No matter what your taste in adventures, chances are there's a new game to suit you either shipping now or already on store shelves in North America.
If comedy and swashbuckling adventure is your thing, Jack Keane should fit the bill. The new adventure from Deck13 (Ankh series) casts players in the title role, whose botched Colonial-era escort mission lands him on the tropical Tooth Island, where he's confronted by the mad scientist Dr. T and his army of trained apes. It's up to Jack and his foe-turned-love interest Amanda to save the British Empire's tea supply and foil the doctor's plans to rule the world. Jack Keane shipped today, and should soon be available in all major North American retailers.
For something a little more current and a lot more serious, Overclocked: A History of Violence may be just the ticket. The complex exploration of the psychological impact of violence puts players in multiple roles, including forensic psychiatrist David McNamara and his five patients. These five young people are all guilty of violent acts but have no memory of recent events, and it's up to players to both unlock and then live out their recollections in reverse chronological order. Overclocked began shipping late last month, and should now be available in all major stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.
