Red Ridinghood with a unique form of gameplay, designed to immerse you deeply into the dark themes of its story. You play six sisters, the Red Girls, who are sent to their grandmother's house, one by one, with the explicit command to stay on the path. But not all young women can resist the seductive allure of the dark forest along the way. Every interaction in the game expresses an aspect of the narrative. There is one rule in the game. And it needs to be broken. There is one goal. And when you attain it, you die. The Path features a continuous soundtrack composed by Jarboe and mixed in real time through in-game activity. There's something wrong with the forest. No matter how bright the sun shines, it remains dark and foggy. It smells like something died. Strange noises fill the rusty air. Squeaks and screeches. The dull thump of someone chopping trees. The wind playing eerie melodies on ghostlike flutes. Shivers run down her spine. She just left the city. Cars can't drive here anymore. Mother told her to go visit grandmother. The old lady lives all alone at the other side of the forest. Quite a walk from here. It's probably best if she stays on the path. Play six different avatars with distinct personalities and interact with autonomous characters driven by Drama Princess technology. It has a unique free-form gameplay: do what you want when you want it, and mix the music in realtime through in-game activity. Lose yourself in an endless forest filled with attractions and attrocities. In a new chapter, entitled "The Path - Prologue", you take control of the mysterious character of the Girl in White, who roams the forest and can assist the Red Girls in their explorations. It's a free standalone application that functions as a trial version of The Path, even though it contains content that is not part of the full release.

Pathways Terry Cavanagh [top]

Pathways is a game about experimental storytelling. It starts in a house and the player controls a male character. There is a female character in the room and that forms the start of different possible storylines. The player is only able to move right, from screen to screen, until an opportunity is presented to go into a different direction when the paths branch. Through the player's decisions, there are up to eight different paths to explore, with a completely different background that changes the way the player perceives the male character. When characters talk, the conversation is shown in the style of silent films - black screens with text - before the story is continued. Whenever a path is completed, the game restarts and another route can be chosen. Previous paths are shielded from the player to guide the character into a different direction. The stories themselves are for the player to explore, but they cover a wide range of topics and emotions, and one of the prominent themes is the experience of absence. There is also a recurring character that is aware of your different paths and talks to you in successive sessions regardless of the game's restart.

Patrimonium [G] Chuck Productions [top]

Design and development of the first three of 5 acts were finished in 2003. The complete game was finally done in 2009. It was made with the 'Adventure Game Authoring Sytem' (AGAST). Almost nobody else raised such a controversial discussion regarding his historical relevancy than the ancient Egyptian pharao Akhenaten. Approximately 1350 B.C, as the "first montheist in world history", he dictated the sun god as the God of Egypt, symbolised by the solar disk Aten and declared the rest of the Egyptian gods redundant. A tempered opposition in the Egyptian population evolved from this religious revolution, which made sure that Akhenaten lapsed into Damnatio memoriae. Therefore his history is been considered as not proven for a long time. The recent discovery and positive identification of his mummy in a hidden and buried rock cut tomb far away from the valley of the kings, attracted enormous interest among the archaeological world. Less sensational publicity caused an artefact also found there. It is examined by a leading international research team behind closed doors in the labs of the company SamTec, which is responsible for financing the dig. One question came up quickly amongst some researchers, which significant role the artefact might have had during the founding of the Cult of Aten. Prof. Dr. Peter Wonciek, in his capacity as Professor of theoretical Physics at the Technical University Munich, is also part of the team. Yet as a physicist he is less interested in this particular question but much more interested in the pioneering physical characteristics of the research object. However, the protagonist Julian Hobler does not have a clue when he finds a letter from his former professor Wonciek in his letterbox, together with a plain ticket and a friendly invitation to come around to Egypt for a visit. Julian decides to accept the invitation right after two dubious contemporaries, you could label as dept-collectors, pop in for a visit and cause a gas explosion in his house. The trip to Egypt, primarily planned as a short trip, develops to a journey full of secrets, danger, revelations, and dramatic turns.

Return To Mysterious Island 2: Mina's Fate Kheops Studio / Microids [top]

The sequel to the adventure game inspired from Jules Verne's novel The Mysterious Island, offers the player an experience comparable to that of Robinson Crusoe or one of Verne's characters. But in this new installment, survival is not all! The player will also have to save the island from an environmental disaster. The scenario enhances ecological issues that were already shared by Jules Verne and that no one ever questions today. It offers a very innovative gameplay with the synchronization with iPhones and the information sharing module which will allow the PC player to complete a puzzle on his/her iPhone while on the go, then reintegrate it into his/her PC to continue the game. The data sharing module will allow one to seek advice and share impressions and tricks from players who are online at the same time. It begins with the crash of the helicopter that came to rescue Mina. She survived but is once again trapped on the island. All of a sudden, under her very eyes, an unknown disease afflicts the plants first, then the animal life. Mina explores the island to locate the infection source. She searches Captain Nemo's base in vain, then the ruins of an unknown civilization, and finally understands that it is outside pollution that threatens the island. The only way to save this natural wonder is to turn the shield back on. But if Mina makes this decision, she gives up -as Captain Nemo did before her- the idea of returning to civilization. Jep, the monkey from the first game, becomes a character in his own right. The player switches from one character to another and maximizes the use of each other's talents depending on the circumstances: only Mina can use complex tools, combine objects and, of course, read the documents found in the course of the game; whereas Jep can climb places inaccessible to Mina, communicate with other monkeys and find numerous objects thanks to his sense of smell.

Rosemary Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Labs [top]

Rosemary is a short point-and-click adventure made with the Wintermute engine and centered around the theme of childhood memories. When Rosemary discovers a photograph of a forgotten friend, she cannot recall what has become of him, so she decides to travel back to the town of New Rye to find out if it brings back any memories. At the start of the game three locations are available that the girl can explore freely. To progress in the game and solve the mystery, Rosemary's memory needs to be pieced back together. By examining the environment she will recall certain events that are stored as photographs. Placing these correctly inside a diary completes lines of text, reveals additional information and changes the environment, sometimes introducing new object or other subtle changes. The modern day New Rye is dark and deserted, but at any location Rosemary can travel back to the same place in her memory by clicking a button in the bottom left corner, revealing characters and events from her younger days. Retracing her steps opens up additional locations and a number of puzzles that also encompass collecting objects, storing them in an inventory and using them in the environment. The main actions are shown through buttons at the bottom of the screen: look at, walk, talk, listen, smell, take, open/close, dig, hit and put. Hovering over locations in the environment with the mouse cursor reveals a tooltip with the name written in text, indicating that the player can interact with it.

Runaway 3: A Twist of Fate Pendulo Studios / Focus Home Interactive [top]

This is the third and final game in the adventure series Runaway. Brian Basco is dead. We're attending his funeral, where Gina and other companions are saying goodbye to the once promising student. Whether or not Brian's body is really lying inside the coffin, we do not know. What is certain is that players will once again take control of the likeable youngster in the third game. That is to say, it's played via flashbacks, eventually revealing how Brian's supposed demise came to be. Besides re-enacting Brian's experiences, which start off with him being convicted for murder, players will also at times take control of Brian's better half, Gina Timmins. Unlike their last adventure, Gina will play a larger role in these events. Consequently, players will also be solving puzzles as the former stripper with her sporty hairdo and tight-fitting outfit. It has visually improved thanks to a new graphic engine. The game now has high resolution backgrounds, more detailed and expressive characters, and more realistic animations... The interface has also been improved and offers an inventory allowing you to check each item from every angle possible.

