This one here seems interesting. I've heard a lot about the fist Man From Earth film

Man, I saw that first film a few years ago. Takes place all in one room. Surprisingly, I found it quite compelling.

It seemed like an interesting pitch for something bigger.

What do you get when you take a potbellied exterminator, a purple bear bard, and the most nastiest slugs you’ve ever seen and put them together in a 2D point-and-click adventure game? Why, you get the continuing saga of Reemus and Liam, that’s what. Enter The Ballads of Reemus 2, another game being Kickstarted that started its life as a Flash-based adventure on the likes of Newgrounds and Kongregate.

This one I've got Laney herself to thank for as I saw her back it (think I was #2 on the list):

In space no one can hear you scream. Which might not be a good thing in the case of the newest addition to the action-adventure stable of games trying to get funded through Kickstarter. Take Europa 2022, a blend of traditional point-and-click adventure with the more “actiony” elements that can be found in the likes of Heavy Rain or Uncharted. Toss in a liberal dose of sci-fi horror and you’ve got the makings on a unique gaming experience.

Hey guys/gals cheers 
I'm backing Reemus - how could I not?

And Laney was kind enough to let me back St. Christopher's on PayPal, sooo.... when is the game due? geek

Imagine taking a hand-crafted world and turning it into an amazing side-scrolling adventure. Knite & The Ghost Lights delivers a mixture of adventure, storytelling, and action from games we know and love like Metroid and Castlevania, but with a completely fresh feel for today’s gamer.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming for something with a bit more tongue and cheek...  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/notfound/staring-at-the-camera

One aspect of adventure games, or really any game at all, that’s important to the playing experience is music. It helps to breathe life into the story. But, few actively pursue it as a central theme. Enter Bolt Riley, a story of reggae music and finding one’s place in society. Working your way up to being a legend is the name of the game here. And it looks like a great take on the genre.

The horror…the horror! What is it about scary games that draw us to them? Why do we let our fears out and play around with pixelated horrors and gore? I think science is still trying to figure that one out, but in my opinion it’s because we LIKE to be scared out of our wits. Which is why we’re featuring a documentary on these creepy and horrifying games. Take a look into the looking glass at Playing With Fear, a feature film and Web series dissecting the art, craft and community of horror video games.

The awesome guys at Infamous Quests just launched a Kickstarter for an old school hint book for their Quest for Infamy retro-style adventure game. Complete with the red cellophane decoder that we all remember and love from the glory days of Sierra On-Line. Also, if you missed out on the original campaign, you can get a copy (physical big box or digital) on some of the tiers.

Steampunk is a genre that doesn’t get as much love as it deserves. Like its cousin, cyberpunk, it deals with themes of advanced technology (for its time, at least) and with the plight of a downtrodden people, forced to live in disgusting and poor conditions, while the upper class lives off of wealth. Unlike cyberpunk, though, its generally represented in a past setting (usually in the 1800s) instead of the near future. Enter Blackmore, the latest in an ever increasing stable of crowdfunded adventure games and paying homage to this underutilized subsection of science fiction storytelling.

Dystopian and post-apocalyptic titles are pretty commonplace in media in any form, and with good reason. It takes a bleak look at what the future could hold for humanity should it ever stray towards the path of self-destruction. A warning letter to future generations to get their act together, if you will. And to stand out in the crowd you’d need to have some something unique to get people to take notice of it. Dead Syncrhonicity promises the standard trope and more. With a twist unlike any other that’s come before it.

“In 1945 a group of captured soldiers were placed in a POW camp and told they would never escape. Using their specialist skills, these man promptly devised a plan to attempt their most daring breakout yet.”

So if you can steal enough supplies,
and sneak past the guards,
and if you can get over the fence…

maybe you’re ready for…

The BREAKOUT!

The tales of H.P. Lovecraft are timeless for those who enjoy a good horror story. And with good reason. His stories have inspired generations that have come after him just as Edgar Allan Poe had influenced his writing. Delving into many aspects of what makes a person lose their mind and drawing from their deepest, darkest fears is what brings people back to classics like the Cthulhu Mythos. And the latest game to tackle these themes is The Eldritch Cases: Dagon, an adventure game that sets its sights on one of the most iconic villages ever put to pen by the seminal author.
