It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of UK-based Glitch Games. Their Forever Lost trilogy and All That Remains: Episode 1 are some of the best adventure/puzzle games I’ve played. Glitch continues to prove that the point-and-click genre is alive and well and that story, puzzles, and clever writing are the real keys to a great game.

I have been following the progress of Veritas for almost a year and I’ve played two iterations of demos on my Android tablet. I am delighted to report that Glitch has continued their tradition of intriguing adventures with this newest title.

You wake in the basement of Veritas Industries. In a familiar Glitch theme, you are lost and confused and must puzzle your way to the truth and the building’s exit. You begin to realize that the company has been conducting human experiments and that you may have been a willing participant in medical research gone wild.

The facility is now abandoned and, as you sift through the debris left behind by former residents and employees, a sinister truth begins to be revealed. The puzzles and puns are ever present and discerning solutions, on my own, was extremely satisfying. The second demo included only a portion of the story, but it was polished and glitch-free (no pun intended). I am now eagerly awaiting the chance to finish my adventure and discover the truth.

The Glitch guys, Graham Ranson and Simon Pearce, are continuing to fine-tune Veritas and it is still “Coming Soon.” In the meantime, you can add it to your wish list on Steam and be notified as soon as it is available.

Cindy’s love affair with gaming began when she opened a mailbox in front of a white house and took the first step in a long series of adventures. ‘Back in the day,’ Cindy was a regular contributor to JA and an active member of the online gaming community. She has attended several E3s and has had the pleasure of spending time in person with both Ray and Randy. Her all- time favorite adventures include the Tex Murphy series, the Gabriel Knight series, and The Longest Journey. She also enjoys RPGs and her list of ‘best ever’ includes Fallout, Asheron’s Call, and Planescape Torment. Â Frustrated with the cost of rising PC system requirements, Cindy decided to switch to console and tablet gaming. Although you can teach some old dogs new tricks, she discovered that console controller dexterity is a skill set that she is lacking. Her results with tablet gaming were not much better. With the exception of a few gems such as The Room and Forever Lost, there is a limit to how much one can play Candy Crush and Hidden Object Adventures. Having proved that pure escapism is worth the investment, she has a new gaming laptop and is back to her search for the perfect adventure. Â After spending most of her life in Los Angeles and Atlanta, Cindy escaped the stress of urban life and moved to rural Arkansas. To show that she has become a true Arkansan, she has taken up deer hunting, wears pink camo, and put a chicken coop in her backyard. On a stressful day, she can be heard yelling ‘Woo Pig Sooie’ when all else fails.
