You might have heard of Runaway by Pendulo, a generally well-received adventure game released a few years ago. It should be safe by now to say that its release meant a triumphal return to a very classic form of adventure gaming, the humorous third person point-and-click game, a style made popular for many years by LucasArts before they turned into the boring company they are today. Even with its eventual flaws, it has to be admitted that, underneath its gorgeous up-to-date graphics and novel character animation technology, Runaway was, at its heart, an old-school game. We've seen further examples of this kind of nostalgia streak since, most recently with The Westerner - which will soon be released in North America – that also managed to successfully marry this type of classic adventure with modern 3D technology. Curiously (or not) both Runaway and The Westerner come from Spain where this passion towards old-school gaming seems to be more pronounced than anywhere else.
