Things of interest

Good news for adventure game fans

Seeing that this is my very first blog post, I guess it’ll be alright to be a bit retrospective. I though about what I would want to share on this blog and thought of this awesome kickstarter initiative by the San Francisco based game developer, Double Fine.  This is great for a number of reasons. First of all point-and-click adventure games are awesome as they warrant a specific kind of interaction which is not based on motor skills or hand-eye coordination, but rather an intellectual interaction. This makes for a specific type of expression and ambiance, which can be very immersive although often based on crude graphics, such as Amanita’s gorgeous point-and-click Machinarium.

Another reason adding to the awesomeness of this endeavor is its business model. By using the crowd funding platform Kickstarter, the entire thing is sponsored by fans of adventure games, who feel directly involved and having some sort of ownership in the project.

Not at all bad for a small game developer and I, for one, am psyched to see the end result. You can check out their Kickstarter video below.
