Tick’s Tales: Up All Knight is a combination of colorful retro-graphics and modern comedic narrative that’s both a send-up and homage to classic point-and-click quest adventures. It’s a combination of tough puzzles, engaging narrative and quick-witted humor.

Tick is a troublemaker who wants to be a hero in order to earn the love of Georgia McGorgeous. To do so, he must prove his worth by passing tests of Strength, Courage and Wisdom; yank the Sword of Blergh from its stone; and save Georgia — not to mention his entire town — from the clutches of the evil goblin Bloodclot. All in a day’s work, eh?

Bryce Covert, creator and one-man team behind Tick’s Tales: I was so entranced by the adventure games of the late ’80s that I learned how to read in order to play them. All of the elements that I grew up loving in this genre made their way into Tick’s Tales in some form or another. I wanted it to have it all — the unique puzzles, clever humor, and the lighthearted spirit of adventures past, while certainly being something new and entertaining.

Tick’s Tales: Up All Knight will be available on June 9th for Windows, Mac, and Linux from the Phoenix Online Store, Steam, the Humble Store and other online retailers for $7.99.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
