We also just brought one of our classic games to the Steam platform: Defend Your Castle. You might have gotten in trouble for playing the web version of this game in your computer lab or library at school when you probably were supposed to be studying or researching something important. Sorry teachers! If you're looking for a healthy dose of nostalgia hop on over to the DYC store page here:

Most of all, thank you for playing our games!

The Low Road is now out on Linux!



We’re so thrilled to announce that in addition to Windows and MacOS, The Low Road is available on Linux through Steam! Adventure Gamers stated The Low Road “just begs to be played and enjoyed” and XGen Studios wanted to give Linux users the opportunity to enjoy the game as well. This is our very first downloadable title to support Linux so we’re very excited to reach a brand new audience that may have played our flash games in the early days of XGen.

Since the release of The Low Road on Steam in late July, our point and click adventure has caught the attention of an international audience winning awards for “Best Character Design” at the Game Design Awards in Dundee UK, and “Best Gaming Experience” at the Ember Awards in Alberta Canada.

Thanks!

About This Game

Theme & Narrative:

1976.
Noomi Kovacs—an overeager graduate of the LeCarre Institute for Exceptional Spies (L.I.E.S)—has just landed her first job at Penderbrook Motors’ Division of Outside Intelligence. Confined to an office and underestimated by her gruff supervisor—a disgraced former government agent named Turn—Noomi will have to exploit her colleagues and surroundings to help further her dream of becoming a globetrotting secret agent. Once in the field, Noomi and Turn begin to realize that their company’s dogged pursuit of their rivals extend to something far more sinister than “healthy competition” and the two will be forced to reconsider the paths they’ve chosen. Lying, blackmail, and emotional manipulation will become Noomi and Turn’s greatest assets as they make their way through…The Low Road.

Description:

Set in the world of the 1970s automobile industry, The Low Road is a point-and-click graphic adventure game which follows a team of corporate spies dedicated to the protection (and appropriation) of game-changing industry secrets. Sporting a unique visual style inspired by gouache paintings and a pulsating rock and roll score, "The Low Road" will captivate players through intricate puzzles, branching moral dilemmas, and a quirky cast of memorable characters.
