This was brought to my attention on another site.

Think you know where adventures started? Or maybe you don't and would like to see it in the form of a show. Check out this 5 parter below. It is very well done and even taught me some things I wasn't aware of and explained other things in a way that I understood better what I already knew.

That was very informative GreyFuss, makes you appreciate the development of games more, for me anyway. The first adventure game I ever played was on the Commodore 64, called Zzzzz. Then I went on to the one that really started it all for me, Maniac Mansion. I hope they can keep the point and click genre going for a long time to come. And thanks to a lot of us indie developers we will sunny
