Developers Shin'en Multimedia wanted to create a game about experiencing weird things while holidaying in a strange place. The result was The Touryst, a breezy, isometric, adventure-puzzle game with a unique aesthetic, fun gameplay loop, and a ton of diverse mini-games to keep things fresh. It perfectly captures that feeling of being a tourist in a new place, dashing between historical attractions, while occasionally taking a break to enjoy some local activities as everyone else goes about their life. It's a game that you can pick up, play, and enjoy in 15 minutes bursts, or binge over several hours.
The The Touryst offers little in the way of direct narrative, except for one aged tourist who reveals the importance of the archipelago’s ancient monuments and provides hints as to your next objective. The protagonist himself is a portly, presumably middle-aged man, sporting chunky sunglasses, an awful moustache, and even worse floral t-shirt (though you can change that later). However, looks can be deceiving, and he’s more than up to any challenge on the island, be that navigating puzzle-filled ruins, spelunking in an abandoned mine, or taking to the waves on a surfboard.
Enjoys games with awesome stories and characters, along with new and interesting hardware. Dislikes day-one patches and driver updates.
