I’m looking for PC games like early stage Portal (or its addons like Rexaura), i.e. pure, straightforward puzzles.
I don’t want a game where everything attacks you and you fire a ton of ammo at it.
I don’t want a game where you have to click on everything you see, looking for clues, or worse, looking for some object that you needed three rooms ago.
I don’t want a game where you have to commandeer various types of vehicles and travel for miles to get to the next puzzle, and sometimes don’t even know which direction to go.
And I especially don’t want a game where success depends on ninja moves, or doing something very intricate in a short time limit.
I just want something clean and simple like Portal, where the rules are clear, the equipment is provided, and the most important tool for solving the puzzles is your brain.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
