    The creators of ASA : A space Adventure released Kitrinos, a small game which looks fun :

    By the way it seems it was made for the AdventureJam2018 and I've not played it yet, but from the games I've played from the jam I can recommend :
    - SnowSpirit, very atmospheric game by the guy making Cascade quest who also made Void quest and the Snails Trek series.

    - Space Quest 1 which really plays like a tiny Sierra game like the presentation suggests.

    That's one tiny headed protag. I guess you can go too far when moving away from animu aesthetics.

    Interesting didn't know they were making a Blacksad game,is it going to be an original story or is it going to be an adaptation of one of the comics?
    I think the two goons in the screenshots appear in one of the comics

    Kitrinos looks really nice. I'm gonna have to check it out, especially since it's from the devs behind ASA.

    There's way too much Telltale in top 10 and some remasters of old games. Kinda weird to see Broken Age and The Cave are only new releases up there.

    I am still surprised more people don't play heroine's quest, it's the best new adventure game outside of primordia and it's free.

    Cool, reminds me of this, which I have lost hope of ever seeing completed, since there hasn't been an update in over a year now:
