Allgemein:
Quern - Undying Thoughts ist ein schönes, umfangreiches und teils auch sehr herausforderndes Rätsel-spiel mit wirklich interessanter Story.

Grafisch gesehen ist das Spiel ein Meisterwerk mit einer wunderschönen und äußerst passenden Grafik.

Die Umsetzung als Rätsel-, Puzzle-, Abenteuer- & Erkundungsspiel ist super gelungen.
Es macht enorm viel Spaß die Rätsel zu lösen und nach und nach immer mehr über die Geschichte dieses mysteriösen Ortes zu erfahren.

Von der Spiellänge würde ich sagen reicht es, wenn man 1 mal das Spiel durchläuft, höchtens nochmal für die Achievements, wenn man diese nicht direkt mitgenommen hat. (Ich habe selbst ca. 16 Std. in dem Spiel verbracht, bis ich 100% der Errungenschaften hatte).

Spielzeit bis 100% der Errungenschaften: ca. 10-35 Std. (Sehr stark abhängig von Spielgeschwindigkeit und Fokussierung auf Errungenschaften).

Maximale Spielzeit: 50 Std., das ist wirklich meiner Meinung nach das Maximum, denn irgendwann macht es keinen Spaß mehr die Selbe Story immer wieder zu spielen, was aber kaum als negativer Punkt zählt hier.

BEWERTUNG:

Grafik: 9/10:
+passende & tolle Grafik
+atemberaubend
+realistisch
-selten etwas unübersichtlich

Spielspaß 8,5/10:
+Macht sehr viel Spaß, tolles Spiel!
+Abwechslungsreich.
+super Story
+Tolles Spielerlebnis
-Teilweise frustrierend

Preis [Normal: 7/10 / Im Sale: 10/10]:
+Normalpreis: gut, wenn auch wenig Spielzeit im Verhältnis zum Preis.
+Sale-Preis: Absolut TOP, ganz klare Empfehlung.

GESAMTWERTUNG:

1. Zum Normalpreis: 8/10, klare Empfehlung.
2. Im Sale: 9/10, ganz klare Empfehlung.

[All das hier ist MEINE Meinung, falls ihr was anders seht, bin ich offen für sachliche, konstruktive Kritik oder Verbesserungsvorschläge.]

Junge was ist das ein laaanges Spiel. Okay, zehn Stunden ist kein Skyrim, aber trotzdem war es mir zu lang. Die Rätsel werden mit der Zeit immer komplexer oder einfach nur noch komplizierter. Irgendwann konnte ich die nächsten Schalter und Zahlen einfach nicht mehr sehen. Selbst beim Einsehen der Lösung hat sich mir manches Rätsel nicht erschlossen.

In den ersten zwei Drittel des Spiels befinden wir uns in einem richtig großen Gebiet und müssen ständig hin und herlaufen. Dann hat man hier etwas bekommen und muss jetzt überlegen wo auf dem ganzen Gelände das nun wieder eingefügt werden muss. Erschließt sich nicht immer von selbst.

Trotzdem möchte ich vorsichtig einen Daumen nach oben geben. Die Welt ist stimmig, die Optik nicht gewaltig, aber doch sehr gut. Und wer Bock hat sich so richtig in Rätsel einzugraben findet hier definitiv sein/ihr Spiel. Für alle Myst-Fans da draußen.

Nachdem ich von den Rätseln in Room 1-4 sehr begeistert war, musste passender Ersatz her. Grafik, Bewertungen und auch Preis waren gut, also habe ich zu Quern gegriffen. Leider hat es für mich nicht wirklich funktioniert. Die Puzzle sind meiner Meinung nach unlogisch aufgebaut und ich habe mich oft einfach tot gesucht auf dem Areal. Die Grafik ist zwar schön, aber es kommt einfach nicht die Stimmung auf wie in den Room spielen - schade!

It's like Myst.
You start an island, have various puzzles to solve to progress, and yeah, it's fun. Puzzles are challenging and diverse. Make you think in different ways but rarely obtuse. Only needed walkthrough for a single puzzle and even then I wished I had figured it out myself. Plot and characters are low key but move things along. Overall, fun and challenging series of puzzles in a nice environment that keeps your mind sharp.