Saw: The Video Game Zombie Studios / Konami [top]

This adaption of the popular Saw film series is a third-person survival horror video game with action elements. The creators of the first Saw film were brought in to write a new storyline and design new traps for the game. The Jigsaw Killer has healed Detective David Tapp from his gunshot wound, and places him in an abandoned asylum to teach him a lesson of life appreciation. Tapp traverses the building gathering clues along the way in hopes of finally apprehending Jigsaw. He encounters both friends and foes as he comes closer to escaping the asylum and its inhabitants who have plans contrary to his survival. Along the way, Tapp uncovers the origins of Jigsaw and his motives behind his tests, as well as learning the fates of those from the first Saw film. The player controls David Tapp, a former detective trapped in the Jigsaw Killer's asylum filled with traps. The primary goal of the game is to traverse the asylum and solve traps in order to escape alive. Tapp will have several abilities in the game to fulfill his objectives such as searching things like toilets or dead bodies to find things like weapons, health, or clues. There are also various things hidden around the asylum that can be found to provide background on why Tapp is there and other information on Jigsaw and others. Many of these come in the form of "Jigsaw Notes" left behind or cassette tapes found laying around. The game's combat system allows the character to block, counter-attack, and perform weak or strong attacks to fend off enemies in the asylum. Also, Tapp is able to curb-stomp injured enemies or activate their trap if they have one. Tapp will have over eighteen different weapons, varying from lead pipes to mop handles available to him throughout the game. In addition to standard weapons, Tapp may recover firearms or explosives along the way. Certain weapons may also be used for other purposes such as cutting open a body to search it or breaking down a molding wall to reveal hidden paths.

Scene of the Crime, The Pastel Games [top]

This is another series from Pastel Games, the masters of short, atmospheric point-and-click adventures. Episode 1 (May/09) With a story conceived by Karol Konwerski, it takes us into the sleazy, blood-stained world of detective novels. Kind of a Great House Escape as re-imagined by Frank Miller. In a world so noir that sunshine has been legally replaced by ominous street lamps, you play the part of a detective on a murder case. Rather than track down the perpetrator yourself, your job is to collect evidence and put together a case for conviction. Point and click your way around the grisly crime scene until you've ticked off all the necessary plot points, and then leave the apartment to conclude the story. Access your briefcase full of forensic tools through the icon in the lower-left. There's a nice physicality to this, aided greatly by Kamil Kochansky's thick, twisted visuals. The fiddling with forensic tools, the clump of your footsteps as you explore the apartment, the syrupy background saxophones by composer Kolczok—it all puts you in the scene. The adventure is short, just a chapter in the saga, but even so, there's a feeling of disconnect between the vibrant cutscenes that book-end the story, and the gameplay itself. It might have been more effective to sprinkle parts of the (surprisingly violent) closing scene throughout the game as you discover details, CSI-style. Episode 2: The Golden Doll (July/10) is a new noir point-and-click mystery that asks you to solve a murder on some quiet beachfront property. Click to interact with people and objects, and click on items in your inventory to use them. Dust for prints, Remember to check your reports tray on your desk back at the office frequently; as evidence is analysed, reports will come in that can unlock new clues and locations. The office is also where you'll be able to dust evidence you find for fingerprints and track your progress on the leads board; click and drag items pinned to it to attempt to combine clues. Click on your map to travel to new locations as they become available. This episode is longer, and requires you to do a bit more detective work this time around. The game is no slouch in regards to its presentation either; the artwork is gorgeous, and the soundtrack is so mellow and appropriate you'll probably find yourself spontaneously sprouting a trench coat just by listening to it. Episode 3: Dream of a Murder (Mar/13) A body is found in a crashed car out in the desert. When investigations into the murder attract the attention of the FBI, it seems that this case may be bigger than it first appears. The graphics not the black and white stylized drawn ones of the past episodes, but it's now in realistic colour.

Separation Simon Krygicz [top]

The developer graduated from Graphic Design at the Wroclaw Academy of Fine Arts. His thesis was this game Separation and the realization of the game engine which uses a computer for artistic activities. It uses a modified version of the Doom 3 engine. He cared most on creating atmosphere, and to move the viewer in a place of his dreams. Despite the use of modern techniques for creating images, he tried to keep the project were devoid of flashy graphics fireworks. To give it some thought and philosophy, symbols and their realizations are often used to give a fantasy style. Fairy tales are timeless and thoughts hidden in them are universal.

Songs from the border of the genre ambient and electronic music was a great source of inspiration. They allow you to get away from it all, brings you to a distant and unknown land. It's based on an animation that was created a few years ago. All of the models, textures and materials are self-made. Although there isn’t any common computer game plot in Separation, a technique called "The Graphic Plot" was used. The visual setting is the most important part of the production. He concentrated on emphasizing the structure of destroyed walls, the secret and deserted complex of buildings. Such care of details has its explanation- the player can almost feel the claustrophobic space.

Tales of Monkey Island Telltale Games / LucasArts [top]

Rather than a full-fledged sequel, the new series will follow the familiar monthly-release format of the studio's other episodic adventures. The "season" will consist of five episodes, but unlike the relatively standalone Sam & Max, Strong Bad and Wallace & Gromit episodes, Tales of Monkey Island promises to be more of a serialized adventure. While still delivering a self-contained experience in each installment, the overall storyline will be a much more cohesive focus throughout the full season. During a heated battle with his nemesis, the evil pirate LeChuck, Guybrush unwittingly unleashes an insidious pox that rapidly spreads across the Caribbean, turning pirates into zombie-like monsters. The Voodoo Lady sends Guybrush in search of a legendary sea sponge to stem the epidemic, but this seemingly straightforward quest has surprises around every corner. The titles are: Chapter 1 Launch of the Screaming Narwhal (July 7) - franchise protagonist Guybrush Threepwood found himself once again hassled by the undead pirate LeChuck, who had once again kidnapped the errant sailor's wife. Chapter 2 The Siege of Spinner Cay (Aug 20) - finds Threepwood having just escaped Flotsam Island aboard The Screaming Narwhal and on the prowl for LeChuck who now in human form seems, from a distance, to be courting fair Elaine's favor. To top it all, Threepwood's been intercepted by a mysterious figure. Chapter 3 Lair of the Leviathan (Sep 29) - after being captured and held at swordpoint by by the sassy pirate hunter Morgan LeFlay, they are all swallowed by a giant manatee who has lost a cornea to a trio of pirates in its belly. Guybrush must win acceptance into the pirates' secret society by performing a number of humorous tasks, reacquaint himself with Murray, the Demonic Talking Skull, and find the legendary sea sponge.Chapter 4 The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood (Oct 30) - Guybrush is double-crossed by the pirate hunter Morgan LeFlay and returned to Flotsam Island against his will. Facing an angry mob of poxed pirates with a long list of grievances, Guybrush must defend himself in court against a smooth-talking prosecutor and absolve himself of the false accusations in order to continue his quest to rid the Caribbean of the insidious pox of LeChuck. Chapter 5 Rise of the Pirate God (Dec 8) - Having survived a variety of trials in pursuit of a mystical sponge that would rid the world of the pirate pox he himself unleashed, Guybrush's moment of triumph is abruptly ended when a resurgent LeChuck deals a mortal blow to the heroic mighty pirate. Now Guybrush faces his most deadly challenge yet – literally.

What's worse than finding out that your future evil selves have set about a series of events that wipes out all human life on the planet? Going back in time to fix things with half a mind on preventing coathangers from ever being invented, and accidentally setting up an alternate-universe Hitler with an unstoppable army of dinosaur clones instead, that's what! Whoopsie! It was designed and written as an adventure game for grown-ups. As such, it contains all the naughty swears, and contains adult themes.

Ulitsa Dimitrova Lea Schönfelder, Gerard Delmas [top]

The game Ulitsa Dimitrova refers to the name of a street in St. Petersburg in Russia. It was made by students of the Kunsthochschule Kassel in Germany and it tells the story of 7-year-old Pjotr who crawls out of a dumpster every day and lives on the streets. Although it is developed using the AGS adventure engine, it is more of a simulation of the boy's life, without clear goals, puzzles, an inventory, a storyline or an ending. All art and animations are drawn in ballpoint and the street is presented as a side-scrolling area that wraps around when Pjotr keeps walking in a single direction. In this interactive environment one of the main objectives is to support Pjotr's smoking habit. He can bum cigarettes off a dealer by stealing signs of cars, or by breaking store windows to steal liquor and trade it with a glue sniffing kid. The alcohol can also be carried to his mother, a prostitute down the street, who gives him some money for it, which he can use to buy his cigarettes at a news stand. There is no pressure or ending to the game, and it goes on until the player is bored and quits. There is also a recurring event involving a stranger and a single event where Pjotr is looking for friendship. The game is entirely controlled through the mouse and the cursor changes when interaction is possible.

