Application Systems Heidelberg, joined by Alasdair Beckett-King (Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet) is a developer/publisher working with three-man indie studio Backwoods Entertainment to bring us the point-and-click mystery adventure Unforeseen Incidents. The game has been inspired by programs such as The X-Files and Lost.

Is it possible to fight for the future of the world armed only with a multi-tool? Well, as small-town handyman Harper Pendrell, that’s what you’re going to discover in Unforeseen Incidents. Harper will stumble into a mystery concerning an unknown disease, complete with a conspiracy and dangerous fanatics.

What is Harper to do? The disease is spreading across the country, and he can’t stop something this big all by himself. He must find some help!

Will Harper be willing to expose the truth, even if it means his own demise? The only way to find out will be to play Inforeseen Incidents.

The game, featuring beautiful, hand-painted 2D graphics, a cast of interesting characters and lots of intriguing locations, is to be released in Q4 2017 for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. Meanwhile, it will be putting in an appearance at Gamescom 2017 in Cologne, Germany, which runs August 23-26.

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. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
