Epic Game Review: Obduction

The Epic Series: this series covers the free games released on the Epic Games Store

Cost: £0.00 (when free), £23.99 RRP

Platform: PC / Mac , Playstation

Reviews: 2,381 reviews with overall ‘Mostly Positive’ rating

Time to complete: 12 hours

Similar Games: Myst, Riven, Firewatch, Oxenfree

Obduction is the spiritual successor to the game Myst, which was the bestselling PC game from 1993 till the mid-2000s. However, today’s demographic might find it falls short in a number of areas, riding the tailcoats of a genre that has been well executed over the years – a genre which may have been left behind in favour of simpler games.

As always – game trailer at the bottom of the post.
