Apart from adding a number of games from the various Speed IF comps (thanks, Garry), ChickenMan just pointed me towards a new, lengthy podcast from TRS-80 Trash Talk with none other than Scott Adams. The podcast goes into a lot of detail about Scott's career and the inspiration for his various games. Well worth a listen! The bit featuring him starts around the 42:40 mark.

Our reviews section has led a quiet, unassuming life for a long time, but I'm happy to report that it's finally gotten some much-deserved attention. The last two months have seen no less than 19 new reviews, including one for Return to Earth. I hope you'll find some inspiration here, and by all means feel free to submit your own reviews! A particular thank you to Sudders and Zuperfaust for bringing this section to life.
I've also conducted a brief interview with Richard Alexander, who was a prolific publisher for the Sinclair QL. Do give it a read.

Nearly two years after we crossed the 6,000 games threshold, we've reached yet another milestone. The 7,000th game in the database was added today (psssst - it's a Jack the Ripper game)! I would never, ever have thought that the world of adventure games was so widespread. Very impressive. And there seems to be no end to the row of games (IFDb lists 8,078 games so there's one goal to set your sights on).
There's plenty more in the pipeline, but some of us have to go on holiday once in a while, so with apologies for leaving your material hanging, I'll bid you a fine summer (or winter, all depending). Thanks for keeping us alive and kicking!

Among a plethora of new games you'll also find a number of new reviews, by Garry and Sudders. I want to give a nod to both Treasure of Middle Earth (which appears to be a lazy bug fest and has zip to do with a certain fantasy novel) as well as The Sealed City, which at least has a terrific title screen. Yes, I'm a sucker for those! Read on and hopefully be inspired.

Ever felt like being a shark, munching on innocent beach visitors? With 2013's Jaws: The Text Adventure, you can. It's a homage to/parody of the Spielberg blockbuster, browser based but looking like a Spectrum game. A fun, little game which should only gobble up 15 to 20 minutes of your time.
Particular thanks to Garry for his large no. of contributions, and to Sudders for his work on the Jaws files :)

I'm always pleased to see more reviews, as they're an invaluable assistance when it comes to picking and choosing between the nearly 7,000 games in the database. Recently, our user Sudders has been highly active on this front, and you'll find his latest reviews right here.
I'd also like to thank Mousey for his work on adding new Zenobi games for the Atari ST. Much appreciated!
