Let's Play Adam's Venture Chronicles

Adam's Venture is a Christian-themed puzzle/adventure title. There aren't many religious games, and Adam's Venture has the distinction of actually being pretty decent, gameplay-wise. It's got an Uncharted-esque adventure feeling, but mostly revolves around logic/math puzzles. It was originally released as three separate episodes, but I'm playing the collected version because it's both cheaper and available on the PS3. I felt compelled to share this game primarily because it's strange, so although it isn't awful, I wouldn't place your hopes too high. It's still pretty mediocre by all traditional standards.

So, let's go on a friendly play-date with god. Just don't spoil anything.



1. The Search Begins
2. Leap of Faith
3. Hold On Tight
4. Eden



1. Airport Escape
2. Temple Mount
3. Excavation Site
4. Down The Well
5. Solomon's Throne Room



1. Two Years Ago
2. Into The Depths
3. Luz, France
4. The End?

This time we hang from ledges a whole lot. Would you believe we're almost done with the first act?

The guy on the title pic is so thinly-disguised it might as well be Nathan Drake doing a favor for some priest.

I do have to say, for being both a religious game and having a small team, it does seem is competently made. Not great, but far from the worst.

And if you hadn't spoiled it, I would have guessed the black cloud to be either a generic demon, Satan (him/her/it)self, or Lilith.

It's not exactly subtle about its inspiration, but at least the gameplay is different.

I do say in the last video of this act that I think it may be Satan, but I don't have enough to go on.

Probably is Satan. I've played a few games like this (although the FPS where you played an Angel I think wasn't actually a Christian game...) and Satan is always the one who opposes you. Such is the way of things.

I assumed Adam's Torch is his Faith. It goes out in water because that's what he figures torches do, and it doesn't burn all of those ropes because he didn't think about it. That, and I thought the entire room would be about keeping it lit as a puzzle during the clambering about.

e: And I like the hat-touching.

A little EQ, a touch of reverb, slap on some compression and there. That'll get your dickbutt jiggling.

Man you are NOT pacing yourself here. Digging the couple I saw so far though!

Evelyn's last name...is Appleby?

I love it. Oh my goodness I love it.

I'm a little disappointed the game isn't laughably bad, but there's still enough jank for it to be charming. From the game's insufferable characters to its clunky acting, there's magic.

Also, it appears that Adam's Venture Chronicles is on sale on Steam. Less than ten bucks! Now THAT's a treasure!!! There's even a page for the upcoming "Adam's Venture: Origins" that promises a "next-gen" experience.
