I'm playing "Yesterday" right now and it's not as humorous as their previous games.

It's OK so far, but nothing has WoWed me.

I disliked Gray Matter enough that I gave up trying to make it work right. Part of the problem was that the game didn't play well on my XP Pro, 148 gig, AMD TurionX2 64 laptop, being slow to load and respond in general. Also, I had trouble with cursor response and had to click on items several times to pick them up or reveal them. Those may be technical problems and maybe just mine, but I hated the character, her voice, her annoying running monologue and not-very-funny attempts at humor and lightness. I may try again but I doubt it.

I'm not entirely sure what adventure games I played in 2013 - seems a long time ago already! - but since you mentioned "The Next Big Thing" I have to tell you, I absolutely loved that game. Humour, puzzles, aesthetics, plot, characters - I loved them all!

The Journey Down: Over the Edge was also great fun.

Well, since I'm sitting here getting covered with cobwebs waiting for Troll Song (just kidding, CaptainD), I may as well stick my two cents in.
What the heck did I play in 2013?
I hate to say this but the only game I'm sure I played for the first time then was an RPG and I loved it so much it's #2 on my list of greats right behind Grim Fandango.

2013 wasn't the year of The Next Big Thing, was it?
I did enjoy that one, particularly the "dog". grin

I haven't played everything that's been released in the last year,
but some of the games I played relatively recently (and which I thought were the most memorable) are:
  • The Inner World
  • Lilly Looking Through - short, but very charming
  • Oknytt - based on Swedish folklore, needs to be played at night

A couple of games that look good but which I haven't played very far into yet are:
  • Night of the Rabbit
  • Memoria

I can't remember now all of the games I played in 2013 but my favourite is probably The Cat Lady.

My favourite of 2014 so far is Moebius which I've just finished.

I did enjoy The Next Big Thing which I found more interesting than I thought I would & I loved Gray Matter!

Chrissie, I too REALLY enjoyed "The Cat Lady". It seems that we BOTH have great taste in games. LOL

Sadly, the Half-Price books in Arlington, Texas has a copy of Gray Matter in the clearance section brand new for $2 dollars.

I would love to see it have a happy home - it is such a great game.

I'm STILL playing physical PC games and will be for quite sometime - I have a HUGE backlog of PC games.

Then - "Cat Lady" and Jane's new adventure game are on the top of my list.

So far in 2014 "Murder on the Orient Express" is by far my favorite.
