Ah, good ol' point-and-click adventures. Don't you think they should make a comeback?
Even if they don't, at least we know a well-respected adventure title from the mind of Jakub Dvorsky is headed to the PlayStation Network. Developed by Amanita Design, Machinarium is scheduled to arrive on the PSN and tablets later this year. According to CasualGaming.biz , Amanita turned their attention to Sony after Microsoft passed on Machinarium ; this sort of supports statements from other PSN developers who say Sony is more willing to take chances on different/innovative concepts. As for the tablet, they haven't quite decided yet but it seems they're shying away from the iPad; they'd rather focus on the Blackberry PlayBook, which arrives in North America next month. For our part, we're always happy to see PSN games that would act as pleasant, relatively unique diversions. And yeah, there was a time when the point-and-click adventure wasn't "unique;" it was actually quite popular.
But even if those days are long gone, we can still revel in past glories. You know, provided the game is good…
