Andromeda Apocalypse

andromeda_apocalypse01.png
Marco Innocenti 2012
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Andromeda Apocalypse is a sequel to Andromeda Awakening, a game which, ironically, should really have had this one's title, because… you know… it was about the apocalyptic destruction of a whole world. The actual Apocalypse, on the other hand, is a rather slow-paced exploration game set in an abandoned space station (strictly speaking, it's a space ship, but of huge proportions). Strange naming aside, although there is a strong continuity between the games, it is not absolutely necessary to have played the predecessor.


Andromeda Awakening

Marco Innocenti 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

One of the planet's three suns is threatening all life as we know it. You are one of the few people who knows about it. On the way to the institute where you're supposed to try and save the world, disaster strikes already: Earthquakes destroy much of the subway system, killing all your fellow passengers. But these quakes also carve the way into a long-forgotten underworld full of machines and artifacts dating back to the early days of colonisation – and even before that.


Beet the Devil

Genre: Adventure
Rating: 1/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

Demons have laid waste on your garden, probably killed your neighbour and, worst of all, kidnapped your dog! What else is there left to do, but to go down to hell (armed with various vegetables and accompanied by a helpful puppy) and to retrieve it?

Color the Truth

Brian Rushton 2016
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Rosalita is being blackmailed, having embezzled some money from her own charity. Two days later, the aging radio station owner and show host is murdered in her own office. Her secretary saw the murderer: a very likely disguised man with a stubble. The investigation team already sweeped the place. Now it's up to the player to interview the four main suspects – the beneficiaries named in the victim's will, i.e. her sister (a flamboyant wannabe show star), her ex-husband (also her former colleague who went to the competition recently), her business partner and the secretary.


Death of Schlig

Peter Timony 2011
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Schlig is working at the meat counter in the supermarket. What he really wants to be is a detective. He gets his chance when he is kidnapped by aliens who take them to their planet to be eaten. First, they want to fatten him, though. Messing with his DNA, what they achieve is giving him extensible and retractable eyes.


Fair

Hanon Ondricek 2016
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Interpreter

Hanon Ondricek has shown himself to be one of the best text adventure authors of recent years (we have full coverage of Transparent). So expectation are high for this one.

Fair follows last year's (The Baker of Shireton) approach: the player is thrown into an "open world" which can be, explored, used and abused to his liking. This is a special approach to storytelling insofar that it even enables the player to stay away from the classic role of protagonist and just let things unfold around him. There is a number of things going on and which strand of plot he follows is entirely up to the player. I.e. it's much more of an indirect way of storytelling compared to classic player-centric narratives.


Game of Worlds Tournament

Ade McT 2016
Genre: Puzzle
Rating: 2/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

I've never been into trading card games, as I believe they are a total commercial rip-off. Buy to win. After playing this one, I see the strategic appeal, however. The player takes part as a wild card participant in an intergalactic tournament. Nobody would bet a dime on him. Round by round, he challenges opponents and with that, the status quo of the ruling society (or something…).


Grounded in Space

Matt Wigdahl 2009
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

There's probably not much to do living on some asteroid in deep space. Grounded in Space's protagonist, a teenage boy, decided to spend his time building a rocket. Anxious to test it, he takes it outside and... it destroys his mother's garden! To finally learn some responsibility, learn about the hardship of life and learn to appreciate hard work, he is sent out to a mining belt in a spaceship - all on his own. The journey is supposed to be automated, so our hero has some time to read and familiarize himself with the basics of space mining. Things take a nasty turn soon enough, though, when he encounters pirates and a damsel in distress...


Hunger Daemon

Sean M. Shore 2014
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Freeware
System: Interpreter

Hunger Daemon is a game about the search of a long-time veterinarian student for a heart, a girl and something to eat… not necessarily in this order. His journey is linked to his uncle, who wants to take over the world by summoning an elder being into his body. Of course this cannot be for real, so the only serious question he has to ask himself is: When are you going to get your hands on some food?
