Every once in a while point-and-clickers can prove that there’s still something more to them than nostalgic pixel art, humorous dialogues, and obscure puzzles, as this title so aptly proves. Taking on the role of watch peddler No Man, one becomes entangled in a love triangle of the cosmic beings Miss Mass and Golden Boy, which goes even so far as to witness the creation of the universe.
Combining noir detective ideas with more religious themes might sound crazy, but it seems to work in this case. With one surreal moment or puzzle following another, e.g. destroying a civilization, creating life, or improvising with a musician, it’s all part of the Big Bang or the quest for saving Miss Mass.
The game is out now on PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch with a 20% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, April 2, 2021, at 1 PM UTC. There’s also the Cosmic Collection which includes a digital soundtrack, artbook, and comics.
