Adventure games aren't nearly as popular as they once were, but for anyone who grew up playing titles like Day of the Tentacle or Sam & Max Hit The Road, they retain a fond place in our hearts. After spending some time with the demo for Daedalic Entertainment's The Whispered World, it looks like fans of the genre are going to be in for a major treat when the game appears later this month.
The Whispered World takes place in a fairy tale setting and stars Sadwick, a morose little clown who hates working for his family's depressed traveling circus. Part of the boy's foul mood is due to the fact that he hasn't had a good night's sleep in months, thanks to a recurring nightmare that implies he'll have something to do with the end of the world. Sadwick's only friend is his overgrown caterpillar, Spot, who follows him wherever he goes.