Warsaw's Mission: Bielany & Mission: Bielany II Nitreal / Bielany District Office [top]

Warsaw's Mission: Bielany Initially released as a free Flash browser game in Poland in three parts lasting an hour each. Its developers previously worked on The Witcher. You play as an Agent of Mayor's Office Protection Squad (MOPS). More than 100,000 people around the world played it, and at one time there were so many players online at once that it crashed their server. The game was about an agent of the mayor's office protection squad trying to learn more about a mysterious person called 'The Dark Character'. It involved travelling through the capital of Poland, where you met with an eccentric professor and several other characters. The game used real photographs, educating players about the history and geography of the Warsaw district. Mission: Bielany II (2011) takes place predominantly in Warsaw's (the capital city of Poland) Bielany District, showcasing the district's varied locations using spherical photographic panoramas. Additionally, players will be able to visit two additional cities: Cracow and Torun, both of which have their own Bielany districts. In total, the game spans 25 different locations, presented using 200 unique spherical panoramas. You take the role of the local newspaper's reporter, investigating the mysterious disappearance of one of your informants. Very soon you find yourself mixed up in a deadly conspiracy which spans decades, targetted by a dangerous villain known only as the Enigma Man. Its three episodes of two hours each are now downloadable and use the Ogre engine, which allows all the panoramas to be displayed in very high resolution. The Polish version had voiceovers for all characters. Instead of only using photographs, the sequel has FMV sequences with real actors like in Detalion's Reah and Schizm, so you can see the person you're talking to move and respond. The game also has some action cinematics.

Well, The Conker Media, Digital Media / BBC Switch [top]

This is a horror point-and-click mystery designed to run alongside the BBC miniseries of the same name, divided into chapters that shed more light on the story behind the videos you unlock as you progress. Billed as a "multi-platform horror drama", it tells the story of four teenagers who discover an old well hidden deep within a house undergoing restoration and end up awakening something much older and darker than they may be prepared to deal with. You'll start out with access to the first ten minute clip of the series, and the first level of the game. Each time you complete a level, you'll unlock another clip and stage. The game is played with the mouse; click and hold on the screen during gameplay, and move your mouse around to shift your view and look around the room you're in. Text will pop up on the screen as you move the cursor over certain areas, and clicking on them will let you interact with your environment. Complete minigames throughout the house to discover items and unlock more pieces of the story. Clicking the icons in the top-right corner of the screen will let you toggle the sound and subtitles, while the Navigator tab will let you play the stages and scenes you've unlocked. You don't have to watch the video clips, but if you don't, you'll miss out on half the story, which is easily the game's selling point. It is Carnegie Medal and Guardian Children's Fiction Prize winner Melvin Burgess's first project on digital media and television. For those Whovians out there it is also a very good excuse to see a pre-Doctor Who Karen Gillan in a lead role. As the story develops, the drama flows between the TV episodes (4 x 10 minutes) and the 3D immersive game (3 x 20 minute levels); when a character hides an item within the house on TV, the audience can immediately go online, solve a puzzle, and uncover the item from its hiding place.

William and Sly 1-2 Lucas Paakh [top]

Take on the role of an agile fox in a fantastic world, working to uncover all of its secrets and find out the reason why a network of teleportation runes has suddenly stopped working. With a massive map to explore, achievements to earn, and powers to acquire, William and Sly is almost more experience than game. You'd love nothing better than to spend your days leaping through the trees in search of mushrooms, especially those hidden away by greedy gnomes, but today William needs your help. Fix the teleportation system with the help of the mysterious fairyflies. Just be careful of where you step, as the sinister Darklings are also after the fairyflies... for an entirely different reason. The world outside William's door is enormous. Rain-slicked mountains, towering fir trees, and hidden caverns await your exploration. Don't be afraid to fall, because Sly can take anything you throw at him. In fact, the silky-smooth control scheme practically begs you to push it to its limits and run, leap, and maybe even soar your way to discover every hidden item. The game is a stunner, with a haunting soundtrack and incredibly smooth visuals. William and Sly 2 (2011) The sequel is a vast, richly layered feast for the eyes. While gameplay remains much the same, there are also marked changes (improvements as far as most players will be concerned): no more darklings or boss battles yet plenty of exploration, item gathering, and questing. Gaining helpful abilities involves your platforming and puzzle-solving skills to add just the right amount of gameplay into what is a sumptuous work of interactive art. The gnomes have stolen and torn up William's journal, scattering the pages high and low. William, who is too busy working on his tan to be bothered, sends his vulpine friend, Sly, to gather the pages together. Those cagey gnomes have blocked up many of Sly's caves, so no longer does he go blindly spelunking for treasures. Yet, it turns out, gnomes cast sloppy dissolution spells so the blockages crumble at the slightest touch revealing... treasure, which in this case refers to mushrooms. Explore this surreal landscape of towering sequoias, intricately carved cliffs and mysterious caverns. You'll encounter enigmatic shrines where you can meditate to uncover side quests for new abilities, one of which is essential for completion of the game. These campaigns add significantly to the fun and require thoughtful problem-solving to complete. Happily, the fairy flies from the first game remain useful for these matters. Bring up the journal pages to read backstory hinting at how the little fox came to live with William, why he was dubbed Sly, and other narrative touches that round out the story. As a result of using Blender to multilayer the sprites, the landscape has undergone a 3D-like transformation and the rich details of the first incarnation have multiplied triple-fold. Just as soothing and meditative as before, the music, also by Lucas Paakh, takes on deeper tones and a richer sound. Bird song has replaced the thunder and lightening; there is a post-storm calm and serenity in this world.

Windosill Vectorpark, Inc. [top]

This is a puzzle game that involves a cute toy car. Players need to guide it through different, single screen rooms and discover the solution to open up the next room. This is always done by locating a cube that unlocks the door. In order to do so, items in the environment can be dragged and clicked. By interpreting the results, the actions can be linked to find a solution. The toy car itself can also be picked up and moved around, and interact with the objects in a physics-based environment. Many objects and themes in the game also appear in earlier Vectorpark games, with an often absurdist style. Although most rooms seem simple at first, they require a lot of trial and error to discover the solution. The first levels can be played free of charge in a browser. The full game can be downloaded for a small fee.

You Testament, The MDickie [top]

Players are invited to experience life as a disciple of Jesus and witness the birth of Christianity with their own eyes. It takes you back to the time of Christ and allows you to witness his impact on society firsthand. Be the feet that follow him around ancient Palestine, the voice that tempts him in the wilderness, and the ears that hear his guidance. Then be the hand that betrays him, the mouth that denies him, and the eyes that see his death and resurrection. By the time the story has been told, it will be the most personal account ever documented - the Gospel according to YOU! Featuring a unique interpretation of events and scriptural references for further reading, the teachings of Christ have never been more relevant and accessible. Neither pious nor blasphemous, it's a thought-provoking challenge of what you thought you knew and an uplifting reminder of what will always be true. You start off by designing a suitable look for your avatar, then proceed to guide your chosen disciple on a long and arduous journey of self-discovery and revelation. This may involve lots of meditation to gain divine powers, preaching, stealing, drinking, fathering children, beating sense into people, submitting to torture (or dishing them out), and perhaps even perform a miracle or two. The game was later made freeware.

