Journey Of A Roach came out a couple of weeks back, and is now rather heavily discounted in Steam’s sale. Here’s wot I think of the peculiar mix of bugs and adventure:

I’m sure everybody goes through a phase when they want the baddies to win. That’s why antiheroes were invented and why Han Solo shot first – if every protagonist was a beaming paladin, impressionable youngsters would flock to the guy with all the best tunes. Blackguards is a turn-based tactical RPG, with a focus on combat, and the characters in the player’s party are a rum bunch. There’s something far worse for them to fight against though and the journey will take them across the Dark Eye setting’s world of Aventuria. The game is on Steam Early Access now and there’s a trailer below.

I spent some time with the pointy, clicky people of Daedalic at Gamescom, watching walkthroughs of the next Deponia and the intriguing turn-based RPG Blackguards. Memoria wasn’t on display and I hadn’t realised, until I watched the launch trailer handily concealed below, that it’s set in The Dark Eye universe, which is where the Blackguards live. I’ll have more to say about the crime-infested RPG in the near future, but now is the time for extremely earnest fantasy adventures. Sample line – “And next, we’ll make you a fairy again”.

I am a remarkably optimistic man. I’ve been reviewing adventure games since 1999, starting approximately 17 minutes after the best in the industry stopped releasing their classics. It’s fair to say I’m frequently disappointed. But I remain ever optimistic that each time this could be the one. And with Daedalic, I am certain they’re going to get there. Will Night Of The Rabbit be the one? Here’s wot I think.

Daedalic feel like an adventure developer just on the edge of finding their hit. The Deponia games had potential, and The Whispered World came so close. So can their latest, The Night Of The Rabbit, be the one that really shines? There’s a trailer now, to give us some idea.

German point-n-clicker Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, which we mentioned last week, has received its first trailer. And thanks to the magic of Mr Charles Vaughn we now have a version of it we can stream. Charles is our hero.
Daedalic plan to release Edna & Harvey in May in Germany, although an English-language version has not been given a date.
