  • Excerpt: Microids has developed some of the best adventure games in recent years. Masterpieces such as Syberia and Post Mortem feature realistic graphics, engaging characters (both for their aesthetics and personalities), and great stories that have become Microids' trademarks. Still Life is no exception. In Still Life, you are taken away into a whirl of heinous murders that seem to have traveled across time and space.

  • Excerpt: Still Life , the latest adventure from The Adventure Company, is sorta-kinda a sequel to 2003’s Post Mortem . Post Mortem took place in Paris in the early 1920’s, and players helped psychic / painter / private investigator Gustav McPherson solve the grisly murder of a married couple in a hotel room. Still Life takes place in modern day Chicago, and you control Gustav’s granddaughter Victoria.

  • Excerpt: Adventure games these days seem to be hit or miss. Some are amazing, and draw you in with atmosphere and an enjoyable storyline. Others just don’t have enough to keep player’s interests, and fade off into the distance. Luckily, Still Life ends up being one of the best in the genre this year, and it would be a shame for adventure game fans to miss out on it.

  • Summary: This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, seeing how the game is published by the appropriately named Adventure Company, but Still Life is an adventure game tailored to the specific needs of established adventure game fans. Think back to good old Gabriel Knight (if the name means anything to you) and you're pretty close to the style and tone that Still Life aims for.
  • Pros: Well-crafted atmosphere, Accessible puzzles
  • Cons: Conventional to a fault, Dated graphics, A little on the short side, with little reason to revisit

  • Excerpt: Ahhh, the venerable graphic adventure (a.k.a. the "point and click") game. This genre of computer game was very popular in the 1980s thanks to pioneering titles such as Zork. LucasArts was the king of the graphic adventure heyday and created such classic titles as Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Sam & Max Hit the Road and many more.
