It’s been years since Myst burst onto the puzzle scene, providing gamers back in the early 1990’s the opportunity to embark on a strange first person adventure. It was however a game that spawned many, and hot on the heels of the launch of Obduction on Xbox One, we find another mysterious tale come the fore, that of Quern – Undying Thoughts.
Coming from the team at Zadbox Entertainment, Quern – Undying Thoughts is the latest first person puzzler to arrive on Xbox One, providing gamers with a whole new captivating adventure.
Priced at £16.74, Quern utilises the tried and tested method of first person puzzling, slowly unfurling a tale and numerous puzzle mechanics as it goes. With an atmospheric soundtrack pushing things along, and a freely explorable world to check out, it very much delivers in the same way as Myst did back in the day.
Following hints, working with an in-game notepad (and no doubt a real world one too), Quern asks you to wander round its world as you put your mind to the utter test, attempting to find your way out of the trappings you are in, and away to safety.
If you’re sold on a purchase of Quern – Undying Thoughts on Xbox One then the Xbox Store will, as always, provide you with the required download. Should you need more though, our full review is incoming. Keep an eye out for it in the days ahead.
