Indie developers are leading a renaissance in the adventure game genre. By experimenting and taking risks in the games they create, these developers challenge gamers' perceptions on what makes a good game.

Chaos on Deponia

Chaos on Deponia

A common formula employed in adventure games use humor to add flavors to the storytelling. Some games successfully use humor to enhance the story, while other games overuse humor that slows the story down.
