They Shall Return


Something is
definitely going on here.

Point-and-click style Adventure games seem to be building up toward a small renaissance.

I can't say for certain that this current wave will grow into anything substantial, but it would be good to see it spread out into a sustainable market.

And maybe avoid the ridiculously obtuse puzzles and tedious pixel-hunting that helped drop such games off the radar.

Perhaps we'll see them on the new Nintendo console?

Personally, I deeply miss such adventure games. Full Throttle? The Dig? Where has all the fun gone?

I'm quite interested in the Bones game. Is the demo out?