Aliens in the Attic Revistronic / Playlogic [top]

Based on the movie created by the writer of Madagascar and Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were Rabbit. The Aliens in the Attic videogame follows the storyline of the adventure-comedy film about a group of kids on a family vacation who must stave off an attack by knee-high alien invaders with world-conquering ambitions; all while trying to keep their parents from finding out. The big country house is transformed into a battlefield, from the roof to the basement, from the attic to the venting system, from the living room to the garden. It gives players a whole new way to experience the storyline by allowing them to assume the identity of one off our different alien explorers whose mission it is to take over the summer home, and possibly the world. This version of the game features 15 exciting levels that are carried out in four different locations. Plus, players can switch between characters on the fly for fast-paced action.

And Yet It Moves Broken Rules [top]

This is a platform game with puzzle elements where the goal is simply to complete each of the levels. The twist is that next to regular movement (left, right, jumping), the player is also able to rotate the game world in instances of ninety degrees, both left and right. That way, the environment can be explored in different directions. Even though it becomes possible to complete a level without the movement keys, it is mainly used for puzzles. Players need to take out enemies by moving items from the environment, guide a shadow character that mirror the player's actions, or do complex sets of platform jumping including bouncing ledges and swings. By quickly rotating, the velocity can be increased to dazzling speeds, but when the character hits the ground too fast or from too high a distance, he will be killed. After every section there is a checkpoint and there is an unlimited amount of tries per level. The graphical style is envisioned as a world of paper cut-outs, in regard to the player's character as well as every item in the environment. There are also different themes for the levels, including fire, jungle and rocks. The game is divided into three main acts and an epilogue. Next to the main game mode, the levels can be played in competition for the fastest times, with global high score leaderboards as well as ghosts of other players.

Blueberry Garden Eric Svedang / Steam [top]

This is a game about survival set in a hand-drawn world with a vibrant ecosystem. Players control a bird-like character that is able to move around, jump, fly, and pick and throw items. While exploring, trees and bushes can be found that produce different types of fruit with magical effects. By consuming these, the character is able to fly long distances, terraform the environment and breathe underwater. There are other friendly creatures also inhabit the world. They procreate, walk around and eat the fruit. By picking them up and moving them, the player can manipulate the environment to make sure not all items are eaten. Fruit can also be moved around to have it grow at other locations. That way the player is fully able to alter the environment, a technique required to complete the main goal of the game. Physics also play an important role to achieve this. The garden will be flooded slowly, and by gaining access to different kind of objects, used to construct a giant tower, the player needs to figure out a way to overcome this. It is possible to die when drowning in water (the character cannot swim), but it can start over again from the starting location right away, without having to replay parts. While carrying around fruit, it is possible to press a key to return to the starting point. Often, specific items will need to be used on a different location. There is no linear path to follow, the player can explore the garden in any direction. The game is meant to be played multiple times, to discover the different possibilities as well to find out about the two endings. It won 'Best Independent Game' prize at the 2009 Independent Games Festival and is available on Steam for only $5.

Braid Number None, Inc. / Microsoft Game Studios [top]

Braid is a puzzle game disguised as a 2D platformer. The player controls Tim during his search for a princess he has known and lost. Although the objective appears to be rather straightforward at first, the meaning and the motives become much more implicit and are interwoven with the mechanics during the course of the game. From a main hub, Tim can eventually access six worlds that consist of different areas. The start of each world reveals a part of the Tim's background and emotions, rather than progressing a storyline. The second to the sixth world can be entirely explored without solving all the puzzles. Difficult situations can be ignored and revisited later. When all worlds have been completed, the first one becomes available and brings closure to the story. The game's concept is entirely based around time manipulation. Tim cannot die permanently as the player can rewind time at any moment and usually for any length, even all the way back when an area was entered. While rewinding, the music is synchronized in a similar fashion. Rather than a gimmick, rewinding is an essential element to solve the puzzles. The different worlds give a spin to the mechanic by introducing clones as the player collaborates in a parallel reality with a past version of himself, time can be affected through the movement direction, and Tim can create a circular area to cause time dilation. Certain items, enemies and parts of the scenery are immune to time manipulation or behave in a very different way. Puzzles require close examination of the environment and the behaviour of different items and enemies. As such, the game is entirely about solving the puzzle theoretically by applying the game mechanics and then using trial and error to executive it and discover possible flaws in the proposed logic. This also brings limited replayability to the game. A world is solved by collecting the puzzle pieces. These need to be arranged and eventually show a picture related to the game's story. There is no filler in the level design, meaning that every platform, item or game element (except for a few enemies) has a specific purpose to solve a puzzle. Fast times can be tracked in a separate speedrun mode.

Crayon Physics Deluxe Kloonigames Ltd [top]

This is the full game that was developed out of an earlier free to play prototype from 2007. It is a puzzle game of crayons and physics. The goal for each of the 80 levels is to move a red ball so it hits one or more yellow stars. The mouse (or a tablet PC) is used to draw physical objects of different colours which can move the ball, block it or provide a bridge. The objects interact with each other as well as with the environment. The left mouse button is used to draw, and the right one to erase objects. When the ball falls off the screen, it reappears at its original relocation. It is also possible to reset an entire level. The game is played against a scrap paper background and all objects have a crayon art style. The most important change is that the puzzles are now shown as areas on different islands. From the overview map, the player can travel to different locations and try levels. For each won level, the number of stars is added up. When an entire island has been completed, it is possible to travel between eight different islands to try a new set, provided that a sufficient amount of stars has been collected. Islands that require many stars also provide more difficult levels and player can choose to skip a level to solve it later. Even though the basic concept has not been changed, the physics model has been vastly improved. More types of shapes can be drawn and there are pins to connect them, which opens up the possibility to draw objects that act like hammers that swing down to kick the ball. The mouse wheel is used to change the colour of the lines and there are much more levels with different themes and variations. A new function allows the player to nudge the ball a little to the left or the right, but it has a reloading instance so that it cannot be used constantly. A level editor is included to design custom levels and these can be uploaded to a playground. When registered, it is possible to download and play custom levels designed by other users.

Humans, The (2009) Blue Monkey Studios Inc. / Deep Silver, Koch Media [top]

"Humans" is a quirky, humerous puzzle game (a remake of the 1992 version), combining classic old school game play with strategic puzzle based elements which come together to create a fun, action packed, thought provoking arcade puzzle game. It features: 80 fun packed, challenging levels, a large variety of npc types consisting of evil tribe members and dinosaurs, and the ability to control multiple characters via waypoints and intuitive controls. New Human characters are all aesthetically different, including, Regular Humans, The Woman, The Boy, The Girl, The Baby, The Witchdoctor, The Village Elder. You must guide a tribe of caveman ancestors through a series of platforming puzzles, with obstacles ranging from gaping chasms that must be leapt over, hostile tribe members who must be avoided or dealt with, and even roaming dinosaurs. The goal in each puzzle is to basically get your caveman to a hut, or retrieve some crucial bit of technology (like a rope), or to free a squarish caveman lass from the hostile tribe. You only get five lives per puzzle, and if a caveman misses a jump or gets eaten by a dinosaur you use up a life. Once all five lives are exhausted you have to restart the entire puzzle. The game consists of eight different worlds composed of 10 levels each, and each level will probably take 10 to 15 minutes to figure out, so there's a fair bit of gameplay here if you have the patience and grit to grind it out.

Mirror's Edge 2D Borne Games / Electronic Arts [top]

This is the winner of 2009's best action game by JayIsGames site. Mirror's Edge is a successful 3D first-person platformer where players take control of Faith, a runner who's job is to transmit messages without garnering the ire of government surveillance. In the free 2D Flash version, you control Faith by using keyboard keys to run, duck, slide, climb, wallrun, and jump. The style of the game reminds one of a classic version of Mission Impossible on the Commodore 64. The most charming element of Mirror's Edge 2D is the rapid yet smooth way that Faith moves. The game is all about maintaining momentum, and it's easily to see why after playing the game for only a few minutes. Mirror's Edge 2D has both a story mode and time trial mode, giving it considerable replay value for a free online game. There's also an unlockable 'Baddie Rush' mode, should you find all of the game's evidence files. This game feels like what side-scrolling platform games hshould have been like in their heyday.

