Many perceive the hidden object genre to be far less dynamic than it really is. In actuality, these games run the gamut from stories of love and romance to crime, supernatural, and even spiritual themes.
Riddles of the Past takes on a concept which is quite popular in the gaming mainstream right now: post apocalyptic settings. Protagonist Emily Hanson has woken up with absolutely no memories of anything in an abandoned town. For some reason, this town also features rusty old robots which makes the whole place creepier.
She must work to uncover her memories as well as what went on in this town to get it to this state. Riddles of the Past is currently on Steam Greenlight.
