Fire, a point-and-click adventure game without dialogue but with the stone age as a fresh setting, seems to be Daedalic Entertainment‘s newest way to breathe new life into the genre.
It doesn’t happen often that a developer/publisher of classic point-and-click adventures tries something different in a market dominated by the same old formulas (especially in the point-and-clickers of today). Even though item-based puzzles are still prevalent in this title, the use of slapstick and situational comedy without the long dialogue trees the company is known for is recommendable and makes Fire a game worth checking out, especially with those lovely drawn backgrounds and the low price point of just 10 Euros (even for the retail box version). There’s also a small discount of 1 Euro on Steam that lasts until April 16, 2015.
The game that tells the story of Neanderthal Ungh who has to find fire for his village is out now on PC and also iOS. So make sure to let the developer/publisher know that this is a step in the right direction and future of point-and-clickers with intuitive gameplay and an emphasis on fun storytelling.
