Adventure Time Goes 3D in New Game

Adventure Time goes 3D for the first time in a point-and-click mystery, adventure game!

Mathematical! Adventure Time is hopping into the third dimension in a brand new quest called Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations

The point-and-click 3D puzzle game has our favorite dog-human duo solving the mysteries plaguing the Land of Ooo. Unlike other games in the series, this new installment puts action in the backseat, opting to focus on exploration and puzzle-solving instead. And there's a reason for the change!

Joshua and Margaret — Jake’s mother and father, who also raised Finn — were seasoned detectives back in the days before becoming parents. They received their assignments from a machine called the “tickertype,” which printed out information on various cases. Now, Finn and Jake have unearthed the tickertype and decide to go into the investigation business themselves.

These investigations feed well into the game's unique episodic structure. Finn and Jake will venture to places like the Candy and Fire Kingdoms, Wizard City, and Castle Lemongrab, where they will be tasked with solving seemingly isolated mysteries (episodes) that connect at some point down the long, long road. 

This new direction is a result of games developer Little Orbit taking over the helm, whereas previous Adventure Time games were created by WayForward. We'll be seeing just how different Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations is from it's 2D counterparts when it is released this fall for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, 3DS, and Wii U. Oh my glob, that's a lot of platforms!
