When I spotted that Lost Answers was a game that David Lynch might approve of, I had to have a look for myself.
Inspired by Lynch‘s Lost Highway, Lost Answers is a point-and-click adventure game where you, the protagonist (or maybe you’re the antagonist?) must unravel the mystery that surrounds you. Namely, who is that creepy clown, Hal? Did you actually kill someone, and why can’t you remember? Also, who are those Stephen King inspired Shining-esque twin girls at the end of the hallway in that not-so deserted manor in the desert? So many questions. But don’t worry, you’re not on the clock with Lost Answers. You have all the time in the world to figure things out.
After a brief prologue, you find yourself at the aforementioned desert manor. Enter the main door and you’ll be faced with a few hallways and some staircases which are all just metaphors for the choices you’ll have to make. Once you start poking around and asking some questions, the story will all start to come into focus. Or will you wind up more confused than when you started?
