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.

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.
