Return of the Obra Dinn Review
Return of the Obra Dinn has emerged after four years in development, and it was truly worth the wait. The creator of Papers Please offers us a modern classic again. This game will test your detective skills to the utmost. The art of deduction! Its style is something else and the story is very interesting, but the game will not make things easy for you. Delivers a wonderfully evocative method of storytelling as you gain glimpses into the lives of each person on board at vital moments along the Obra Dinn's journey and piece together who they were, what they had to deal, what motivated them, and how they responded when tragedy struck. Meticulously constructed, from the stippled black-and-white graphics to the intricate, devious logic puzzle at its core, Obra Dinn is a unique and fascinating tragedy. Unapologetically old-school, the captivating tragedies of the Obra Dinn are in a class of their own. Visually striking and extraordinarily immersive, a must-play for any mystery fan worth their salt.
