Review: Bulb Boy

I can't get into most adventure games. Hunting for objects and attempting to use them in puzzles is typically too tedious for me to enjoy, and drawn-out narratives between characters with little to no interaction have literally put me to sl...

Review: Machinarium (The Definitive Version)

Machinarium is a game I’ve someone managed to play through numerous times. I gave it a shot after it was free on PlayStation Plus and then grabbed it in a Humble Bundle before acquiring the PS4 copy last year. Somehow, it has become m...

Netflix is basically making a series of Telltale kids games

Taking a page from Telltale's recent book (where it's less of a puzzle adventure game and more just choosing things), Netflix is getting into the modern adventure racket. This just announced this week that they're starting with the children...

Moss is the adventure game PlayStation VR needs

When Polyarc's Moss first debuted during Sony's E3 presser, I was taken aback by it. In-between flashy sports games and hyper aggressive shooters was this calm, collected, cute mouse making its way through the forest. Looking at Polyarc its...

Shame we never got The Thing as a point-and-click adventure

I enjoy a good video game mockup every now and then, and this one is too rich of an idea not to share. Just imagine: John Carpenter's The Thing as a LucasArts-style point-and-click adventure game. Computer Artworks explored The Thing as a ...

Review: Old Man's Journey

I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into when I signed up to review Old Man’s Journey. The name made me think I’d be playing something about a man dying and coming to terms with his life or that I’d be livi...

Review: World to the West

Nintendo has been pretty consistent in making Zelda games every few years. While it normally swap between the 2D and 3D style for each game, you only need to wait about two or three years before getting your hands on another Hylian adventur...

Last year's Batman: Arkham VR is now on Vive and Oculus Rift

As of today, you'll no longer need a PS4 and PlayStation VR to solve puzzles and screw around as the Caped Crusader in Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham VR -- it's now on Steam for Vive and Oculus Rift. The lateness of the PC version is a little...

Review: Full Throttle Remastered

If there's one video game genre I missed out on, it's the point-and-click adventure titles. Hell, my first time with one was when I played Day of the Tentacle Remastered during the beginning of the year, which left me impressed with its Chu...

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...

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 ...

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...
