The Syberia series are point-and-click adventure games from the early 2000s that send you distorted versions of Europe and Russia, which become different from the one familiar with clock automatons, failed utopias, and lots of mammoths. . They were directed by Belgian comic artist Benoît Sokal, who died earlier this year and the art helped give them an extraterrestrial atmosphere.
Currently, the first two Syberia games are free at GOG, and you can add both to your account to play now or later. (If you're having trouble running Syberia on a modern operating system, try using it DxWnd, which has several compatibility options to emulate earlier versions of DirectX.) They are free to promote the fact that GOG has Sale of French Touch to celebrate French games, which means it can be achieved A Plague Tale: Innocence for a 70% discount, Absolve for a 75% discount, Heroes of Might & Magic 3: complete with a 75% discount, Take advantage of a 50% discount, i GreedFall for a 50% discount.
A third game in the Syberia series was released in 2017, but its move to 3D was not well received thanks to its clumsy controls and uglier appearance. As Fraser wrote in his paper review, "Gone are the magnificent pre-rendered scenes from previous games, replaced by simple, often ugly, three-dimensional environments." A fourth game, Syberia: The World Before, is in development.
