Excerpt: There are hardly any sci-fi fans who have not heard of Doctor Who. Created originally as a television series by BBC in 1963, Doctor Who is now the longest (though not continuous) running sci-fi television show of all time.
Excerpt: Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure is the sixth game in the Tex Murphy series created by Chris Jones and marks the return of this beloved series after a 16-year hiatus. Based on the novel Tex Murphy and the Tesla Effect penned by Aaron Conners, the game's story picks up after the cliffhanger...
Summary: If there was one genre of game that really needed a Kickstarter shot in the arm, it was the Full Motion Video adventure game. Point-'n'-click adventure games were doing just fine, pre- Double Fine Adventure but the legacy of FMV games was a technological dead end.
Excerpt: What's small, yellow and likes to eat small dots? Pacman of course! Now he's back again, in 3D and stronger then ever(?). This time some larger Pacman wannabe has crushed a holy ball that protects Pacman and his friend s.k earth from evilness and so on...
Excerpt: Rideon, Inc.'s Adventure Bar Story and I should have been a match made in RPG/simulation heaven. On the surface it has two main delights that I enjoy: shop simulation and pub grub. The idea of running your own tavern or bar in an RPG is seldom attempted, and if it is, they rarely cross the pond.
Excerpt: Penguins usually can't fly but in this game you will definitely change that. The Penguins jump off a rock and the Yeti has to smack them at the right time. You will learn how to throw the Penguins as far as possible.
Excerpt: PopCap Games has produced more than its fair share of addictive puzzle games. The company's newest release, Bookworm Adventures: Volume 2 , started out by doing enough things right that I immediately found myself sucked into the experience.
Summary: If fast cars, intense competition, and thrilling bumper-to-bumper action are your idea of a rollicking good time, Cabela's 4x4 Off-Road Adventure 3 might not be for you. In fact, the game actually penalizes speed.
