    The greatest tragedy is that they never based made one based on Columbo

      How would that even work? Columbo episodes aren't mysteries so what would you be trying to do, get his car fixed and get Dog his shots?

            I would argue that the character of Columbo is far more important to Columbo than autistic adherence to formula.

        Find clues to get the killer. Set up situations to get him to reveal himself. All kinds of stuff. It's not like there's no actual detective work. You just need to know how to point the evidence and loose ends. You can make it like Pheonix Write and those Edgeworth games a bit too. You need to find the clues and you can also have dialogue traps and puzzles

        I would argue that the character of Columbo is far more important to Columbo than autistic adherence to formula.

        And there's no reason why we can't have the mystery revealed before hand because, again, we still need to figure out the puzzle.

        >get his car fixed and get Dog his shots?
        Also yes.

    Reminder that GOG don't deserve a fucking penny for Blade Runner.

    Pirate it. Always. If you want to give money to anyone, donate to ScummVN because they're the ones who spent years re-engineering it and making it playable on modern systems before releasing it free.

      What did they fuck up? I'm looking on the store and I just see there being two versions of the game....but apparently buying either nets you the other version.

    I love them. I recommend the first three Monkey Island games, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle and Grim Fandango. There's a ton of others I'm too tired to list, but an upcoming one that looks great is The Drifter

      Been wondering for a while if Grim Fandango was a point and click proper, was considering getting it physically for switch but playing point and click games on a console seems like the most retarded shit ever

      No but I watched Ashens play the demo, back when it was called something different. Incantamentum or some shit.
      Didn't look horrible but had too much "sassy confident woman and his bumbling idiot male colleagues" for my blood.

      Primordia is great, one of the greatest adventrue games even
      Technobabylon is my second favorite of theirs
      Shardlight and Strangeland are also good
      The Shivah is nice but very short game about rabbi

            any important game made on that? I thought the "best" (of the modern ones at least) was that engine on which was made Deponia.
            For me it will always be AGS though

              Visionaire is pretty limited. It's one of those situations where anything additional that you wanna do in the unity one can be done with trad unity shit, whereas to extend visionaire, you gotta know Lua.
              I think Unforseen Circumstances or whatever it's called is Adventure Creator. So was fran bow i think. Honestly can't recall, but a fair few were.

    I like the good ones, like Monkey Island.

    A lot of the new ones made by indieshitters fail at being fun though. Too much idiotic Starbucks gen relationship drama, not enough puzzles.

      That one game Unavowed was covered in that.

        The game I was thinking about was Nightmare Frames. I downloaded the demo, went like the first 45 minutes of it just wandering around and blabbering to NPCs without encountering a single real puzzle and I just went "fuck this" and flushed it. That's like starting an FPS and for the first 45 minutes you don't get to fire a gun. Devs completely misunderstanding the genre.

        I'm replaying it right now, found curious the amount of effort they put on animations that are really showed one single time in the entire game. Really feels like a classic old disney movie

      Would have been stupid easy to keep to the style of the show for that genre to boot. Could have done it as an episodic style also which each episode being a self-contained idea/plot.

    Some of my all-time favorite games are point-and-clicks, like SUDA51's Twilight/Moonlight Syndrome and Kojima's Snatcher and Policenauts. Wish they'd make more of them today but both of Suda and Kojima said such games aren't suitable for today's standards and people would not accept them. It's a shame.

    Name FIVE, yes five, recent (in the last 10 years) point and clicks you would recommend. They don't have to be retrostyled but they gotta be actual point and clicks, not some on-rails thing like Telltale.
