Adventure games are traditionally solo affairs, but some involve elements of cooperative puzzle solving between multiple characters to succeed. French developer Monochrome has made this dual-character element the primary gameplay focus in their newly released Tandem: A Tale of Shadows, in which shadows can be platforms and gravity is in the eye of the beholder.

Have you ever dreamed of just packing a bag, heading out and seeing where the road takes you? Put like that, it sounds like a grand, romantic adventure with the freedom of the open road and the wind in your hair. But it's a whole different story if your country is riven by war, and abandoning everything you've ever known in a desperate attempt to make it to the border is your only chance at survival – particularly if you have to ride with all manner of strange and dangerous people to get there. Welcome to the world of DigixArt's Road 96, a newly released "procedurally generated road trip" inspired by the likes of Quentin Tarantino and the Coen Brothers, where your choices open up thousands of possible paths to the border.
Circuses are meant to be fun places that bring joy to all those who visit, but for the traveling players that toil behind the scenes – especially those paraded in public as "freaks" in the early twentieth century – there can be far more tragedy than comedy involved.

Okomotive's surprise 2018 hit FAR: Lone Sails took players across an inhospitable world whose dried-up oceans left behind only the remnants of a once-thriving civilization.

It's been over a decade since Andrew Goulding and Brawsome released the charming canine pirate comedy adventure Jolly Rover, so it was a pleasant surprise when the indie Australian developer announced that a brand new point-and-click project called Warp Frontier would be arriving this year.
