2D first-person point-and-click adventure The Wild Case is out now

By - | Views: 10,972

2D and yet first-person? Imagine playing a hidden object game but it's a point and click adventure, that's sort of what you get with the new release of The Wild Case. Developed by a small indie outfit from Ukraine, Specialbit Studio, the same team behind Angelo and Deemon: One Hell of a Quest.

In The Wild Case you follow the adventures of a sort of paranormal detective, on a journey to a remote village deep in the forest, where strange creatures with glowing eyes terrorize the inhabitants. Sounds pretty spooky overall and it does have some pretty great artwork.

Those artworks deserve a special mention, though

Isn't that just one of these newer hidden object games? Because they all fit that description.

Yes, the "hidden object" genre has changed, it's much more adventure these days.

Even modern HO games still have the inappropriately placed puzzles and a bunch of hidden object search screens. They may have done away with those and extended the rest. That would definitely make it a departure form the "hidden object" genre.
