Consoles, PCs, handhelds, Facebook, smartphones — the world of gaming is becoming increasingly confusing and fragmented, but don’t worry, we’re here to simplify things for you.

This Week’s Indie Adventure Game

The Blackwell Epiphany (PC, Apr. 24th)

The Blackwell games are a series of decidedly old-school adventure games starring a medium and her ghost friend solving mysteries. They’re not groundbreaking, but they fill that Monkey Island/Beneath a Steel Sky void. The game isn’t available on Steam yet, but you can download it here.

This Week’s Music-Adventure Mashup

FRACT OSC (PC & Mac, Apr. 22nd)

Well, this one certainly gets the gold star for most unique concept this week. FRACT is an adventure game in which you explore an open world using music. FRACT essentially takes place inside a giant synthesizer, and as you explore and repair the world, you’ll gain the ability to create music in new ways. Looks like mind-bendy fun.

This Week’s Space Strategy Game

The Last Federation (PC, Mac & Linux, Apr. 20th)

The Last Federation is a turn-based tactical combat game in which you control a fleet of spaceships and wage war across an entire alien galaxy. The game may not be visually astounding, but it looks like it packs a ton of depth, with eight different alien races and countless different ships to choose from.
