Escape From Mount Stupid - Point and Click Adventures
- Sep 11, 2012
From Maniac Mansion to Monkey Island, Danny takes a look at history of point and click adventure games.
I loved Broken Sword and it's sequel. Less so the 3rd one but I did not know there were more than the 3, that were out on PS and PS2?
I need to go find these asap!
Great show Danny, love EfMS.
Screw new gamers, long live adventure games. Now, on to my real comments: even though I loved The Walking Dead and its multiple choice that adds up to the same ending gameplay (that was kind weak; not the ending, but getting there), it is nowhere near as hard as the old classics, which is a bit disappointing. Nevertheless, everyone seem to have loved the game, old and new gamers alike, so there you have your answer. BTW, I loved that you showed Ben There, Dan That and Time Gentlemen Please, which are probably my favorite point and click games of all time.
If you guys want to see more and and newer adventure games then your best bet is voting for them on kickstarter.
Going to leave you guys with a few I found on Steam
Cognition and Gray Matter are the best ones imo, both either written or Co-written by Jane Jensen (of King's Quest and Gabriel Knight fame)
I would go deeper in the horror adventures since games like 7th Guest and Harvester are often forgotten. Harvester in particular was so over the top that when you play it you realize that this kind of game would never come out today. Nice video btw
