  1. You're on the run and every move counts. A shadow follows in your exact movements and pausing for too long to figure out a puzzle could prove deadly in the minimalist cat-and-mouse game Echoplex. Awarded Most Innovative Game and Best Art Direction at Lisboa Games Week IndieDome 2017, Echoplex offers players a set of 27 levels that weave their way through an FMV storyline full of mystery, intrigue, and horror. Since that showing last year, Output Games has revamped the user interface, added new puzzle mechanics, and tightened the gameplay. Echoplex puts players into the role of an engineer at the Clonochem Corporation manufacturing the strange and mysterious product Continuum. After calling a phone number he finds on a severed arm, he finds himself trapped in a simulation that continually loops and soon begins to fill with more versions of himself - until one of them begins to chase the original. That chase sits as the fundamental building block of Echoplex. Run over a switch that shuts a door? You might have to wait for the shadow following in your exact footsteps to trigger the switch again to move on. The founder and director at Output Games, Tyron van Vuuren had this to say about the unique FMV approach to storytelling: With Echoplex, we were looking for new ways to create a fully-realized world that carries emotional weight – something that only real actors can bring to a story. The game doesn’t come to a halt during cutscenes; instead, Echoplex allows players to get involved in the storytelling process – building their own interpretation of events as they piece things together. And although the cutscenes may look expensive, we had a very tight budget. Kudos to the visual effects team who worked hard to achieve those results. Echoplex is available beginning today for PC.

  3. The creator behind last year's indie hit, Her Story, has teased a sequel currently in the works. Sam Barlow went so far as to call the next title Her Story 2, though he stated that Her Story 2 is a working title. Sam Barlow tweeted early yesterday that the new game was beginning development. It will apparently have no story connection to the first Her Story, though it could very well imitate the live-action storytelling of the first. The full teaser image can be seen below:

  5. Toonstruck, a solid, but largely forgotten title from the heyday of point-and-click adventure games, releases on Good Old Games today. It stars Christopher Lloyd of Back to the Future fame as a cartoonist sucked into a world of animated characters. Needless to say, things get a bit weird. The game stars a lot of other great talent, too. Ben Stein makes an appearance, while Dan Castellaneta (perhaps better known as Homer Simpson), Dom DeLuise (All Dogs Go To Heaven), and ever amazing Tim Curry. Toonstruck is a weird, classic piece of gaming and it is good to see it get some new life on GOG. Heck, up until now, most people these days probably only heard about it from Hey Ash Whatcha Playin'?

  7. The 90s was a good time for video games for a lot of reasons. One of those reasons being the popularization of full motion video (better known as FMV) games. FMV techniques didn't use sprites or 3D models, but relied instead on filmed video files. This led to them being marketed as interactive movies. Years of $10 budgets and underwhelming gameplay eventually sunk this snippet of gaming history shortly before the turn of the century and many thought it was gone for good. They were wrong. In the midst of the glorious heyday of FMV's cheesy acting, cheap sets, and ridiculous plots, there was the particularly beloved Tex Murphy series of adventure games. Between 1989 and 1998 seven games were released chronicling the exploits of Tex Murphy, an old-school detective working in a grim post-war San Francisco set during the 2040s. The series drew critical praise as well as an incredibly loyal following. However in 1998, the final Tex Murphy game, Overseer, was released only to end on a colossal cliffhanger. Fans gave the series up for lost and moved on, until developer and Tex Murphy IP owner Big Finish Games brought their idea for a new game to Kickstarter. Fans of the series came out of the woodwork, together managing to raise enough money to resuscitate Tex for another adventure titled The Tesla Effect. The new game will carry on the traditions of FMV games while updating the presentation for modern audiences. Chris Jones, the original Tex Murphy, will be reprising his role alongside Todd Bridges, who played Willis from Diff’rent Strokes, Larry Thomas, perhaps better known as the “Soup Nazi” from Seinfeld, and Kevin Murphy, who was Tom Servo on Mystery Science Theater 3000. The Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure will release early 2014 on PC and Mac. Honestly? I am pretty excited about this. The Tesla Effect looks like it just might scratch that old-school adventure game itch that resides deep within my soul while giving me some laughs. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