This is a futuristic hybrid between an action platformer and an action puzzler. Each time when you have completed the platforming stage (in which you jump, fly, fight and run) you get to the puzzle segment. In the puzzle stage you have to hit the right buttons at the right time. To understand the gameplay mechanics, it's highly recommend to play through the tutorial before you start the game. The game has overall great production values and features really nice animations, futuristic graphics with fine effects, an original soundtrack, nice cut scenes which drives the story further and a nostalgic HUD which reminds of the good old Amiga days.

Ninja Blade FromSoftware, Inc. / ND Games, bitComposer Games [top]

In 2011 a small village in South America is attacked by unknown creatures. Upon inspecting the survivors, a new type of hook worm is discovered and classified as “Alpha-worm”. These parasites cannot be countered with any known medicine and spread through the blood stream of their victims, rewriting their genetic code and turning them into much stronger monsters. They escaped the research facility and the situation quickly became uncontainable, resulting in the drop of an atomic bomb on the site. Since then there have been several contained outbreaks all over the world which have all been stopped by the G.U.I.D.E.-squad, a special forces unit consisting of Ninjas especially trained for these outbreaks. The game starts in 2015 with another outbreak happening in Tokyo. But as opposed to the previous outbreaks, the parasites are spreading much faster and only a few days after the first infection, the first sky-high level-5-infected are sighted. So once again the team is sent in to deal with the situation. The player takes on the role of Ken Ogawa and quickly finds himself without his team-mates and betrayed by his own father. Bound to duty but driven by revenge, the player controls him from a classic 3rd-person-perspective through the nine, very long levels. A great part of the game plays similar to Devil May Cry 4 with the player using his three different kind of swords (balanced, slow and fast) as well as a over-sized throwing star to deal with the infected, using the available combos. All the weapons are upgradeable in several stages by using the Blood Crystals that all killed enemies drop. The throwing star also gains additional abilities during the course of the game turning him e.g. into a fire extinguisher or burning projectile. There are also jump-'n'-run-elements included, requiring the player to use wall-walk or swinging on rails to advance through the level. The game also calls itself an interactive movie and this is where the second core gameplay mechanic comes into play: Quick Time Events. The levels are designed like one big boss fight where the player encounters the final boss of the level right from the start and follows him or is chased by him through hordes of normal enemies, jump-‘n’-run-passages and intermediate-bosses. To keep the action going and looking impressive, the game constantly switches fluently to Quick Time Events, indicated by a quick zoom onto Ken's eye. From this moment on, the player just need to follow the instructions on-screen and watch the carnage unfold. If he fails to hit a button at the right moment, the game rewinds the time back a little but no further than to the start of the Quick Time Event. Since Quick Time Events play an important role, their difficulty level can be adjusted independently from the one for normal gameplay.

PuzzleBloom Team Shotgun / Det Danske Akademi for Digital, Interaktiv Underholdning Filmskolen [top]

This is a lovely Unity 3D game, winner of the IGF 2010 Student Showcase. It's a 3D isometric puzzle game in which you must bring greenery and life back to cold, dead, industrialized floating islands. You achieve that by being a green fuzzy dude, who leaps parasitically from drone to drone, controlling their actions to gain access to a node which will light up the environment with trees and grass. It’s a bit like Okami. The floating, ghost-like character controlled by the player is not able to move on its own; instead it needs to temporarily possess another creature to move it around to activate switches or push boxes. In order to travel around, another creature needs to be in sight and at the same level of the one controlled by the player. At times, the creatures can die, but then the player's character needs to find a new host before that happens. There are also robots that try to get the drones back to work. These can also be temporarily possessed and controlled to a degree, but they quickly explode and cannot be taken over long. Most puzzles consists of different switches that activate platforms or open passages, along with boxes and moving laser beams that kill instantly. The two game worlds are divided in different sectors where checkpoints are activated by making nature bloom again in that area. The environment is presented using a cel shaded style and the camera can be moved around, and zoom in and out. The game is a student project and is free to play, but by donating some money additional levels are available.

Rocketbirds: Revolution! Ratloop Asia Pte Ltd [top]

This is an old-school action game, ala Flashback, where you're a commando named 'Hardboiled Chicken' trying to take down the oppressive penguin regime. The story is awesomely ridiculous. Characters stare at the screen giving dramatic speeches while the camera slowly zooms in on their beak-adorned face. Propaganda posters and cartoons for the penguin empire are strewn about the levels. A sign beneath a camera says “Big Brother Likes To Watch”. The animation and art direction are also superb. The quality seen in the animation here is rare for a flash game. Art direction in the levels is terrific and full of the little details that make a game like this fun. The gameplay itself is straight-up Flashback: You can collect keycards, ammo and multiple types of weapons to slowly progress your way through the level, and if you create an account your game is automatically saved on their servers. The full game is only $9.95.

The game uses an online savegame system and there are six mini-games to unlock when the corresponding cartridge is found in a level. These are modelled after classic retro games.

Spelunky Mossmouth, LLC [top]

Spelunky is a platform game about an explorer who discovers a cave in the desert and ventures inside to loot for treasure, reminiscent of Rick Dangerous and La•Mulana. The game consists of sixteen levels, but for each playthrough the entire level layout (general structure, enemies, traps, items) is completely randomized, making it an entirely new game each time. There are also some fixed parameters, such as certain sets of enemies and level themes that are introduced only from a specific level. The game features four separate "areas", each of which contains four levels and is set in a different environment and has different enemies. The main goal is to finish the sixteen levels by locating the exits, but players are encouraged to collect jewels and other types of treasure. The main character can move around, run, jump, hang off ledges and attack enemies with his whip (jumping on top off them works as well). He begins with four "hearts" (health) and when these are used up, the entire game needs to be replayed. The explorer also suffers falling damage when the distance is too high. The other basic equipment includes a rope to climb up and a number of bombs. The latter is not only used to dispose of enemies such as spiders, bats, snakes, cavemen and the undead, but also to blast through certain parts of the level. They can be used to create a path and often expose treasure hidden in the ground and walls. In certain sections the explorer can carry a lost girl or an idol (that triggers a trap, such as a huge rolling boulder) to the exit for additional points (or, in the case of the girl, for an additional heart). Sometimes a key can be located to unlock a secret item in a chest, for instance to restore health. Money can be used to gamble for a secret rewards or in shops for weapons (bombs, a shotgun, a pistol, a spider web gun, a knife) or other items (a flying cape, climbing gloves, springy shoes, a parachute, an axe, a compass). The explorer can also pick up items and smash them to reveal a reward or an enemy, or use the items as a weapon against enemies. Certain levels are set entirely in the dark and in those sections a box of flares needs to be carried around. Should the player spend too much time on a particular level, a ghost appears that chases him and kills him on contact. While traveling between the areas, the player can come upon the friendly "Tunnel Man" who - for a price - will dig a shortcut, allowing the player to start the game from one of the later levels rather than from the beginning. Next to the regular game there is also a number of secret rooms to unlock. In 2012, Tiny Subversions ported the game to a browser-playable version using HTML5 .

