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

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier has some familiar faces

Telltale's The Walking Dead picks back up with another season, A New Frontier, next week. As much as I prefer the old wait-and-see approach for episodic games, the fact that this season will debut with two episodes -- parts I and II of "Ti...   read

Review: Demetrios: The Big Cynical Adventure

There’s something admirable about a single person creating a work of art. Be it a film, a song, a piece of animation, or a video game, you have to respect the vision and work ethic of these individuals who do by themselves what teams ...   read

Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier has a two-part premiere

Announced at The Game Awards, Telltale's season premiere for The Walking Dead: A New Frontier ended up becoming "a little too big to fit in one episode." So, naturally, we're starting off with a two-parter! This new episodic adventure seri...   read

Kathy Rain rides again on iOS and Android, this Nov. 23

Very little surprised me in 2016, at least not in the way Kathy Rain did. It was an exceptional adventure game, a genuine 9/10, accessible for both new players and veterans alike. Even now, it's my personal GOTY. Sadly, that doesn't transl...   read
