Latest reviews for adventure games

Tom Stossno – The Adventures of Bryan Scott

interview Tom Stossno – The Adventures of Bryan Scott

With its release still over a year away, we went digging for some early behind-the-scenes treasures from the highly promising Broken Sword-inspired indie.

Filament

review Filament

This sci-fi puzzler is as proficient at weaving a compelling narrative thread as it is presenting a host of challenging variations on a single wire-based conceit.

The Corruption Within

review The Corruption Within

Although plagued somewhat by its short length, this atmospheric retro-styled slideshow adventure brings out the best of the familiar gothic horror genre.

TOEM

review TOEM

This charming black-and-white isometric photography adventure is sure to make you smile for the precious few hours it takes to reach the end.

Distraint 2

review Distraint 2

Its lack of puzzle challenge is redeemed by a haunting atmosphere and a fearless exploration of dark themes in this atmospheric side-scrolling sequel.

Onirike

review Nemezis: Mysterious Journey III

Detalion's series revival is a visual delight, but enjoyment is regularly opposed by a confusing story, cumbersome interface and poor puzzles.

review Death Off the Cuff – Remastered

Now with music and illustrations, this charming text adventure has a few fun tricks up its sleeve in subverting the classic whodunit.

Maquette

review Maquette

An impressive recursive puzzle world is modeled in beautiful 3D environments, but it's hard to love the characters driving the underlying romance story.

An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs
