The point and click adventure genre has seen somewhat of a resurgence over these past few years thanks in part to devices like the iPad. While classics like Monkey Island and Sam & Max get updated for modern audiences, all new experiences are being created as well. Case in point, Daedalic Entertainment’s Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, the acclaimed 2008 underground adventure game and winner of the 2009 Red Dot Design Award, is arriving on the iPad in August 2012.
When young Edna wakes up in an insane asylum locked up and with no memory, obviously she suspects that something is wrong. With the exception of her talking stuffed bunny Harvey, everyone mistakenly believes that she’s crazy. Her only choice is to escape. Edna’s quest will have players interacting with fellow patients, staying one step ahead of the asylum’s Dr. Marcel and soaking in the bizarre, twisted atmosphere throughout the 20 hours of adventure goodness.
There’s no exact date or price yet for Edna & Harvey: The Breakout but look for it on the App Store sometime this August.
Puzzle Agent was a bit of a hit with us last year even though it was a little too short. Fans need not fear though as the next instalment, cunningly titled Puzzle Agent 2, is set to be released on June 30.
Puzzle Agent 2 sets out to build upon its older brother’s success by offering more rewarding puzzles based on the feedback from fans. The game will pick up after FBI Agent Nelson Tethers ‘solved’ the Scoggins Eraser Factory case — things get much murkier. Tethers has to go rogue and ventures back to the town of Scoggins, Minnesota in order to solve the biggest case of his career so far. Hopefully this will also mean a longer experience!
To celebrate the impending release of Puzzle Agent 2, the original title is on sale with the iPad version priced at $2.99 and the iPhone version priced at $0.99 until June 14.
Hopefully that’ll keep many puzzle fans busy until June 30 when Puzzle Agent 2 hits the App Store.
