Lost Horizon, the PC point and click adventure game from the makers of Secret Files, has some new screens for it posted over on IGN.
Set during the 1930′s, the game contains locales such as Hong Kong, Morocco, and Tibet, as the player takes on the role of smuggler and former British soldier Fenton Paddock.
Tasked with finding a lost expedition in Tibet, he must beat the Nazis to the ever mythical Shambala if he is to prevent them from using the magical kingdom as a weapon for further conquest.
Shambala should sound familiar to some gamers at this point, but we won’t say why just in case.
Lost Horizon is set for release next year on the PC.

There’s loads of ancient gods, deformed children, and ghosts from your past in a house inside of a water reflection. Yep. Creepy and strange alright.
The game has five different worlds chock full of riddles and answers, where you must decide what is real and what isn’t.

Big Fish Games has released a point-and-click PC puzzle game called Drawn: The Painted Tower.
Available for digital download through the publisher’s official site for $6.99, it is rather lovely looking if we’re being honest.

Enter lush painted worlds and meet fantastic characters who will help you…and sometimes try to stop you, on your quest through the dream world of The Painted Tower.

American McGee’s Grimm Volume 3 is starting to wind down, what with only two episodes left after this week’s offering of Sleeping Beauty.
In Grimm’s sordid version of the fairy tale, a socially awkward witch puts a kingdom to sleep for 100 years. This promises to be the longest episode yet.
Also, Just Cause has been added to the free-to-play list, but only until March 26.
That should get you pumped until Just Cause 2 comes out sometime this year.
GameTap’s offerings can be found here, and if you are chintzy and don’t wanna spend the cash on a subscription, just play the free ones.

GameTap uncorked the final volume of American McGee’s Grimm yesterday with Episode 17: The Frog King, as well as adding Take-Two’s bullet-ridden Serious Sam II.
This Grimm episode sees a naïve young princess discover just how messy love can get when she hooks up with an unusually charming – albeit slimy – frog. All new episodes of Grimm are free for the first 24 hours.
Serious Sam II is also free for its first week on the service, but there are close to 142 free games over there to play should you sign up, so you’re pretty much spoiled for choice on the “free” front.
More Grimm is expected next week, and gold members will soon get Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Dark Crusade, and Titan Quest with the Immortal Throne expansion pack.
