Faraway is a new game that looks quite a bit like other environmental puzzlers like Myst and The Witness, and it's out today. em>Faraway sees you exploring 18 puzzle-packed temples as you seek to fulfill your father's legacy as a renowned archaeologist.
The game's low-poly art is quite beautiful, adding an air of mystery to this ancient, crumblling ruins. Each temple holds its own secrets, including tests to ensure that you are worthy of the rare artifacts hidden within their chambers. Puzzles grow in complexity as you progress through the story, largely told through pages from your missing father's diary. There's a lot of interpreting of patterns, spinning dials, and undoing complex locks. You'll feel like a regular Lara Croft when you're through.
Faraway is free now on iOS and Google Play.