I'm sorry but after hours of playing I come to a puzzle that requires repeating a sequence of sounds that requires trying to remember 14 notes in a row! Bad enough, but the sequence is random every time! The puzzles ore not intuitive. Nevertheless, after following instructions online just to get this far, I realize it is just not worth it. The game starts out logically but descends into the ridiculous without logical choices. Things like drinking a glass of a certain crushed red flower after going to another location just to read a code, without clues as to why one would do that, shows that without a walk-through explanation a normal person would never be able to complete the puzzles or the game on their own. The game had a good potential to be fun and entertaining, but becomes so frustrating it's not worth playing!!!

Great puzzle game. Some of the puzzles are quite tricky, but there is always some clues to point you to the rigth track. It might sometimes be difficult to se what can be used (look on all sides of a mechanism), and to remember that parts of a puzzle can be reused later. Sometimes you have to calculate, but the solution is always logical. Don't forget to use the notebook. It's also important to use it when the solution is only visible for a brief time.

Easily one of the best puzzle games ever made. I would put it up there with Riven and the King's Quest series.

10/10, great GREAT soundtrack too, very familiar and non-intrusive, but still manages to be catchy and endearing. Highly recommend playing this game without spoiling anything, the puzzles are not too difficult if you step away for a while and use the 'hint' function on each item in the inventory.

There has already been a lot of good said about this as you'll easily be able to tell from the 90%+ positive ratings. The game is very much like Myst with more difficult puzzles and fantastic visuals that were not possible when Myst was created.

+ Excellent Story
+ Two endings
+ Fantastic graphics
+ Good sound
+ Very good voice over/narration - esp for a small title
+ Music is very good, tho it can get a bit repetitive
+ All achievements work. One did trigger for me prematurely for some reason.

- The puzzles were extremely difficult. At least for me. I'd have got little enjoyment without guides. Props to the folks who have the logic ability to figure them out and then to share what they find. I really enjoyed this title because of them.

Very enjoyable so far. A lot like Myst and Riven, although the puzzles haven't really stumped us as much as the ones in Riven often did. The story unfolds very linearly which works pretty well to make sure you know which puzzle you're solving at any given time, which probably reduces the time spent doing aimless things (which was very common in Riven).

The game runs very poorly on the integrated graphics in my Mac mini, even in low settings at reduced resolution, but it hasn't affected any puzzles (yet).

This is very much your puzzle island sort of game, along the lines of Myst, Obduction, or The Witness. It holds up well against those games in terms of puzzle design for the most part, but there are items you can miss that you might need later. While this happened to me, I was able to go back and get that item and I don't think you could leave something behind in a game breaking way.

The puzzles were a little on the obscure side at times, but not unfair and were satisfying to solve. I needed to take notes and use Excel a few times to solve them more easily (think matrices). In terms of difficulty, I'd say it's harder than Obduction and less difficult than The Witness.

The only real downside in my opinion is the island was a bit drab, especially relative to Obduction and The Witness. The puzzles make it worth exploring, but it's not an environment I'd be inclined to explore purely for exploration's sake.

Overall I really enjoyed this game. I found it to be one of the harder adventure games I've played but it was very rewarding and felt like quite an accomplishment when I figured out the next step. I felt the visuals were beautiful and it had amazing attention to detail. I did become frustrated at some parts trying to figure something out or find the next piece of the puzzle but I stuck with it and eventually worked my way through it. I recommend this for a relaxed but challenging game.

It's like a 3D version of Myst or Riven. Very chill, you can take the puzzles at your own pace. The puzzles can be challenging, but enough hints are given that a walkthrough isn't required. When I got stuck, I just took a step back and explored the island again. There's always some minor detail that you overlook that becomes important later. This game requires a good amount of patience to enjoy.

An interesting story with a lot of clever puzzles. You start off in a somewhat open area that you keep opening up further with lots of things to interact with, while the final part of the game is a lot more linear. This felt like a nice change of pace to me and fit in with the story well. A comparison is often made with Obduction due to their similarities and I personally found Quern to be more logical than Obduction in terms of design. Because of this I usually knew what I was supposed to do or where I was supposed to go to get to the next puzzles which makes the game less frustrating when you do get stuck. If you're looking for a good puzzle game that can be challenging at times this is a great choice.

Brings back the feeling of playing Riven back in the days. I played for 30 hrs as I am the explorer kind and like enjoying the views and different perspectives. Also I did (try to) not resort to hints and walkthroughs - which is essential to get into the right mood - leaving the game for a week until the correct idea sparks.
All of the actual puzzles I was able to solve, however I missed (overlooked/forgot) e.g. a switch to turn on the mechanical room power. I feel now sorry for being impatient with myself and having looked it up.
Anyway, for me the best game (discovered and started it in 2020) of this year.
Thanks for porting it to linux!

