Indie developer Ben Chandler (Annie Android, Awakener) has just released the first episode for another point-and-click title he's built with Adventure Game Studio, ~airwave~ - I Fought the Law, and the Law One, which you can download for free on your Windows PC.

I love the look of it, the character sprites on deeply hued painted backgrounds, and the game also has a neat gimmick: a "fully home-grown radio show" soundtrack that you can listen to. That feature fits with ~airwave~'s plot:

"Elodie Major has been running a little indie radio station called Airwave Radio with her friend Zak for 5 years now, and they've manage to win a strong following amongst the people of the small town of Wave.

Recently, however, they've found themselves under pressure from mainstream record labels to play their music, and have resisted quite forcefully, but they haven't seen an end to this attempted interference just yet..."

You can grab the first episode of ~airwave~ here. Chandler says the title has "quite a bit of plot to cover", and that he will try "releasing the game in short chapters, to let people play the game while [he] work on bigger projects and real life things."
