Return Of The Obra Dinn: An Absurd Investigation

Lost Ship. Dead Crew. Bodies Everywhere. Unknown Fate. Usually, when we think of mysteries like this, the idea of playin g Detective comes to mind. After all, most problems require rational solutions, and who could be a more rational person than a detective? But can anyone be truly rational as we imagine them to be in pop media? Through the game video game Return Of The Obra Dinn, I’d like to explore this question and show that rationality often leads to more absurdity than we’d imagine.

Video games have a capacity for storytelling and immersion that other mediums cannot even hope to achieve. And yet they are seen as nothing more than a silly past-time. An escape. A hobby for the lazy. I’d argu ... gue against that notion. As the gaming industry has evolved, both larger AAA games as well as small time indie-games have been telling more and more complex stories. Some of these stories I’d like to share with you. Hi, I’m Pranav, and welcome to My Gaming Library.
