Faraway: Director's Cut from developer Pine Studio is a first-person puzzle game that acts as a modern tribute to Myst. Out now with Linux support, it's actually a port of the very popular mobile version with several enhancements for the PC.
This is a puzzle game for players who enjoy a slight challenge but don't want to be taxed too much for the experience, as it's not particularly difficult. The puzzles are well designed though but they don't really take long to figure out. Like with Myst and other similar quiet puzzle experiences, it's all about the mystery of where you are and what's going on.
Definitely not one for the hard-core puzzle solvers amongst our readers, it's nothing close to the likes of Talos Principle or Portal but it does have a lot of charm going for it. Graphically pleasing, with a wonderful atmosphere that you can easily get absorbed into over 3 or so hours while you solve the various puzzles.
There is something resembling a story too with the mysterious desert "ruled by an ancient civilization" and it appears you're not the first to explore it. As you progress through, there's letters to find from someone else with voice-over giving you a small taste of what came before you. Secrets to find too, for those willing to explore everything.
Even without much in the way of difficulty, I still found it to be quite captivating and nicely calming. Worth a go.
You can buy Faraway: Director's Cut on Steam.
