    You're pretty much out of luck. No one is really making point and click adventure games anymore. You can get Sarien and SCUMMVM to replay the older Sierra (Kings/Space Quest) and Lucas Arts (Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion) games.

    There's also an application called Adeventure Game Studio which is sort of a Point and Click Adventure game creation kit... there's no editor for OS X but there is a (beta) reader program to play the games. Last I used it there was no sound, but otherwised worked pretty well. There's lots of games for that system of varyins quality, but there's one guy who has done some good games called 7 Days a Skeptic and 5 Days a Stranger.

    Sam and Max is mounting a comeback as well, so there's some hope there. Other than that (and the afore mentioned fan made games) the genre is not quite dead, but it's breathing is getting shallow.
