Where Is 2013?
So, you survived the Mayan Apocalypse of 2012...what are you going to do next? Roll up your sleeves and avert yet another crisis, of course (and you thought you were going to Disneyland.) Mateusz Skutnik of Pastel Stories presents another dreamily surreal and richly engaging point-and-click adventure to help us play our way into the new year: Where Is 2013?
Feeling like a mash up of Garden Door, 10 Gnomes and, even, a sprinkle of Submachine, you're dropped into a world of atomic fallout, shifting magnetic fields and a malfunction of electricity everywhere, tasked with finding all the necessary objects and putting them back into place. Let the changing cursor guide you while exploring every possible angle and close-up. Besides restoring energy, try to gather ten glass marbles to earn an extra ending. The gameplay is engaging but it's the atmosphere—enchanting wind-chime and bird song ambient music is coupled with expert photographic and hand-drawn art making the most mundane scenery seem extraordinary—that is the real treat. Are you up for the task, survivor?
