For Each Our Roads of Winter, Myst-like Exploration Game Announced
Myst was one of the great games of the 1990s. The graphics were phenomenal for the time, and the lack of combat (or really, any other living creatures) was pretty unique. Using the first-person perspective, the player explored the world, solving puzzles as you went as you tried to figure out the mystery of this strange world.
The recipe has been copied before, but For Each Our Roads of Winter, unveiled yesterday, looks like it could easily be one of Myst’s sequels. Like the Myst games, FEOROW features a vast, mysterious world you explore in the first-person, and will support Oculus Rift. The game is episodic, and features photorealistic imagery that looks eerily like a black and white Riven.
For a gallery of screens, check out the developer’s photo album here. I did double-check with the developers: the screenshots are true to game and show the dramatically desaturated color scheme of the game. It is not black and white.
In case you’re interested in what the game’s music will sound like, you can check out the dev’s soundcloud here. So far, I’m digging the sound and looking forward to the full release.
No release date yet, but it will be available for PC and Linux soon. We’ll keep you up to date.
