Just adventure has a pay what you want for 3 (if enough sales 4) games: link
The games are:
Darkfall 2: Lights out
And possibly Dead Reefs
Out of those, I've only played Black Mirror, but found it to be a really good adventure game.
Black Mirror is
good. It had a great plot/gameplay/puzzles/setting......when I played it though I got to one bit and it crashed on me though so I never went back to it(Might've been when the days changed during the game/cd switched or something. I forget the exact details right now though.).
I don't know if this has been posted already, but there's currently another indie pay-what-you-want charity type thing going on called Bundle In A Box. Lots of adventure games (including one good but hard to find interactive fiction adventure) are included:
Ben There, Dan That!
Time Gentlemen Please!
1893: A World's Fair Mystery
The Sea Will Claim Everything
If you pay more than average (currently $5.81) you also receive:
Metal Dead http://bundle-in-a-box.com
Oh, and you're helping both the developers and supporting children with mental health problems by donating.
This is a good deal for helping charity and offering good games for cheap, and whatnot, but: I don't want the text adventure(Love em' usually, and I might like this one if I gave it a shot, but I usually have limited funds and dislike paying for such games if possible as I can find free examples of similar games that are just as good if not better in many regards....plus I have that backlog to consider.).
I also don't want the one game "Sea will claim everything" for some of the same reasons as for the text adventure and also because it looks a tad sloppily drawn.(If that makes any sense.)
Plus one of the games I DO want is only if you pay more(Metal Dead)....and while I wouldn't mind paying 3 bucks or so for GR/Ben There, Dan That!, I don't see myself paying twice as much just to get Metal Dead.
Anyone know if Metal Dead is in any other more attractive promos(That I might like.) or what?
Well, if you only want Metal Dead, you can buy it for $4.99 from http://www.indievania.com/games/metal-dead
Not sure if it's a sale, although it's still fairly cheap.
I can personally recommend 1893 (the IF game). It has a fairly huge "world" to explore and a lot of detailed historical anecdotes. As well as an on-going mystery to solve.
Or to just print out the feature list from the website:
-Hundreds of locations on the fairgrounds to explore, as if you were really there
-Over 500 archival photographs illustrate the places you go and the people you meet
-Dozens of interactive characters to encounter
-Carefully researched and historically accurate
-Non-linear gameplay — you control where you want to go and when
-Challenging and unique puzzles
-In-game hint system
-Over thirty hours of gameplay
-1893: A World’s Fair Mystery also includes 3 PDF guidebooks:
-Visitor’s Guide to the World’s Fair
-A Map of the fairgrounds
Sorry, didn't mean to sound like an advertisement XD.
