Obduction is not for everyone. It’s a game that doesn’t tell you a lot about what’s going on, with the exception of the two possible climaxes. It’s also a game that intentionally misleads you, and expects you to bang your head up against a wall until you figure out the solution (or use a walkthrough, I guess.) But for me, it wound up being one of 2016’s most rewarding experiences. From start to finish, it’s a downright joy to play, and a title I won’t soon forget.
