Capitalizing on the ever-increasing "us vs. them" mentality pervading the world today, indie developer PORT 5 has announced their upcoming game KAPIA, an offbeat comedic 3D adventure set in a post-apocalyptic world driven apart by politics and war.
In 1983, a young knight named Graham set out on a quest to recover three magical treasures that were stolen. With Graham now getting a bit long in the tooth (as we discovered in the recent King's Quest reboot), it'll be up to other intrepid explorers to pick up the explorer's mantle. Like the titular hero of Eselmir and the five magical gifts, a 2D point-and-click adventure coming later this year.
While many Lovecraft-inspired tales take us to gloomy northeastern US locales, Naughty Shinobi's upcoming Shadow Over Isolation will take us to sunny Georgia – though no less without its dark hidden secrets behind the bright facade.
Blend a little Sherlock Holmes (Consulting Detective-style), Phoenix Wright, and Dashiell Hammett together, capped off by a Saul Bass poster art influence, and you've got The Wandering Ben's upcoming A Case of Distrust.
You'd be forgiven for thinking Cloak and Dagger Games' upcoming Football Game is actually a sports title, but really it's a retro-styled point-and-click adventure due to arrive later this year.
Ever since Portal blew the door (so to speak) off the physics puzzler sub-genre, there have been no shortage of games seeking to emulate its successful formula. The latest such contender is Time, Space and Matter, a gravity-based sci-fi title coming this summer.
Janitors in spaceships have proven to be a winning combination in the adventure genre before, and indie developer Slow Bros. are hoping it will be again in their upcoming title, Harold Halibut.
Magical books have long been transporting adventure gamers directly into fantastical worlds, and they're poised to do so once again in indie Swedish developer Nellie Johansson's upcoming Bookworms.
It's bad enough starting a new adventure game in a hospital with no memory. It's even worse when you're the lone survivor of a brutal attack on the institution, making you the prime suspect of a tragedy you can't remember. Delving your lost memories and uncovering the truth is at the heart of The Butterfly Sign, trilogy which recently released its second installment.
The Black Cube universe is expanding at an exponential rate that even Einstein couldn't have predicted! That's because there are not one, not two, but THREE new PC games coming from the group known as The Icehouse collective over the course of this year and next, building on the worlds first introduced by French developer Simon Mesnard with ASA: A Space Adventure, and Catyph: The Kunci Experiment.
