“Never be fooled by what you see on the outside, because on the inside it’s often a different story.” That’s the mantra that the two-man indie South African developer Givit Game Studios would like players to consider this September when they launch Into Eternity, a first-person point-and-click horror adventure that tasks players with exploring a large mysterious island to discover what secrets it hides.
Archeologists tend to dig up ancient artifacts like primitive tools, burial chambers, and even dinosaur bones.

The first day at a new school is always a challenge. It's even more challenging when you keep reliving the same day over and over, Bill Murray style, as you will in indie developer Moloch Media's newly released Mars Underground.
Judgment is coming for living a life of sin, and it doesn't even require God to deliver it – according to indie developer Noam Matam Rotam, at least, in his newly-released psychological horror puzzler Forgiveness.
You'd think saving the world from a creature mystically summoned to our dimension might earn an FBI agent a vacation, but the star of Evil Grog Games' Lovecraftian freeware adventure Curse of the Old Gods is right back at it in an upcoming commercial sequel called The Jester and the Madman, which is currently seeking support through Kickstarter.
The dystopian future of Earth may be a cyberpunk mess in the Neofeud universe, but the future for the series itself is looking pretty darn good with the first details unveiled for Silver Spook Games' upcoming Neofeud 2.

We probably all know what it's like to be on the wrong side of a computer chat with a customer service rep, but soon you'll be able to flip the script and become the specialist on the other end in Dragon Slumber's upcoming Tech Support: Error Unknown.
While many would probably appreciate the benefits of implanting a computer chip in their brains to permanently banish memory loss, others might question the wisdom of allowing such an invasive procedure, especially under the watchful eyes of omnipotent megacorporations.

Many adventures have players saving the world, or at least the day, from the clutches of evil, but the ultimate goal is far more important in indie Norse developer Arik Zurabian's upcoming point-and-click adventure that is currently seeking crowdfunding through Indiegogo and gives a whole new meaning to the term "drinking game."
Who says they don't make 'em like they used to? Sometimes they make 'em exactly like that, as in indie developer SuckerFree Games' newly-released MacVenture-styled horror adventure From Beyond: Prologue.
