Kelvin And The Infamous Machine Now Time-Travelling

Kelvin and the Infamous Machine [official site] looks like the sort of simple, light, and mildy quirky adventure fit for the summer gaming season. The game stars Kelvin, who's a bit of a dunce. He serves as lab assistant to Dr. Edwin Lupin, who, while once probably a pretty nice guy, goes off the deep end when his time machine (which looks suspiciously like a…

Hands On: Nelly Cootalot – The Fowl Fleet

RPS had barely gotten started when free point-and-click adventure Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy appeared in 2007. I adored it, and it appeared in our first ever advent calendar. So in 2013, when a Kickstarter was announced to fund a full-length sequel, Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet [official site], we demanded you fund it. You did, and with additional funding from snazzily named publishers Application Systems,…

Futuristic Adventure Read Only Memories Is Out Now

Wearing its cyberpunk, retro point-and-click adventure game influence on its neon-stained sleeve, Read Only Memories [official site] wants to send you into the future to become a struggling freelance journalist. Living as one in the present, I can assure you it's not the most glamorous of lifestyles, but if you wish to time travel to Neo-San Franciso 2046AD to find this out for yourself you…

The Preposterous Awesomeness Of Everything Is The Strangest Thing I’ve Seen In A Good Long While

When a game's website leads with the words, "Oh god I hope I finish it before I die and/or go mad," that's a hint. The Preposterous Awesomeness Of Everything [official site] is a point-and-click adventure that returns to the early-90s LucasArts' verb interface, but comparisons to anything else end there. Describing itself as a game about "progress, politics and propulsive nozzles" what it doesn't immediately…

Freeware Garden: Troll Song Verse One

Kick. Grab. Smash. Bite. Roar. Those are the commands you'll find in the Troll Song's SCUMM-like point-and-click interface and they are as apt as they are original, for this is an adventure starring four trolls and trolls simply do not act like your average genre protagonist. They do not push keys from keyholes onto newspapers. They smash doors; fiercely so, when their own species' survival is…

Freeware Garden: Goat Herd and the Gods

Over their long, illustrious history point-and-click adventures have starred everything from wannabe pirates and odd teenagers to private investigators and obnoxious wizards, but never a goat herder. Happily, the aptly named Goat Herd and the Gods has just been released to right this heinous wrong by casting Atl the Aztec goat herder as its protagonist.

Freeware Garden: A Date In The Park

Awww, young love. Can seem so tacky when you are cynical, so naively passionate and yet so very adorable. Even when it involves a slightly obsessive young man and, as in the case of A Date In The Park, pointing-and-clicking at things that include at least one duckling. Then again, this relatively short adventure game does come from the creators of Mudlarks and thus both a decent amount…

Freeware Garden: Petrichor

Éric Chahi's Another World did many things right, but what I believe it really excelled at was conveying the feeling that you were somewhere drastically different. Somewhere otherworldly yet also sensible and at times familiar and this is the exact same sensation Sundae Month's Petrichor manages to re-create.

The Tentacles Of Time: Kelvin And The Infamous Machine

How pleasing that a game about time travel should have such a perfect sense of timing. Kelvin and the Infamous Machine is a point and click adventure in which an inept research assistant must skip through time, inspiring great inventors and artists to fulfil their historical roles. It arrives on Kickstarter shortly after we cast our eyes over Thimbleweed Park, the Lucasarts throwback from the…

Freeware Garden: Mudlarks

Regular nine to five office jobs, well, those that still exist, have never been good enough for Winston. He always wanted to be a mudlarker and, thus, he took it up as a hobby and promptly became the star of Mudlarks. A lovely point-and-click adventure game about mudlarkers larking in the mud and the debatable joys of scavenging the shores of the Thames for old…

Freeware Garden: Donald Dowell

Don't get me wrong, I really do adore those big, ambitious freeware games incredibly kind people make for us, but I simply cannot understand how they manage it. Also, why? Why spend countless hours creating something most people will probably ignore and never get paid for it? Why create a game as big and polished as Donald Dowell and the Ghost of Barker Manor and just…

Freeware Garden: Comedy Quest

If it weren't for the obviously spoileriffic title, I'd have loved to present you with a riddle. A riddle that'd probably go a bit like this: "What looks like an early Sierra adventure, plays like a late Sierra adventure, smells a bit of Lucasarts and does stand up comedy?" I am certain that nobody would have cried "Comedy Quest!" to that and that'd be sad.…

Freeware Garden: Bickadoodle

Freeware Garden searches the corners of the internet to highlight one free game every day. Bickadoodle starts off with an apparently distressed damsel waiting in her tower for a knight to come and do knightly stuff of the typical light fantasy variety. Like, for example, serenade her. Or maybe kill the threatening dragon who has irritatingly just dropped by and seems intent on destroying a perfectly adequate…

ExTemplary: Broken Sword Free At GOG

This doesn’t require a great deal of thought. If you don’t already own the Director’s Cut of Broken Sword, I’d recommend dashing over to Good Old Games in your internet vehicle of choice, for there you can download it for free. GOG are celebrating their six millionth download and this is their way of partying. How jolly nice of them. If you haven’t already played…

Point And Query: Keys Of A Gamespace

Who wants a free game to play? Lots of people. Who wants a free “expressive game” to play? Not quite so many. Did I also mention that it’s French? Well it is. A French expressive game about a man exploring his past to fix his future. It’s called Keys Of A Gamespace and for one glorious moment I thought it might be my new favourite…
