Odyssey, from developer The Young Socratics, is a science puzzle adventure game — with real science. Specifically, the game focuses on scientific reasoning and argumentation in astronomy and mechanics from the ancient Greeks to Newton.

You’ll be journeying to the exotic yet dangerous Wretched Islands, where 13-year-old Kai and her family are in need of rescue.

You’ll traverse the islands by solving puzzles. Your journey will be of the intellectual variety as you reconstruct the creative ideas and arguments of some of the world’s greatest scientists and philosophers. A journal will fill in the story, provide you with info and reveal clues.

Odyssey is set to arrive February 23, 2017 on Steam Early Access for Windows and Mac . This will give you time to sharpen up those brain cells. Wink

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.
