All of the excitement with Double Fine's Kickstarter project for a new point and click adventure game has me thinking about my experiences with the genre. I decided to become a backer (my first time backing a Kickstarter project!), and now I am itching to get my hands on a point and click game.
My gaming career has brought me to a few offerings, like Day of the Tentacle and Monkey Island, but by far my most extensive point and click gaming took place via Putt Putt Goes to the Moon.
Putt Putt was a series of educational games for kids, and my cousin had a copy. I freaking loved this game. It was ridiculously fun, as are all point and click games. You can watch this short play-thru, if you'd like more information.
As of right now, I don't own any. That is so sad. What are the most recent point and click games? Where can I find them? Which ones will play on my Mac? A lot of great, older computer games require emulators to play on current systems, and who uses emulators anymore?
And why doesn't the DS have more point and click games? It seems like the perfect vessel for such a thing. I know Hotel Dusk: Room 215 was pretty much a point and click, and that game was positively amazing. I traded in my copy, something I regret very badly.