What an incredible game. I'm a big fan of the Myst series games and was looking for something similar. This wholly met my expectations. The puzzles are challenging and fun, the graphics are stunning and the interface with the game is modern and accessible. I really came to love the novel features of the game like all the objects you carry and manipulate. The notebook you can take screenshots with is a fantastic idea and a must use to succeed in the game. The map and letter collection are a nice touch as well. Overall this is one of the best games I've played. I was completely engrossed and it made me feel like a kid again. That thrill of solving a puzzle and exploring new places! Something I haven't experienced from a game in a long time. 10/10 stars! A must buy for any puzzle/adventure game enthusiast.

[h1] Harness the power of crystals... and patience [/h1]

Quern: Undying Thoughts is in many ways a spiritual successor to games like Myst and Riven, and unapologetically leans into the mystery-puzzle genre. Like Myst and Riven, the story in Quern takes a secondary roll that supplements the complex, interactive world that is packed full of content for the player to explore and uncover.

I suppose the most important, or rather, most engaging mechanic from these kinds of games are the puzzles. The puzzles imo are very satisfying, and at many times require multiple angles of analysis. There will be times where you will have to meditate on a puzzle for several minutes or even hours. Games like these tend to excel in this department because the puzzles always feel tactile and hyper-interactive (pulling levers, pushing buttons, moving objects, manipulating the enviornment, etc.). Of course there are some duds, but overall I thought the majority of the puzzles were very engaging -- I especially thought the [spoiler]volume soundwave crystal matching[/spoiler] puzzle was very creative.

Pros
- Hyper-interactive and engaging puzzles
- Interesting and dynamic world to explore
- High-fidelity modern graphics
- Immersive sound design
- Ambient music
- Interesting story

Cons
- A few puzzles are repetitive and unintuitive


[h1] FINAL SCORE: 9/10 [/h1]

Very Myst/Riven like, but camera movement sometimes causes motion sickness for me, even with motion blur and head bob off. Some puzzles are more vague than Riven puzzles and there is way too much back and forth trekking to solve some puzzles for my taste, making some of the puzzles frustrating, but a good number of the puzzles are fun. The Quern world is fairly desaturated and not nearly as much fun visually as the Myst series, but all-in-all a good game and fair substitute.

Not an easy game. Myst-like, it has solid puzzles that will make you scratch your head for some time. The length of the game is generous but not too long. It also has a great mysterious vibe to it. And you have to pay real close attention while exploring to the things you see and can interact with.

That's also my one and only complaint about this game: You do need to be clever and to start thinking a certain way, and it IS easy to miss something that is essential to progression in the game. Which can and will no doubt lead to a couple of hourly long periods spent retreading steps to see whether you have somehow missed something somewhere. And for me those parts, especially when it becomes an hourly long thing, can make me feel extremely frustrated.

Everything else about this game though is excellent and I hope that they will make more of this type of game because creating good puzzles is not easy and I feel like these puzzles were striking the right chord.

Wow, this game has some intuitive puzzles, a fantastic Riven-like art design, and overall it runs nicely with great visuals and effects. There are quite a few graphical options, FOV, decent controller support, and to boot I can't think of too many negatives. Versus something like Obduction, with its fairly annoying engine problems, I think Quern is the best of the genre in recent times and sets itself apart rather nicely.

Obviously, everyone is different when it comes to puzzles. So far nothing has been out of the ordinary. I will usually use a guide if I really need to, but things have been fairly logical so far. I saw one review compare it to both Talos and Witness, and while yes you solve puzzles in each of these games, they couldn't be any more different really. Talos is more like a Portal game in a different universe. Witness is its own invocation of self-contained grid puzzles that hint at a greater but more obscure epiphany of human intellect. It doesn't quite get there in the narrative though. Quern is like an old school Riven sequel, and I love it for that even when it's not quite as innovative as the other two. There really isn't much like this game out there, and I would choose any of these games in the puzzle genre depending on what you want to do.

I appreciate the game for taking some risks but also sticking to the aesthetic and charm of old school foundations. It renews that sense of wonder we got as children in the time of Myst and its sequels and successors. Definitely a dev to look out for in the future.

