The 11 Best Indie Games of 2016

11. Obduction

This game is about a person being transported to an alien world and that person having to explore and solve puzzles to return home. It’s a great first-person adventure game set in a beautiful and lush world, which is so amazing you sometimes find yourself just standing around admiring it. We loved it so much we gave it a solid 8/10! 

Obduction resurrects that feeling of classic adventure games like Myst, whose creator, Rand Miller, also created this amazing experience. An immersive world, the environment of Obduction requires considerable exploration and discovery of its enigmatic character. Through this exploration, the world’s secrets are unveiled. Solving puzzles requires searching and keen observation is vital to ensure clues are not missed -- they can often be the most unassuming things!

Half the fun of this game is the feeling of a race against time to find that final clue; but once it’s found, the reward is very much worth it. The in-game choices do have substantial consequences for the rest of the game, too, giving it another layer of intriguing difficulty.

Obduction is available for PC and Steam and was released in August 2016.
