You must become his conscience and lead him through the struggles and strange encounters of the Interworld Road.

case.

Pathologic Classic HD - Steam\GOG
Gambitious Digital Entertainment | Ice-pick Lodge, General Arcade

The original Indie Cult Classic returns fully restored, and more evocative than ever.

Pathologic Classic HD is the Definitive Edition of the original Cult Classic Psychological First-Person Survival game.

The game represents a unique and unforgettable experience as it transports players in a weird town which crouches, ominous, in the far reaches of an ancient steppe. It was once a small drover settlement, huddled around a monstrous abattoir—but something about the butchery it was near has changed it.
It has developed an odd social structure over the course of several generations.
It could have quietly continued along its weird way, but a sudden outbreak of an unknown and inevitably lethal disease has decimated the citizens.

Subject 13 - Steam\GOG
Daedalic Entertainment | Paul Cuisset, Microids

Play as Franklin Fargo, a quiet physics professor who has led a bitter existence ever since his fiancée died in a holdup in which he was supposed to be the victim. One morning, he wakes up in the middle of an abandoned scientific facility. His only link with the outside world is a voice that calls him "Subject 13".

Technobabylon - Steam\GOG
Wadjet Eye Games | Technocrat Games

The year 2087 is upon us — a future where genetic engineering is the norm, the addictive Trance has replaced almost any need for human interaction, and an omnipresent AI named Central powers the city. Its all-seeing CEL police force keeps tabs on everyone, including three people who are about to meet their maker.

Tengami - Steam
Nyamyam

Tengami is an atmospheric adventure game set inside a Japanese pop-up book. Fold and slide the beautifully crafted paper world to solve puzzles and discover secrets.

The Charnel House Trilogy - Steam
Mastertronic | Owl Cave

A train's whistle sounds in the dead of night. Snow falls on deserted tracks. Somewhere, in the city, a woman prepares to leave on a journey that will change her life. Somewhere, in the country, a man drives to his final destination.

Witness The Charnel House Trilogy, the chronicle of one fateful night aboard a train bound for Augur Peak. Three thrilling, horrifying adventure games in one, from the depths of the Sepulchre, starring Madeleine Roux, Peter Willington, Jonathan Grier, Jim Sterling, and Ben Chandler as Grub.

The Coma: Cutting Class - Steam
Devespresso Games

"Where is everybody?"

You were just another normal high school student in Korea. You had just sat down for your final exam, exhausted from an all-night cramming session. The result of all your preparation, and those grueling hours spent studying was dozing off in the middle of the test.

You awake to find yourself alone - no one had bothered to wake you when class was over. Night has begun, and you decide to head home. If you can…

The Park - Steam
Funcom

Amusement parks are happy places, filled with the innocent joys of childhood and the exhilarating rush of hair-raising, but safe adventure. Balloons, cotton candy and fantastic rides to be dared. Perhaps that is how Lorraine pictured it too when she brought her son Callum to one… just before it descended into the most terrifying nightmare of her life.

The Secret of Tremendous Corporation - Steam
Sebastian Krzyszkowiak, Konrad Burandt, Paweł Radej

In the near future, thanks to copyright and patent law abuse, all of the gaming industry became controlled by one corporation, producing low quality but highly profitable casual freemium games and ceasing development of any other more ambitious genres. Any game development outside of the company became outlawed, ending the era of indie games.

Assist young Max Burton, a mighty gamedev wannabe and enthusiastic fresh intern on his first day at his first job in the only gamedev company out there in this short, (soon to be) award-winning free point-and-click adventure game. Explore the deepest SECRETs™ of the Tremendous Corporation®. Find out what happened to indie devs and save the gaming industry!

Tormentum - Dark Sorrow - Steam
OhNoo Studio

A nameless hero finds himself in a place between fantasy and nightmare. He doesn't remember his name nor where he comes from. Wandering through strange lands, he struggles to discover the truth about the world around him, as well as about himself.

The story begins as the protagonist wakes up locked in a metal cage hanging below a large flying machine. It becomes clear he is its passenger against his will and the machine's destination is unknown. The only vague memory he can summon in his mind is that of a sculpture atop a hill, depicting human hands reaching towards the sky.

Those are, however, the least of his problems as the airship descends its flight towards a huge, gloomy castle which soon becomes his prison. Thus begins the surreal story bordering somewhere between dream and reality…

White Night - Steam
Activision | OSome Studio

Stranded and injured in the dead of night after an unfortunate automobile accident, players must investigate a nearby dilapidated mansion and interact with their surroundings in search of aid and answers. White Night challenges players to confront the nightmares of the past on an adventure in which darkness is the enemy… and darkness is everywhere.

Also, you are dead.

To figure out why, you will need to inhabit the other residents of the ship and use them to investigate what led to your untimely demise. As a ghost, you can take control of characters in the game, and talk to others - based on who you are controlling and who you are talking to, there is a unique conversation. With each combination of characters leading to a different interaction based on their relationship or chemistry, your challenge is to find the interactions that will reveal pertinent information. Understand what makes your shipmates tick, and uncover the secrets that they hold.

I̶ h̶a̶v̶e̶n̶'̶t̶ ̶p̶o̶s̶t̶e̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶o̶b̶v̶i̶o̶u̶s̶ ̶o̶n̶e̶s̶ ̶(̶T̶e̶l̶l̶t̶a̶l̶e̶'̶s̶ ̶a̶d̶v̶e̶n̶t̶u̶r̶e̶s̶,̶ ̶d̶r̶e̶a̶m̶f̶a̶l̶l̶,̶ ̶k̶e̶n̶t̶u̶c̶k̶y̶,̶ ̶r̶e̶r̶e̶a̶l̶e̶s̶e̶s̶)̶ and I know I missed some so feel free to post them.

Cool list, thanks for sharing.

I'll add a few that possibly fall in the non-obvious category as well.

SpaceVenture
"Remember the Space Quest series from Sierra's duo the Two Guys From Andromeda? Well they are back & making a brand new SpaceVenture™!"

(Image source).

Vane
"A child with an odd ability stuck in a strange land. A dangerous natural environment inhabited by a strange civilization. Vane is an open-world adventure game based on mystery and exploration."


NightCry
"A brand new horror game from Hifumi Kono, the creator of the Clock Tower game series, and Takashi Shimizu, the director of The Grudge."


Armikrog
"From the creators of the Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood games, comes a ground breaking stop motion clay animated adventure game called Armikrog."


Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
"(…) an openworld, post-apocalyptic adventure to be released on Playstation 4."

(Image source).

Interesting list.

You can find many more, I think, if you go to the German site AdventureTreff and just quickly look over the names printed in bold in the newsbits. AT is one of the world's 3 biggest adventure sites.

The new game by Pendulo Studios is missing for example, and the Oak Island Kickstarter - already funded - by the guy who made that very good Zak MacKraken fan adventure.

I wasn't aware of the existence of Reloaded version 2.0.

But Al Lowe has left the company so he will probably not be involved in any future Larry projects.

Well, I didn't know he left. I should check his own web site.

I bought it at retail, by the way. The 1.0 (without naming it so) was discounted earlier.

Publisher here for it is UIG - the same with that Realms Of Arcania Remake desaster.

Edit : That's how it looks like : http://www.amazon.de/Leisure-Suit-La…y+reloaded+2.0
