As far as very recent games go, I think Metal Dead (http://www.adventuregamers.com/article/id,1410) is the closest in atmosphere and pacing to Maniac Mansion. It's also just really good. Another...

I finished Yesterday in about five hours. A good game, with a story that turned out to be better than I thought; though it did feel like a scaled back version of what it could have been, with an...

You could try Metal Dead. Very Tim Schaffer-esque. Also very cheap.

I am aware that using 3D Studio Max is not a valid comparison to playing a game in the same manner that watching security footage of a gas station is not comparable to watching Citizen Kane. That's...

You see, it is my belief that the simple act of being able to navigate a simulated environment in an implied perspective, with the goal (however random) of triggering hotspots, is what qualifies Dear...

Not to further the argument, but to clarify on my own belief: the mechanics in Dear Esther are still gameplay, and thus it qualifies as interactive. It may not be as dynamic as Canabalt, or maybe...

I think there is a line of abstraction one would have to cross in order to lump linear point-and-click gameplay into the same category as the page-turning of a book. Our difference of opinion forks...

Hm, yeah, I wasn't using semantics as an attempt to cloud the discussion. I sorta wandered into this argument halfway, and the argument happened to be about what qualifies as interactive.

I am of the belief that all games, by their very nature, are interactive. Even the imitation of interactivity falls under the category of interactive. This is because games rely on the player to be...

I agree. Black Mirror 3 was dull and seemingly overlong. I still enjoyed it, but that was due to the fact that I became emotionally invested in the story thanks to the previous games, and so my...

The strange thing is that whenever someone makes an innovative PC adventure game, it tends to not do so well commercially. Pandora Directive, Last Express, Grim Fandango. The only exception seems to...

I recently heard of this game through IndieGames.com, so I guess its been getting a lot of recent coverage lately.

It does indeed look amazing, and could easily be the next Gemini Rue. Science...

The game looks as polished as those recent remasters of Monkey Island. My only issue with the game is that it looks like it'll stick with the old SCUMM interface. While that's great for purists and...

I think I see what you mean about raising the bar. The guy who's making Stasis is pretty insane doing all that himself while working a full time job, and yeah, I hope he pulls it off. That sort of...

About how long did production take on the original release of Chapter 1? I recall seeing coverage on various sites about it, and for some reason I assumed it took you about one year to make...

The game is looking amazing, and I can't wait to play this again with higher resolution graphics. I think the original first chapter already ranks up there with those LucasArts classics.

"Graphics do matter. But they should not."

A conundrum. But I agree with the ethics behind it, that graphics--in principle--should not matter. This means that if I do pass on a game because of...
