Chapter 4 of ‘Agent A’ Releases December 7th and It’s Huge

Agent A: A puzzle in disguise By: Yak & Co. Yak & Co's stylish spy adventure game, Agent A, released back in 2015, but that was only the first two chapters. I was still very impressed with what I saw and couldn't wait for the rest of the game. Last year, we got another chapter, Ruby's Trap, that packed a lot of puzzles into a small space, almost like a room escape game. I enjoyed it quite a bit, but it was over too fast and left me eager for more. Well, Yak & Co. have been hard at work over these Read more [...]

‘Veritas’ is Glitch Games’ Next Point-and-Click Adventure

A few days ago, I posted a story about how I overlooked but then rediscovered a website created by Glitch Games to tease their next game. You can read that here if you haven't yet. Details of the new game weren't revealed yet. Instead, a fake company called Veritas Industries that has its foot in every aspect of, well...everything, said it was looking for human subjects for its Insomnium project. I wrongly assumed the game would be named Insomnium. It's actually called Veritas, and you play as Read more [...]

Glitch Games Sort of Announced Their Next Game

I was browsing my Twitter feed today with my morning coffee and had an odd conversation with Graham Ranson, one half of Glitch Games. He said I might have already seen one of their next games without realizing it. I thought it was strange, but I didn't pry just yet. https://twitter.com/GrahamRanson/status/927883974323601408 I continued about my day, playing some Starman, which I highly recommend, by the way. A short time later, I see a tweet from Glitch Games about how they got no responses to Read more [...]

‘Stephen’s Sausage Roll’-Inspired ‘Campfire Cooking’ Releasing This October

If I got a dime every time someone told me to play Stephen Lavelle's puzzle game, Stephen's Sausage Roll, I'd have...about a dollar? But seriously, people keep recommending it and I keep responding "but it's not on iOS." There are some shorter narrative games I've played on my PC over the last few years, such as The Stanley Parable. But I have so many games on my iPad and iPhone and there's very little that can make me give up my comfy touchscreen and couch to be bent over a keyboard and mouse at Read more [...]

Thimbleweed Park is Out Now on iOS and Has Won Me Over

Thimbleweed Park By: Terrible Toybox (Ron Gilbert) I'm not going to mince words. When I first heard about and saw screenshots of Ron Gilbert's Thimbleweed Park, I had some excitement mixed with dread. Dread that it would mimic old retro games to a point that wouldn't be enjoyable for me. I'm very sensitive about games wasting my time, and a list of action verbs on the screen was not that appealing to me. I didn't grow up on LucasArts games. The point-and-click adventures I played were those Read more [...]
