If there’s one genre that’s got a tradition of having scary games (apart from the survival horror genre, for obvious reasons) it’s our genre of choice: adventure games. Oz Orwell and the Crawling Chaos, a new effort from Midian Design, who also brought us Odissea, happily continues that tradition. (more…)

May I present the interview I conducted for ACG with Larry Ahern (Full Throttle, Curse of Monkey Island, Insecticide) concerning a bunch of adventure games that sadly none of us – the players – ever got our mandibles on – like Vanishing Act, Full Throttle 2 and Insecticide Part 2.

The highlights include not only some really cool behind-the-scenes stories from up to 20 years ago, but also a gallery of concept art from the aforementioned games, as well as the never before seen cutscenes from Insecticide: Part 2 which wrap up most of the storyline!

Lastly, I’ve been recommending the relatively unloved Insecticide: Part 1 for ages and still do. You can get it cheap on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/16710/

HardyDev’s first ever interviewee Adam Kuczek (that I talked to back in 2009) is sadly to busy working with the Wachowskis (on Cloud Atlas and Jupiter Ascending) to finish his own cyberpunk adventure game Butterfly. Nevertheless, he decided to create a gallery of artworks related to the world and story he envisioned. Have a look! (New images are regularly added)
