Hang out with drug addicts and murderers in Blackguards

Straying from its more worn path, Daedalic Entertainment is branching out from adventure games to tackle the world of turn-based RPGs in Blackguards. Set in the land of Aventuria, the setting of The Dark Eye: Chains of S...

Daedalic's new adventure game, Memoria, looks gorgeous

Indie adventure developer Daedalic is returning to Aventuria, the setting of last year's sumptuous, yet sometimes frustrating The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, with Memoria. If it's anything like the previous installment, it p...

Night of the Rabbit has pug in it, so it's probably good

Not since Spelunky have I been so excited for a game featuring a pug. The Night of the Rabbit is Daedelic's (Deponia series, Harvey's New Eyes) latest adventure epic and a welcome return to comedic fantasy after the underwhe...

Review: A New Beginning: Final Cut photo
Review: A New Beginning: Final Cut
by Fraser Brown

I've just saved the planet, and I couldn't be less enthused about it. A New Beginning is a self-styled eco-thriller with a spot of time travel and science fiction thrown in for good measure. It launched in Europe a couple of years ago, but more recently it received the translation treatment and was added to Steam in the form of a new version, Final Cut. 

This final version doesn't exactly live up to the name, unfortunately, and clearly needed a lot more work. 2012 was a pretty wonderful year for the adventure genre, and this only makes the title's glaring flaws all the more obvious and hard to swallow. There are occasional bright spots to be found within it, however, though it's unlikely they will help anyone to overlook the numerous faults.

Review: Chaos on Deponia photo
Review: Chaos on Deponia
by Allistair Pinsof

Deponia ended right when things were getting good, and so that’s where Chaos on Deponia begins. Despite the first reaching the West in January -- or August, really, for us Steam-lovin’ folks -- a full, bona fide sequel is already upon us.

Even though the game features new characters, locations, and many improvements over the original, there are some nagging issues that keep Chaos on Deponia from being what the previous entry hinted the series could become.

Take a peek at Chaos on Deponia, coming Nov. 6

Daedalic's charming adventure series Deponia is making a return next month. Yeah, I had no idea either. The game is being labeled a sequel -- not a chapter -- even though the last one came out only two months ago. The above ...

Review: Deponia
by Allistair Pinsof

LucasArts or Sierra: You could like both, but, more often than not, people tended to prefer one over the other in the golden age of adventure games. Though King’s Quest VI was my introduction to the genre (and the Windows operating system it was bundled with), Maniac Mansion, The Secret of Monkey Island series, and Full Throttle were the games I obsessed over and showed to visiting friends at any opportunity.

Daedalic Entertainment began as an interesting experiment but has quickly become one of the most recognizable names in modern adventure games, releasing The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav nearly a month ago and cult favorite The Whispered World a while before that. Its recent titles dealt with heavy subject matter and dark fantasy worlds that feel closer to Sierra’s flagship series. Yet, Daedalic got its start with silly, colorful games that imitated LucasArts. Deponia is the developer’s return to this style of adventure.

Although it doesn’t hold up to LucasArt’s best, Deponia is a reminder of why some of us loved those games so much more than their contemporaries.

E3: Daedalic and the return of the classic adventure game photo
E3: Daedalic and the return of the classic adventure game
by Chad Concelmo

One of my favorite things to do at E3 is visit the smaller publisher and developers and try out their games. Usually creative and made with such a large amount of heart, the smaller games at E3 are always a breath of fresh air.

This year, my favorite stop with a publisher-that-is-not-EA was Daedalic Entertainment, a German-based company that loves to make graphic point-and-click adventure games. You may have heard of and played some of their older titles like The Whispered World.

The new games they had to show off were right up my alley.

GC 10: Talking retro with Daedalic

Growing up in the hands of Loom and Day of the Tentacle, my heart always beats higher whenever I hear about a new point and click adventure coming out. One could say that Daedalic is like a dinosaur with lasers coming out of...

New screenshots of Daedelic's Whispering World look surprisingly good

It's been quite some time since I've ventured into PC gaming territory, but adventure games of the fantasy variety have a way of tugging at my heartstrings. Throw in a jester on an epic journey to discover the meaning of life...

Leipzig GC 2007: A New Beginning

I've been ranting about the need for a resurgence in point and click adventures for a good while now. The genre's been forsaken as unfashionable for far too long, and in this Wii and DS-dominated climate, there's absolutely n...
