Accumulo Nimbus: AGS Gets Digi Distro

As we see one of the more independent-leaning digital distribution services going mainstream, with Impulse being bought by GameStop, I'm very pleased to have noticed that there's a new kid on the scene. Nimbus, created to be a digi-distributor for the archive of Adventure Game Studio games, can do much more believes creator Steve Poulton. He sees no reason why it shouldn't go on to…

The Journey Down: Over The Edge

Released a few months ago, but only just catching my eye (thanks to creator Theo Waern alerting us to it), The Journey Down is one of the most remarkable-looking AGS indie adventures I've seen. Taking five years to put together, it's obviously a true labour of love, this opening chapter telling the tale of gas station owner Bwana and his attempt to rebuild his aeroplane…

ANSWER THE QUESTION! By The Numbers

"I'm not going to take any more of your nonsense! Tell me where the girl is, or so help me I'll file a strongly worded report about you." I'd make an amazing interrogator. No criminal could resist my unique combination of good cop/bad cop into one person: average cop. But enough about my secret police work, this is a post about By The Numbers. It's…

Quest For Quest For Glory II Complete!

Quest For Glory II: Trial By Fire, first came out in 1781. Ever since then (well, really for the last eight years), AGD Interactive have been working for free to update it to the, er, mid 90s, and realise the game in VGA. This may sound like a special kind of madness, but it is in fact just special. You see, Sierra Online remade QFG…

Ben There, Dan That

Looking at you, I'd say what you need just now is an adventure game to play. Too many E3 videos and arguing in comments threads about things that ultimately just don't matter has left you gaunt and frightened. It's okay. It's oooookay. Get yourself some Ben There, Dan That. (I can't bear that they put an exclamation mark at the end of the title, so…

Charlie Foxtrot & The Galaxy Of Tomorrow

The best adventure game I've played in a long time? A freeware AGS adventure called Charlie Foxtrot & The Galaxy of Tomorrow, the current Pick of the Month on the AGS site. This could be taken (accurately) as an indictment of the state of commercial adventures, but I think that would do an injustice to a very capable and entertaining game. From Hatter's Guild Productions,…

5 Days A Stranger In 3D

While Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw is currently rolling around in fame with his superb Zero Punctuation Flash reviews on The Escapist, there's an even better reason to know his name: his AGS adventure games. And best of these are the Trilby games - a series of stories spanning hundreds of years, following the recurring evil ghost of a murdered son, from his initial death all the…

Spoonbeaks Ahoy!

What should you be playing today? Well, it's Knytt Stories, obviously. But let's say you've finished that, what next? Easy: (Shurely TF2? - Ed) Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy!, downloadalised from here. Made by Alasdair Beckett, it's a completely free point and click adventure, created for his girlfriend. Awww. She's a lucky person, as there's clearly a vast amount of love gone into the couple of…
