Are they not making Adventure Games anymore?
They had some of the best, well designed games.

The last I heard from them is the making of the last episode of the casual game - Fall Trilogy.

Maybe others have a later news.

I agree - I love their games.

I think they had money problems -- they couldn't get a publisher interested in funding development of any of their adventure game proposals. So they're trying to raise money with their casual game series.

Hello,
We have recently finished the last chapter of The Fall Trilogy and it will be released very soon.

We have also just started a new title!

We have mainly done work for hire until 2009 but most of the publishers we have working for had more and more trouble to finance new "large" adventure titles for different reasons (retail violent drop down, price drop down, piracy, US$ drop down compare to Euro, more competitive market, more plateforms... less revenues!)

So we have decided to self finance our productions using revenues from the previous titles to finance the coming titles. That's why we are devevelopping less titles and we have targeted the digital distribution. Creating downloadable Casual Games was a good solution for an independant studio!

With The Fall Trilogy, the idea was to propose an adventure/puzzle game quite similar to what we have done with Safecracker 2. Each games are standalone titles but like for a TV-Show it is better to play them in the order to better understand the clues about the story.

Games are smaller than our past large file games, but also cheaper and I guess with the same level of quality/professionnalism.

Thank you to Gameboomers' community for supporting adventure games!

"Thank you to Gameboomers' community for supporting adventure games!"

Thank you, KSTeam, for sticking with us and making them! One of these days, I hope you'll be able to go back to adventure games 'in the box' and make a mint off them. <g>

Okay, so maybe I'm a dreamer but you never know.

Gil.

KSTeam, thank you so much for giving us an update.
It is nice to know you are still at it.
Fall Trilogy has been challening and fun.
But no one has made adventure games quite like you. Maybe one day...
