Adventure Games

Subreddit for the discussion and appreciation of the adventure game genre.

What's an adventure game?

Adventure games are typically story-driven titles in which the player assumes the role of the protagonist. Gameplay usually consists of dialogue and environment-based narratives explored via solving puzzles. They are often linear but many modern titles have experimented with branching paths, multiple endings, and innovative gameplay elements, such as Resonance's short-term and long-term memory feature. Despite rumours to the contrary, the genre is decidedly not dead.

Example titles

  • The Secret of Monkey Island
  • Police Quest
  • Broken Sword
  • The Blackwell Series
  • Resonance
  • The Journey Down
  • Day of the Tentacle
  • Grim Fandango
  • Tex Murphy

Subreddit Guidelines

  • Spoiler tags must be used! Yes, even if the spoiler is for a 20 year old title.

Example: [[Madre de Dios! It's El Pollo Diablo!](\/spoiler)] [Madre de Dios! It's El Pollo Diablo!](/spoiler)

  • Piracy is not condoned here. There aren't any feelies in a torrent file so what's the point?

  • No, abandonware isn't okay, either.

  • Let's Plays - You can post them, but only under the following conditions:

  • Only one short part of an LP series may be submitted, provided it is spoiler free
  • You may not make a separate submission with another part of an LP series until at least 7 days have passed since posting the previous part
  • The URL must go directly to the video in question and must not link to a playlist
  • You may not link to further parts in the comments
  • LPs of well known games (for example any LucasArts title) are completely prohibited
  • You may or may not be notified if your LP submission is removed - it will not be reinstated
  • You should consider posting to /r/LetsPlayVideos instead of here

  • Remember: Adventure games are NOT DEAD!
