Syberia, the single player mystery adventure, narrative-based title is free on GOG.com
If you dig games like Life is Strange and The Last Day of June, then Syberia is definitely the title for you. The game tells the story of Kate Walker, a young lawyer who finds herself trying to uncover the secret of the mysterious machinery at a factory in eastern Europe. As she tries to find Hans, the inventor behind all the equipment she finds herself in a series of strange events making her question everything.
The reviews of the title seem to reach a 50 – 60 percent rating, praising the title for its rich visuals but providing complaints about the game’s weak puzzle design and more often than not, clunky movement. But hey, it’s a free game.
Kate Walker, a young ambitious lawyer from New York, is handed what seems to be a fairly straightforward assignment. Just a quick stopover to handle the sale of an old automaton factory hidden in the alpine valleys, then straight back home to New York. Little did she imagine, when embarking on this task, that her life would be turned upside down.
On her expedition across Europe, traveling from Western Europe to the far reaches of Eastern Russia, she encounters a host of incredible individuals and locations full of extraordinary machines and an amazing atmosphere. In her attempt to track down Hans, the genius inventor – the final key to unlock the secret of Syberia – she will traverse both land and time on a journey that will throw all that she values into question, while the deal she sets out to sign turns into a life-changing experience.
