Considering Telltale shut down not too long ago (and even then they had long since abandoned traditional point and click gameplay from what I've heard), do you think adventure games in that style will ever come back? Is there still an audience for them? I really hope the genre doesn't completely go away, since it's one of my favorite genres and stuff like Pajama Sam is what got me into video games in the first place.

I grew up with "Freddi Fish" (1994), "Putt-Putt Travels Through Time" (1997), Garfield's Scary Scavenger Hunt and the sequel. I also know several people who grew up with Spy Fox.

I think these type of games are mostly considered to be for younger children. I don't think point and click games for adults will make a comeback anytime soon. Sorry.

When adults play a game, they often want to skip the intros and coversations. They just want to play. These type of games are for those people who actually like the conversations.

https://youtu.be/OGaZr1-0O7o Hey if Wolverine can be rated-R, and if Harley Quinn can get an R-rated animated series, plus if John Bloddy Constantine can be in Justice League Action, I can't see why Deadpool can't be PG-13.
