Resonance is a seriously impressive point 'n click adventure game with a strong storyline, memorable characters and an innovative memory system. Oh, and Logan Cunningham (the Bastion guy) lends his voice to the proceedings. If you missed it in a recent Groupees bundle, you can now pick it up for peanuts until the 29th.
Wadjet Eye's fantastic cyberpunk adventure title - Gemini Rue - has released on iOS. You can download it here for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad at the slender price of £2.49.
Here's what we said about the game in our PC review:
Gemini Rue is a moody and meaty yarn that feels like a forgotten classic from yesteryear. Streamlined controls and clever puzzles make it suitable for old-school adventuring fans and newcomers alike. Highly recommended.
If sci-fi noir is your thing, this is a must buy.
Primordia may just be the best game Wadjet Eye have made to date, and yes, that includes the fantastic Gemini Rue. Adventure games aren't dead, the people saying that are simply looking in the wrong places. If you've got a hankering for a moving, sci-fi adventure, drop in on GOG nd pick up Primordia for the price of a pint. You won't regret it.
If you're hankering for some excellent point & click adventures, look no further than the latest Groupees bundle. A meagre £3.34 will net you the entire Blackwell series along with latest entry Blackwell Deception, all of which feature engrossing storylines and gorgeous artwork, while Gemini Rue is up there as a modern adventure classic with its Blade Runner meets Cowboy Bebop aesthetic. You'll even get Resonance and Puzzle bots too. It's worth noting that these games have graced many indie bundles before, but there's no arguing with the price.
Primordia is a Cyberpunk point & click adventure with hand-pixelled visuals, starring the narrator from Bastion who plays a lonely robot in a planet long abandoned by mankind. It's also being polished and published by Wadjet Eye, who don't mess about when it comes to the adventure game genre. So it's therefore the most exciting game of all time.
Well, perhaps. Either way, enjoy this new trailer and screenshot deluge which shed some new light on the upcoming project.Click here to read more...

Developer: Icebox Studios
Publisher: Wadjet Eye
You'd be forgiven for thinking that the point 'n click adventure game market is dead, what with Double Fine's Kickstarter proudly proclaiming itself to be the last great hope for the genre. But you'd be wrong. Numerous smaller companies still stick to their guns and continue providing us with great puzzles, snappy dialogue and random items to combine in increasingly bizarre ways, and Wadjet Eye are arguably at the forefront of their field. The emergent studio-cum-publisher has already delivered us the likes of Gemini Rue and the Blackwell series, and this latest title comes from British developer Chris Burton.
Da New Guys: Day Of The Jackass has a silly name and a worrying premise. Playing as The Defender, a costumed celebrity wrestler, you'll have to solve the mystery behind your comrade's disappearance, save your wrestling ring and possibly even get the girl. Burton is up-front about the fact that Da New Guys is very much an homage to Saturday morning cartoons, complete with colourful characters, plenty of posturing and relatively snappy pacing for an adventure game. And a deluded old man to beat up (or not).
