This year at E3, the great German gaming company Daedalic Entertainment was placing several of their major games on display. With four major titles to look at, Daedalic was great enough to show them all off, with lots of terrific point and click adventure games for fans of the genre to behold.
The first game on display was the gorgeous point and click game Memoria. An offshoot of another Daedalic game, Memoria focuses on Princess Sadja, a young woman who dreams of becoming the greatest hero of all time. Unfortunately, this fails pretty miserably, as she is not mentioned during the second storyline of the game, set five hundred years in the future. There is a lot to see in this eight chapter story, which will bounce back and forth in time between the two characters. Due out in the fall of 2013, this game should be a fun new title for fans who know of Daedalic’s other titles, as well as those unfamiliar.
The second game, Goodbye Deponia, is the third and final installment in theDeponia franchise, which leads to Rufus finally attempting to reach his dream of making it to Elysium. This game looks like it would be a lot of fun, and with its hand drawn art style and oddball humor, it’s an adventure game that fans of all ages and tastes should be able to enjoy.
The next game up was probably the most interesting of the four with Irresponsible Games’ 1954: Alcatraz. Set and designed to look exactly like San Francisco in 1954, this game focuses on Joe, an prisoner of Alcatraz looking to escape with the help of his wife. Joe has to listen to others, work with his wife on the outside and make a plan completely foolproof to escape, making it an interesting puzzle right from the start. The game also features some incredible diversity, especially given its era during the game. With an African-American protagonist along with a homosexual couple and a transgendered character, this game has representation far beyond what many games offer. It’s also a pretty interesting point and click adventure game, and with it coming out later this year, it’s one to look out for, especially for the content.
The last game up was the RPG BlackGuards, which was a massive departure from everything seen during the rest of the presentation. With a lot of variety in the game, this looks like it will be a solid RPG title, though it may not be for all fans as it looks much more story based and not as much in the way of multiplayer. With 190+ battle maps, several variations on character classes and a supernatural adventure theme, this looks like a fun game that should keep many RPG fans pretty happy.
With so much great stuff to see from Daedalic Entertianment this year, fans of PC adventure games should be very pleased. Congrats to them on a very successful E3!
