EVAN’S REMAINS

Evan’s Remains was released on June 11, 2020 by Whitehorn Digital. The game was developed by Matías Schmied. Evan’s Remains is a side scroll action game.

Years after a boy genius named Evan disappears, a bizarre letter arrives. Evan wants a girl named Dysis to come find him. As Dysis, you’ll need to solve an intricate series of puzzles to unravel the entire mystery—and bring Evan home.

Evan’s Remains requires a controller. The Xbox 360 controller works fine as does more recent models.

Evan’s Remains sticks more to the classic side scroll design. The original games were designed for NTSC television, VGA at 640×480 or possibly SVGA at 800×600 for some games when video cards started to offer 256MB of memory.

The game does not scale well on a 4K panel. The graphics are stretched thin but it is still playable.

Evan’s Remains is a mystery-thriller puzzle adventure about finding a missing boy: Evan. The game combines logic-based platform puzzles with narrative inspired by Japanese graphic adventure games.

Every time the player solves from two to three puzzles, the story goes forward and new mechanics are introduced. The challenge of the puzzles lies in the player’s ability to figure out what do rather than solve challenges based on skill. As the difficulty curve increases, the puzzles become more complex by combining two or more previously introduced mechanics.
