Retro Dose #24 - Sanitarium

Todays Retro Dose leads us to the madness of an old point'n'click psychic horror, Sanitarium.Sanitarium, besides being brutally bizarre and somewhat morbid back in 1998, it was also an unusual combination of psychological horror in shoes of a point and click PC adventure. The game begins with a character you are playing - Max, who is on the verge of some revolutionary discovery, but because he was running home so he can tell it to his wife (and us players) he has a traffic accident that ends in a coma.

Retro Dose #23 - Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive

In today's Retro Dose, we take the law into our own hands so that Desperados reminds us of who in the Wild West was the chief sheriff in the city.We all  once played cowboys and indians when we were kids, but I already see somebody down in the comments immediately jump to tell me how he was not.

I present to you -  Clock Tower , for its time a unique point-and-click survival horror for SNES , and a couple of years later for PSX . Yes, point-and-click, you have read well.
