The Ward (c) Gathering of Developers / Fragile Bits

I could play The Ward for some time and was lucky enough to grab these screenshoots, though I must admit I was not able to get so far inside the game, puzzles are really taxing and altough you can save anywhere and restart from last room if i.e. killed by lasers it will be pretty hard to find your way trough the game. The Ward is yet another 2d Adventure in the style that Lucas Arts made world famous, there's a popup inventory, a lot of objects and puzzles everywhere.
Plot revolves around alien trying to squash earth like a spider and yourself, being a component of Apollo 12465 (...) will have to get on the rescue (at least of your ass, who cares about earth, it's polluted). The Ward is a pleasure to play, though an hint book or even a walk trough could come handy (and of course there's not such a thing around yet). Don't even consider playing the game in EASY mode, it will just ruing everything allowing you to skip all the puzzles (bleah!). Another 'classic' looking 2D predrawn adventure with pretty linear plot, honestly this came as a third for me lately, with games like Monkey Island 4 and In Cold Blood being already avaiable.
