Its called the Submachine Series, and it is one of the single most beautiful series of flashgames that I have ever had the pleasure to stumble across on the internet. Like most good games and stories, its hard to describe. If you crossed Myst
(the tv show), and the Bone
comics, you might get something like Submachine. Beautiful artwork with a goosebump-inducing and thought-provoking storyline that gives you more questions with every answer you get- particularly because, like in Lost
, you frequently get answers to questions you don't even know yet! To top it all off, the series is crammed full of some of the most wonderfully frustrating "the answer is right there, you just can't see it yet" puzzles since the Myst series went on hiatus. All created by one guy, an artist from Poland named Mateusz Skutnik- he's just recently released the 8th Submachine.
If you like games like Myst, or just want to see what a genius of art and game design can create when left to his own devices and given unlimited time, heres your playable proof of games as art: www.submachineworld.com/
