Five for Five – Detective Gallo

Five for Five – Detective Gallo

Yesterday, our Five for Five series kicked off with a Q&A with the brothers De Angelis, the duo behind Detective Gallo, a point-and-click noir adventure with a sense of humour. Oh, and a bird as the protagonist and a devastating multiple plant murder to solve.

Tormentum: Dark Sorrow – The Verdict

Tormentum: Dark Sorrow – The Verdict

There’s no denying it, the stand out attribute of Tormentum: Dark Sorrow is the brilliantly twisted artwork that fills this dark fantasy world with it’s unusual beings, scarred landscapes and hauntingly attractive design. In fact if it wasn’t for the incredible amounts of artwork, Tormentum would lose a lot of its character, however disturbing that character really is!

Goodbye Deponia – The Verdict

Goodbye Deponia – The Verdict

Rufus is one of those combustible characters that try as he might, can’t help but cause chaos at the best of times. This characterisation combined with Deponia‘s off-the-wall humour has seen Rufus in quite a few predicaments throughout his adventures. It’s these moments of picturesque hilarity that mould the Deponia games from being simply funny, to hilariously memorable.

Unlock Your Inner Child

Unlock Your Inner Child

Despite all the spam, copy-paste PR announcements and completely irrelevant information we receive in the Reticule’s inbox, every now and then something truly exciting will turn up. Tonight, just when I was considering turning in for the evening, a little gem landed on our doorstep in the form of The Inner World, an absolutely beautiful point and click adventure from Studio Fizbin

Memoria – The Verdict

Memoria – The Verdict

“Somehow I don’t enjoy mindless trial and error like I used to” announces Geron during what I now like to refer to as ‘The Cucumber Incident’, the one and only moment in Memoria where all reasoning and judgement is thrown out the window in place for random guess work and pure luck. To say that there is only one such moment in a ten to twelve hour game built around puzzle solving is a big credit to Daedalic Entertainment.

The Night of the Rabbit – The Verdict

The Night of the Rabbit – The Verdict

I have to admit that I’m a sucker for a game with a good story, and it’s clear from the get go that The Night of the Rabbit is a game with a good story. From the orchestral music to the intricately hand drawn world, from the solid voice acting performances to the care and attention that has been given to the delivery of the story and its characters.

Richard & Alice – The Verdict

Richard & Alice – The Verdict

There are few things I do well, and cry with dignity is certainly not one of them. The mess, the noise and the looks of sheer terror on the faces of the people around me as I dissolve into my own salty puddle is never good. I played Richard & Alice over the weekend, and my house is now empty. *Sniff*

Kentucky Route Zero: Act 1 – The Verdict

Kentucky Route Zero: Act 1 – The Verdict

A dark night, a delivery to be made and a gas station with no power dominating the scene. It all leaves me very little to go on as Kentucky Route Zero’s first act opens. I knew it was a point and click, I knew it was an indie marvel of some caliber  but nothing prepared me for just how weird my next few hours were going to become.

Or just how pretty this game looks when in motion.

Adventure X – 2012

Adventure X – 2012

I hate travelling. There are few things in life that irritate me more than having to experience the sheer terror that is the British rail network. It is a bizarre realm where ticket prices are dictated by the rolling of dice, departure and arrival times are seemingly at random and your seat reservation is generally shared by at least three other people brandishing the same ticket as you. This weekend however, accompanied by the audio book of Max Brook’s World…

Chaos On Deponia – The Verdict

Chaos On Deponia – The Verdict

Chaos On Deponia is the second part of Daedalic Entertainments point and click adventure trilogy. It sees the return of Rufus as he attempts yet again, to make his way to Elysium and stop the Argonons from destroying the junk planet of Deponia. The problem is that Rufus is a magnet for pandemonium and makes his task infinitely harder by simply being himself.
