Do terms like SCUMM and Graphic Adventure make your heart go pitter-patter? When you think history, do you think George Washington and Benjamin Franklin? Or do names like Infocom, Sierra On-Line and LucasArts come to mind more readily? When you sleep, do you count sheep, or dancing monkeys and bouncing, world dominating tentacles?
Well, fear not, because graphic adventures are alive and well, and slowly making a comeback! Below are just a few of my favorite selections in current adventure game development…
Dave Gilbert and Erin Robinson (designer: Puzzlebots, artist: Blackwell Unbound) are two of the coolest cats currently in indie game development, and the games of Dave’s company WadjetEye are basically a treasure trove for adventure gamers. The Shivah in particular is one of the boldest, most mature adventure titles I have seen. Ever.

Welcome!Han Solo Adventures is a fan-game project in the tradition of classic point-and-click graphic adventure games. This is a project I have embarked upon purely for my own enjoyment, and for the love of two things: PnC goodness and Star Wars!
Although the storyline will be fairly original, loosely based on available background info on Han and his early exploits, you can expect gameplay similar to classic LucasArts titles like Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis by Hal Barwood and Noah Falstein (also the creative forces behind Sinistar and Dragon Slayer!)
