Adventure games often have players devising wacky inventions and makeshift solutions, but a more thoughtful approach will be needed in indie developer ustwo games' Assemble with Care, a very personal narrative-driven puzzler now available on PC.

Where does an adventure game end and an RPG begin? It used to be more clear, even in hybrids that attempted to meld the two. But now, thanks to the likes of The Council, Call of Cthulhu and especially last year's Disco Elysium, the line that once separated the two genres has now all but diseappeared. The latest game to walk that nebulous middle ground is Anshar Studios' Gamedec, a cyberpunk roleplaying adventure that is currently seeking funding through Kickstarter.

Sherlock Holmes may have had to make due with his magnifying glass, chemistry lab and keen intellect, but in Playmestudio's upcoming The Signifier, players will have the most advanced technology available to solve a high-profile homicide.

Often adventure games are given PC releases followed later by mobile ports, but in the case of SunRay Games' Mystic Escape: Diary of a Prisoner, that order has been completely reversed with the recent Steam launch of the Japanese-flavoured 3D puzzler.

The words "hard-boiled" and "detective" often hand-in-hand, and they do again (in a slightly different configuration) in indie developer Because Because Games' newly released short comic mystery, Detective Boiled-Hard.

How far would you go if a loved one disappeared, was presumed dead, and the police couldn't find any trace of either victim or culprit? This is the grim premise behind the GlimGames' newly released Beyond This Side.

If you've been jonesing for a bit more Little Nightmares or INSIDE-style puzzle-platforming, look no further than indie developer Smart Studio's newly released Fireflies.

With all the horrible news here on Earth these days, it's tempting to let one's mind wander off to life in outer space. And that's exactly where players will be going later this year (at least virtually) if indie developer Dabster Entertainment is able to secure enough crowdfunding for its upcoming sci-fi adventure, SSTR.

Being a researcher may not be the sexiest kind of detective work, but that's often how the real breaks in a case are discovered. You can find out just how true that is for yourself when indie developer Colestia launches its "conspiracy investigation" A Hand With Many Fingers on PC this spring.

Most adventure games ask you to be sly like a fox, but in Infuse Studio's Spirit of the North you'll have to be a real fox in order to awaken a legendary animal spirit inspired by Nordic folklore.

All adventure games require using one's head to overcome obstacles, but that notion takes on a whole new literal meaning in Helheim Hassle, indie developer Perfectly Paranormal's colourful side-scrolling "body desecrating puzzle-platformer" coming soon to PC and consoles.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is an insidious mental illness that punishes its victims – and those around them – long after the original ordeal has ended. Indie developer Little Guy Games' The Last Sky tackles one man's harrowing attempt to deal with this disease, and has recently been released on Steam Early Access.

There's no shortage of the proverbial white hats and black hats in gaming, but straddling the line squarely between them this summer will be indie developer Limited Games' hacker mystery GREYHAT – A Digital Detective Adventure.

Step aside, Max. There'll soon be a new rabbit investigator in town, and his name is Kurt. He may not have the same name recognition factor just yet, but later this year the noir-styled anthropomorphic detective will appear in his own upcoming adventure, Falcon City.
