Posted in Games, and News

Any of you feel nostalgic for the ’90s FMV era?

Well, okay, probably not. But FMV has come a long way, and titles like MISSING: An Interactive Thriller can show you just how much. Catch the trailer on YouTube!

In the first episode, David Newcastle wakes up to find he is kidnapped and has no idea why. Can he find a way to escape and simultaneously discover his captor’s identity? As Dave looks for a way out, Detective Lambert investigates a series of unusual disappearances.

MISSING blends FMV and Point & Click into a gripping episodic adventure that feels like the natural evolution of film. Seamless transitions from video to puzzles move the story along at a great pace and keep players on their toes throughout the ride.

Gato Salvaje Studio, a Spanish indie developer dedicated to crafting engaging adventure games, announced today that the third chapter of AR-K  will launch Tuesday, July 14 on Steam.

Did she really take that guy home with her? What was his name? And what, exactly, is the Golden Sphere, the mysterious object that seems the source of all Alicia’s woes?

While Episode 3 may be enjoyed on its own without having experienced the previous chapters, players can get caught up on Alicia’s story in the first two installments on PC, iOS or Android at Development of AR-K was made possible via a highly successfully crowdfunding effort on Kickstarter, which raised over $100,000 for the project.

Episode 3 and the upcoming final installment of AR-K are written by Greg Rucka, known for his work on such comics as Action Comics, Batwoman, Detective Comics, Wolverine and the miniseries Superman: World of New Krypton.

After a dizzying escape from a very-near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona find themselves looking for another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the untold riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, Fiona finds help from an unexpected mentor, Rhys continues to share brain-space with the disembodied mind of a dead dictator, and love is in the air. Pursued by the ruthless criminal ‘Queenpin’ Vallory, and with very little help from Vaughn’s accountancy skills (or stellar abs), getting anywhere near the Vault will be entirely up to you.
