Despite a shaky period with an awful attempt at turning Back To The Future into an adventure game, this year Telltale blessed us with The Walking Dead Game, likely the best adventure game in recent memory. It may even spell a resurgence for the genre, and with Double Fine Adventure and The Cave on the (admittedly distant) horizon, there’s certainly excitement building for the return of one of gaming’s most beloved and missed genres.
Edna and Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes (HNE) is literally an offence to the genre. It’s a giant middle-finger salute to the hard work and brilliant creativity of the greats and it’s adding horribly to the growing number of shoddy, pathetic and worst of all apathetic adventure games that are giving genre-detractors fresh ammo on a weekly basis. -