Titanium Chef Mod7 / British Columbia Dairy Foundation [top]

This is a free web browser-playable educational game that's a funny, beautifully made game which is great fun even if you're not really all that keen on learning about food groups. It's a point-and-click adventure in four parts. You play a lowly chef-bot in the year 3015 who, along with his best friend Moxie (a floating pink ball of fur), escapes his humdrum job and ventures out to become the best chef-bot in the galaxy. Unfortunately, the galaxy is filled with more dangers than the poor chef-bot was counting on. To understand why you need a little history lesson. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... er, anyway, a while ago, an evil ruler by the name of Rogulus swept across the galaxy with his evil troops, leaving in their wake a massive swath of destruction, fast food cartons, and puppies (apparently it can be difficult to supply evil troops with food and cuddles when one is bent on subduing the galaxy). Rogulus was the enemy of all that was good and wholesome and apparently nutritious. But due to the efforts of a few heroes, Rogulus was beaten back and peace reigned in the galaxy once more. But as our hero discovers as he makes his way from a backwater planet on his quest to become Titanium Chef, something is amiss. Evil forces are at work once again, and suspicious things are happening that evoke the dark days of Rogulus' reign. No matter. The lowly chef-bot discovers hints and clues to the bigger picture while working his way towards several cooking competitions, learning about food groups, portion sizes, and balanced nutrition, all the better to help him win and eventually become the best chef-bot of them all. It's designed for kids aged 10-13 to learn about nutrition. Each chapter has two or three segments, designed to be played in 30 to 40 minutes.

Trine Frozenbyte / Nobilis Group [top]

Trine is a physics-based beautiful side-scrolling platforming game with lots of little puzzle situations, where three characters allow clever solutions to challenges created by hazardous puzzles and threatening enemies. The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics - each character's different abilities and tactics can be used to invent new ways to overcome obstacles and save the kingdom! The heart of Trine is the three characters, who are bound to this mysterious device we call the Trine. Only one of the characters can be outside of the device at time, but the player is able to choose freely which one he has outside, given that the character is alive. The various puzzles, action sequences and other challenges are built in a way where many characters can solve them, but each puzzle usually favors one or two of the characters. Ultimately, the play style is created by the player but a single repeatable tactic is not possible due to the vast diversity of the encounters. A very heavily modified Shadowgrounds engine is used. A free DLC called Path to New Dawn was released in April/2010 which has a unique level with new visuals and challenging gameplay, especially on Very Hard difficulty setting. It also features 10 special items for the player to collect. The level is unlocked and available in the Select level menu once the game has been completed.

Watchmen: The End Is Nigh Deadline Games / Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment [top]

This is an episodic video game series that serves as a prequel to the film adaptation of the comic book Watchmen. The game was released in installments in March & August 2009 and takes place during the Crimebusters era, when Rorschach and Nite Owl II were crime-fighting vigilantes before the Keene Act passed in the 1970's. It takes place ten years before the film. Richard Nixon is not president of the United States (yet), and The Keene act, which bans superhero activity, is a few years away from being passed. Rorschach and Nite Owl have partnered up to fight crime, and in keeping with the graphic novel's universe, they fight members of the Knock-top gang, the Underboss' minions, and visit familiar locations like the Rumrunner bar. The duo eventually uncovers a criminal conspiracy, and other Watchmen characters also make cameo appearances. They are the only playable characters in the game's Episode 1 in singleplayer or cooperative multiplayer, which comprises six "chapters." Cutscenes that look like animated comic panels, similar to those seen in the Watchmen motion comics released on iTunes, bookend each chapter. Two of the film's actors, Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earl Haley, provide their voices for their characters. The game features a mix of beat-em-up and puzzle gameplay, with the two characters having different strengths and abilities. Rorschach is faster but weaker and makes use of improvised weapons like crowbars and chairs; Nite Owl is slower but stronger and uses technological abilities, such as "screecher bombs." The characters must work cooperatively to pass puzzles and defeat enemies. The first chapter of the game is a tutorial taking place while Rorschach and Nite Owl infiltrate a prison for unknown reasons. Underboss/The Big Figure, a minor villain Rorschach and Nite Owl mention in the comic book as having been defeated by the pair in the past, appears in the game, as do other adversaries who are only mentioned or briefly shown in flashbacks in the original comic. Nite Owl's flying craft, Archimedes, appears in the game, but it is unknown if the player has control of the vehicle during the game. The game focuses on teamwork between the two characters: in single-player mode, the AI controls the other character aside from the main character, while the game can be played in Local Co-op with two players as both characters. In Episode 2, Rorschach sets on the trail of a missing girl named Violet Greene. With a reluctant Nite Owl in tow, they infiltrate a seedy strip club, where they discover that the kidnapper is the Twilight Lady, an old flame of Nite Owl's. They break into her mansion (which acts as a high class brothel) and discover Violet has been brainwashed into thinking that she enjoys her new work as a prostitute. Nite Owl consents that if Violet is there of her "own free will" then there is nothing that they can do. Rorschach disagrees, and the pair chase Twilight Lady through the mansion, before she is thrown into a skylight. The ending of the chapter depends upon the outcome of the final battle (between Nite Owl and Rorschach). If Nite Owl wins, then Rorschach is thrown through the skylight, and Twilight Lady is rescued. If Rorschach wins, however, then Nite Owl is thrown to one side, and Rorschach smashes the skylight, thus killing Twilight Lady. Whichever character is the victor, the game ends with the partnership between Nite Owl and Rorschach being severed, and Nite Owl teaming up with the Comedian to quell a riot (an event which is depicted both in the graphic novel, and the film).

Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey Ludia, Inc. / Ubisoft, Inc. [top]

This is based on the famous Where's Waldo series of children's books, where the reader has to find Waldo, who is hidden in various pictures in the middle of hundreds of people. The videogame is very faithful to the book, and contains of course some new gameplay mechanisms. It's a puzzle-solving and hidden objects adventure game, where the player have to find twelve ancient scrolls hidden throughout twelve different worlds. In each of these worlds, the player has to examine hundreds of static and scrollable pictures, to find Waldo but also some other characters and objects that are displayed at the bottom of the screen. During the adventure, the player will meet with some famous characters from the Where's Waldo universe such as Wizard Whitebeard, Wenda and Odlaw. Woof the dog is a precious companion which will be able to give hints to find some objects or characters if the player gets stuck. In tradition with many hidden-objects games, it comes with a set of mini-games to complete between the casual levels. The game includes both a single-player mode as well as a two players versus mode, with a set of power-ups to enhance the player searches or to block in many ways those of the opponent.

Itzabitza Sabi Games [top]

This award winning game has drawings truly come to life. Kids help their Sketchy by using Living Ink - a unique drawing recognition system – to draw one-of-a kind interactive objects that form the centerpiece of the game's action. Draw a house and watch the character shrink to fit in the door; draw flames and watch the rocket ship they drew blast off. There's little chance for the player to lose interest. The game provides a totally unique experience every time it is played. Since the environment is created through each player's personal drawings, the possibilities are as endless and fantastic as the player’s imagination. The game comes with five themed playsets – "Home Sweet Home", "Let’s go Camping", "Play in Space", "A Farm Life", and perfect for Halloween – "A VERY Scary Haunted House." Players unlock playsets by winning star challenges. It's more than just a fun game. The game has been crafted specifically for early-readers. In ItzaBitza, players who are just learning to read start out having a blast watching the whimsical reactions happen between their drawings and their Sketchy. Then all of a sudden, they need to read to win a star. Or to know what to draw so they can help their Sketchy. Parents will be delighted by the game's ability to enhance their child's self-confidence. Unlike some games that leave younger players frustrated by their difficulty and lack of assistance, it provides features to guide children even when faced with unfamiliar concepts. If an early-reader encounters a new word, it can be read aloud to them with the simple act of hovering the mouse over the word. Through a delightful twist on drawing games, it introduces a new way for kids to game and while they are playing, really important learning is happening. New methods to engage children, discovered during a multi-year research project conducted by Microsoft Corporation, are fused into the game's design, yielding a unique experience that encourages fun and learning.

