Having cut their teeth as an independent studio with the 2014 Shadowgate remake, now Zojoi has set its sights on an all-new project in the form of Argonus and the Gods of Stone, an "epic first-person adventure" that promises to bring "the gods, monsters and heroes of Greek mythology to life."

Two of the more memorable characters in D'Avekki Studios' The Shapeshifting Detective were the late night radio hosts heard regularly over the airwaves (and later visited when they become instrumental to the story). Knowing a good thing when they see it, the developers have decide to feature the pair a whole lot more as the titular stars of the upcoming spin-off prequel Dark Nights with Poe and Munro.

As the coldest, least populated continent on the planet, Antarctica is known more for its ice and penguins than for international intrigue. That might change soon enough when indie German developer Matze Klein releases his debut adventure, Echidna's Daughter.

LucasArts once made a pretty successful game starring a trio of playable time travelers, and now indie developer Pontus Wittenmark of Warm Kitten is hoping to do the same in the upcoming Justin Wack and the Big Time Hack.

The days of Sierra-style text inputs may be long over for the most part, but indie developer Phil Fortier plans to revive the classic formula once again for his upcoming adventure Cascadia Quest – albeit updated somewhat with modern sensibilities.

The creators of The Unholy Society ask what would happen if "The Exorcist, Preacher, and Constantine had a baby?" We're hoping they mean figuratively, but in any case we'll find out later this year when CAT-astrophe Games releases their debut adventure on PC and consoles.

Carl Jung posited the theory of individuation, in which the subconscious is instrumental in developing our conscious personalities. But what if our inner psyches are tormented by repressed horrors? This is precisely the terrifying scenario facing console gamers this summer when a port of The InnerFriend is released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox following its PC release last year.
