Among the Innocent: A Stricken Tale

In this epic series, players will be challenged in a rich narrative experience that spans multiple decades and storylines. The Stricken series blends elements of classic point-and-click adventures with modern first-person games, and delivers a mature story for players who long for intrigue.
