A new first-person puzzle action adventure game has just launched on the Xbox One called NERO. Developed by Storm in a Teacup, this game will remind older players of the classic Myst game from the 90s, though naturally features richer graphics and a larger three dimensional world to explore.
NERO’s main focus is on puzzle solving and exploration with also hints of a larger storyline beneath the surface for players to experience as they progress. Here’s the official (and slightly awkward-sounding) description;
NERO is a first person adventure game based on puzzle solving and exploration. NERO is a wonderful journey in an magic world where a kid is the key to all locks and the nights is not as frightening as you could think. Play the role of this kid, followed by a mysterious black cloathed companion, discovering the truth behind this epic journey. Use the Sphere of Light to interact with the environment, explore and experience emotions and feelings that are uncommon in videogames, with a brand new next-generation visual novel reshaping the genre.
It’s unclear what these uncommon feelings will be but here’s hoping they’re good ones! This has been a pretty good week for smaller titles on the Xbox One with Lifeless Planet Premier Edition and Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark also getting a release. Have you purchased any of these games? Which one’s worth buying? Let us know in the comments.Microsoft, Nero, Video Games, Xbox One
