When you say “Game Beta”, you immediately think “Multiplayer Beta” because… That’s what Betas are for right? To test the Multiplayer, the servers, getting rid of some possible glitches, exploits and bugs, etc…
So why does a game that is singleplayer exclusive have a Beta? I asked myself that question while I played Dark Souls 3 during the time that it took for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst to download. Now the boss-man had asked for to make an impressions vid, so I complied. I set up my Elgato and waited for the game to install.

To find a good puzzle adventure game today is a hard task to complete. A game that only offers an exclusive story with different mind-bending puzzles without any combat mechanics or a sense of deep exploration, often isn’t enough to stand out amongst other action-puzzle- adventure games like the Uncharted and Tomb Raider series. “Adam’s Venture: Origins” isn’t really trying to compete with these big titans on the market as some people might think, but it wants to be a standalone enjoyable game that takes you back to a place where games were just simple reworks of existing puzzles set in a fantasy environment. You can compare it with “Lost Horizon”. The game succeeds in bringing an old game genre back but because of the weak story and dull characters, it will lose some of its potential to create a returning community.
