This is a short (just on 1 hour)
but enjoyable sci-fi based puzzle outing.
The story is almost
non-existent, and doesn’t matter. This is about the puzzling. There are
quite a few of them, and you progress from one to another as you
investigate the artefact.
They aren’t hard, and will
reward fiddling. On optical augmentation will help with a few. A few
inventory items will be used in fairly obvious places.
Graphics are fairly rudimentary
and the look is sterile, befitting of deep space and barren planetscapes.
There is no spoken word, but a suitably atmospheric soundtrack and some
ambient sound pad out the proceedings.
You don’t save, but can continue
from where you exited. I couldn’t find a way to exit, and had to alt-tab
and close the window from the desktop.
Point and click everything, but
hold and drag the scene to look around.
Played in 4 Chapters, The
Artifact doesn’t reach any great heights, but does what it does
