Astro Galaxy Mega Quest VIII
Or, to give it its full title, Astro Galaxy Mega Quest VIIII: The Half Moon of Ray'don, Chapter 008.52 - Sci/Psy/Psi/SighBots of the Past (Historical Simulation Series) Editor's Choice Edition, is another offering by AGS master and designer of -among other stuff- Eternally Us Ben 304. The music is great, the visuals sharp as ever and you get to play as Master Chef in a very Sierra-esque adventure. Download it here.
Le Miserables: The Game of the Book
This one is a very impressive adaptation of Victor Hugo's classic (Marx never quite liked it, mind) and quite revolutionary (in the political sense, that is) story, that used to be a proper commercial adventure game. Well, no more it seems, as the developers have been kind enough to provide us all with free copies of the thing via their lovely site. The game's artwork and of course the writing are simply jaw-dropping.
The Journey Down: Over the Edge
Corruption and adventure in the first episode of the highly promising The Journey Down, err, episodic adventure series. Won't spoil anything for you. Just follow the link and you'll thank me. Preferably by sending in crates of Dom Perignon.Related @ Gnome's Lair:
