A rocket flies towards a tiny meteor, and a robot and sentient balloon are delivered to its surface. The rocket flies off. A young girl is crying uncontrollably. Several decades later, a friendly alien flies by and notifies the robot that it needs to prove its humanity or its entire race will be scrapped.
This is Doki-Doki Universe. more

For the first reveal of this year's VGX, a Telltale logo showed up on a vending machine, with very Telltale-esque cel-shading. Not so Telltale was the music, which was clearly a Borderlands guitar riff. Yep, Telltale is maki... more

Picking up the axe as Cutis the Lumberjack, a character brought bac... more

Earlier today, Telltale Games' Twitter account Tweeted the above picture, with the text "A familiar face returns in #TheWalkingDead Season Two premiere episode, "All That Remains," releasing this month." For folks that have p... more
Despite the fact that it wasn't on my radar until this week, I'm intrigued by the Kickstarter project The Girl and The Robot, which just hit its Wii U stretch goal today. Billed as "Ghibli meets Ico," the game features a stor... more
After being pestered by the millions of fans who don't want to buy an Xbox One for Swery's upcoming D4, the famed developer re-iterated that the game is in fact an exclusive. Once again speaking to Gaming Bolt, Swery had a fe... more
I've remarked before about how the adventure game genre didn't necessarily need an injection of life but it's no surprise that Kickstarter definitely attracted big names to return to the genre. Moebius is the return to the a... more
Jordan Mechner's The Last Express, a game set on the Orient Express one day before World War I kicks off, has been re-released on Steam as a special Gold Edition, adding new features and improvements to the adventure tit... more

It looks like Zojoi's upcoming Shadowgate reimagining is shaping up to be something real special. It's not every day you see a true point-and-click adventure, and certainly not one that looks as pretty as this. At the helm o... more
I'm still having a difficult time coming to terms with the fact that Myst is 20 years old. That's impossible! What I can believe, however, is that Cyan's new adventure game Obduction has raised its requisite $1.1 million on K... more
The Facebook page for Darks Souls surprised fans by dropping a bunch of screenshots for the upcoming sequel, Dark Souls II. In these pics, we get to see some areas not shown before, many of which show off the coast of the new... more

Videogame genres carry a lot of baggage and not all of it positive. Adventure games have long been praised for their humorous stories and memorable characters but they're just as maligned for their obtuse puzzles and head-scr... more
On the heels of Telltale's announcement of The Walking Dead: Season Two comes a tidbit that describes the performance of the inaugural season -- although, it's a tad misleading. Thus far, the series has sold mo... more

How do you review a game like The Stanley Parable? To describe any one part of it is to risk its ruination. To detail what it has to say about game design, the illusion of choice, and the psychology of the gamer is to tell yo... more
Oh look, it's time for more Indigo Prophecy! This time around, we get racist in a bookstore (again), we play basketball by watching basketball and pressing buttons, we push a wheelchair, and we play Simon Says while cutscenes have all the fun.
Indigo Prophecy thrills us all. more
