Over two hours of originally-scored music will help her maintain focus and unlock one of six vastly unique endings.
  • Over 60 well-crafted puzzels.

Great game. Love the puzzles and how they combined with the platforming sections. The artstyle is a blend between a lot of stuff, but there's something personal and scrapbooky about it. The biggest draw to this game is the atmosphere, the music doesn't interrupt the ambiance too much and compliments it rather well. Traveling between planets while reading about them with the radio in the background gives a comfy feel to the game. If you liked the movie Interstellar you'll enjoy this game.

Some Concerns:

I think the photography mechanic could have been utilized more as it's pretty much a substitute for player memory. It's appreciated but I thought the game would be based around it some how.

The battery/travel between planets didn't seem to add much other than give reason as to why you can't bounce between stars. If expanded upon a little more it could have been an interesting survival mechanic. But really I guess it's hard to design something like that along with such a fixed platforming puzzler.

Don't let these complaints detriment the game though, they're more or less things I noticed that could have been different.

Why is this game free?
Don't get me wrong, thanks very much for just giving it to me, but the Ferengi in me shudders to imagine all that lost profit. Considering the vast minefield of overpriced, underdeveloped trash floating around Steam's bargain bin, a game like this could easily fit into the more expensive end of the 'Under $10' bracket.

The graphics are...basic, but pleasant. The gameplay is like the original Prince of Persia, if the prince didn't handle like a waterlogged Nash Rambler. The environments and story are immersive enough to be engaging; vague enough to be mysterious. The puzzles can be infuriating for just long enough to stay interesting, until epiphany strikes to leave you (well, me, at least) feeling brilliant and stupid in equal measure. Some of the background art is staggering in its implication, and - hey! - you can even take photos to remember it.

At the end of the day (or, rather, the end of the first hour I played), Saira strikes me as a hybrid of Myst and Braid, with some Tomb Raider mantling and wall-runs tossed in just for funsies.

Give me more...please? I might even pay for the sequel...

Quick review:

Short Verdict: A nice and FREE metroidvania/puzzle/platform game that will keep you entertained for a few hours. It may not be awesome and could feel somewhat like a game you'd play for free on any website (but, hey, it's free on Steam, too), but it's above average. If you like those genres, it's definitely worth checking! Again, it's free! ^_^

Pros:
  • Nice balance between puzzle, platform and exploration--each part nice in its way
  • It's free!
  • BGM is good and you may even change the radio station when travelling
  • Multiple endings
  • Even has a decent story going on

Cons:
  • Should have controller support
  • Many of the items you get are useless for the true ending
  • Although it has some charm, its graphics are a tad bit too simplistic for me
  • Waiting to move from one planet to the other doesn't make any sense
  • The pinball minigame they have available for you to play while waiting is meh

Bought on / for: The developer decided they were done making money with Saira, so it's now FREE on Steam. And I'd still buy it if I knew how the game was. If you also liked it, you could also buy their other games, like Knytt Underground and support them (still haven't played it, but already own it). The least I can do is recommend it to you guys and share their website.
