Old Man’s Journey, a soul-searching puzzle adventure, tells a story of life, loss, and hope. Interacting with the world around you, you’ll shape the landscape to create the old man’s path forward. Experience heartache and hope as you embark on a heartfelt journey through a sunkissed world.

Old Man’s Journey is a beautifully crafted game that tells a poignant story of life, loss, and self-discovery. As the player, you guide an elderly man on a journey through his memories, as he revisits important moments from his past and reflects on the decisions he made along the way.

The game’s graphics are stunning, with a hand-drawn art style that brings the world to life in a way that feels both magical and real. Each scene is full of detail, with intricate animations that add depth to the experience.

The gameplay is simple yet engaging, as you solve puzzles by manipulating the landscape to create a path for the old man to follow. I found some of the puzzles too difficult for a relaxing cozy game and had to look up the answer, but that’s what they have walkthrough guides for! The puzzles are challenging enough to keep you engaged and immersed in the story.

The story is told through visual cues and flashbacks as the nameless old man remembers important moments from his life. It’s a touching tale that explores themes of regret, loss, and redemption, and it left a lasting impression on me.

Old Man’s Journey is an ideal cozy puzzle game for anyone who appreciates a good story and beautiful artwork. It’s a short but memorable experience that will stay with you long after you’ve finished playing.

All video games are purchased by myself or gifted from a friend.
