It's been good month for headbanging adventure gamers. First Double Fine's Brütal Legend (not an adventure, but hey, it's Double Fine) was finally ported to PC, then The Fullbright Company announced that its 1990s-period exploration adventure Gone Home would feature the music of original Riot Grrrl bands Heavens to Betsy and Bratmobile, as teased in its latest video.

The reality for Myst lovers is that there just haven't been all that many solitary exploration games in recent years.

Crowdfunding may be the way of the future, but it's also a good way to connect with the past in games such as Zotnip's retro sci-fi adventure Bik.
Pay-what-you-want bundles are smart ways to shop no matter how you slice it. But the latest special looks to be even smarter than most, as the "Cerebral Bundle" includes several different adventure games, including the exclusive Necrotic Drift Deluxe.

Summers in Sweden are seasonably warm, but leave it to MDNA Games and amateur detective Carol Reed to put a chill in the air with a long-unsolved murder mystery in Cold Case Summer, now available for purchase.
There's no shortage of Kickstarter campaigns for adventures these days, but time's running out for Nightlight Interactive's supernatural puzzler Whispering Willows.
