Apple on Adventure Gaming
9:21 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Web site author, MacHome Journal editor and graphic designer Chris McVeigh has penned an article for Apple's game page entitled "Worlds to Explore: Adventure Gaming on the Mac." Rather than focusing on any one title, the article explores the entire genre of adventure gaming through brief discussions of examples of the genre. Noting eleven examples of the genre in total, the article presents short previews of Myst III: Exile, Escape from Monkey Island and Beyond Atlantis, complete with short video clips of the games in action.

If you are a hardcore FPS or RTS gamer who has never really considered a MYST-like title, this may be the article that broadens your horizons. Here's an excerpt:

Adventure games emphasize exploration and discovery. As you move around these new worlds, you’ll come across objects you can pick up or manipulate in some manner. It is your task to figure out the significance of these items, and how they can further your quest. In some cases you’ll have to combine the items to overcome an obstacle. You might have to join a crankshaft to a pulley, for example, to raise a drawbridge. Other times, you may have to offer an item to someone (or something) to coax them to help you out. This can range from a mysterious book to a simple banana — in adventure games, the characters you encounter tend to have strange agendas of their own.
