Here's one we missed from the end of last month, it's called Nobodies and you're a government agent tasked with cleaning up after their assassins do their thing. Nobodies—no bodies, get it? Ahem…
Note: Key provided by the developer to our Steam Curator.
A slightly dark point and click puzzler we have here and it's actually pretty good. Surprisingly humorous at the start too, with your training mission involving you disposing of your predecessor. At one point I was just killing off lab rats, I won't spoil how and I know I should feel terrible but I don't. The way the game handles the darkness of it by using humour makes it silly rather than grotesque or morally wrong. That and I just quite clearly shouldn't be playing with chemicals. Where do all these rats keep coming from anyway?
Quite a clever idea combining the hidden object gameplay from other games into something like this. Each mission being an entirely self-contained puzzle, where you need to get rid of a body somehow and make sure everything is where you left it. The answer isn't always obvious either, took some figuring out but an enjoyable experience.
- Eleven murders to cover up: quick thinking and resourcefulness is essential to succeed in hiding the evidence.
- Packed with puzzles: each mission has a unique set of challenges to overcome, from classic inventory puzzles, to bespoke mindbending tasks.
- Multiple ways to solve a challenge: various ways to approach many situations, some more effective than others.
- Hand-crafted art: almost one hundred distinct hand-drawn scenes to search and explore.
- Inspired by real events: what if the horrific human experiments of the 50s and 60s got into terrorist hands?
You can find Nobodies on Steam.
