Additional Information for my talk on “Point and Click Adventures” as of May, 11zh 2017 at Cologne Game Lab.
Here you can find a Timetable of published Milestones of the Adventure Game Genre. The PDF itself has links to all listed games – most will link to Mobygames.com. Mobygames offers short descriptions, links, and metadata about many games. See for example Maniac Mansion, or The Secret Of Monkey Island.
In Game Jokes
Here you find some funny situations, or discussions about them in Point & Click Adventures. Most entertaining may be the quarrel between LucasArts, and Sierra – the most important companies during the late 80s and early 90s in the Adventure game market.
From the Blog of Ron Gilbert (Creator of the very first Point & Click Adventure “Maniac Mansion”): Why Adventure Games Suck.
