Whimsical Point-and-Click Adventure ‘Voodoo Detective’ Releasing on Mobile and PC May 24th (Preview Inside)

Voodoo Detective By: Short Sleeve Studio I've been a fan of point-and-click adventures for many years now, but I have to admit that my enthusiasm for the genre has waned a bit recently. It's been a while since I've played one that truly captured my heart the way the old Broken Sword games did or even the Apple Arcade exclusive, Beyond a Steel Sky. So when Short Sleeve Studio's Voodoo Detective was…

Point-and-Click Adventure ‘Avolteha’ Finally Has a Release Date After 10 Years in Development (Preview Inside)

Avolteha By: Roman Jahn / Picopeople Picopeople's visually striking point-and-click adventure, Avolteha, came to my attention years ago, back when I thought it would be releasing in 2018. I loved the claymation look of it and it reminded me of Amanita Design's games, such as Samorost and Botanicula. But when that date came and went, I admit I forgot all about it. It seems the developers had not, and they'd been working…

Shift Your Perspective in ‘Panmorphia: Awakened,’ Releasing April 28 (Preview Inside)

Panmorphia: Awakened By: LKMAD It's hard to believe that the original Panmorphia released seven years ago. It was LKMAD's first game and what drew me to it was both the art style that incorporated real photos of Cyprus and the prospect of changing into different animals to solve puzzles. I'm a big fan of any game that lets you change perspective to reveal clues that are otherwise invisible. I reviewed Panmorphia positively…

‘Kitty Q’ is an Upcoming Room Escape Game Featuring Schrödinger’s Cat (Preview Inside)

Kitty Q - A Quantum Adventure By: Philipp Stollenmayer / Kamibox These days, it's hard to find someone who hasn't heard of Schrödinger's Cat. Shows like The Big Bang Theory have popularized the thought experiment devised by physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935 that a cat inside a sealed box would be simultaneously dead and alive until you open the box to check. That's the gist of it but there's a lot more…

Machinika Museum By: Plug In Digital / Littlefield Studio About a year ago, I came across a demo of a game called Machinika Museum, which looked inspired by the very popular The Room series. What stood out to me is that it starts with you fixing up a 3D printer so you can use it to replicate certain items. So, for instance, if you need two of the same key, you can…
