My first video game was a 50 cent copy of “Ages of Myst” that I bought at a yard sale sometime before 2008. Now I love video games, including adventure and turn-based strategy.

The puzzles are much more logical in the new, improved version, but the still-vague story and now-dangerous supernatural encounters may yet drive you insane.

It's hard to know what's scarier in this short but beautiful indie horror: its startling frights or illogical puzzles and confusing plot.
There's nothing artificial about this genuinely intelligent sci-fi adventure, which cleverly blends a host of varied gameplay elements into one unique whole.
