Beaten and left unconscious, you awake to discover all your gear has been stolen... which is kind of a big deal, since that gear is what allows you to survive in this post-apocalyptic wasteland. In this latest installment of the Fog Fall point-and-click adventure series from Pastel Games, you'll have to scour the crumbling remains of society and do more than a few favours if you want to proceed and not end up like the rest of the shambling, disheartened survivors barely eking out a living.
Go deep underground in this "What if?" approach to history from Pastel Games. In this short, easy point-and-click adventure, you play as a spy sent to infiltrate a laboratory in the Owl mountains. At first glance, it looks like you've broken into any other office, but pry around a bit and you'll soon find that there are a lot of secrets to uncover.
Morbid 2: The Cure picks up where the first chapter in the series left us, and just in time for everyone's favorite spooky holiday. The best part of this horror-themed, point-and-click adventure series remains the atmosphere. The black-and-white art and subtle ambient sounds are creepy and evocative. There are no jump scares or shocking gore, just a mood of well-crafted, eerie desolation. If you can get over the wonky navigation, Morbid 2 is a fine bit of quick, atmospheric spookiness, just right for Halloween.
Everybody wants something... including you. But if you want to get to your destination you'll have to learn that sometimes you have to grease a few palms with irradiated deer meat to succeed. Really, that's a life lesson! Pastel Games continues their post-apocalyptic point-and-click series in this third installment where you find out that the world may be bigger and more dangerous than you thought. Make the right friends to succeed in your journey... just don't make too many enemies...
Pastel Games has just released a new point-and-click game, Morbid, designed and illustrated by Maciej Palka with programming, animation and puzzle support from Mateusz Skutnik. Although the artwork contained within is well-conceived and the atmosphere is enticingly moody, we weren't as impressed with the gameplay. Hard-to-find hotspots turn this game into a disappointing exercise in frustration. But give it a play and decide for yourself.
