Loads of games fall into that category, and while they are represented on this site, I still consider them third-party titles. It was one of the first hurdles I had to overcome... just had to grit my teeth and let 'em all in!

Relating back to my previous post on this thread:
Fryguy, I've been racking my brains but have come up a blank on Nintendo developed Point-and-click adventures Could you supply some sort of list (not in the database, obviously, just in a post) that I may enjoy them there-of?
I'm Oldmanrupee over on Deviantart.com, Oldmanrupee on the MS Paint Adventures website (check out my forum adventure there!) and @oldmanrupee AND @oldmanmystery over on Twitter.
@oldmanmystery likes to research mysterious and odd historical events, anything from the Roswell incident to King Tut's curse. He has a growing timeline of these events at www.tinyurl.com/hystory
Depends what you mean really... Nintendo have not made any point and click games, because they've never made PC games... where they seem to live (and have since seemed to die).
I suppose the menu-based adventures on the Famicom Disk System could be considered the same sort of thing, involving puzzle solving, menu clicking, etc... much more retro than, say, Monkey Island... and all in Japanese (I'm talking about Shin Oni Ga Shime, Yuu Yuu Ki, Famicom Tantei Club, Time Twist...)
Of course, Another Code (which will hopefully be translated) also falls quite close to the realm of point and click adventure... and is about as close as you're going to get with Nintendo. Hopefully we'll be seeing a few more now that the DS is around town (please Lucasarts, give us Sam & Max!)

Can you imagine? ;D
Lucasarts classics on the DS?
Why didn't I think of that before? That would be awesome! Sam 'n' Max, Maniac Mansion & Day of the Tentacle (Maniac Mansion 2), Monkey Island 1-3 (4 would be nice, but I don't know if it would run on the DS... maybe it would).
I would definitely buy such games for my DS - classic PC games of a genre that doesn't really happen much anymore.
On a side note, I was so looking forward to Sam 'n' Max 2 (all 3D and stuff), until it was cancelled...
Will Lucasarts do this? Only time will tell... *Twilight Zone music*
Oh, and I almost forgot... Zak McKracken - anybody play this? It is hilarious! Old but gold...
