Clicking with Hoodwink

What's with all these adventure games cropping up all over the place? It's almost like people still love these games or something. Well, until somebody warns the developers I shall keep enjoying them. The latest potential avenue for my enjoyment is an intriguing title called Hookwinka delicious, almost edible, looking cell-shaded adventure game from E-One Studio.

Apparently it harkens back to the days of yore, when adventure games were played from Lands End to John O'Groats (or Florida to Maine if you'd rather). Pointing and clicking is promised, along with tough puzzles and weird characters. So there's this thief, right? And he's in love with a dame, but a mean ol' corporation is gettin' all up in his business. There are also chocolate loving robots. It's certainly piqued my interest. It's out now exclusively for PC, and is unfortunately exclusive to Origin.

I play videogames for many reasons. Sometimes, I play for the story -- the chance to visit new worlds and live out someone else's life. Other times, it's the sense of competition I find most alluring, or the chance to master ...more

Titan Souls is my PAX Prime 2014 game of show

Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or late...more

Paradigm is a point-'n'-click game starring sloths and mutants

While adventure games are doing as well as ever, there's still not too many that hark back to the classic era games like Day of the Tentacle. They used to be really weird! Jacob Janerka's Paradigm seems to emulate that style...more
