I honestly wish I liked this game more than I did. It has a lot going for it, but if I hadn’t been reviewing it, I would not have made it to the end. Though seemingly inspired by some of the best games ever, The Sojourn falters in its ambition. On the other hand, if you like first-person puzzle games and want to stare at something incredibly pretty for a while, you could do a lot worse than The Sojourn.
The Sojourn is a game that knows exactly what it wants to be: a serene but mind-bending, puzzle-centric adventure. With its understated but beautiful visual style and background audio, it’s easy to let yourself become immersed in the challenges at hand. New mechanics are continuously introduced throughout, helping to keep the gameplay fresh and the difficulty level rising as more and more fiendish combinations of those elements must be utilized.
The Sojourn is the equivalent of one of those big books of crosswords you can buy at the supermarket check-out. Its puzzles are well-constructed and provide a nice mental workout, but they’re all rather one-note, and the game’s world is dry as toast. If you’re a hardcore puzzle nerd, give The Sojourn a shot, but those expecting to be taken on a deeper journey may be disappointed.
