    Thoughtful, bold (in colour and execution), and with absolute faith in its players to handle being cast into the glorious unknown, Future Unfolding is a rare delight. If these words inspired any desire to play it whatsoever, then do so; before you learn too much else about it.

    A smartly designed and beautiful puzzle exploration game. [Issue#185, p.81]

    Future Unfolding doesn’t compete with the open world delights of this season’s big hitters like Horizon: Zero Dawn or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but instead offers a wonderfully relaxed and immersive combat-free alternative. It’s a safari rather than a big game hunt, but one that deserves to be explored.

    Future Unfolding is a proper UFO. Even if it’s a bit repetitive, it’s moslty weird and hypnotizing before anything else. Not to mention that it’s also beautiful, for the pleasure of our eyes and ears.

    The heady blend of peaceful and puzzling at work is worth your full attention.

    Unraveling the mysteries of the game mechanics set in this mystical environment is the main motivation. At least until you are lulled into the tranquil setting and start realizing that you are following a monotonous future unfolding here and then...

    Future Unfolding has a bold idea behind it, and creatively it is impressive that this game was made from a three-person team. Unfortunately some decisions didn’t quite work in the big picture and there won’t be many hours in the game before the player will stop enjoying the journey and start feeling trapped in a mirror room.

    If you enjoyed games like Zelda, Journey, and The Witness you might just love this one.
    It’s like Zelda without generic combat.
    It’s like Journey but with puzzles.
    It’s like The Witness but with action.

    The game is incredibly beautiful and has a dense atmosphere. It will make you relax, but also surprise you all the time. It’s hard to describe the game in more detail without spoiling it.
