AR-K is a episodic point-and-click adventure game being developed by Spanish studio Gato Salvaje. The first is available to try for free, while episode two already written. The studio is turning to Kickstarter for help with funding the remainder of the series and it has brought in a heavyweight name from the world of comics to help.

Greg Rucka has been drafted to write episodes 3-5 of AR-K; Rucka is a great writer who has written for major characters for DC and Marvel, but it's his independent work that I'm the biggest fan of. Series like Whiteout, Stumptown, and especially Queen and Country are some of my favorite comics. Greg has a real great record of writing strong female protagonists, so I'm sure he'd do a great job with Alicia, the main character of AR-K

In addition to Greg Rucka getting on board, Alicia will be voiced by Ash Sroka, best known as the voice of Tali from the Mass Effect trilogy, from episode 2 onwards. There's a neat little trailer on the Kickstarter page which is pretty funny (I didn't watch the Whiteout movie, either, Greg) and at worst, you can always at least play the first chapter before supporting the project, which makes a big difference in my eyes.

Telltale is making a season 3 for The Walking Dead

While we wait for the last episode in season two of The Walking Dead adventure game, Telltale president Kevin Bruner and Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman have gone ahead and confirmed at Comic-Con (and on Twitter) that there will be a third season.   I wonder if that gives clues on how the last episode might play out. more

The Wolf Among Us isn't crying wolf with this accolades trailer

The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in. The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.more
