In Scavenger Hunter (2006) the Scavengers are an alien race who have built 9 worlds, & stolen objects from earth to place in them. Your goal, working for an insurance company, is to recover them for a price & that’s about it as far as the story goes!  It’s very much an exploration & puzzle focused adventure in which you can only access 5 worlds in any one game so you need to play it at least a few times more to find them all. I was fascinated the 1st few times I played it as the puzzles & objects you need to find vary on revisiting worlds, but alas it started to become tedious so I never found the world the screenshot above represents!

Five years ago I had a great time torturing the guessers with this game (while writing haiku!).
It took them a couple of weeks to guess it.
Finally, I had to write a mini-review.

P.S. The creators of the game boasted about their randomizer and claimed that you could play Scavanger Hunter for over 3 000 times without facing the same set of puzzles twice.

I’m glad you had a great time! Laughing

P.S. I suspect you’re still torturing guessers.

Google translate wasn’t that good but I think I picked up enough to agree with most of what you said (I think?)

That may be true in the respect of actual combinations of puzzles over the 5 worlds you visit each time but it does come back to a lot of repetitiveness within those combinations. But I did think it was a cleverly designed game for a small independent studio.

How are puzzles the randomized? The location of the objects? Is it the same puzzle with different objects?

Sure, but in a different way: now I don’t post new pictures for guessing.

Ok, got it, the puzzles are always variations of hidden object, what changes is what to search and where.