Quern had been on my wishlist for awhile and I finally picked it up. Overall I had a nice time with it, and the story really picks up towards the end.

The puzzles:
- imo most challenging in the early-mid game, much quicker (and easier) by the end
- some puzzles take time AND are rewarding, others just take time and you may find yourself wondering why you're running back and forth so much, don't worry you're supposed to
- the crystals are the driving mechanic, but the types of puzzles you are solving should feel relatively familiar
- linear, typically need to solve one puzzle at a time to unlock the next one
- accessibility: must be able to see colors and hear
- notepad mechanic is super helpful - allows in-game screenshots of maps/notes so you don't have to write everything down

The story (avoiding any spoilers):
- story is mostly told through letters from a previous inhabitant
- linear, becomes more compelling as you get deeper since you know so little at the beginning
- becomes the focus of the game in later stages
- shouldn't be more than 20 hours, likely much closer to 10 depending on how quickly you figure out what you need to be doing
- probably not worth a 2nd play-through unless you want the achievements

The world:
- map is appropriately sized with enough variety for new areas to feel truly novel, plus some surprises
- Myst-like. Like, a lot.
- tranquil music that changes based on location. Really grew on me towards the end but that may just be because I was sick of what the same tune so often in the early game

Worth noting - NO micro-transactions or other in-game purchases. You get the full game when you buy it (as you should).

In conclusion, I'm glad I bought it! I would recommend to any fan of puzzle games, particularly those who enjoy psychological/existential narratives.

If you enjoy games like MYST, Obduction or The Room, you will probably like Quern.

Story is OK, nothing crazy.

Most of the puzzles can be solved following logic, it's pretty rewarding that way. That said, there are a couple weak parts in which you can only find solutions by guessing or looking for stuff you missed, this without any indication or hint on what to do next. Once you manage to get past this part, following logic will again be your priority.

one of the best first person puzzle adventures I've played the game makes so much sense and the riddles are unique. the whole mystery of the island is very intriguing i wish there were more games like this out there. i am a big fan of everything cyan has released, and this game just steps on those footsteps.

The closest thing I have come to Myst in a long, long time. All puzzles have logic to them, no need to guess like crazy; you can actually figure out how to solve them :)

BEAUTIFUL open world puzzle adventure. Highly reminiscent of the Myst series. This particularly seems to have drawn a lot of inspiration from Myst III: Exile and Myst IV: Revelation. The puzzles themselves are a little hit and miss for me. I tend to prefer puzzles that are difficult in concept, cleverly thought through, and not just busy work. There's a bit too much busy work for my taste in this (follow this map of a dozen steps--easy to figure out, a lot of steps to follow). 10/10 for the aesthetic and immersion. Visuals, soundtrack, it's all stunning. I LOVE being in this world. 6/10 for the actual puzzles. Definitely worth a play through.

The single best 'Myst-like' there is - beating even Myst's studio's own latest game. If you are looking for what the best the point-and-click genre has to offer, then look no further. Quern is a monument to the point-and-click's lasting cult appeal.

The only criticism I can offer is that this game does feature some pick-up-and-use items, which inevitably leads to a few convoluted solutions. Luckily they aren't too prevalent and none of them are particularly egregious, and it manages to avoid pixel hunting that plagues a lot of point-and-clicks.

Highly, highly recommended for puzzle lovers.

Quern - Undying Thoughts
I'm not one to review allot of games but I felt like it deserved it.
This is not a game you spend an afternoon completing or some normal puzzle game. Although, there are clues to everything you will need to get through to the next stages. It will require a very keen eye to not use a guide or google a certain puzzle. I do not have such an eye, but nonetheless I tried my own on every single puzzle. The voice acting, the notes, the puzzles I thought were all fantastic. The graphics are stunning however the scene becomes somewhat grey at times, but I may just be too well indulged in the tasks. I often had to sleep on certain puzzles and it takes quite the mental gymnastics at times. This game is like none other I have played and was definitely worth the time and six dollars I spent on it. Is it worth $24.99, not really. Wait for a sale or keep it on the wish-list. I see allot of comments about the controls and although it is troubling in the start it makes sense on allot of the puzzles you will be doing later on. As for the randomness, it is not a straight forward game, like stated it will take mental gymnastics and probably multiple days to finish. You know its troubling when you are 6 hours in and thinking you are about to finish but then look up a guide 2 hours long and are only half way through it. Hard but interesting.
4.5/5

The most convoluted riddles. TL;DR Plot could be better. Don't buy this game.

