Many adventure games claim to be inspired by Broken Sword, but few if any can do so with as much conviction as indie German developer Radio Silence Studios, whose upcoming The Adventures of Bryan Scott not only seeks to emulate the "depth and charm" of Revolution's acclaimed classic series, but will star the voice of George Stobbart himself, Rolf Saxon, in the lead role.

We've all received a call intended for someone else that somehow made its way to our phone instead. Usually it's kind of a pain, but what if one not only turned out to be a happy accident but actually helped to save the world? In Unknown Number, by newly formed British developer godolphin games, one misdialed call is all it takes to plunge you into the deep waters of environmental activism, battling big oil and dodging the police. Here, in what is being billed as a "first person talker," your voice and your charming personality are your two main weapons, as you take calls, shout, whisper, and even sing your way to victory.
It's hard to move on in the afterlife when your whole family suddenly died under mysterious circumstances, as you'll want to linger a while and see if you can learn what happened.
