Dedicated to Adventure Games

Adventure Gamers started as a humble fan site in 1998 but grew into one of the premier online magazines of its kind and the largest English-language website devoted to the adventure genre. We specialize in covering computer and video games that focus on puzzle solving within a narrative framework, from the oldest text and graphic adventures (such as Zork, King’s Quest, and Monkey Island) up through today’s upcoming releases (such as REVEIL, Open Roads, Alone in the Dark, and Simon the Sorcerer: Origins).

We offer in-depth reviews and coverage of the latest adventure games, as well as nostalgic retrospectives on the best games from different decades. If you're looking for a complete list of the best adventure games to play in 2024, we update our overview continiously.

What are popular adventure game companies?

There are a number of different adventure game companies that are popular among gamers. Some of the more well-known companies include Telltale Games, Double Fine Productions, Daedalic Entertainment, Don't Nod and Terrible Toybox. Each of these companies has produced some of the most well-known adventure games in history. It can be hard to know where to start when it comes to finding the right adventure game for you, but these companies are a great place to start.

  • Telltale Games, which originally went out of business in 2018, has been relaunched under LCG Entertainment. Their latest adventure, The Expanse: A Telltale Series, immerses players in the exciting universe of The Expanse, allowing them to follow the character Camina Drummer as they explore the dangerous and uncharted edges of The Belt aboard The Artemis. The 'former' Telltale Games released classics such as The Walking Dead, Tales of Monkey Island, Minecraft and Sam & Max.
  • Don't Nod Entertainment has recently released innovative games, such as Jusant, a brand-new action-puzzle climbing game, and Lost Records: Bloom & Rage, a narrative adventure from the creative minds behind Life is Strange. They are well known for their Life is Strange series, which is a episodic adventure game that revolves around the life of a teenage girl.
  • Double Fine Productions is known for their clever and funny adventure games.

  • Terrible Toybox, the studio led by Ron Gilbert, has made a name for itself with its contemporary reinterpretation of classic adventure games. This journey began with Thimbleweed Park, a title that breathed new life into the genre of point-and-click adventure games. Renowned for his wit and distinctive narrative style, Gilbert's influence permeates the studio's portfolio. Their latest offering, Return to Monkey Island, takes players back to the beloved Monkey Island universe, delivering another thrilling adventure filled with humor and nostalgia.

  • Amanita Design, known for their whimsical and artistically unique adventure games, has continued to enchant players around the globe. With titles like the Samorost series, they've carved a niche for themselves in the adventure gaming world, combining stunning visuals with engaging, non-traditional gameplay. Their commitment to creativity and artistic expression is also evident in their other popular titles, including Creaks, which invites players into a mysterious, creature-filled world hidden within the walls of an old mansion.
  • Revolution Software, creators of the iconic Broken Sword series, have long been celebrated for their deep narratives and engaging puzzles. Their legacy in the genre is marked by a blend of historical intrigue and modern storytelling, as seen in their recent release, Beyond a Steel Sky, a sequel that revisits and expands the cyberpunk universe first introduced in 'Beneath a Steel Sky' with contemporary gameplay mechanics and narrative depth.
  • Wadjet Eye Games, a bastion of the classic point-and-click adventure genre, has been instrumental in its revival. Known for games like The Blackwell Series, they blend gripping storytelling with nostalgic gameplay.
