They´re too much work for a hobbyist to create (especially with non-linear plots) and since the sierra branch closed ...
we won´t be seeing any more of Larry..
PS: I think that the same goes for good RPGs. THere´s a lot of good ideas around but unless someone big gobbles them up there´s not much chance of them being realised(IMHO). No one be mad, please, but i guess that´s the way it is.
I´d be glad if you could prove me wrong though....

It''s a thrilling game having a strong story
(A story at least )
I''ve designed a RPG that will be one of my next project, cause after the thrilling one I will make a MMO game with many other people...
And cause we aren''t clueless all will be mathematically defined in the game... Much freedom and never ending ''research''.
Forget to mention it''s a spatial game.

My guess is that a great deal of adventure game lovers found they could survive on RPGs as well, then just didn''t complain when new Adventure games became sparse.
Most of what is being talked about seems like it is getting closer and closer to an adventure game feel in RPGs. I would much rather the end result of this mating be called Adventure rather than "Role-playing Games", which is an entirely inaccurate title. Oh well.

any genre for a few years now*quickly moves this idea to a new post*

In fact, I know one is in the making and it looks pretty nice. I think the official plug for the game (Enigma) will follow shortly

Yes, we are making a new and (dare I say) revolutionary adventure game in realtime 3D over at Atypical Interactive that will PROVE that the adventure genre is not dead! How could it be? Enigma sports a great story with lots of interesting characters, new and nonlinear puzzles dealing with real-world skills ... take a look at the site, THEN decide if you''d like to play it! Don''t just discard it cause it''s an adventure game!
