Thimbleweed Park was Kickstarted back in 2014 and promised a brand new game in an old genre, a return to the classic point-and-click adventure titles produced by LucasArts in the late '80s and early '90s. The title has an impeccab...   read

Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy series begins next month

Actually, that should be "Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series," but hell if we're gonna cram all that business into an easily scannable headline. The studio's next adventure series starts on Tuesday, April 18 with Tangled ...   read

Review: Rain World

I have a known fondness for difficult games. When applied correctly, adversity and challenge can raise a game to another level. I've gleefully lapped up the absurdities and frustrations of titles like Darkest Dungeon and the Binding of Isaa...   read

Telltale's Batman series could be coming to Switch

Telltale games can be found on toasters and refrigerators these days, so to hear that they're expanding Batman out into the Nintendo Switch isn't surprising at all. It's not a sure thing, but Russian retailer Game Buy and European retailer ...   read

Paradigm is a bizarre and surreal adventure game, and it's heading to PC early next month

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a relative newcomer to the point-and-click adventure game genre. When I was younger, I almost exclusively played games such as Spyro the Dragon, Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank on my family...   read

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U)

Games don’t tend to age as well as entertainment from other media. A movie made 60 years ago, even if it’s not a particularly well-made movie, can be just as enjoyable today as it was when it first hit theaters. There are many v...   read

In some ways, Tim Schafer's Full Throttle fits in better in 2017 than 1995

With a press of the PS4's touchpad, I quickly switched between Full Throttle's visuals from 1995 and what it looks like in the remaster. It's not a new trick -- both Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle had remasters with the same fea...   read

MetaArcade showed me a choose your own adventure creator, and I ruined it

The first major disagreement I ever remember having with my first girlfriend wasn't about jealousy, it wasn't about a missed anniversary, it wasn't even about sex. Instead, it was about a person's natural ability to draw. She was an artist ...   read

The Sexy Brutale is Groundhog Day in a murder-casino

I've had The Sexy Brutale in my periphery for a while, because the name has "sexy" in it, and sex sells, but now that there's a gameplay trailer, there's finally something to go on. And it looks neat. Cool art, nice music; kind of reminds ...   read

King's Quest received a bonus epilogue episode yesterday

I'm a pretty big fan of old-school point-and-click adventure games. Grim Fandango is one of my favorites and I do have fond memories of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle. You'd think I'd have been all over the episodic King's Quest game...   read

The Little Acre might be your cure for the point-and-click blues

Just a father and daughter out to find grandpa. That all sounds simple enough, but it can't actually be that easy. The genre's roots won't allow it. Everything has to be far more obtuse than anyone would ever imagine. The Little Acre ...   read
