Article expansion[edit]

I've just uploaded a fairly large expansion of this article, the objective of which is to turn this into a proper portal to all the adventure game articles. This has been sitting in my sandbox for quite a while, I figured it would be more productive at this point to stick it out here and work on it in mainspace over time. I've included basic summaries of each game; whilst unreferenced at present, they are adapted from their respective articles' contents and I'll be referencing them in due course. There's also more details on the cancelled games and the descendent companies. There's still a few sections I'd like to construct; firstly, an opening overview section before the actual games dealing with the common themes of writing, design and audio production - basically defining what these games are - and secondly, a critical appraisal of these games as a whole, to be put in a "cultural impact" section along with the descendent companies. I'm still looking for sources for these, which is why these sections aren't included at present. -- Sabre (talk) 13:51, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
