Hinterland has come out with what it's calling the first in-game screenshots for its first-person survival game The Long Dark. If that's the case, what were those images we saw before, exactly? No matter. This is a game which...

Micromanage space poop schedules in Cosmonautica

When we think about interstellar travel, our minds often go straight to intense battles with alien warships, exploration of hostile worlds, or cunning diplomacy. We often forget that between all of the action, our heroes sti...

Shelter 2 is a 'spiritual sequel' starring a new species

I liked Shelter as an out-there concept, but as a game, it just couldn't hold my attention. Might and Delight is ditching badgers for its "spiritual sequel," which instead revolves around a lynx mother attempting to raise he...

The Perils of Man brings an adventure across time to iOS photo
The Perils of Man brings an adventure across time to iOS
by Alessandro Fillari

The adventure genre has seen a bit of an upswing in recent times. With Telltale Games and Double Fine's recent efforts helping to revitalize the genre, a new generation of gamers are experiencing a type of game that was once relegated to a niche audience. The adventure genre has also proven to be a natural fit for the mobile space, which sees many ports and recreations of classic titles. But now, we've got brand new title to keep an eye on.

During this year's Game Developers Conference, I got the chance to check out an upcoming adventure title, The Perils of Man, from former LucasArts developer Bill Tiller, who worked on such classic titles as The Dig, Full Throttle, The Curse of Monkey Island, and A Vampyre Story. And this one seeks to recreate and renew the wonder from the genre's past.

Dead Synchronicity is great-looking sci-fi adventure game

I think it's fair to say Kickstarter has given point-'n'-click adventure games a boost, not that the genre really needed it. Dead Synchronicity is a new adventure game from Spanish developer Fictiorama Studios which tells th...

Echo of the Wilds showcases survival and shirtlessness

I have watched the trailer for Echo of the Wilds twice now, and I still do not really know what to make of it. Developer Anthony Case describes it as a "puzzly narrativy adventure," which I can sort of see. The main characte...

Escape from 1954: Alcatraz photo
Escape from 1954: Alcatraz

)

San Francisco is an underused setting in games. I still need to play Driver: San Francisco, but I'm not sure how much it takes advantage of the city.

Daedalic's new adventure game 1954: San Francisco seems to, as you split playtime between Christine, scouring the streets of San Francisco, and her husband, Joe, whose doing a 40 year stint on The Rock.

Meanwhile, there's a large cash sum at stake in this seedy noir. As Joe, you'll have to pull a Clint Eastwood and escape from Alcatraz. As Christine, you can abet your husband's escape or leave him to rot in jail and go shack up with his ex-partner. Damn.

You can pick 1954: Alcatraz up today on Steam. It's even on sale.
