Adam’s Venture: Origins now Available on Nintendo Switch

 

Adam’s Venture Origins released on May 29th from publisher Soedesco.  The game takes place in the 1920’s and you play as Adam Venture and will attempt to unravel the secret of Eden. There will be puzzles to solve and ancient ruins to explore. I personally have not played the game myself, but the story sounds quite interesting, and as you can see from the launch trailer above the game does a nice job capturing the feel of being in an underground temple. I have listed a few of the games features below, best wishes, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

  • Delve into ancient ruins and recover mysterious artifacts
  • Try to solve clever and creative puzzles on your journey
  • Traverse long forgotten tombs and crumbling cities using the grappling hook
  • Get involved in a rich storyline that weaves adventure with historical overtones

This is one I haven’t gotten to play yet but have had my eye on for a bit. Enjoy the trailer, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
