I never thought that I would be up until the early hours of the morning playing a simulation about the 19th century North American oil rush, but thanks to Gamious that is exactly what happened.

Idea Factory International unveiled some new screenshots from the upcoming release Amnesia: Memories™. The images feature Shin, one of the bachelors that the protagonist in the game will encounter.

Apparently only true love can solve the mystery behind his hardened heart and it is up to players to discover whether childhood friendship can blossom into romance

One suicide, three investigators and a whole town of shady characters to question. That about sums up Knee Deep, but the focus on conversations, intriguing story and unique visual presentation definitely make it worth a second look. It is more of a visual novel than a typical point & click adventure, but will definitely hook anyone who loves a good story and memorable characters.
Gameplay: The focus of the game is on the story and not puzzle solving, so expect plenty of conversations.
Graphics: Character models look a little stiff, but overall the visual style works well.
Sound: No voice acting, but the soundtrack is very good
The way that Anna’s Quest manages to combine its engaging story and charming characters with plenty of humor and even some darker elements make it a treat to play.

Gameplay: Puzzles that are challenging, but logical, ensures that the game remains entertaining.
Graphics: Charming visuals and great animations.
Sound: Nice music and very good voice acting
