You know what they say: A picture is worth a thousand words, and that’s exactly what this new game Photographs is all about. If you look closely enough at a picture, you can discover all of the connecting lines that tell the past, the present, and even the future of an individual. Photographs uses this phenomenon to create an engaging narrative out of its enigmatic pictures.

Because of its unique nature, it is very difficult to say what kind of game Photographs exactly is, but at its heart, it could be described as a puzzle adventure title. The game features numerous stories for players to go through, each taking roughly 30 minutes to finish.

That said, it is highly recommended that you play this game when you have a good chunk of time at your disposal. Not that you have to, but once you start playing, it’s really hard to stop. Photographs intertwines the narrative and puzzles in the best way possible to create an experience that will capture your full attention.

In every story, you will be presented with a scenario containing various objects as well as people of interest. As you examine something closely, a small photograph will pop up alongside a mini puzzle that you have to solve. The thing is, these puzzles are totally not random, as they tie closely into the story.

Each time you take a complete photograph, the scene gets clearer and clearer, ultimately uncovering the climax of the story, some of which will have you ponder the meaning of humanity. With its creative ideas, Photographs manages to deliver its storytelling in a way that is somehow so inherently special.
