Are Myst-like games making a comeback? Lately, we’ve seen Empathy, The WitnessAnamedia and maybe a couple of others, all in the style of Myst.

Now we have Monumental, in which you play a sole adventurer on an alien planet who is searching for a research team that’s disappeared. In the process, you’ll discover The Monument: a remnant of a highly advanced but long dead alien race that may hold the key to the planet’s dark secret.

This narrative-driven, puzzle-based adventure from Whipstitch Games gives you four primary tools: a flashlight, a data capture tool, a camera and a microphone. Exploration will be the order of the day.

Will you be able to find the truth long forgotten?

Well, you can find out right now. Monumental for PC is currently available on Steam for $9.99.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
