Set in a grim, murky swamp, Schein takes a father who is searching for his lost son. Aided in his quest by a colourful, ethereal orbs that show things – both good and bad – when it’s summoned. They also alter the image of the player, from youthful, to aged. It’s a lovely story, and a very fun and challenging puzzle platformer. It feels very Limbo-esque, in both terms of setting and gameplay, but with the additional twist of the orbs adding a different dimension onto the gameplay.
One thing I’ve yet to mention in the game is the voice acting. Normally I’m hyper-critical on rubbish voice acting, but it’s very, very good in Schein. There are definitely some absolute howlers of lines in there, but on the whole it’s excellent.
