Photography games are among my favorite sort of adventure video games. As someone who makes their living working with cameras daily, I feel compelled to play them whenever there’s a new release; Toem is the latest entry in this wonderful little subgenre. The hand-drawn indie game releases later this week and features exploration, photo challenges, light puzzle-solving, and a memorable soundtrack that makes it worth playing. Join Jill Grodt, John Carson, and me as we go hands-on with the charming adventure game in this episode of New Gameplay Today!
Something We Made, the studio developing Toem, further describes the activities that players can participate in via the game’s official website:
Set off on a delightful expedition and use your photographic eye to uncover the mysteries of the magical TOEM in this hand-drawn adventure game. Chat with quirky characters, solve their problems by snapping neat photos, and make your way through a relaxing landscape!
