Well, hey, you can't always be timely. Anyway! Run and read the second part of our Serpent's Curse review. It will make you a better human being.


It seems Telltale is ready to tackle the current generation of consoles, as GameStop is now taking pre-orders for The Walking Dead Game of the Year Edition on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. According to the GameStop product page, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game will be released on the 17th of June.
Turns out one of the teases that Night Dive has been making has come to fruition. Night Dive and Tommo are bringing 28 classic titles from Humongous Entertainment, the educational software company founded by Ron Gilbert and Shelly Day, to Steam.

On May 1st those games will be joined by Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon, Freddi Fish 2: The Case of the Haunted Schoolhouse, Pajama Sam 2: Thunder and Lightning Aren’t so Frightening, Spy Fox 2: Some Assembly Required, Putt-Putt and Pep’s Dog on a Stick, and Freddi Fish and Luther’s Water Worries. May 15th will see the release of Putt-Putt Travels through Time, Freddi Fish 3: The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell, Pajama Sam 3: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet, Spy Fox 3: Operation Ozone, and Putt-Putt and Fatty Bear’s Activity Pack. Then on May 29th Steam will receive Putt-Putt Enters the Race, Putt-Putt Joins the Circus, Freddi Fish 4: The Case of the Hogfish Rustlers of Briny Gulch, Pajama Sam 4: Life Is Rough When You Lose Your Stuff!, and Spy Fox in: Cheese Chase.

Here's hoping that these games get released on as well. And now that this humongous rumor has become reality, hopefully the other one will come to fruition as well.

The Vita version of The Walking Dead: Season Two episode 1 and episode 2 will finally release on April 22 in North America and on April 23 in Europe.

On the subject of Telltale's The Walking Dead series, Dorkly has created a video showing what the Mario series would be like if presented in the manner of The Walking Dead.

IGN is celebrating a year of adventure by playing through the classic point and click graphic adventure games of the genre throughout 2014.

So far they've hit the most popular of the early batch of adventures from Sierra and LucasArts, looking back at King's Quest I, King's Quest II and III, Space Quest I and II, Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken, and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.

There's still eight months left, and a lot of classic adventures to cover, so it will be interesting to see what other games IGN plays through. They certainly can't go wrong with playing through any of the LucasArts adventure catalog, as we so thoroughly showed in our own LucasArts Secret History features from a few years back.

Moebius, the crowd funded adventure from Gabriel Knight creator Jane Jensen's Pinkerton Road Studio and Cognition creator Phoenix Online, is now available. If you order from The Phoenix Online store, they have a promotion going on for 20% off Moebius if you use the code CSGMOEB20OFF

Hey, another entry in The Wolf Among Us saga, and we like it. Run to read our review of "A Crooked Mile". It's a great one. The game, that is. And the review, too, why not?

Or, as the kids call it, #tbt.

If you're in the mood for some nostalgia, we have a few items that should keep you occupied for the next half hour or so. First, we've uploaded the Curse of Monkey Island cutscenes, as well as those from Escape from Monkey Island.

And if you want some reading material, check out Bill Tiller's EMI pizza orgy questionnaire. Read how the man came up with Tales of Monkey Island a decade before it was released!

You're welcome!

The Telltale website hasn't been updated with the news, but The Walking Dead: Season One is now available on Android devices. After the game appeared on the Android based Kindle Fire platform late last year, it seemed like only a matter of time before it was extended to other Android devices.

It was previously assumed that the already announced Ouya release would happen first, but it is now available on the Google play store for Android devices in general. There is still no word on when the Ouya version will be released.


You can actually buy stuff from them.

I'm really only mentioning this because they promised me a free t-shirt for doing the HTML/CSS for the design you're looking at right here. In 2005.

April Fools! What do you mean you already knew? Apologies to those on Twitter who took it seriously! And apologies to Yaguete who we stole the art from without asking for permission. Check out his deviantART page.

It's well know that LEC was producing a special edition of Day of the Tentacle just before they were swallowed up by Disney, after which the game disappeared in a black box. We assumed work on it had been terminated, which, now, turns out to be wrong. Day of the Tentacle: Special Edition is finishing up within Disney, and will hit iOS and Android devices this July!

Judging by the accompanying concept art (or "cover" art?) this will be a looker, not a million miles away from the style of MI2:SE. A new touch interface and re-mastered voices have been promised, as has a fully digital soundtrack. Click past the cut to read press release and to see the art.
