There's an eerie juxtaposition between the cutesy top-down visuals of 16-bit Super Nintendo-era games and the kind of scares that only a Japanese horror can deliver. No need to take our word for it, however, as you can see for yourselves once again in the newly-released adventure The Witch's House MV.
Claymation adventures are few and far between, but if all goes well in indie developer Jack King-Spooner's Kickstarter campaign for Sluggish Morss: Pattern Circus, we could be seeing another as soon as early 2020.
The future sure looks a whole lot like our 8-bit past in indie developer Manel García's upcoming The Land of the Seazogs, a very old-school adventure that "combines fantasy, suspense and mystery with touches of humor."
Nazism and occultism have long been linked, and we'll soon get to explore that theory firsthand in indie Argentinian developer Diego Cánepa's upcoming pixel art action-adventure Nine Witches: Family Disruption.
Indie developer Little Angel takes the phrase “it’s a jungle out there” quite literally in their newly-released point-and-click fantasy adventure Abha: Light on the Path.
Is Italy becoming the new Germany? It certainly is becoming something of an unheralded hotbed for adventure games of late. Hard on the heels of an announcement for a new Chronicles of Innsmouth installment comes word of another new upcoming supernatural point-and-click mystery, The Hand of Glory.
PsychoDev's retro-styled Chronicle of Innsmouth proved to be a delightful blend of comedy and horror when it was launched last year. Now the indie Italian developer is back with more Lovecraft-inspired fun in Mountains of Madness, but a little more serious and looking bigger and better than ever. Assuming, that is, that its upcoming Kickstarter is successful.
You never want torment in your life, but there's always room for a little more Tormentum. Good thing, too, as indie Polish developer OhNoo Studio has just announced a sequel to its 2015 dark fantasy point-and-click horror adventure.
You've heard of thinking outside the box? Well, get ready to think inside the cube in Neverout, a Portal-esque puzzler that has just been ported to new platforms.
The best kind of pirate to steal treasure from would seem to be a dead pirate, but beware the curse of purloined loot, as the trio of anthropomorphic stars will find out firsthand (firstpaw?) in the upcoming Striped Swipers: When Booty Calls.
Most adventure games (and games in general) settle for a single camera perspective to portray the action, but why stop at one when you can have two unique points of view? Indie developer Andrew Averkin certainly thinks so, as he plans to offer two ways to play his upcoming sci-fi adventure Utopia Syndrome.
Basements are often inherently scary things. They're dark, cluttered, and sometimes make weird, creepy sounds. But surely something called God's Basement couldn't be all that scary, right? Well, don't be so certain, as you can discover for yourselves in indie developer Erebus's recently-released first-person thriller.
You can always count on gravity and magnetism to follow the laws of nature – at least until they don't, like in the upcoming indie Spanish first-person physics puzzler Relicta.
Light and shadow are often important artistic elements in a game, but they're even more important in NEXT Studio's upcoming Iris.Fall, as they actually make up the core puzzle-solving component as well.
The fear of artificial intelligence is that someday machines will be able to control humans, but at least for a while longer we still have the ability to take over our machines. And we'll need to just that in No Code's upcoming sci-fi thriller Observation, as the fate of an orbiting space station hangs in the balance and it'll be up to a disembodied A.I. to resolve the problem remotely – with a little hands-on help from the player, of course.
