If puzzlers are your thing then it’s a good day for you as in the immediate aftermath of The Pillar: Puzzle Escape launching, there’s yet another first-person adventure full of puzzles vying for your attention. It’s the rather surreal Oneiros which is out right now on on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
In Oneiros, you’ll take on the role of the protagonist Liam who wakes up late just like any other day, but something feels different for some reason. Oddly, the doors to his room are locked, his laptop’s been hacked, his phone’s broken and nothing seems right at all. And while the surroundings definitely look similar to his room, at the same time, he’s not entirely sure. To make matters even more questionable, he just had the weirdest dream ever, is suffering from a terribly bad head, and doesn’t remember what he did yesterday.
Combining escape room concepts, classic adventure, and crafting mechanics, Oneiros is really going to put your problem solving to the test. Especially as you get to grips with the surreal nature and psychedelic visions of the narrative-driven experience. It’s the only way to break free of what feels akin to a vicious circle and to regain control of the situation at hand. Just figure out what’s going on and help Liam to escape.
Once you’re ready to confront the conundrums posed by Oneiros, simply pay a visit to the Xbox Store and part ways with £9.19 – although there’s a special discount in place for one week, meaning it’ll only cost £7.35.
