Syberia is a point and click adventure that takes American lawyer Kate Walker to a small French village. While she was supposed to finalize a simple purchase, of a small local automaton company, things become complicated. She embarks on a journey that will take her further to Eastern Europe and beyond.
The design is lovely and very stylish. The female protagonist is interesting and I love seeing her finding herself as she goes through this troublesome assignment.
One thing I didn’t remember from the game is how much sexism there is in it! I wanted to strangle Kate’s boss, her boyfriend and even her so called best friend, as well as her mother (basically many people she interacts with). It is even weirder because there are some great female characters present or mentioned in the story.
Seeing her eventually cut ties and do her own thing feels liberating. The story for the quest of Hans Voralberg is also very engaging. If you enjoy this type of games, you should definitely check it out!
