Gamezebo has published a "Best Adventure Games of 2011" list, and both Blackwell Deception and Gemini Rue made the list! The list only contains 5 titles, so this is really something to congratulate Dave about!  ;D

The Blackwell series / Newsflash! Rosa reads Jim Butcher
« on: June 07, 2011, 01:10:54 PM »
So I just got a suggestion from Twitter to follow @harrydresden because @RosaBlackwell follows him. Harry Dresden is the wizard in Jim Butcher's phenomenal series "The Dresden Files".

So I'm probably showing my age, but it's a bit creepy to get a recommendation to follow one fictional character, because another fictional character already follows him.  :D (That didn't stop me from following him though. I didn't know that Butcher had set up that account.  ;))

Chit Chat! / Per Twitter-Isometric RPG games

Dave wrote on Twitter today:

Who likes isometric RPGs? We want to make one.

This is really interesting. It seems like isometric RPGs are heating up recently, because there seem to be several in development right now.

I really like this genre, but I'm just curious. Dave, are you thinking of a straight RPG, or some sort of cross-over between RPG and Adventure Games? At any rate, whether a straight RPG or some sort of cross-over, count me as a thumbs up!† ;D

Chit Chat! / Erm, 3 games?

From Dave's blog - "Iíve got three games in-the-works."† :o So....the new Blackwell, Puzzlebots, and...???† Did I miss something somewhere, or is a new sekrit?† :P

Hi Dave!

Just watched the new vidcast and wanted to say that ECC looks like it will be fantastic! :D

Chit Chat! / A question for Dave
« on: February 09, 2009, 02:39:54 AM »
Hi Dave!

I'm very much looking forward to ECC, the new Blackwell game, and puzzlebots, as well as several other "Sierra-style games" that are slated to come out. I'm an old-time game player from the 80's and 90's, and I've been thrilled in the last year to discover that people are making the old "Sierra-style" games again.

However, there is something that's been puzzling me, so I thought that I would ask you. Someone on one of the game sites that I visit said recently that 2008 "would be [remembered as] the year HOGs [hidden object games] shun the HOG label for point-and-click adventures like in the old PC days". In thinking about it, I think that I would say that 2008 was the year that *everyone* shunned the <fill in the blank genre> for point-and-click adventures.

There have been an explosion of adventure titles that are fusions of previous genres. There are now Myst-style adventure games, strategy adventure games, match 3 adventure games and even card solitaire adventure games, some with Mini-games and/or HO elements, as well as inventory. In addition, even games that are more genre games tend to have at least some adventure aspects to them (in the sense that they try to have some sort of story connected to them).

The one genre that seems to be staying "pure" is the Sierra-style of adventure game. Unless I don't know about them, I just can't think of "Sierra-style games" that I would consider "fusion" or "cross-genre" games. I am really curious as to why that is so. Is it by choice? Limited resources? Something else?

I realize that you're really busy right now, but would love to hear your thoughts on this, either in this thread, or as a vidcast sometime.

The Blackwell series / Great Games!!!

I've been reading this site for a few weeks and thought I'd unlurk and say what a pleasure it has been to find the Blackwell games. I'm really looking forward to the 3rd installment, as well as the PF project!
