The creators of The Unholy Society ask what would happen if "The Exorcist, Preacher, and Constantine had a baby?" We're hoping they mean figuratively, but in any case we'll find out later this year when CAT-astrophe Games releases their debut adventure on PC and consoles.
Pulse Entertainment's Bad Mojo showed us in 1996 that being an insect can be a lot fun (in a game, that is). Now indie Polish developer Ovid Works is revisiting the concept in their upcoming Kafka-esque environmental puzzler Metamorphosis.
Spike Chunsoft has developed quite a reputation in recent years for quirky, riveting Japanese mystery adventures. Next up on their schedule isn't another Danganronpa or Zero Escape installment, but rather an all-new adventure called AI: The Somnium Files, which is due to arrive this summer.
All visual novels, by their very nature, give players a somewhat godlike control over the direction of the story. But WILL: A Wonderful World takes that idea one significant step further, as PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch owners can find out for themselves this spring.
Almost 15 years after the debut of Yume Nikki, and a year since the PC release of the updated reboot called Yume Nikki: Dream Diary, now the cult favourite horror adventure has arrived on Nintendo Switch.
Cyberpunk seems to be making a welcome resurgence in gaming these days. The latest title to delve into a dystopian future of high tech and lowly station is indie developer Insert Disk 22 – at least, they will if they're able to secure the necessary crowdfunding for Born Punk on Kickstarter.
It's a good thing planets revolve in an orbit, because we completely missed Planet RIX-13 on its first pass when it launched in 2017 on PC. Now, however, the short retro-styled sci-fi adventure has come around again, this time on all three major consoles and PlayStation Vita.
The future of point-and-click adventures looks a little more promising today thanks to the announcement of the upcoming The Blind Prophet.
It seems adventure game developers finally got the memo: this genre can be multiplayer too! The latest to venture into still-largely-uncharted territory is a two-player co-operative puzzler from Other Tales Interactive called Tick Tock: A Tale for Two.
Fairy tales warn us to beware wolves in sheep's clothing, so to speak, but what if the wolf just really wants to help correct a fateful mistake? Such is the basis for the upcoming fantasy side-scrolling adventure, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince.
One thing we know for sure about ancient and/or alien civilizations in adventure games: they certainly do love their puzzles! Good thing for us, of course, as we get to follow in their tracks and figure out how everything works. This will be the case once again in indie German developer StickyStoneStudio's upcoming Memorrha.
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.
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'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.
Kickstarter may not be the financial bonanza it once promised to be, but it's still a boon for indie developers like Dystopia Interactive, whose surreal first-person mystery 103 recently received enough crowdfunding support to continue towards its year-end launch target.
