The Myst. A game that many have been talking about for the last three decades. I've never played it, but they say it was one of the best games in the '90s. So I gave Obduction a try, as it's from the same developer's team. I was so excited to play it, but after finishing it, I'm sadly feeling disappointed. It's a great game, don't take me wrong.

Positive points

Basically no hints

Ear-grating sound effects

Storyline

"As you walk beside the lake on a cloudy night, a distant thunderclap demands your attention. A curious, organic artifact falls from the starry sky and inexplicably, without asking permission, transports you across the universe. You’ve been abducted from your cozy existence and added into an alien landscape with a stereotypical Kansas farmhouse, a white picket fence, and a rather bizarre little ghost town - well… almost ghost town. Adding to the oddity, you discover a strangely kluged kiosk that reassuringly welcomes you to Hunrath."
