Feel doubly fine with Adam WarRock's Psychonauts single photo
Feel doubly fine with Adam WarRock's Psychonauts single
by Tony Ponce

Asian sensation Adam WarRock is a pretty chill dude. Our own Tara Long of course loves him to pieces, but it was I who managed to score a brotastic fist bump at last year's Nerdapalooza in Orlando. He's so skilled, he can turn literally anything into hip hop -- hell, he made an entire EP based on the mockumentary show Parks and Recreation! How does he do it?

Adam has offered a new song for exclusive download on Destructoid. Using the beat from the Raz Fresco track "Phony Ones," he whipped up "Basic Braining," an homage to the other Raz, star of Double Fine's Psychonauts. If you've got love for the house that Tim Schafer built, I think you'll enjoy this track.

You can grab "Basic Braining" for free over here. Can ya dig it?

Humble Double Fine Bundle adds a bunch of prototype games

A week ago, the Humble Double Fine Bundle was announced. For some, it was easy to resist; though the games on the list range from decent to great, fans of the studio already owned most, if not all of the titles. Of course th...

Notch backs away from funding Psychonauts 2

The mere possibility of Minecraft creator Notch funding the development of a creatively rewarding yet financially risky game like Psychonauts 2 was wonderful to see play out online, even if the odds were against such an arran...

The grand adventure: Making a comeback photo
The grand adventure: Making a comeback
by Fraser Brown

Check out the first part of the feature, here!

The last few years have been an interesting time for the adventure game genre. After a decade of disappointment, fans finally started to see more and more titles appear and most importantly, become successes. Big changes in the industry, such as the rise of digital distribution and the popularity of episodic content created a more favorable environment to craft these games in. More opportunities for indie developers started to appear as well.

In this, the second part of the feature, I'll be taking a look at what impact these changes have had on the developers and their games as well as what we might be able to expect in the future (hoverboards, hoverboards, hoverboards.) Providing us with words of wisdom are: Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry; Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games; Dave Gilbert, creator of the Blackwell series and founder of developer/publisher, Wadjet Eye Games; and Josh Nuernberger, creator of Gemini Rue.

There's a second part, too!

For almost a decade, I used to hate being an adventure game fan. It meant that I had experienced some of the best writing and most inventive gameplay the medium had to offer, only to have that taken away from me by a market that screamed, "No! We want to shoot more chaps in the groin!" The adventure genre went from being gaming's golden child to being commercially nonviable and generally ignored. On the rare occasion when a new game appeared to remind me why I loved the genre so much in the first place, it would flop, and I'd be left trying to explain to countless people why they were insane for overlooking some truly incredible titles.

That this grim era of desperation seems to have passed us doesn't mean the struggle is over, though. Not at all. I've been lucky enough to get the chance to pick the brains of four helpful gents, each who have had a significant impact on my favorite genre: Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry; Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games; Dave Gilbert, creator of the Blackwell series and founder of developer/publisher Wadjet Eye Games; and Josh Nuernberger, creator of Gemini Rue. They offered their insight into the state of the adventure genre, how it has changed over the years, and what the future holds.

In the first part of this two part feature, I'll be looking back at the history of the genre, its fall from grace and how it started its slow ascent back into the hearts of gamers.

What's this? Double Fine getting its hands on Psychoanuts again? Better alert the Internet. The beloved game has been updated on Steam, and is now a Steam Play title (buy one version, get both) to coincide with the new Mac release, which is also available on the Mac App Store.

The update adds cloud saving (hooray!), achievements, and scales back the difficulty of the Meat Circus. As for the iOS app, it's a free download which offers the Memory Vaults from Psychonauts and audio commentary from Tim Schafer and Scott Campbell.
