Title: The Artifact
Developer: Enigma Games
What type of game is it?
What’s the 30 second elevator pitch?
You awake alone on your ship, a strange monolith the only clue as to what happened. Your mission is to escape through solving puzzles around the echoing chambers of your space vessel.
What do we like most about it?
The “Escape the room” (as they themselves call it) class of puzzle games have always been pleasing, especially those that move away from simple hidden items and vague visual clues. The fact that the game world is so brilliantly rendered and the puzzles are more object based bodes extremely well -take a look at some of the sketches uploaded onto the Greenlight page if you don’t agree from the video.
There is, unfortunately, little more to talk about at the moment due to the fact that most of the game is under wraps. This does make sense in a way, because most of the game revolves around puzzles and their solutions, stripping those out would simply leave a trailer which showed the innards of the ship and transititions… which is exactly what we’ve got.
When’s it due?
The Artifact is apparently extremely close to release, when it does it will launch for Windows PC.
