Other adventure games like Obduction, The Witness?
This is my favourite genre of games, and I noticed people occasionally mention similar games on the forum. With a long weekend coming up I thought I’d try and see if there were any more like them that I’d missed. Basically first-person puzzle games.
These are the ones I’ve played (and loved!):
Eyes of Ara
The Room (series)
The House of DaVinci (series)
Just to stir the pot a bit, for me these types of games are what I see as the natural progression from the heyday of the Sierra games - or at least it was the puzzle aspect of those games that I really enjoyed.
Quern is definitely in the same vein as Obduction and Eyes of Ara. I enjoyed it a lot.
The Cabinets of Dr. Arcana
April, come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain.
Try AG’s discovery page, selecting First-Person under “Perspective” and Puzzle under “Gameplay.”
I don’t think a long weekend will be enough for all of them, though.

Thanks for all the suggestions - I ended up playing Haven Moon which hit the spot nicely!
