You’ll need to be pretty clever to solve Oddysey’s puzzles, as they use actual science as the basis for each. You might even learn some stuff playing this.

According to a press release, you’ll have “to find clues that take you through the history of scientific reasoning in mechanics and astronomy, and use these to solve complex conundrums that unlock new parts of the island.”

It comes from a pair of academics who want people to learn while also having a good and challenging time. Have a watch of the trailer above.

Oddysey is currently in Early Access on Steam, and there’s 25% off at the minute.
