Returner Zhero is the sequel to the gorgeous sci-fi mystery game, Returner 77, by Fantastic. Once again, you’re on an alien spacecraft for five years solving puzzles and unraveling the mystery. Oh, and trying to save the human race. It can be tricky at times, but by solving ever-increasingly challenging puzzles, you may just find a way off the ship and back to Earth.
Returner Zhero – Final Cut clearly offers a slick presentation, but it’s the puzzle-based gameplay that really allows the game to shine. Much like an escape the room game the player is tasked with solving logical tactile puzzles in a first-person view (similar in style to the puzzles in The Room series) in order activate the alien technology on the spaceship so that the secrets of the past will show the possibilities of the future, and maybe a way off the ship and back to Earth. There’s a huge environment to explore, AI support if you get stuck on any puzzles, and alien technology to mess with.
