It’s sold as being Kafkaesque, and so whether SELF: Where’s my father will appeal to you will all depend on whether or not you are able to handle the weird nature of his worlds. But if you can, and you’re up for a new text-based adventure some decades after they went out of fashion, the launch on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S is one that is sure to excite.
Priced at £8.39 and available to download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, SELF: Where’s my father is an old-school text based adventure that plays with modern ideas. It touches the boundaries of reality, those of dreams, of the truth and covers the blurring of memories; in fact, from the blurb it’s all a bit weird.
But we like weird, and we like wonderful and this could well deliver both of those in spades, particularly as it promises to deliver a range of varying endings for good measure.
Playing with CRT visuals, rich pixel art and a narrative that borders on the fragmented, SELF: Where’s my father sees you attempting to find your parent, all whilst discovering yourself in the process. With many minigames promised, and a ton of potential under the hood, if you’re looking for something different, something a little out there, it seems like you won’t go wrong by picking up a copy of SELF: Where’s my father on Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S.
The Xbox Store will sort you out with the download. And if you wish to know more, hold tight for our upcoming review of the game.
SELF is a suspenseful Kafkaesque text-based adventure game with simulation and puzzle mechanics. Could you seize the opportunity to find your father and your SELF back in this introspective journey?
