What Never Was is a well crafted little first person puzzle adventure which sees you unearthing an ancient mystery while clearing out your grandfather’s attic.
Set in the late 2000’s, What Never Was puts you in the shoes of Sarah, a young woman whose grandfather has recently died. You have taken on the task of clearing out his attic, but it seems that your grandfather has more than a few secrets in his life and he’s left you a trail of clues to help uncover them.
Taking around 20 minutes to play through, What Never Was features a similar mechanical puzzle style to The Room games, with you gathering clues and useful objects then figuring out how to interact with the mysterious mechanisms in the attic. As you progress you unravel more of the lore and mythology that your grandfather was investigating.
It’s a very polished little puzzle adventure with high quality visuals, great voice work an interesting narrative and cleverly designed puzzles. Unfortunately the game ends just as your real adventure seems to be starting, but hopefully we’ll get to see that in a sequel!
