If point-and-click adventures are your thing, or even if you're not sure but think that maybe they might be when you're in the proper mood, then you should probably pop over to Steam and pick up Kathy Rain, from the makers of the recent Whispers of a Machine, for free. 

Kathy Rain tells the story of a hard-living journalist in the 1990s whose investigation into the mysterious circumstances surrounding her grandfather's death forces her to come to terms with her own troubled past. From the Steam listing:

"As she follows a trail of clues he left behind, questions emerge... What was Joseph Rain really looking for that night all those years ago? What turned him into a mere shell of a man, confined to a wheelchair? What secret did a suicidal young artist take with her to the grave, and why are so many people in Conwell Springs going mad? The truth is dark and sinister..." 

It's well-regarded on both Metacritic and in Steam user reviews, and coming from the makers of Whispers of a Machine is a credit too: Whispers wasn't quite the 'big ideas' game it set out to be, but it works very well as an entertaining point-and-click detective story with a sci-fi twist. And hey, it's hard to go wrong at the price. 

Kathy Rain is free, for keeps, until 10 am PT/1 pm ET on May 7.

Take a ride to the cloudy, remote town of Nordsund, bring your best trench coat, and enter a near-future where artificial intelligence has been banned and made taboo by society. Or so we thought…


Whispers of a Machine is the sophomore release from Clifftop Games and Faravid Interactive, and it’s available now on PC and mobile. It tells the gripping tale of Vera, a special agent investigating a murder with the use of cybernetic augmentations. But as one thread pulls and the tale unravels, she finds that the truth may be more complicated (and more dangerous for humanity) than it seems.

Want a quick primer of what to expect? Check out the video below!


We’re distinctly honored and proud to release Whispers of a Machine into the wild as the second game from Clifftop Games to grace our portfolio. Kathy Rain was a powerful example of how the point-and-click adventure genre can enable excellent storytelling and puzzle-solving in a graceful and mature manner; and Whispers is no exception. It has been a thrill getting to this point, and we can’t wait to hear what you all think!
