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 a rather pleasant experience, all told. The puzzles are smartly designed, offering a decent challenge without being too obscure – for the most part. The calming backing audio and colourful visuals make it easy to get sunk in, too, with even harder areas a joy to just be in. While the story side fell flat for me, at least it keeps out of the way of the puzzling action.
Despite a captivating art style and competent puzzle-solving, The Sojourn can’t deliver on the story front to complete the package. While everything from the mechanics to its presentation is engaging at first, each world includes just a few too many puzzles before changing things up. The game is an impressive package at first glance, but it lacks the minute details that really tie everything together. It ends up being nothing more than a competent sojourn.
