In real life, it's probably not a smart idea to volunteer for lab experiments shrouded in secrecy at a company known for its shady dealings. In an adventure game, though, it's almost an invitation, begging to be positively RSVPed. Fortunately, we'll have that chance soon enough when Glitch Games releases its latest adventure, Veritas.
A picture is worth a thousand words. This seems to be the motto of Swedish indie developer Space Fox Studio for their successfully crowdfunded point-and-click game Lona: Realm of Colors, coming next summer to PC and mobile devices.
You receive a mysterious message from an unknown sender. Are they really in trouble, or just messing with you? That's the question Daily Magic asks in their mobile-exclusive, real-time narrative adventure Sender Unknown: The Woods.

The lost phone epidemic continues. First it was Sam and Sara, then Laura misplaced hers, and now it's Anna's turn in Kaigan Games' newly-released SIMULACRA.
Warning: Giddiness alert! Read no further if your medical condition cannot withstand uncontrolled giggling, intense befuddlement, and bouts of sheer, unadulterated joy. That's because Amanita Design, the creators of such whimsical classics as Samorost, Machinarium and Botanicula, have just revealed their latest "comedy adventure" named CHUCHEL, which looks like it could be their zaniest game yet.
Despite their inviting touch-screen capabilities, there are disappointingly few point-and-click adventures made for mobile phones and tablets these days other than ports and room-escape titles. One game willing to buck the trend is a comic sci-fi adventure from indie German developer Damian Thater called Argh! Earthlings!
It may still be September, but with fall just around the corner, it's right around that time we start to hear more of black cats, ghosts, and other haunting themes. One of the first off the mark is COCOSOLA's indie puzzle-adventure, The Witch's Isle, newly ported to PC after an earlier launch on mobile devices.
What if you met someone briefly in a bar, only to find out later that the same person you met has completely changed in disturbing ways? This is the basic idea behind Calligram Studios’ Phoenix Springs, an upcoming “neo-noir mystery adventure” which has been successfully funded through Kickstarter.
The name "Paradise" may seem like an odd choice for a game about an island cursed by ten plagues. But then, we wouldn't expect anything other than odd from the creators of the Rusty Lake series that is on track to expand later this year.
Everyone's losing their phones these days! But it's just as well for (adventure game) snoops and voyeurs, as that means there's a new "spiritual successor" to A Normal Lost Phone on its way, called Another Lost Phone: Laura's Story.
Where in the world can a “lazy, good-for-nothing, two-faced guy” be “rewarded with fame, women and power,” not to mention a powerful boost to his political career? According to indie developers Paolo and Andrea Fazzini, collectively known as the Fazz Brothers, it’s in their native Italy in their upcoming point-and-click episodic comedy, BELPAESE.
Fans of point-and-click horror adventures have a new reason to come out of hiding with the announcement of the upcoming Cursed Roots, currently in development by indie Italian studio MastroBros for release later this year.
Hunkering down alone in a bunker may not be everyone's idea of a good time, but it can be when your confinement is filled with puzzles to solve, as is the case in the episodic debut of Glitch Games' latest first-person puzzler, All That Remains.
Clear your calendars, Telltale fans, because there's a LOT of narrative-style adventuring coming your way this year and next. Thanks to today's summer video update, we now know not one, not two, but the next three series coming down the pike, including more Batman, The Walking Dead, and The Wolf Among Us.
