NEW GAMES TO JUMP
- LAUNCHING JUNE 1: Tardy—In this adventure game by One Wing Cicada, players take on the role of Ramtok, who isn’t quite the smartest guy in the universe. He enjoys finding troubles—and solving them—but when he woke up alone on a strange spaceship, it was too much even for him. He has no experience piloting this ship filled with heaps of weird devices created by a schizophrenic engineer. Tardy is a questing game requiring players to fiddle with computers, terminals, gadgets, and other high-tech scrap to help Ramtok solve the mystery of the crew disappearance and safely return home. (Retail price: $6.99)
- The Last Door: Collector’s Edition (Episode 1)—Players feel what it’s truly like to be alone in the dark with this low-res, high-suspense, point-and-click horror adventure game from The Game Kitchen. This game-of-the-year winner is set in Victorian England, and main character Jeremiah Devitt receives a letter from his old schoolmate Anthony Beechworth with a hidden, cryptic message. Immediately he knows something is wrong. His journey to an abandoned manor is only the beginning as he starts to remember a long-buried secret from his youth—discovering things man was not meant to know and opening doors that should have remained closed. The Last Door: Collector’s Editioncontains four terrifying episodes of occult and otherworldly horror that invites players to investigate Victorian England’s deepest, darkest secret, featuring new scenes and puzzles, enhanced graphics, unlockable bonuses, and remastered sound. (Four-episode collection retail price: $7.49*)
- The Enchanted Cave 2 MEGA UPDATE—The Enchanted Cave 2 (currently available on Jump) developer Dustinaux adds a MEGA UPDATE featuring three new challenge modes and full controller support for all desktop versions, as well as numerous other new additions to heroes, items, monsters, and more. Each of the new challenge modes takes the base game and adds its own twist on it as a shortened 50-floor adventure. Players can explore a dungeon crammed with more varied monsters in the “Monster’s Lair,” or try out the cave as a maze with limited visibility in “The Labyrinth.” Each new hero also has its own unique starting stats. (Retail price: $9.99*)
- Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, Episode 3 “The Oracle”—When a trail of clues—and bodies—lead Erica to the luxurious Enthon Towers, her postcognitive powers leave her unable to escape the dark betrayals in its past. The shocking truth about the Oracle’s identity is revealed, along with the killer’s connection to Erica’s own tragic past. No longer sure who she can trust, if anyone, Erica is determined to find the truth, no matter what the cost. This version of the game includes “Game of the Year” bonus features: director’s commentary, concept art, storyboards, outtakes, and other behind-the-scenes material about the development. Winner of six 2013 Reader’s Choice Aggie Awards, including Game of the Year, Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller features contributions from veteran game designer Jane Jensen (Gabriel Knight, Gray Matter) and comic book artist Romano Molenaar (Batman, X-Men, The Darkness). (Four-episode collection retail price: $14.99)
