Briefly about the game
Observation is an unusual horror adventure game. The plot of the game focuses on what happens to Dr. Emma Fisher during her mission to the Observation Space Station, which orbits the Earth in 2026. The game begins when Dr. Fisher awakens and tries to contact the Houston base. She talks about a possible, mysterious collision or accident that caused the station to spin constantly. When no one from the team answers her calls, she turns to CAM – artificial intelligence. The player controls the SAM in the game. As an AI system, you don’t have a physical body. This limits your ability to control cameras located inside and outside the station and interact with various computers and digital panels in your field of view. As you progress through the game, you will gain access to more maps and station diagrams. This will allow you to explore every area of the station and help Emma solve the mystery. The game uses its environment to create a dark, thriller-like atmosphere. This provides a very unusual narrative experience that puts the player in an almost claustrophobic state.
How long does it take to complete?
Observation can be completed in less than four hours. Carefully exploring the station, searching every room and searching for documents in order to recover the memory lost by SAM, can take even ten hours.
Does the game have multiple endings?
No, the game has only one ending. However, its interpretation can give rise to many interesting thoughts and discussions.

The player takes on the role of SAM, the artificial intelligence responsible for managing the space station. As a result of a mysterious event, the facility is damaged and most of the crew members disappear. While helping survivor Dr. Emma Fisher find them, we’re also trying to decipher a mysterious message we’ve received from an unknown source.
The gameplay mechanics used in Observation are quite unusual as we don’t control the characters in the classic sense of the word. Our hero, SAM, is an artificial intelligence – devoid of a body, but influencing various elements of the station. As Dr. Fisher travels through different locations, it’s up to the player to help her by taking control of individual systems and using them to solve puzzles. Thus, we give the heroine the opportunity to take further steps and learn more about the story prepared by the creators.
Observation has only one mode
Observation boasts an attractive 3D graphic design. The graphics look quite realistic and do a good job of capturing the claustrophobic atmosphere of the space station. The advanced lighting and shading systems are particularly impressive.
