Stranger Things Adventure Game Released by Fans

Stranger Things, a popular mini-series on Netflix, took the world by storm via nearly 100% word of mouth advertising.  This show was set in the style of the early 1980’s.  Boy did it capture the mood of that time period.  From how the actors dressed to how they talked and the environment they displayed it […]

Clock Tower Lops Limbs Off Playstation Owners – Today in Retro Gaming – October 1st, 1997

When you think of horror games on the original Playstation console, what do you think of?  Maybe you only know Capcom’s Resident Evil in this genre.  Maybe you go a little less mainstream and remember something called Clock Tower by our friends at ASCII Entertainment?  While this is technically the second Clock Tower game, the […]

Homeworld Hits Windows Real Time Strategy Fans from 3rd Dimension – Today in Retro Gaming – September 28th, 1999

What would civilization do if presented with an advanced piece of technology, such as a space ship?  Robotech asked this in Anime and we see it in Homeworld by Sierra Entertainment for Windows computers, released in 1999.  While gamers were probably getting sick of real time strategy games by 1999, who could blame them, Homeworld […]

Save the Kingdom of Daventry in King’s Quest – Today in History – May 10th, 1984

The original King’s Quest was quite a game.  For the time it was amazing, it still is in many respects.  King’s Quest was a marvel for the period and something that was just not seen on computers.  Up to the release of this harbinger of things to come title by Sierra Entertainment (later to become […]

New Game: Inherit the Earth Released for the Commodore Amiga CD32

While we have covered Amiga CD32 releases over the last year or two, recently they have kind of slowed down.  This happens though, as one area slows (such as the Amiga CD32) another picks up (such as the Atari Jaguar and NES areas).  That does not mean that there are no releases whatsoever for the […]

Bandit Gaming: Owl Hunt Expands on King’s Quest V in Unique Way

Ah, the classic King’s Quest series.  A series that used to be a mainstay in gaming and a very viable reason to purchase a computer considering only one King’s Quest game was ever ported to a home console (quick, name it!).  This series started in the early days of computing and lasted up to the […]

New Game: Highway Tears Brings Law and Order Style Referencing of Real Events to Adventure Gaming

Everyone knows that Law and Order, nearly all of the spin-offs and the original, feature storylines that heavily reference real world events. Names and other details are changed and sometimes facts from multiple stories are mixed into one episode to keep the show interesting. Highway of Tears is a game that is aiming to do […]

Bandit Gaming: Leisure Suit Larry for the NES

Some games were just too hot for the NES back in the day, such as the classic Point and Click series- Leisure Suit Larry. Nintendo would probably have censored so much that it would not have been recognizable to fans had any of Larry’s adventures even attempted to follow King’s Quest V, Shadowgate or UnInvited […]

New Game: The Samaritan Paradox for Windows

New adventure games are a rare event today. This once great genre has fallen to the wayside of gaming, at least with the major game publishers. This delegation to the back burner by the “big boys” has opened the door for indie developers to shine. Take the Samaritan Paradox for Windows for example, this game […]

New Game: Heroine’s Quest Reminds Us of Great Games of Yesteryear

The classic Quest for Glory, originally titled Hero’s Quest but legalities stopped that, is now reimagined as Heroine’s Quest for PC. The cool part is, it is free on Steam, right now. For those that do not know what the fuss is all about, Quest for Glory is a pioneering title that still effects modern […]
