How good does Orten Was The Case look?

Has a time loop mechanic ever been utilised in the way it has in Orten Was The Case? Yes, perhaps. But we do know one thing, that mechanic probably hasn’t looked as good as it does in Orten Was The Case. This is a bit of a stunner – and it was all created by one solo dev prior to today’s launch on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC. 

Previously working as an animator on the likes of It Takes Two, A Way Out and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (that’s the quality you’re looking at here), the solo dev at Woodhill Interactive today launches Orten Was The Case to the world. It’s playable across all the usual formats, running Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation, Switch and PC. 

A stunning new puzzle adventure

And boy, without continuing to go on, what a brilliant visual treat this looks to be. Orten Was The Case comes complete with graphics of the very highest quality as it throws you into the life of one Ziggy. This little guy is the unexpected hero of a Swedish neighbourhood, as he looks to put a stop to a scheme that is intent on ending the world. 

The thing is, after an explosion, Ziggy wakes up in a time loop, kicking off just mere minutes before destruction. Now, we’ve watched The Lazarus Project and understand how these things work. With that in mind, we reckon old Ziggy will be in need of a bit more time if he’s going to continue his world saving mission. But hey, we’ll try and help him as best we can.

Whatever, Orten Was The Case then plays out to allow the player to focus on a host of puzzles, challenging the mind like never before. It’s here where more mysteries come to the fore, as answers are slowly given up. 

That may be the main core, but in Orten Was The Case you’ll also get to partake in some graffiti, take in a bit of meditation and more. The world of Orten Was The Case is never but diverse, engaging and full of excitement. And we cannot wait to play it. 

And remember, solo dev…
