Papers, Please Creator’s Return of the Obra Dinn Slated for October 18 Release



Return of the Obra Dinn

The maker of Papers, Please, Lucas Pope, is returning with his new nautical affair, Return of the Obra Dinn, next week.

The game is positing itself as a maritime mystery on board the Obra Dinn, an ill-fated ghost ship that is part of the East India Company. Following the ship’s disappearance in 1802, it docks in Falmouth five years later, sending onlookers into a panic. Players assume the role of an insurance investigator in 1807, who must piece together the events that led to the ship’s destruction.

Visually, Return of the Obra Dinn is gloriously idiosyncratic, harkening back to the visual style of older Macintosh adventure titles. Pope posited the project as “an insurance adventure with minimal color,” blending its referential art style with his usual geopolitical undertones.

Much of the game’s mechanics is based upon “logical deduction,” wherein players are expected to discover the fate of each crewmember. Pope has gone on record to say the game has two endings: one bad ending which can be achieved in 3 or so hours, and a good ending which can take players anywhere from 6 to 40 hours.

Return of the Obra Dinn is set to meander into port October 18 for Mac and PC. For more, check out the game’s Steam page, and be sure to follow OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and Youtube.


Stalker 2 is Not A Revived Version of the Cancelled 2012 Project



Stalker 2

Stalker 2 has been confirmed as an entirely new project that has no basis on the cancelled 2012 sequel.

Roughly a decade ago, fans were excited when Stalker 2 was announced. Unfortunately, in 2012, Ukrainian developers GSC Games World was shut down and all progress on the sequel was put on hold.

All went quiet until 2014 where the company resurfaced and announced that development on a version of Stalker 2 was underway. Despite a developer build for the original Stalker 2 making its way onto the web, GSC Games World chose to start from scratch and create an entirely new AAA experience for the series.

GSC Games World has so far not stated why the decision was made to start from the beginning, aside from the assurance that the new game is currently in development and will hopefully hit stores in 2021.
