Syberia tells the story of Kate Walker, a young lawyer from New York, who is handed what seems a fairly straightforward assignment – a quick stopover to handle the sale of an old automaton factory hidden in the Alpine valleys, then straight back home to the US. Little did she imagine when embarking on this task that her life would be turned upside down. On her expedition across Europe, traveling from Western Europe to the far reaches of Eastern Russia, she encounters a host of incredible characters and locations in her attempt to track down Hans, the genius inventor – the final key to unlocking the secret of Syberia.
The game was originally released in 2002 on PC by Microïds, and published through The Adventure Company. It is a traditional point-and-click adventure game with realistic graphics and story telling. Just like traditional adventure games, Siberia makes it impossible for players to die, which encourages exploration and experimentation.
We believe that this game deserves its place on this list despite its relatively old age. It nicely showcases just how beautiful old-school graphics can be and how masterfully they can contribute to creating a great atmosphere.
