• Freeware Garden: Able Mable Gets A Job

      When Ruth Manning-Sanders retold the spooky, kids tale of The Old Whitch fifty years ago, she couldn’t have possibly anticipated it would spawn such a wonderfully odd interactive thing as Able Mable Gets A Job. Nor could she have expected that so many naughty little jokes could fit into something so short and so whimsical.

    • Freeware Garden: All The Way Down

      Drawing inspiration from Lovecraft’s famous The Shadow Over Innsmouth All The Way Down is a short but lovely horror adventure game by Sanctuary Interactive.

  • Freeware Garden: Providence

    … Having hidden a package delivered by a stranger, shot someone I never got to talk to, snuck into a hotel room and listened to lovely renditions of Chopin’s wonderful music, I can safely say that you will not get bored with Providence. It may be a brief adventure with barely a puzzle in it and an only mildly intriguing (though definitely…

  • Freeware Pick: The Bear, the Cat, and the Rabbit (Rostok)

    … The Bear, the Cat, and the Rabbit is an odd one. It has the look and feel of old, isometric PC games and is as unforgiving in its challenge as classic point-and-click adventures. In a world overcome by dust, you take control of the three eponymous characters, anthropomorphic animals each stranded in a separate part of the game's "map." Your… 3 readers -
  • Freeware Garden: Mord in Venedig

    … Tod in Venedig by Thomas Mann has absolutely nothing to do with Mord in Venedig (Murder in Venice). This lovely little freebie is a point-and-click murder mystery which doesn’t really care about artistic inspiration. Or spelling, to be brutally honest. Or even clipping, though these are matters you should probably ignore. If you loved being…

  • Technocrat and Wadjet Eye Games announce Technobabylon

    … Seasoned indie adventurers should have already played through the first, freeware and rather excellent cyberpunk Technobabylon adventures, though now both they and everyone else looking for some top quality point-and-clickable science fiction should prepare for the ultimate release of Technobabylon; sometime this Spring. This new Technobabylon…

  • Wadjet Eye Games teases their upcoming game, Technobabylon, for PC

    … and Linux also in the works. Technobabylon takes place in a dystopian cyberpunk future where genetic engineering is the norm, the addictive Trance has replaced almost any need for human interaction, and an omnipresent AI named Central powers the city. Its all-seeing CEL police force keeps tabs on everyone, kind of creepy, isn’t it? I swear these AI’s must…

  • Freeware Pick: A Postcard From Afthonia (Jonas Kyratzes)

    …. If not, well, you know what to expect now, don't you? A Postcard From Afthonia can be grabbed for absolutely nothing from this place, though I would suggest you consider buying the deluxe edition of the game. It comes with a brilliant video commentary/playthrough, Henry Trollweather's Three Memories PDF and a traditional Afthonian Moussaka Recipe. …

Over their long, illustrious history point-and-click adventures have starred everything from wannabe pirates and odd teenagers to private investigators and obnoxious wizards, but never a goat herder. Happily, the aptly named Goat Herd and the Gods has just been released to right…
