Heavy on exploration. Light on gameplay. This is not a game for everyone.
Miasmata is one of those modern indie games that, in my opinion, is striving to be an artsy like experience than what is traditionally considered a game by the average joe. And just like those games with similar aspirations, the gameplay is diminshed so the player can be wowed by the "experience".
And that's why I was on the fence when deciding to recommend this because I couldn't help but feel that this game could've been grander if the developers spent more time on the gameplay aspect. However, it's hard to overlook what effort they did put in the environment/sound effects and I think it paid off.
Miasmata is beautiful to explore. Realistic looking and massive in size along with its varied topography, it's almost like hiking in a national park. But, it has a dark character and history to it as well that will become apparent if you decide to play it.
I only recommend this game to those who love exploring natural, beautious environments (and finding flowers for a cure) because that's what 90 percent of this game is. On the other hand, if you're the type of person who needs something constantly happening in the game, then you'll probably be bored with this one.
