One of the life important source – air (here presented as wind) – is provided by 3 great wind fountains. But one after another went dry and only one is somehow functional.

Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes is an extraordinary point-and-click adventure created by Daedalic Entertainment GmbH – the creators of the award winning games “The Whispered World” and “Deponia”. They had made another adventure named Edna & Harvey before – it is called “The Breakout”. In contrast Harvey’s New Eyes’s protagonist isn’t Edna like in “The Breakout” but Lilli – her best friend. It all starts in a garden behind a monastery, where Lilli is trying to rake up leaves on the ground, and the narrator welcomes you to the game.
Candle is a beautiful 2D point-and-click adventure. It has very original hand-painted graphic and professional audio. The story is full of human errors and their corrections. It’s about how too much ambitions and greed caused destruction of a sophisticated civilization and in an effort to cut an end to violence, the shamans have created a disaster. In order to save the world from fifth destruction Teku has to save his tribe’s shaman, solve challenging puzzles, defeat Wakchas and reveal the truth.
Just Ignore Them is a short pixel-graphic point-and-click adventure with slightly horror atmosphere. It has multiple endings and they’re based on your choices. To be exact a good one and a bad one. To achieve the good one, you have to behave well. To play the bad one, just kill someone when you have the chance. So there’s no science. What I really like is how open and uncensored are the dialogs between two main characters. Yes, Just Ignore Them warns you in the beginning that it contains violence, strong language and disturbing graphic. But c’mon pixelated disturbing graphic doesn’t even count. It’s pixelated… Even though Just Ignore Them managed to stay creepy and messed-up in the right way.
Leaving Lyndow is a very short 3D first-person exploration adventure with a beautiful graphic and details. It tells a story about Clara, a girl that lives her dream that she really worked hard for. It’s her last day in her hometown, which is the right time for saying her goodbyes to everyone and every favourite place. Goodbyes are mostly hard and emotional, but it’s also relieving when she knows that her mom supports her in everything she’s doing. But not everyone is like her mom. She also has to face criticism from her uncle.
The Crow’s Eye is a first-person puzzle (“platform”) adventure game set in abandoned Medical University of Crowswood. You just woke up in a room and you don’t remember anything. After a while an insane doctor starts to communicate with you through a walkie-talkie and you soon find out that he is not your friend in any way. You know that Crowswood is not a place with great reputation because 20 years ago some students went missing without trails. Are you one of them? Will you find the truth and escape?
Detention is an atmospheric psychological horror game set in a fictitious world in the 1960s Taiwan under martial law. It’s a story-driven side-scrolling video game enriched of unique East Asian / Taiwanese cultural references, which in fact is something refreshing and rare. The story is well-told and emotional. And one important thing – it isn’t based on jump-scares at all. All fear is in your mind.
