Why love matters in adventure games
Alright, get your 'weeee-woooo' girly jokes out of the way early, folks, 'cos I'm about to crack open the lid on love in adventure games so hard the jar will shatter. Too much? Sorry, it's been a while.
Truthfully, I'd never really thought much on it when I was a nipper. Adventure games were, and are, my jam, but it's only been the past decade or so years that I've started paying attention to the plotlines more enthusiastically. It's not all about jumping from one deadly platform to the next – it's about WHY we're taking the leap.
After all, love comes in many shapes and sizes and affects people in a bunch of different ways. Plus, whether you want to admit it or not, love makes things a lot more interesting (yes, even the clichés).

It's All Hallows' Eve once again. And what better way to enjoy the holiday spirit(s) than to have a good scare - or ten?

The Walking Dead - Season 1
The Walking Dead isn't conventionally scary in the "Aargh! What the heck just jumped out at me??" kind of way, but it's distinctly unnerving. It taps into that instinct to protect those we care about then shows us just how easily the life we once knew can be taken away forever. Forcing you to make tough decisions that are a matter of life and death mean you never get a chance to calm down or relax. Instead, you're constantly on edge in a world that makes no sense any more. If that's not deeply scary, I don't know what is. - Jennifer Allen
Ellie - Help me out... please
Ellie - Help me out... please is a short, but creepy puzzle game that revolves around the player's interactions with a kidnapped girl through a security camera feed. It definitely has some Saw vibes thanks to its puzzle room nature and voyeuristic perspective.
Although the puzzles are a little opaque, immersion in the very tiny game world is precisely what makes it kind of creepy. Not necessarily creepy in the "spooky" sense, but in the sense that players start questioning the game's bizarre setup. Who is the player character? Why is this girl in this room? What does it all mean? - Campbell Bird

AMC Partners with Next Games to Develop a New App Based on The Walking Dead
On the heels of its insanely popular television program The Walking Dead, AMC TV has announced that it is tapping Finnish developer Next Game to develop a mobile game based on the TV show. The game is said to be in production, and the launch should coincide with Season 5 of the show.
Both companies will partner to market the app. According to AMC President Charlie Collier, "We chose to team up with Next Games because of their outstanding creative and technical talent, as well as a willingness to re-imagine the unique and compelling world of The Walking Dead, which has built a significant and passionate global fan community,” he says.
Next Game chief Teemu Huuhtanen is equally upbeat. “Our take on the undead survival franchise will match the against-all-odds action and moment-to-moment tension of the TV series. We want to find that sweet spot where gameplay and narrative inform and reinforce one another. Like AMC’s The Walking Dead itself, we’re not giving away too many details right out the gate, but I can confidently state it’s unlike anything we’ve seen from The Walking Dead franchise on home or mobile gaming hardware before.”
More details will be released in coming months.
