Most not too long ago, I performed the sport on the Game Developers Conference final month, and was stunned at how a lot it’s modified since my final demo. Originally, the sport felt extra like a straight-up narrative journey, primarily involved with wandering round, taking a look at stuff and fixing easy puzzles. But it’s gotten much more formidable.
Exploration continues to be a giant a part of the sport. It follows the story of a woman in quest of her misplaced sister. This takes her from wooden to meadow to creepy homes, permitting for some lavish environmental artwork. But now, the puzzles are extra quite a few, and tougher.
The trailer presents a way of the puzzle model, with a number of logic issues in addition to pattern-finding. When I performed, I spent a while within the loft of a home, fidgeting with devices, looking for lacking issues, and making an attempt to tug the entire thing collectively.
There’s positively a whiff of Myst about this recreation, during which gamers are anticipated to suppose barely exterior the norms of primary puzzledom. I feel it will enchantment to gamers who like to discover and to be examined by visible issues.
