Variable State made an impressive debut in 2016 with the surreal interactive drama Virginia. Now the indie British developer is back with another narrative adventure called Last Stop, which is due out on PC and consoles this summer.
As much as we'd all like to stay in touch with loved ones who have passed on, if there's one thing that horror stories have taught us, is that such attempts to connect the realms of the living and the dead never turn out well.

They say you can never go home again, but that's not really true. You CAN go home again ... just beware what you might find when you do. This will certainly be true in I Saw Black Clouds, a new interactive FMV mystery coming soon from Ghost Dog Films.
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.
In the real world, our shadows follow wherever we go. Not necessarily so in dream worlds, however, as is the case in Shady Part of Me, a newly released puzzle-platformer from indie developer Douze Dixièmes.
Adventure games are usually about brains over brawn, but occasionally they let us have both.
