We haven't played anything like to The Antikythera Tablets before. It really feels like those fancy puzzle boxes that we would see on a Chris Ramsey video. What I really love about this game is not just the clever puzzle mechanics but also the way the creator was able to use it to tell a story. As you maneuver a cog left and right or trace a path with a twine, you're also picturing a Greek mythology appear right in front of your eyes. By completing each task, you're one step closer to the truth. YOU are the TRUE hero in this game!
