Classic Horror Adventure Game 'Sanitarium' Is Getting An Android Port By DotEmu, Set For October 29th

The point-and-click adventure game genre is one of the most immersive around. It typically doesn't seek to draw you in with over-the-top action sequences. Instead, you're drawn in by the sheer amount of attention and focus you must give to each detail as you click on every corner of the screen. When something freaks you out, part of the fear comes from just how hard you've been staring.

Sanitarium is one such game from nearly two decades ago. Released in 1998, the PC horror game sucked players into the mind of an amnesiac in a world teetering on the edge of madness.

Gabriel Knight: Sins Of The Fathers, Another Classic Adventure Game, Comes To The Play Store

Fans of point-and-click adventure games are spoiled for choice on mobile platforms. It seems like every week we get a new game or a remastered classic for connoisseurs to chew on. This week's special is Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers, a 1993 Sierra original that was remastered last year. This tale of a bookstore owner investigating a series of murders on New Orleans is one of the favorites of the genre.

Ubisoft Publishes WWI Drama Game Valiant Hearts: The Great War For Android And Android TV

Valiant Hearts isn't your usual war game. You won't be blasting through thousands of bad guys like BJ Blazkowitz, you won't be commanding an entire army like an over-the-top Command & Conquer general. Valiant Hearts is incredibly story focused, as it considers itself more of a playable comic book than a video game. It's also about World War I, which hasn't exactly been a popular subject for video games.

This trailer is for the PC and console version, but the mobile version looks very similar.

In the various episodes of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, you'll follow the stories of a German family living in France as the war begins, after which the father is deported and drafted into the German army.

Doggins Is A Game About A Dapper Dog Who Travels Through Time And Relative Dimensions In Space

All dogs are time travellers. On a technical level, anyway: they move around through three dimensions while progressing through the fourth at a constant rate. But the charming hero of the adventure game Doggins has one less dimension to travel through, so he makes up for his 2D affliction by blasting himself backwards in time. If you want to see how (not to mention why) you'll have to play the game, now available for four bucks on the Play Store.

Doggins starts off as it means to go on: weirdly. As the game begins a monocled squirrel most pointedly does not invite you to "a grand celebration of villainy" at his diabolical party tree.

Official Android 'Five Nights At Freddy's' Port Might Just Scare The Pants Off Anyone Willing To Volunteer For This Stupid Job

Five Nights at Freddy's might just be the most nerve-wracking week you will ever experience. In this point-and-click survival horror game, players are responsible for watching over Freddy Fazbear's Pizza between the hours of midnight and 6AM. As it turns out, these just so happen to be the hours that the animatronic robots at this place of amusement and fun happen to wander the halls. They're made of metal and wires, not flesh and blood, yet for some reason they still have the tendency to stick night watch workers in their mouths. As you would imagine, it tends not to end well.
