The team at www.graphic-adventure.com has been hard at work on a game known only as GameX right now. It's a point and click adventure in the style of the original Monkey Island, with what looks to be a quirky and entertaining plot. The team has released a 'taster' of the demo, which isn't very playable but will give you an idea of how the final game will play. Adventure Gamers will keep an eye on this promising project! The demo can be downloaded here.

Four Fat Chicks has a review of Mystery of the Nautilus, a Dreamcatcher Myst-clone. How does it fare, you ask? Reviewer Jen felt it was worth a play, if you can put aside any distaste of pixel-hunting. On the other hand, Mike (who provides a little commentary) warns to steer clear, unless you are a complete die-hard adventure fan.

The website started as an initiative between Jouke Koning and Sierra founder Ken Williams. SierraGamers has mirrored certain aspects of our design with permission as a tribute to AdventureGamers.

GamesRadar.com has posted a preview of Broken Sword 3: The Sleeping Dragon, due for release in the third quarter of 2003. Here's a snippet that clearly describes the gameplay we have all been wondering about:Broadly speaking, The Sleeping Dragon's game mechanics separate into three elements; puzzle solving, which will be familiar to all fans of the previous Broken Sword games; exploration and stealth, a feature born out of the introduction of 3D environments; and Revolution's self-termed 'Action Events'. Most similar to Shenmue's QTE system, these are pre-scripted animations performed by the character during cut-scenes, and controlled by the player through a intuitive icon map, unique to each event. Events can be brief - for example, diving out of the way of a car - or longer, during the game's choreographed fight sequences. While perhaps not as freeform as some gamers might want, it maintains the cinematic flow that gave the studio its reputation. Also helpful is the game's distinctive, gently caricatured appearance.Be sure to check out the handful of new screenshots included with the preview.

The American release of Syberia has been bumped to October 15th, due to Dreamcatcher Interactive snagging the publishing rights. Microids, developers of the game, had originally planned to ship in June. The delay is due in part to Dreamcatcher's intention of getting a little advertising out prior to the game's release.

French site SVM has snagged a demo of the upcoming game Syberia. It sizes up at just over 100MB and seems to include a small portion of gameplay from the beginning of the story. Keep in mind that it is a french demo, so it will take some guess work if you don't speak the language.

Christina and I had a meeting with Charles Cecil, managing director of Revolution Software. He showed us some new Broken Sword 3 screens and demo-ed a prototype of Broken Sword 2 for the GBA. Revolution sees the GBA as an ideal platform for adventure games and they may consider more ports in the future, if the Broken Sword ones turn out to be successful. Charles elaborately explained the company's vision and told us a lot about BS3's new interface, which they believe will render the classic point-and-click interface obsolete. We were assured that BS3 would not be an action/adventure. Adventure game purists should be glad to hear that there will be absolutely no guns in the game. The action elements mentioned in the original press release actually refer to exploration-based puzzles and some Shenmue-style action sequences where the player is required to make decisions at certain critical points. Those bits are included purely for dramatic reasons. Charles Cecil had to tell us a lot and it was great fun talking to him. We are definitely convinced that Broken Sword 3 is the most promising adventure game currently on the horizon.
