Finished up Unavowed from the Xbox For PC Game Pass today.

And it was great.

I've played some good adventure games this year on the PC (The Walking Dead: Season 3, Heavy Rain & Night Call, for starters) - but Unavowed takes the cake. Extremely good writing & voice-acting; great characters with personality; interesting plot & story; and some choices to shape the game & the outcome of it. In many ways, this feels like a throw-back to that pixel-art era of many of the LucasArts era of adventures - Maniac Mansion, Sam & Max: Hit The Road, etc etc.

Most puzzles weren't obscure either. You can always ask your companions for a nudge of an idea of what might need to be done. Doing that won't give the answer flat-out, though; especially with some of the harder puzzles. Puzzles aren't obscure and ridiculous, for the most part. And some puzzles can be solved differently, depending on who is in your party, as one character might have a different solution than another character (since certain character have their own special skills/abilities).

This might be one of the best ones (adventure games) that I've played in years, since The Longest Journey and Shadow of Destiny.
