Adventure games tend to be solo experiences, but sometimes it's nice (and occasionally even necessary) to have some help, even if you don't ever see your partner. One such dual-character puzzler is coming soon to PC and consoles in the form of A Brave Plan's The Bradwell Conspiracy.
Indigenous voices are significantly underrepresented in the gaming industry, but indie developer Achimostawinan Games and a group of supportive Kickstarter backers are hoping to change that with the upcoming cybernoir mystery, Hill Agency: PURITY&decay.

Adventure games are slow-paced by their very nature, with no big hurry to get where you're going. But what if you're going nowhere?

You'd think life on a "fish-planet" would be as serene as it gets, but players will have their work cut out for them to keep it that way when indie developer Fireart Games releases their debut adventure TOHU early next year.
Piloting a spacecraft would be difficult under the best of circumstances, but pilot an alien ship with enemies in pursuit? That is the challenge that awaits in Andrea Interguglielmi's Nauticrawl, a genre-defying adventure coming to PC next month.

It's been over six years since the second installment of 3f Interactive's Reversion was released, and it may have appeared that the episodic point-and-click adventure was never to be finished.
