Set in Poland during a dystopian cyberpunk future with a monolithic corporate overlord, Observer tells the story of “Observer” Daniel Lazarski looking for his son in a forgotten section of the city. Lazarski’s job allows him to enter the minds of people and manually retrieve memories, leading to sections that are disorienting and filled with symbolism.
Small conversations and side quests flesh out a bleak world where humanity increasingly blends with machine. A few forced stealth sections mar the overall experience but Observer contains a focused story with a compelling setting. Recommended for anyone looking to scratch a cyberpunk itch.
Observer was originally released August 15, 2017 and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
