Game Review

Article from Issue 223/2019

In Unforeseen Incidents, a deadly virus and a spooky government quarantine are the prelude to an exciting point-and-click adventure for adults.

The phone rings as the protagonist, Harper Pendrell, reluctantly gets up from a mattress on his hobby room floor. It's Professor MacBride on the line (Figure 1), and once again, he is having problems with his laptop, which is urgently needed to evaluate research results. Harper grabs his universal multitool, which resembles a large Swiss army knife, and sets off for MacBride's lab – unaware that an adventure is about to begin.

Figure 1: In conversations such as this one with Professor MacBride, you not only learn interesting facts about the characters, but also get tips for solving the puzzles.

She has all the symptoms of a highly contagious and quickly fatal virus currently afflicting the residents of Harper's small town.
