Observer: System Redux Review – Dystopian Murder Mystery

Observer: System Redux is a decent game. The combined Bladerunner and Lovecraftian elements will have any fan of the giddy thanks to its incredible implementation. While a few elements personally irked, the overall experience is wonderful. Dialogue and world-building expertly craft a narrative experience that is perfect for murder mystery games like this. The game has heavy Myst and/or Egypt vibes in its execution and should be perfect for anyone who is a fan of classic point and click adventures. The attention to detail in this game is particularly incredible. While it is no masterpiece, the fact that it is one of Rutger Hauer’s final works only adds to his legacy. It is most certainly worth a play.
