What exactly happens to all the airplanes and sea vessels that disappear in the famed Bermuda Triangle? That may forever remain a mystery, but you can find out for yourself what happens to one in particular in Yak & Co's isometric adventure, Down in Bermuda.
While the thought of world-ending cataclysm may have some looking to the stars for possible salvation, what would happen when the time finally came to return back home if such an escape occurred? This is the question posed by the upcoming indie British adventure, Woodsalt.
Even pirating is getting into the spirit of equal opportunity these days. Following in the footsteps of Nelly Cootalot comes Anya Ophelia Morgan, the latest lady pirate to take to the high seas in indie German developer kitty wants pizza's upcoming point-and-click adventure, Orbis Fugae.
Hard as it is to believe in this era of excessive helicopter parenting, children used to be able to run and play unattended, with all the potential excitement and hazards that entailed. You'll be able to experience that freedom for yourself soon enough in indie Israeli developer HappyJuice Games' upcoming fantasy adventure, Lost in Play.
Imagine yourself trapped in a ghetto, where every day is a struggle for mere survival. Though you dream of a better life, escape is far from a certainty and your destination is a faraway land regarded only as a myth. This is the premise of AIDA, a live-action FMV adventure by Punch Punk Games to be released next year.
Imagine taking the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale and the rich fantasy world of Oz, reimagining both and blending them together, and then topping it off with a Groundhog Day-style time-looping mechanic. The result would probably be something like Scarlet Hood and the Wicked Wood, an upcoming fantasy puzzle adventure from Devespresso Games, the creators of The Coma series.
Home may be where the heart is, but it’s also where you can sometimes find inspiration for the oddest, most peculiar stories to tell. Indie Canadian developer Chad Comeau, under the studio moniker Fring Frang Games, took this notion to heart when he set out to create the newly released Clarevoyance, a point-and-click adventure game inspired by and set in his native Acadian region of Clare, Nova Scotia.
Over the years we've come to equate Amanita Design with delightfully whimsical feel-good adventures. It's ironic, then, that their cheeriest sounding title yet is poised to be one of the indie Czech developer's darkest in the upcoming Happy Game.
Adventure is everywhere if you’re willing to look for it. You don’t have to be a pirate, a princess, or a space explorer to embark on a grand journey; if you’re curious, passionate, and willing to get your hands dirty, you can find excitement in even the most laid-back locale, and you might even manage to make the world a little better in the process. That’s the premise behind Alba: A Wildlife Adventure, now available for PC and through Apple Arcade.
There are a disturbing number of things that threaten the future of humanity: climate disaster, nuclear war, and of course the spectre of deadly pandemics. But it's the one we're not prepared for that's ultimately going to get us: a vengeful bear. At least, it is if indie developer Kilzemol Games' upcoming comedy sci-fi adventure The Koala Rebellion is to be believed.
As 2020 has taught us, everything can change in a hurry. And yet despite such hardships, some things never change. The next adventure in the long-running Carol Reed saga will represent a little bit of both when Quarantine Diary is released early next year.
While shows like The Walking Dead and the films of George Romero remain as popular as ever, zombies themselves don’t get a lot of respect. An Ash Williams or a Shaun Riley may persist in the public consciousness, but there’s little thought spared for the thousands of anonymous ghouls they had to headshot, decapitate and smash across the face to get there. It’s this injustice that Surprised Monkey Studio looks to correct with their first game, the retro-styled Surviving the Humans, which is now seeking funds on Kickstarter.
Story-driven point-and-click pixel art adventures set in and around New Orleans have a fine track record, so why not go back to the well once again? That's precisely what indie developer Geography of Robots plans to do with its upcoming mystery Norco: Faraway Lights.
Commercial text adventures may have largely gone the way of old gaming devices like the Amiga, Game Boy and Atari ST, but with the recent release of indie developer Hugo Labrande's Tristam Island, you can enjoy a nostalgic return to both.
Certain objects of importance to us are often able to trigger memories upon sight, but what if those objects actually possessed memories of their own that could be tapped into? This is the premise behind indie developer hako life's newly released Unreal Life.
