At Windows Central, we strive to inform you about games that really catch our eye. Every title can't be a AAA experience, and there are some smaller projects that we feel deserve some hype. One such game we recently heard about is called The Sojourn. According to the developer, The Sojourn is a thought-provoking first-person puzzle game in which you traverse the parallel worlds of light and darkness in search of answers to the nature of reality.
The description states that you are born into a beautiful, pure land, but everything is not as it seems. Darkness seeps through every crevice and forms the foundation of the world you live in. Your goal is to open your eyes to the shadows of the world to uncover the hidden truth. Gameplay revolves around overcoming obstacles by solving dozens of unique puzzles that will challenge your perception of your own reality.
The Sojourn should launch on Xbox One and other platforms in 2019. The title reminds us a lot of The Talos Principle and The Witness. It's definitely a striking game and hopefully will tell a meaningful story too. We'll just have to wait a bit to play it.