Sometimes when I saw the puzzle I knew that it would be easier and more interesting to brute force it instead of actually solving it. Also, the ending of the game is just silly. It is pretentious, as if you would ruin civilization, but it doesn't feel like it. I was not involved at all. After somewhere half of the game it stops feeling immersive and you staring to notice that some puzzles even designed in such a way that would require a lot of back and forth running for no reason. Tasks start being more and more annoying not because they are hard to solve but because you already know how to find solution and you also know that the process of finding will be tedious. Oh, and yes, puzzles became even more stupid when you realize that the game is trying to tell you a story about some sort of a genius, who build all the machines on the island and then asks you to find a solution for a match 4 game or to align the doors in a row so you can go through them. facepalm.jpg

Brilliant!! A fascinating plot that begs you to keep solving one devious puzzle after another in hopes of unlocking the secrets of Quern. The thrill that comes from successfully completing each task is like a cocktail of dopamine and adrenaline to the cortex. The variety of puzzles forces you to think in new and creative ways, sometimes building on previous patterns and other times forcing you to think entirely outside the box. This labor of love is worth every penny and more. Even after finishing the game, I still don't understand how I arrived in Quern in the first place, but I'm glad I did!

As far as puzzle games go, probably one of my favorites. Good story tie ins, clever puzzles that I was always able to figure out, some easy, and some hard. My friend and I played at the same time, and they found different puzzles difficult and easy than I did, so I think good for many different types of people. Modern day Mist.

The game is obnoxiously tedious. The puzzles are fine, but find all the little pieces and figuring out where to install them to activate stuff is often (usually) unclear (sometimes there are clues, often there are not). Aesthetically, the game is quite beautiful, and I'm enjoying the artwork and style. If you have patience and enjoy puzzle games like The Room, you'll probably like this game.

It's imperfect, but it's enjoyable. If you're a Myst fan and looking for a Myst-like, considering picking this one up. It very much gave me vibes of Myst IV's Spire Age for some reason.

Last played it in 2019, and may end up replaying it at some point in the near future.

Would like to see what this team comes up within this genre.

Quern is a fun intermediate difficulty puzzle game that has map progression using key items that sometimes need to be transformed or combined. The graphics are clean but detailed and the calm music with ambient noises make for a pretty relaxing experience. The puzzles are generally simple and straightforward but satisfying to solve, I did get lost a few times given that a location might need to be used multiple times but other than that everything went smoothly. There is a story and it's good I think, the voice acting is well done and I enjoyed the little moral choice it asks the player to make. It offers a great length at around 14 hours and had no technical issues or bugs during my time playing. It's not the more commonly known type of puzzle game these days like Portal but for someone that enjoy a relaxing adventure game it's well worth the time.

This is a lot like the MYST games, and many elements feel lifted almost directly from that series. Beautiful graphics, even when turned down to run more smoothly on my limited machine. Controls are quite awkward in a few places, especially spiral staircases, of which there are a lot.

[MINOR SPOILER] The designers set themselves up for an ending on which they could not deliver - the player never sees the consequences of their actions, and this is a little disappointing.

Overall, a fun and immersive experience.

FINALLY, a puzzle game where the puzzles are actually logical, not random. Only a couple times did I feel the solution was unreasonably obscure, but usually that was because I got impatient. The story is a bit of a throwaway. But I'll gladly take analytical puzzles with a mediocre story over arbitrary puzzles with an ok story (I'm looking at you, Obduction).

I would recommend this game for general puzzle lovers who are okay with a not-Myst-like ending sequence! People who love Myst will NOT like this game, because of the extensive overbearing hand-holding. Too many arrows LOL. They make it physically impossible to miss your options, every time. Every. Time.

Tbh, they should've just gotten a beta group or called Annapurna to get storytelling help. Not much of the story was relatable, and I didn't care about the characters. The ending didn't help that situation. Still a good puzzle game though!

