Silence offers a captivating mix of innocent delight layered over an undercurrent of wistful sadness, wrapped up in lovely art and music. The story could have done with a bit more flesh on its bones, but it’s filled with nuance and heart.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

Newcomers need not apply, but fans of the Danganronpa series are in for a treat, as the story and characters are among the best we’ve seen, while the gameplay introduces just enough tweaks to keep things interesting.

Detective Gallo

Detective Gallo

Detective Gallo is a comic-noir point-and-click adventure starring a grumpy, sarcastic rooster as he tries to solve a case of plant destruction. What’s not to like? Except maybe that there’s not more of it.

What are (point and click) adventure games?

Adventure games are all about stories, exploring worlds and solving puzzles. Adventure games focus on puzzle solving within a narrative framework, generally with few or no action elements. Other popular names for this genre are “graphic adventure” or “point and click adventure”, but these represent only part of a much broader, diverse range of games.
