Recommended if you like the real mccoy, puzzleventures, Myst

Description: This game is the cat’s pajamas. If you are into puzzle-adventure games, welcome to your next four weekends because that’s how many episodes are currently available for XON. Awesome interface on android. You can just glide around and take in the beautiful graphics (look out for the sun halo — it’ll blind you [but in a good way]) and listen to the occasional raven crowing. This game is an undeniable disciple of Myst.

As of writing, I have only played Episode One because it was free. Zero mythology so far but the world has a very cohesive aesthetic. Crystal orbs, giant granite ziggurats, secret tunnels and plenty of levers to pull. Puzzles were challenging enough and it’s clear that Episode One is just a teaser so I imagine the difficulty only increases from here. I would and will pay $1.99 per episode to play more of this. BRAVO.

ProTip: Turn up your display brightness when playing Xon. The shadowing in this game does not fuck around.
