I have always been a big fan of adventure games on the PC. Titles such as Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle and Grim Fandango were just amazing games to play through with their creative content, great graphics, and funny situations.
The adventure game dies off a bit for a number of years and then came back more recently with titles like Syberia and Runaway. Both of the companies producing these games have recognized that the Nintendo DS, with its two screens and stylus, is a perfect platform to play adventure games. So, in 2008, we will see at least 3 great adventure games on the DS.
- Last King of Africa: A DS version of Benoit Sokal’s Paradise
- Sinking Island: A DS version of the Benoit Sokal game with the same title
- Runaway: The Dream of the turtle, available April 1st, a DS version of the second game from spanish company Pendulo Studios
I’m going to have fun this year with my DS 😉