Aveyond 3: Orbs of Magic Amaranth Games, LLC [top]

This is divided into four chapters, that are downloaded individually with a save game to be transferred from one game to the next. The games can also be played as a stand alone, but that is not recommended, as you miss up several key features this way. Chapter 1 – Lord of Twilight (Jun) This centers on Mel, a thief who steals the wrong heirloom. Unbeknownst to her, Mel is a descendant of Mordred Darkthrop, (an evil sorcerer who plotted to rule the world), and only a Darkthrop can remove the Orbs of Magic from their resting place. Accidentally handing the Orb of Darkness over to a megalomaniac vampire lord, she now has to run for her life and find a way to stop him from using the orb and destroying the light from the surface world. On her journey, Mel meets a prince, Edward, and Stella, a gentle girl of mysterious origin and two old favorites from Aveyond 1, the Vampress Te'ijal and her husband Galahad. Chapter 2 – Gates of Night (Aug) You continue your adventures to find your way to Naylith and have the final (or at least a final) confrontation with the Vampire Lord. Two more people join you too. Lidya, seen in Lord of Twilight. Lidya is a powerful fighter with magical spells. And Ulf, an orcish scholar who you rescue from the orcish prison. Chapter 3 – The Lost Orb (Feb/2010) This game is not a direct continuation of the previous. All items are removed, as are several of the characters because they considered the quest to have ended in The Gates of Night. You gain three new party members named: June, a spell trickster, Yvette, a familiar, and Spook, a thief with a dark secret. Things ended pretty good in chapter 2 but now it seams that Lydia is up to no good. What should have been the most romantic day in Mel’s life (if Edward proposed to her) turns into a nightmare. Having nothing left for her in Thais Mel sets out to find the fourth and final “lost” orb, to prevent it from being used and prevent “The Darkthrop Prophecy” from happening. Chapter 4 – The Darkthrop Prophecy (Dec/2010) Mel has been living Harakauna for the last year after discovering that she had magic when she is finally found by the darklings that now know that she is the prophesied one. Before they can take her, she is rescued by Edward and two scholars from a land far away. They offer her magical training at their academy but she only agrees to go if Edward will train with her. After arriving in Veldarah, she eventually accepts her magic and starts to love it. It all goes well until the attack. They came for her, but almost no one believes her. One unnamed professor wants to meet with her in a lone cabin far out in the woods, and Mel decides to check it out. When it is, unsurprisingly, a trap she is captured by her former nemesis, the former vampire lord. This game differs from the others in that there are two different parties. Mel’s and Stella. Players swap between them, but they never meet and merge. Players therefore have two completely different inventories.

Dragon Age Journeys Bioware / Electronic Arts [top]

This is a 2-D flash game set in the Dragon Age universe. It is a single player game, told in three chapters. It features classes, spells, talents, sound effects and music taken directly from Dragon Age: Origins. You start out by making a character, choosing your appearance, sex, race, name, and class. The game autosaves after events and every battle, letting you resume play instantly whenever you like. Combat plays out in turns on a grid, with you, your allies, and your enemies attacking in turns. It's explained via a helpful tutorial that pops up when needed, but it essentially boils down to selecting your actions via the menu at the bottom, moving within the green area you can reach, and clicking on enemies to attack them. But what's interesting is that it can take such simple mechanics and still make battles feel strategic. Enemies use special abilities, place traps, and try to flank you. You can even use the terrain to your advantage, hiding behind obstacles to obscure yourself from ranged attackers. There are treasures to find, skills to upgrade, quests to complete, and more.

Dragon Age: Origins BioWare Edmonton / Electronic Arts [top]

This rpg utilizes a new game engine named Eclipse and has a toolset for creation of fan-made content, though it is a single-player only game. Famed developer BioWare made this as a 'spiritual successor' to the Baldur's Gate series, though it is not based on Dungeons & Dragons. It's a 'dark heroic fantasy' story told on an epic scale with mature themes. The player will begin his or her journey in one of the six Origin stories which serve as an introductory point for the players and present the world from their personal point of view. The Origin chosen determines who the character is and by the same measure how NPCs (party and non-party) will react to the player. Players get to choose between the Human Noble, the Human/Elf Mage, the City Elf, the Dalish Elf, the Dwarf Commoner and the Dwarf Nobleman. Although each character eventually becomes a Grey Warden and follows the same general storyline, there are six opening scenarios that provide a unique origin and details how your chosen warrior comes to join up with the only force able to fight back the evil Darkspawn. As with any Western RPG, personalization is important. The character creation mode greets new players, and thankfully the options are deep without being overwhelming. As well as choosing a character, players can also choose a class. Some classes are restricted to certain characters, and as the game progresses, these classes can be further specialized. For instance, a Mage might eventually work his way toward becoming a feared and deadly Blood Mage. The three base classes are Rogue, Warrior and Mage, and each one works as you'd expect, with Rogues able to act as stealthy thieves, Warriors packing a selection of hard-hitting physical attacks and Mages ... well, you know what they do. A free add-on called The Stone Prisoner will add a stone golem character to the player's party from the beginning of the game, unlocking numerous story options. Another free DLC called Blood Armor will provide upgraded protection for players wishing to deflect the swords and missiles of opponents in the game. As an added bonus, it will also be wearable in Mass Effect 2, due out early next year.

Inquisitor CINEMAX [top]

Initially a Czech rpg, an English version finally was released in 2012. Ultherst was once a peaceful, God-fearing land until the Three Scourges of God came to pass as foretold by Saint Ezekiel, one of the twelve followers of the First Prophet. First came the famine that devasted the populace. Next came the plague that added more unfortunate souls on Death’s abacus. Finally came the great rain of fire, and death fell down on sinner and innocent alike, blood flooding the streets in place of water. The people, in their desperation, turned away from the Holy Mother Church and delved deep into pagan decadence or succumbed to the temptation of the Devil. You have been charged with the office of Inquisitor. It is up to you to investigate crimes against the one true faith and root out heresy--using any and all means necessary. Inquisitor is a unique blend of action-oriented combat with a deep and involving tale of betrayal, torture, madness, and infernal damnation. Put your wits to the test as you collect evidence against possible heretics and put them to trial once they have been charged. Use the might of the Inquisition to extract a confession from your subjects, but be warned, use your power wisely or you will face the consequences. Three character classes--Paladin, Priest, and Thief--each with his own unique and independent story. Wield the power of the Inquisition as you arrest heretics; use a variety of tools-such as the iron maiden, suspension, and the rack-to extract confessions and burn the heretics. A wide, open-ended world for you to explore and exploit as you see fit. More than 200 weapons, 80 spells, and 7 schools of forbidden and allowed magic.

Last Remnant, The Square Enix [top]

This RPG title utilizes the Unreal Engine 3 for a next-gen role-playing experience. In ancient times, mysterious artifacts referred to as Remnants were discovered all over the world. People used these objects for their awesome powers — a choice that eventually began to cause a rift in the world's balance. Equality was replaced by those who ruled and those who were ruled over. War was inevitable. A thousand years later is when this story begins. Rush lives with his sister Irina on secluded Eulam Island, far from the power struggles for Remnants that are occurring back on the mainland. However, this peaceful life is shattered when his sister is suddenly kidnapped by a mysterious group of soldiers right before his eyes. He immediately sets off after them, unaware of the evils of the outside world but determined to find his sister at any cost. Large-scale battles come to life as players command unions of soldiers in an exhilarating new turn-based system – allowing for critical strategic play while enemy forces collide on a highly immersive battlefield rendered with amazing lighting and particle effects. Experience a visually stunning world rich with parched deserts, lush forests and sparkling seas inhabited by four distinct races: mitra, yama, qsiti and sovani. Details can be found throughout the cities — with inhabitants even proudly displaying distinct regional armor. Explore a plethora of cities, each anchored by a massive Remnant that protects the townspeople with a mysterious and great power. The war to possess the powers of the Remnants unravels in this epic saga. Packed with outstanding cinematics and a sweeping soundtrack composed by Tsuyoshi Sekito (FINAL FANTASY VII – Advent Children – and DAWN OF MANA), a remarkable experience awaits players. In addition, the story experience can be expanded through multiple side quests.

