The monotonous world of passport checking made for a brilliant game in Papers, Please. Now you can check out the trailer for Dukope's upcoming game, Return of the Obra Dinn, which has you doing an insurance assessment of a ghost ship.
I'm really looking forward to Return of the Obra Dinn, the next game from Papers, Please creator Lucas Pope. The version at PAX West is much improved from the early demo you may have played, with a much more extensive "ship's log" interface that lets you keep track of all the murder mysteries you have to solve by reliving people's moments of death as you explore a ship in classic Macintosh-style monochrome. It shouldn't be long now before it's out.
The insurance adventure with minimum colour takes place in 1807 on the ship Obra Dinn which was lost at sea several years earlier. Now it has returned to port with no crew and someone has to piece together what happened.
Paperwork has been promised. It's amazing where we live in a world where I hope they deliver.
Obra Dinn ends with an insurance assessment, as any half-responsible adventure should. 21 pages of riveting claims. pic.twitter.com/iIpd5Oaoti
