Most adventure games have you jumping through proverbial hoops to overcome obstacles, but more and more side-scrollers are asking players to leap literal platforms as well in order to progress. The latest of these is Evan's Remains, a puzzle-platformer with visual novel elements currently raising funds on Kickstarter.
Losing a beloved pet can be a devastating experience, and finding one can be darn near impossible. Not so in Fast Travel Games' upcoming The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets, however, which looks to be a delightfully charming virtual reality rescue experience.
The year 2064 may seem like a long way off, but it's coming – or rather coming back – sooner than you think in Neurodiver, the sequel to MidBoss's retro-styled cyberpunk adventure 2064: Read Only Memories.
Between its Dark Fall and Lost Crown horror series, it's easy to lose track of the various supernatural adventures in production at Darkling Room.

She's baaaaack! Or perhaps she never really went away. Two decades after the groundbreaking The Blair Witch Project popularized the "found footage" horror movie, the eponymous legend is still going strong, this time in the form of Bloober Team's upcoming Blair Witch.
Surreptiously invading people's private lives is kind of an inherent feature in adventure games. But nosing around someone's personal secrets will be even more prevalent in indie Dutch developer Codalyn's upcoming narrative adventure, Privacy.

A young girl who mysteriously disappeared some twelve years ago. A mountaintop observatory standing guard at the edge of the world. An enigmatic journal hinting at an incredible connection between the two, and a wondrous world beyond the boundaries of imagination. These are just the first few breadcrumbs to follow in Coatsink’s newly-released VR adventure, Shadow Point.
Many adventure games involve a voyage of some kind, but the title of indie developer Venturous's upcoming side-scroller leaves no doubt about it.
Most of us are likely familiar with the phenomenon in which someone or something that occupied our thoughts during the day intrudes upon our dreams. However, what if this situation were reversed, and the things we encountered in our dreams the night before were able to affect our waking world? This is the premise behind The Dreamcatcher, an upcoming first-person adventure game currently in development by Shanghai-based Huanlin Games.
The solar system is a big, big place, and most of its many mysteries are far beyond our understanding. Good thing for inquiring minds that it's also caught in an endless time loop in Mobius Digital's newly-released Outer Wilds.
Between interactive TV shows like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch and games like The Complex, it's getting harder and harder to tell the two apart.
