Mr. Agustin Cordes of Argentina is back this week to tell us about his Asylum kickstarter. In brief, he's trying to raise $100,666 to fund the last bit of development for what looks like an awesome "node-based" 3D graphical adventure. Unlike (ahem) other Kickstarters, he's got a working prototype (the "Interactive Teaser"). Josh Mandel is voicing the main character--and doing a fantastic job, of course. You might remember my interviews with him back in October of 2011. Anyway, enjoy the vid, and please pledge to Agustin's kickstarter quickly if you want that gorgeous boxed copy.

Hi, guys! I'm back this week with the final installment of my interview with Quest for Glory designers Lori Ann and Corey Cole. In this segment, we chat about the ill-fated Quest for Glory V, focusing on why it wasn't the game it should have been. We wrap up with more juicy details about their upcoming Hero U project, which was successfully funded a short while back. I also sample the beer some have called "The Best Beer in the World."

No doubt following Telltale Games' lead with the success of Sam & Max Season One, Funcom recently announced plans to develop Dreamfall Chapters, an online episodic sequel to the recent GAG Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.
Here's a bit from the press release:
. Funcom naturally welcomes the continued cultural acceptance of computer games as a medium comparable to film and television. Fans can now look forward to new online chapters in one of the most popular adventure sagas of all time.
Each new installment of â€˜Dreamfall Chaptersâ€™ will initially be delivered as online-only content, but there may be retail releases with combined chapters, both for console and PC, at a later stage.
