My wife and I enjoy playing mystery walking simulators together and have been looking for more-- Steam's recommendation engine is pretty terrible in finding others or lesser-known titles, so I thought I'd ask around for what others play! They don't have to be full-on walking simulators, just games where dying is rare/not a big component of the experience (looking at you, Visage!), and the rest of the game is all about solving a mystery/thriller of some sort. Preferably first-person games with realistic-enough graphics.
Ones we've played so far and have loved are:
- Dead Secret
- Gone Home (loose fit)
- The Painscreek Killings (really loved this one)
- The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
Ones I've got in my queue:
- Bohemian Killing
- Dead Secret 2
- Return of Obra Dinn
I've also played What Remains of Edith Finch, Dear Esther, Firewatch, and some others-- but those didn't really have a big enough mystery component to them (to be clear I liked them, they just didn’t have a dark/thriller vibe to em).
Any other suggestions?
