The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow – Cave Doom

Posted in PC, Point & Click Adventure with tags , on 05 October 2022 by Thomas

The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow is a point & click adventure game by Cloak and Dagger Games. It’s set in Britain during the olden times with a story steeped in British folklore, faintly sprinkled by Lovecraft. Now, I don’t want to say everything occult, otherworldly must be Lovecraft, and I wouldn’t say this was inspired by it either, until the end that is. For it’s only a small segment of the game, time-wise, but it’s a huge part of the narrative – so, there we go.

Blood Nova – Demo Impressions

Posted in PC, Point & Click Adventure with tags on 22 August 2022 by Thomas

Blood Nova is a point and click adventure game by the developers Cosmic Void/Joseph Gardner. Its setting is the far future of mankind, which gave me a modest “Foundation” vibe. The backdrop and graphics set the mysterious tone splendidly, but the somewhat quirky zoomer: ish dialogue that all modern entertainment media seem to be written in did take me out of it from time to time. Watch any superhero movie, or the latest Star Wars to understand what I’m talking about.

Dreams in the Witch House – Demo Impressions

Dreams in the Witch House is a point & click/RPG made by the Finnish developers Atom Brain Games. It’s based on the Lovecraft mythos, and in my personal opinion they absolutely nail the feeling from the stories – which of course has the effect of enteral suffering on me since I now have to wait patiently for the full release.

Secret Files: Tunguska – One Man Show Nina

Posted in PC, Point & Click Adventure with tags , on 27 June 2022 by Thomas

Secret Files: Tunguska is a 3D point-and-click adventure made by the German developers Fusionsphere Systems Ltd (See addendum at the bottom of the post for correction). From what I can tell, this company does not exist anymore since their website is down, and the fact that they haven’t made anything since 2013. It’s a real shame too, going by this title at least, but as things go in this industry, either you produce constant hits or you are out the door fairly quick – unless you are BioWare.

Broken Pieces – Demo Impressions

Posted in PC, Point & Click Adventure with tags on 15 June 2022 by Thomas

Broken Pieces is a third-person horror/adventure, in the style of the old Resident Evil games, with set camera angles, inventory management and popping monsters with your pistol. It’s being developed by the French team Elseware Experience. The camera angles isn’t as static as in the old survival horror games, and you don’t have to suffer tank-controls (even if I like those controls personally), but the experience feels old-school nonetheless in the short demo provided by Steam.
