If you like solving mysteries and can’t be bothered to replay Return of the Obra Dinn for the eleventh time this year, this isn’t a bad choice, but don’t expect it to be an artistic experience like it thinks it is. It’s occasionally smart, but at the end of the day it’s short, shallow, and somewhat forgettable.

As the credits roll on this brief but powerful experience, you'll realise a lot is left open to interpretation. For some, that's to be expected. For others, it'll be infuriating. Prospero rarely seems to be in a hurry – even when he bloody should be – and as such, his plodding pace is very much a gamer's Marmite; you'll either love it or hate it… but good grief is this a mystery worth solving.
