About This Game

Kate Walker, a young ambitious lawyer from New York, is handed what seems a fairly straight forward assignment - a quick stopover to handle the sale of an old automaton factory hidden in the alpine valleys, then straight back home to the US.

Little did she imagine when embarking on this task that her life would be turned upside down. On her expedition across Europe, traveling from Western Europe to the far reaches of Eastern Russia, she encounters a host of incredible characters and locations in her attempt to track down Hans, the genius inventor - the final key to unlock the mystery of Syberia. Her voyage across land and time throws all she values into question, while the deal she sets out to sign turns into a pact with destiny.

Key Features

  • A gripping script that goes beyond your imagination

This is one of those games that is hard to take a break from. You want to know what's next in the story.
Well written and entertaining.

If you're in the right mindset for it, and comfortable with a game with a slow pace, (I admit, Kate did a LOT of running as I played through this), this is a charming, poignant few hours spent, with a lovely soundtrack - well worth the .99 I paid for it on sale.

Despite Syberia's age, it's carried along by a intriguing storyline, creative puzzles and a sensitive, nuanced potrayal of the death of one age, as another takes hold. The tale weaves several themes into its fabric, touching upon everything from the tumultuous changes throughout 20th century Europe to the march of time and technology, the increasing pace of life, what matters, what captures us, and in the end, what truly defines us.

For negatives, I don't have many other than noticing a few deviations between script and text, as well as a curious bits where accent/native tounge of the character was completely at odds with the words that were actually being spoken. Not a big deal, and easy enough to overlook.

To add: I didn't have technical issues with the game myself, other than the odd graphic bug, and then only when alt-tabbed; easily removed when clicking thru to the next screen.

Good old classic P&C adventure with a very interesting story which brings you to nicely drawn places with much love to detail.
If you love that genre it is a must play.

喜欢探索,阅读,解密的玩家不能错过了。游戏拥有丰富的故事背景,尽管我才玩了一会儿,但已经能体验到了。如果你喜欢玩Gone Home,但又觉得剧情太单薄,像我就是这样觉得,那么这个游戏就是上佳的选择。

Syberia’s writing is–IMO–worthy of a top-notch novel. In terms of quality, the game’s story, characters and atmosphere surpass those of the vast majority of today’s titles. One of the best games I’ve played so far–everything about it is superb. While playing, it often made me think about life and where my priorities are. Also, remember that you can double click to make Kate (the protagonist) run if you feel that her walking is slow.
