Kyratzes’ The Council Of Crows On Greenlight, The Sea On Steam

If I were to list games that truly feel like labours of love, the Lands of Dream series would probably be the first to come to mind. So I'm excited to see that another portal into its world (or point-and-click adventure, for the uninitiated) is nearing completion.

Freeware Garden: The Matter of the Great Red Dragon

Count on Jonas Kyratzes to play with the tropes detailed in The Hero with a Thousand Faces and deliver a brilliant Twine-powered text adventure that simultaneously examines traditional heroic literature values and revels in retelling the classic save-the-world fantasy tale.

Feature: The Sea is like a divorce lawyer

The Sea Will Claim Everything review

Currently debuting exclusively in the Bundle in a Box, which contains several superb adventure games, The Sea Will Claim Everything is Jonas Kyratzes’ first commercial game. With illustrations by Verena Kyratzes that could happily sit in the kind of book that would have made ten-year old Adam very happy indeed and overflowing with imagination and creativity, it’s wordy and, at times, wonderful, but then there…

Setting Sale: The Adventure Bundle (In A Box)

Adventure, ho! In the sense of heading out, of course, not issuing a demand to an unimaginative lady of the night. This latest pay-more-or-less-what-you-want bundle to hit the net is a pretty good deal, with seven games for the usual pay-more-or-less-what-you want, including Gemini Rue and a brand new offering called The Sea Will Claim Everything, a bit of charity, and an interesting way to…
