Evan’s Remains is a side-scrolling indie game that combines the puzzle and visual novel genre games. Although each remains distinct, they are blended together to create an interesting experience for gamers who enjoy both genres. As you play through Evan’s story, puzzles will alternate with gameplay scenes in order to keep your interest piqued and provide variety during this journey of exploration into Vinca Island’s past which has been hidden away by time itself.

Evan’s Remains is a three-hour long adventure, and it never fails to surprise. Puzzles are tough if they can’t be bypassed by simply climbing over them or walking around. However, the protagonist has a knack for style that will make you stop every few seconds just to watch her hair blow in the wind as she jumps from platform to platform like some sort of goddess who doesn’t need running shoes.

This game combines logic-based platform puzzles with narrative inspired by Japanese graphic adventure games. This is a rare combination that will appeal to gamers who enjoy both platforms and story lines, as well as those looking for something different. The emotions of the player will be challenged as they solve a series of increasingly difficult challenges that require both strategy and problem solving skills to progress through an epic story line while meeting new allies, discovering secrets, and avoiding enemies who are out to stop you at all costs. Multiple saves would be nice but they are not necessary if some of the puzzles prove too difficult.
