There was a time when adventure games, driven by a charming and compelling narrative, were actually common. As technology advanced and general interest began to gravitate toward faster and flashier, our video games changed. Priorities shifted, which is why big-budget productions today often don’t rely on the dramatic and cerebral. We’ve also lost a lot of that whimsical, goodhearted charm; much of what we see today is extremely dark, gritty and even downright disgusting. That’s why a trip down memory lane with Manny Calavera and friends is just so darn refreshing.