Legends Of Zork Jolt Online Gaming / Activision Publishing, Inc. [top]

This is a casual rpg browser game based on the famous Zork adventure universe. An event of such magnitude as to ripple through the multiverses, the economic downturn of 2008/2009 caused havoc in the Quendorian job market, leading to even the vaunted FrobozzCo International laying off reams of traveling salesmen who need to find some way of supporting themselves in the Great Underground Empire. Fortunately for them, a proliferation of monsters throughout the land will both divert their excess labour supply and supply them with loot! What this has amounted to is a tent camp of sorts sprouting up in the open field west of the legendary White House, where would-be adventurers of former divisions of their parent company (ie character classes) gravitate before sallying forth (in classic LORD grinding style, here clicking on limited illustrated menu options rather than employing hotkeys in a Zorkian textmode) into the surrounding woods (and, eventually, much farther-flung territories) to expend their daily allotment of 30 action points in (fully automated) combat against randomly-encountered bugaboos of a difficulty equivalent to the player's current level, give or take one in either direction for weenies and tanks. At regional bases they can upgrade their equipment by spending zorkmids they find after combat (and revenues from automatically-sold loot -- comparisons to Progress Quest also come to mind); also there players can invest skill points, granted upon level advancement after achieving monster-slaying experience point milestones, into buying stat-modifying character skills. Further nuances are measured - a player's encumbrance is limited, forcing them to periodically spend an action point returning to base to unload their loot (and heal up), and players who are slain or run out of actions in the wild lose all un-deposited loot before resuming play the following day. Two more-uncommon features in this game include optional sidekicks for higher-level (25+) characters and group adventuring -- either with friends or computer-selected random bystanders. The game's magic system is divided into three categories (High, Middle, and Low, as in ZGI and as opposed to the classic "frotz" system), and is one of several "one of three" selections (of magic technique, offensive and defensive combat styles, etc) implemented for rock-paper-scissors effect, especially in PVP combat. Further Zorkian connections are maintained through the use of Double Fanucci cards (from Zork Zero) in various combinations for endowing characters with bonuses, as well as the controversial second-tier currency system of coconuts - allowing players who jump through revenue-generating hoops for the game hosts (answering surveys, exposing themselves to advertising, etc. - or just directly making a hard cash donation) to experience gameplay enhancements or "perks". The game was shut down on May 31, 2011.

Lord Of The Rings Online: Siege of Mirkwood Turbine, Inc. [top]

This is the second add-on for The Lord of the Rings Online. The so-called Book 9 consists of 19 chapters in which the player explores Mirkwood with the goal to face the first of the nine Nazgúl in Dol Guldur. The basic gameplay stays the same as in the main game but there are a few improvements. Most noticeably are the overhauled combat system (which is made to be more responsive) and the possibility to craft weapons from the Second and Third Age (up to level 60). The level cap increases from level 60 to 65. Independent from the main game is the new skirmish mode. It can be entered at any time and generates an instance where the player has to solve a mission, e.g. protecting The Prancing Pony from soldiers or fighting against a mighty monster. Before starting it he can set the difficulty and the number of players (overall up to six). If he plays alone bots - the classes can be chosen by the player - help him out. The abilities of these bots can be improved by investing points earned in previous skirmishes - the harder the difficulty the more points. There are eight scenarios included in the release version.

He has access to Elemental Magic which summons creatures to fight for him, he can cast powerful area-of-effect spells and uses Dragon Magic. Besides calling upon dragons to help him in battle, Dragon Magic even allows him to transform himself into a dragon. While in dragon form the Dragon Mage can't use any of his other abilities nor do any of his items influence his stats. In return he becomes a powerful melee fighter with completely new talents including the ability to cast a fireball. The other big addition are the opening of the Crystal Region and the Cursed Forest. The Crystal Region is an artificial hunting ground for the Seraphim that has been opened for every other hero for the first time. Besides other creatures mutated by T-Energy, the ultimate challenge here is the Crystal Phoenix that has yet to be slain. The Cursed Forest on the other hand seems alive but nothing in it is really making it an unwelcoming place for only the best heroes. Other important additions include: Master Hand mode - upon character creation the player decides if he wants to focus on a single aspect and have better regeneration there (with a penalty to the others) or play the traditional way with all aspects having equal base regeneration; Magic Projectiles - each character class with the magic wand talent can now fire magic projectiles with their staff; Unlimited Teleport - the player can now open up the map any time and teleport to any already uncovered portal as well as to the current active location of his soul-stone; New Camera mode - the camera can now be moved around freely instead of using the pre-defined modes; Smaller additions are the ability to export a Closed.net-character for used in LAN-games or offline, many new items and armor sets and a fifth weapon and talent slot unlocked upon reaching level 20.

Torchlight Runic Games, Inc. [top]

Thick veins of the magical ore Ember lie beneath the streets of Torchlight, and fortune seekers have been flocking to the small mining town since its discovery. To extract the valuable ore, a labyrinth of tunnels has been dug deep into the earth. What the miners don't know, but will soon discover, is that something much more deadly resides beneath. Ruined civilizations, now long forgotten, have hidden horrors no one can even imagine .. and now those horrors are about to surface. It is up to you and your trusty companions to stop the onslaught of monsters and save the town's citizens. Torchlight is a single-player, action, role-playing game in which you play one of 3 character classes: The Destroyer (a warrior), The Alchemist (a spellcaster), or The Vanquisher (a rogue). Each character class has unique weapons and armor and three skill sets. Development of the game is led by Travis Baldree, designer of Fate, and Max Schaefer and Erich Schaefer, co-designers of Diablo and Diablo II, joined by the team that developed Mythos. Although the majority of gameplay is handled in typical Diablo-like fashion (exploring, killing monsters, completing quests, buying & selling, levelling up etc.), there are a few unique features not found in other RPGs. For instance, your character has a private stash for storing excess items. All of your party members also share an additional pack which can be used to transfer items between them. The animal companion you choose at the beginning of the game is more useful than in other RPGs. This pet can wear 2 rings and an amulet, can carry as many items as you can in its own pack, and levels up with experience. Its items can be sold to shopkeepers or shared between the party. You can teach your pet tricks, like fetching dropped items or to cast 2 spells of your choosing. To turn your pet into a vicious fighting monster, feed it fish before a battle. Different fishes found or caught by you in the game have varied effects on your pet. Exploring, fighting and casting are controlled by using both the left and right mouse buttons. Keyboard keys are used for assigning items to quick slots and for accessing the various screens (character sheet, inventory, spells, map etc.) Difficulty settings range from Easy through Very Hard. Graphic options include the ability to switch between Full Screen or a smaller Windowed display, various resolution settings (the highest being 1920 x 1200), shadows, anti-aliasing, and more. The "Render Behind Walls" option allows you to see a silhouette of your character behind obstacles. You can also opt to disable the gore. Most levels are randomly-generated but are diversified so as not to become repetitive. Inside you'll find secret rooms, traps, swinging bridges, levers, shrines, non-monster encounters, and elevation changes. The game features a handy Automap to help you find your way around and tool-tips for getting acquainted with the gameplay.

Venetica Deck 13 / DTP (Digital Entertainment Pool) [top]

From the makers of the Ankh adventures comes this 3D rpg that tells the tale of Scarlett, the secret daughter of Death. It happens that Death isn’t an everlasting skeletal being but a common man elected by council whenever there's a vacancy, and when Victor, the next in line, begins to study necromancy and other evils (more evil than Death? Really?), he is thrown out and an opening is created. Scarlett, upon inheriting her father's powers, is the only person who can defeat the now undead Victor. Venetica follows a fairly linear storyline, but there’s plenty of opportunity to alter Scarlett's progression thanks to branching missions and skill trees which allow you to choose how she develops. Conversations can be directed down whatever route you wish thanks to a comprehensive list of options, and many of the tasks depend on what you say. A revolving day/night cycle is employed to further mix things up. These rooftops are interesting locations in Venetica; the ladders and makeshift bridges give the heavens a surprisingly labyrinthine quality. Winged demons are always on the prowl, but stumble onto the wrong roof and you could find more than you bargained for. Rhythmically tapping the attack button unleashes combo moves, whereas nonsensical hammering will, eventually, lead to her being blocked and countered unless she retreats and rethinks.
