I've been with JA since 2003; I'm the resident hermit. I'm also a freelance digital artist. My avatar is one of my creations. I started out at JA as tender of The JAVE (Just Adventure Virtual Encyclopedia, which is not currently part of the site), and also wrote reviews. In 2008, JA's former owner, Randy Sluganski, invited me to become the site's webmaster. I continued to maintain the site and The JAVE until JA was sold to Shane. Fortunately, I got to stay and became  website administrator. I love games. Adventure games are my first love, followed by RPG, FPS and RTS. But if a game is good, the genre doesn't really matter to me. I especially like games that are dark, scary, creepy, sickening, disgusting...you get the idea. My favorites are The Cat Lady, Scratches: The Director's Cut and Still Life (the first one only). In the realm of my favorite non-scarys are Syberia I and II, TLJ, Dreamfall, Culpa Innata and the older Nancy Drew games. I absolutely detest Windows 8, 8.1 and 10, Microsoft in general and Dell computers.

    Against all odds, adventure games seem to be evolving. Over the past few years, there have been repeated attempts to move the classic adventure game formula into new directions. Majestic and Missing: Since January brought the online experience to the genre. Indigo Prophecy used the format of an interactive movie to generate the adventure game experience. Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon reimagined the traditional point-and-click adventure in a true 3D setting.

  • Puzzles in The Westerner are fair and logical. Only a couple of them found me wondering what the heck they were thinking. I wish I could tell you more, but I vowed to never spoil a game on a review. Now, the thing that really bothered me was when Fenimore dies at the end because you -- oops.
