Old Man's Journey

Old Man's Journey is an adventure game developed by the independent studio Broken Rules. The game's protagonist is a bearded elderly man who goes on the titular journey in order to meet with his family. The plot is told only through a series of pictures. As we play, we get to know the most important moments of our protagonist's life. We explore various areas in Old Man's Journey, like small towns, river valleys, and even mountain tops. Although the game is in 2D, the locations have something from the third dimension in them. Our hero can go deep into the visited places, but to do so, he has to solve a more or less complicated puzzle based on changing the terrain's topography. For example, creating a hill can lead to the creation a bridge, or creating a valley can give us access to previously blocked area of the map. That's how we get rid of various obstacles and traps that await our elderly hero. The game has eye-pleasing visuals that bring to mind illustrations from children's books. Old Man's Journey also has a melancholic, instrumental soundtrack.

Old Man’s Journey for PC / Windows is a unique adventure game developed by the indie studio Broken Rules. This is the fourth game from the developers that debuted in 2009 with the well-received And Yet It Moves.

The Plot

As the game’s title may suggest, we play as an elderly man who goes on a journey to meet with his family. As we play, we will learn the most important parts of our hero’s life, including all ups and downs. What is interesting is the fact that not a single word is said during the game. Instead, developers decided to use visual narration and present the game’s plot only through pictures.

Mechanics

Action in Old Man’s Journey for PC / Windows is presented from a side-scrolling perspective. Gameplay focuses on exploration of various locations. Our hero, equipped with a walking stick and a backpack, will travel to small towns, river valleys, to the mountain tops, and even to the sea shores. Even though the game is in 2D, locations have some elements of the third dimension to them. Our hero can go deeper into the areas, but he has to solve unusual, more or less complicated riddles to do so.

We can freely change the terrain’s topography in Old Man’s Journey, i.e. creating a hill will result in the appearance of a natural bridge across the river, or creating a valley will grant us access to the previously unaccessible area of the map. This is how we make our way through the game, slowly approaching our destination, and how we deal with various obstacles and traps that await us.

Technical Aspects

Old Man’s Journey for PC / Windows has eye-pleasing 2D visuals that bring to mind hand-drawn illustrations from children’s books. The game also has a melancholic, instrumental soundtrack.
