I've completed the first two of the three freeware games a long time ago. They were really cool! I also played "Technobabylon VR" and made a video:

I don't know WHEN it's released exactly, but I'm already on the edge of my seat!  :D

I agree with you a 100%!

Double Fine don't seem to get things done lately plus they've ruined both their Kickstarter experience (with "Broken Age" still not being done) and their Early Access experience on Steam (by turning the alpha version of "Spacebase DF-9" into the official release overnight without bugfixing or improving it). Aside from the fact that "Broken Age" wasn't even a real point & click adventure game as originally advertised. It was more of a dumbed-down interactive story with laughably easy "puzzles" (if you can call them that) for casual gamers and with mainly mobile devices as platforms in mind. A shame.

While I do enjoy Telltale's games (most of all "Tales of Monkey Island" and "Back to the Future"), I can't help but feel like they are really becoming more of an interactive movie kind of thing just like QuanticDream's games have over the years. And even when they create genuine point & click adventure games, they still feel kind of repetitive and stale as Telltale continues to just slap new textures onto their existing engine (which still has that awful control scheme that was introduced with "Tales of Monkey Island").

Wadjet Eye Games, however, would be simply PERFECT for the "Loom" sequels! Both Dave and Ben love the game (and I bet Francisco does, too) and... oh MAN... just IMAGINE the breathtakingly gorgeous artwork and animation Ben would make for those games!! "Loom 2: Forge" plus "Loom 3: The Fold" by Wadjet Eye Games... this would be THE best news since the resurrection of Looking Glass Studios in the form of OtherSide Entertainment!


BTW, there are at least several fan-made sequels of Loom in the work. Has anybody tried 'Forge'? It is a decent one

Yeah, I've played through that "Forge" game twice and it was really great! I enjoyed every second of it! Kudos on that awesome new control system with the Blacksmiths' gauntlets!


Oh, please check out this video I made about "Loom", with some interesting facts and trivia:

His closing words at GDC: "There are now three studios whom I would trust with the sequels. Telltale, Double Fine, and Wadjet Eye. Talk to me. Im on the make.

The Blackwell series / Re: More games like Blackwell
« on: May 02, 2014, 01:20:38 AM »
One of Dave's biggest influences he mentioned, is the old "Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers" which you can get on GOG.com. (Dave even said during the live stream for Epiphany: "Blackwell is basically me trying to make 'Gabriel Knight'.") It's a game about an author solving a case which involves voodoo murders. So it does have the mystery, the puzzle solving, the investigations and death - however there are no ghosts in that game.

If you want another absolutely gorgeous adventure game with character portraits and you're ready to venture into the victorian age, try "The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Serrated Scalpel". Even today, it remains one of the most beautiful adventure games of all time. You'll love the atmosphere!

If a witty and charismatic (and a bit clumsy) female protagonist is what you're searching for, the "Laura Bow" games should be perfect for you. The first game is called "The Colonel's Bequest" and the second one is "The Dagger of Amon Ra". Again: all the mystery, all the investigation, and a very immersive atmosphere.

Another suggestion, which goes in a similar direction, would be "The Longest Journey". I was often reminded of this game when playing "Blackwell".

Chit Chat! / Re: I Love You
« on: April 30, 2014, 06:43:10 PM »
Some time ago, I mentioned the German adventure game developers Daedalic Entertainment as my favourite point & click adventure game company. Then they released the "Deponia" trilogy which featured a protagonist that was so insultingly, ridiculously ruthless, unlikeable and doesn't ever really redeem himself (there's no moral to the story so all the youngsters playing those games will think it's "cool" to act like that, hurt other people and laugh about it afterwards).  :-\ That was the point when I started being careful and haven't bought their games on the release dates anymore.

Now Wadjet Eye Games comes along and makes me go a step beyond what I was doing when I still loved Daedalic that much: nowadays I pretty much buy everything that has the Wadjet Eye Games logo on it (yes, even Puzzle Bots  ;) ). I preorder them and I know they are awesome in advance. With Wadjet Eye you simply can't go wrong in my book.

To me personally, you are the only true spiritual successors of LucasArts in the golden era of adventure games. Thank you so much for creating something that enriches our lives like that.

Chit Chat! / Re: Another game this year after Blackwell Epiphany?
« on: April 30, 2014, 06:33:16 PM »
I *think* Dave might be talking about the porting of the first three Blackwell games to iOS and Android. Or... something mysterious... ;D I personally would hope for a game by Dave, Ben Chandler and Francisco Gonzales! :)

My objection is that it is very hard for a player who did not play the previous installment, where various laws and mechanics of the Blackwell world were established.
Then again... would people who haven't played any of the previous games even understand "Epiphany" at all? I don't really think so. Maybe to a certain degree but not enough to actually appreciate the game for what it is. They'd go "Why does this girl have a ghost? Who are these people?" and at the beginning they probably wouldn't even know that Joey's tie helps spirits to move on.

Here's something I compiled while listening to "Mary's Theme" in an endless loop.
I hope you like it:

The Blackwell series / Blackwell Posters on GOG.com
« on: April 29, 2014, 09:21:24 PM »
Hey there people!

Apart from having the Blackwell games on Steam, I also bought the Blackwell Bundle on GOG. Now in the bonus material there are hi-res poster artworks for "Unbound", "Convergence" and "Deception".

Will the hi-res artwork for "Legacy" be added, too, later on?
And will we also get a hi-res artwork for "Epiphany" someday?

I really want to send the files to a German printing service to get them as posters for my living room this way.  :)

Best regards!

No problem.  ;D Thanks for the quick reply!
I'm looking forward to listening to Mary's theme again soon.  :)

Thanks for the awesome soundtrack in the first place, it's absolutely brilliant!

The Blackwell series / Epiphany Soundtrack Question
« on: April 29, 2014, 09:18:31 AM »
Yesterday (at 9 in the morning after playing through the night), I finally finished Blackwell Epiphany. Today I put the soundtrack on my MP3 player to always carry that atmosphere with me. ;)

Now my absolute favourite song from Epiphany was Mary Meehan's theme at the beginning. Is something wrong with my files or is that song really not included...?
