How many traditional adventures were released ten years ago 2006?

2016 was very lucrative for traditional point&clicks;:
ABC Murders, Dog Mendonca & Pizza Boy, Deponia Doomsday, Heaven`s Hope, Her Majesty`s Spiffing, Kathy Rain, The Little Acre, Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Nelly Cootalot, Samorost 3, Shardlight, Yesterday: Origins etc.. Of course all of them aren`t 2D games, but they are traditional and pretty close to point&click; roots.

Also, too early to say what Daedalic will do in the future. Daedalic is active, Wadjet Eye is active, Amanita is active, The Brotherhod is active, Microids is active, Revolution seems to be active (BASS 2 please) and lots of active little indies here and there.

I wouldn`t worry too much.. yet.. Wink

I have to admit that I`m little worried what traditional germanic adventure developer scene has become. I don`t blame Daedalic, because Silence, Devil`s Men, State of Mind and The Pillars of the Earth are all really interesting projects and Daedalic is still really active adventure developer.

But what about:
- Animation Arts… Last games were disappointments and where is Monolith?? Is that project still alive? They used to make games like Secret Files and Lost Horizon..
- Cranberry Productions: Closed in 2012
- House of Tale: Closed in 2010
- KING Art: There is still lots of potential but it seems to me that they are 70-80% rpg developers and 20-30% adventure developers nowadays..

+ Tales, Oxenfree, Candle, Kelvin and the Infamous Machine, The Revenge of Johnny Bonasera, Little Briar Rose, Dark Train, Ghostdream, The Beard in the Mirror, Desiré, Tales of Cosmos, Rusty Lake Roots, Chase: Cold Case Investigations - Distant Memories, Detective Hayseed: Hollywood, The Silver Case, Burly Men at Sea, Paul Pixel: The Awakening, The Last Time, The Tale of Doris and the Dragon, Isoland.

And that’s just going back to September. I don’t think we need to hit the panic button yet.

Disappointed that they are working on a RTS after finishing up Dwarves, unless they can work in 2 projects BoUT3 can take a long time… They should not have finished on a cliffhanger!  Angry

5. But what does it matter? You can tell from the screenshots they are 2D.

Actually there’s never been so many adventure games released in the same year… which makes the genre more difficult to sell than ever.

Oscar, you left out my own adventure game “Demetrios” also released this year, and totally 2D Smile (though first person)

     

Single developer of Demetrios - The BIG Cynical Adventure. Available on PC, iOS, Android, PS4, Xbox One, PS Vita and Nintendo Switch !

Currently working on a new classic adventure mixing genres in “never been seen ways” - Project Brok. Watch me developing it on Twitch! https://www.twitch.tv/cowcatgames

I’m sure I left out lots, I just browsed the last 2 months of new releases and found there were loads of 2D adventures - too many to list! I am meaning to play Demetrios in the future, when I get around to it.

So Advie, have you changed your mind about these games being a rarity? From what I see they are more common than ever.
