Best of 2021: The best puzzle game & adventure

Last year, we were wondering if we should rename our category of logic games and adventures, and this year the genre definition of candidates is tempting even more. What about the fact that even domestic Amanita no longer does clickable adventures and all studios mix genres as they please?

But beware, this category is definitely not a repository for games that are not action, RPG, strategy, simulation, sports or racing. On the contrary, it was relatively tight and in the end the favored time loop The Forgotten City or the interactive short story The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante did not make it into the top three! This year, three very, very prominent candidates for the overall victory in the game of the year …

3rd place: Happy Game

It’s not clickable, but it’s still an adventure game. In Pavel’s review, Amanita’s psychedelic adventure earned one of four top ratings this year, and the hymns not only gave him the courage to break out of the classic box of good games for everyone. The horror canapé strikes a disturbing string of children’s experiences, which we prefer to displace, and pulls them back to the surface. Thanks and we’ll meet for therapy!

2. místo: It Takes Two

It Takes Two

This year’s creation from the workshop of Josef Fares and his Hazelight Studios is a genre mix of perhaps everything with predominant logic puzzles, wrapped in a neat box of couch cooperation. Thanks to the great tempo, it never ceases to surprise with supplies from an endless well of ideas, and the resulting game is not only one of the best of 2021, but also one of the best cooperative titles ever.

1st place: Inscryption


Daniel Mullins’ inscryption cleverly disguises itself on store pages as a simple card affair combined with a virtual escape game. And it remains so for quite a long time after its beginning … Before everything changes.

We won’t go into much detail about what exactly. As Patrik writes in the review, it’s a shame to find out anything else about Inscryption in advance and spoil the very special gaming experience of peeling off many fascinating layers.

With this gold medal, you just have to trust us a little bit that we’re not crazy and play Inscryption yourself. You can’t try much better games with this year’s release date – maybe none at all.
