The Low Road
dventure games don’t get much more stylish than TheLowRoad, a ’70s-based point-andclick set in the world of corporate espionage. You play as Noomi Kovacs, a recent graduate from the brilliantly named LeCarre Institute for Exceptional Spies, who starts a new job at an intelligence agency, only to discover that spying mostly occurs in drab, brown offices, and from the comfort of a desk. (Surely the whole ‘LeCarre’ thing would have tipped you off?) In this demo for XGen Studios’ comedic adventure, you’ll have to connive yourself out of such a dull situation in order to achieve your dream of becoming a more daredevil secret agent. This involves quite a bit of chatting and puzzling, in case you hadn’t guessed.