Riven (the sequel to Myst) had a deep impact on me when I was a child. The atmospheric tone, the environmental storytelling, the elaborate puzzles calling on multiple clues scattered throughout the islands, all of this made Riven an experience that has not been replicated since. Quern is a fantastic puzzle game that is more akin to the greatness of Riven than Cyan's subsequent games (Obduction included). The story is interesting, the environments rich, and the majority of the puzzles are interesting. I wish I could have a fresh experience playing this game for the first time again. One minor issue I had was that some of the songs in some of the locations can be a bit grating being on repeat for so long. Also, a couple of the puzzles rely on looking in locations of the environment that are not intuitive. Besides these minor complaints, I fully recommend Quern. I hope Zadbox entertainment continues to work on games in a similar vein.

A solid puzzle experience with lots of content. I do have some minor criticisms, but over all, I got a lot of value out of this game, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys puzzles.
Pros - the game has a good, strong length, most of its puzzles are well designed and fairly balanced, and the overall progression through the game is mostly smooth. Particularly of note is how the game balances introducing new mechanics against reusing old ones. While mostly adhering to the old Myst formula of every puzzle being unique, there are a few puzzle components and mechanics that keep coming back in different ways, rewarding the player for learning and remembering but still staying fresh over what was for me about 14 hours of content. That's worth commending.
Cons - In terms of design, there were a few things that frustrated me. The game has a notebook function that ends up being clunky and inconvenient - you're better off just keeping an actual physical notebook in almost all cases. Also, the game is very linear - at any given moment in the game, there is almost always only one puzzle that needs to be solved. This leads to three downsides - one, if you miss an interactive object like a lever or button, the game grinds to a halt and you just have nothing to do until you revisit every location and find it; two, if you are stuck on a puzzle, you can't go to another area and work on something else while mulling it over, you're just stuck with nowhere to go and nothing to do; three, these two experiences are sometimes difficult to tell from one another. If you do get stuck, is it because there's a puzzle you haven't solved, or is it because you missed an interaction that should have been obvious? All of this detracts from exploration - because the game is so linear, even as new areas open up, you're always laser focused on the one thing that will progress the game forward. You're never just wandering about for the sake of it. The world feels much more constructed and artificial. This feeds into my second criticism - the story is mediocre, and plays second fiddle to mechanics. The whole game is one big, elaborate escape-the-room, and every attempt it makes to convince you that there's more at stake here falls flat when you are never encouraged to look at this world as anything but a collection of puzzles to be solved. The world building is shallow and ultimately only serves to excuse all of the gamified aspects of the environment.
Ultimately, these complaints are minor. This is a puzzle game, and as a puzzle game, it is successful. Its puzzles are fun, strike a good balance in terms of both challenge and novelty, and there are a lot of them, spread out over an engaging difficulty curve. It is a good game. But, with a few tweaks to design and story, it could have been great.

I've completed my first run of the game and I have to say this is probably my favorite game at this point. I absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. The puzzles were complex, but there was enough hints and through threads that you can easily piece together everything. I also thoroughly enjoy the music and the quality of the world. My plans are to do another quick run of the game to get all of the achievements, then try and play the game without taking any notes. For anyone just starting, having a piece of paper to write the puzzles on is invaluable. The game gives you a notebook, but I personally prefer writing things on paper. I filled one page front and back, and had started on my second piece of paper by the time I completed the game. I have got to give the devs props for how good this game is!

Those of us who enjoyed the Myst series are always on the lookout for similar experiences. This is one of them. The puzzles are interesting, the atmosphere is calming, and the lore is intriguing. It's exactly the kind of experience I want when I need to be diverted without being exhausted.

Edit: Just want to add that the note taking system is the best I've ever used. You can store pictures of anything in the notebook and add your own notes. It makes solving the puzzles much easier with less legwork.

This is nearly a great game, but then a few hours in the puzzles turn into wandering around places you've already been to stumble upon a random thing that opened up. Then the puzzles just start being the earlier puzzles, but with extra steps (Simon, but up to 14 memorizations; database cross-referencing, but with extra databases). You also have to start walking a lot for each puzzle attempt, for many puzzles. There's a wonderful core to this game (great environment, great non-repeated puzzles, fine story), but it despises your time and hopes you'll confuse time spent on a puzzle for challenge.

This is a point and click adventure that relies on rote memorization and obscure item combinations that should have been left behind in the 90s. If you struggle with short term memory issues or audio elements you will find some sequences near impossible to solve. I don't consider them puzzles as no brainwork is required to solve them simply read the solution in one part of the map and apply it to another part.

Visuals are nice but performance is lacking for what you get, reflections and shadows cost far too much in fps for what you get.

There are better adventure games out there and far better puzzle games.
