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)

Sorry, that you had to wait a few days longer for the results, but the good news is we added an additional copy of The Journey Down to the pool of prizes. So there are FIVE lucky people who’ll get their hands on them. And their names are:

The PC demo of Gesundheit! from 2006 is to this date one of the most professional looking work done with the Adventure Game Studio engine. Also the most fun piece of snot-shoot puzzling around tear-eyed monsters ever created! (more…)

Sorry for the delay with announcing the results, guys! My PC broke down.

But before you learn who won (please don’t roll over to the bottom of the article!), let me tell you a short story that will lead to the reveal of WHAT was The Prize of the contest all along!
