Adventure

An adventure videogame focuses on an interactive story-driven by exploration and puzzle-solving rather than the physical challenge posed by action games.

The Two Guys from Andromeda, creators of the Space Quest adventure games that were big in the 80s and 90s, have reformed as "Guys From Andromeda" and started a Kickstarter campaign to fund their new game.

I'm working with them to develop a set of prototypes during the campaign period. A new one will be released each time they hit $100k, and the first is already available.

Check out the campaign at http://tgakick.com and consider adding your support! Some of the rewards are particularly great, but of course the reward of a new game by these guys is why you're really doing it.

The Last Express on iOS later this year

More good news for Adventure fans. Following the recently kickstarted Double Fine Adventure, another fine alum of the genre, Jordan Mechner, has announced that his seminal cult-favorite, The Last Express, is coming on iOS devices later this year.1

Published by Brøderbund in 1997, The Last Express is a point-and click adventure that put the player on board the Orient Express in July 1914, crossing Europe on the eve of World War I. It pushed the boundaries of interactive narrative in ways that no other game has done before or since.2
