ZED is one man's surreal quest to reconnect fading memories and create a final work for someone very special.
A dying artist is trying to finish one last project. But there is a problem - he can’t remember what it is, or how to create it.
You find yourself in a cluttered and disjointed house, with mementos of a life scattered in disarray. You are in his dreams. You begin your journey with a mystery, how do you help this man remember? How can you assist him in reconnecting memories with the goal of helping him finish his last project, a gift for his infant granddaughter?
As you explore his memories and move deeper into a confused life, his thoughts slowly untangle and he begins to make connections.
ZED is a beautiful first-person narrative adventure with simple, straightforward puzzles. Exploring allows you to move deeper into a highly detailed series of dream worlds, places to examine a man's imperfect life and in the process maybe discover a little about your own.
What Players are Saying:
"ZED is perhaps the most visually gorgeous game I've played in a long while. It's a simple and straightforward collectible exploration game. It's at times dark and brooding and at other times light and joyous. It is always atmospheric and above all heartfelt." Steam review by Githnan
"ZED ultimately is what it is. A well told story, with gentle puzzles and scavenger hunting that attempts to solve the main character's psyche. That may or may not be your cup of tea, but if you enjoy a good yarn, it's worth a few hours of your time." Steam review by Greix
"ZED is an absolutely wonderful game. Beautiful graphics, story, and voice acting. The puzzles tie into the story, but are simple enough to not bog you down." Steam review by tahgtahvcover a little about your own.
Released in partnership with Cyan Ventures, the new publishing arm from the creators of the legendary games Myst and Riven, ZED is the vision of Chuck Carter, part of the team behind the original Myst. Co-written by Joe Fielder (Bioshock Infinite, The Flame in the Flood) and David Chen (Metal Gear Solid series, Narcosis), the game also features a riveting performance from veteran video-game voice actor Stephen Russell (the Thief and Fallout series).
Ratings and Reviews
The graphics, as expected from Cyan are beautiful. It is less a game and more a walkthrough of someones memories. Not much interaction but it allows you to look around at the artwork as you proceed through a story. When the word Myst is thrown around, I expected puzzle solving and there is none.
A great break from the usual
I love the scenery and the tasks. This is a huge break from the typical adventure game. I'm not even sure if it's actually a game, but I will play it again. You really don't need to pay much attention to the dialogue, but it's unusual enough that I want to play it again and pay more attention to what is being said. The immersion is great with no need for the typical puzzles.
Strange, and satisfying
Was looking forward to playing this and glad it came to the Mac. I had to adjust the graphics settings a little, but once I did it runs great.
This game is less of a traditional adventure or puzzle game, but more a work of interactive fiction. It's beautiful, and while fairly simple it has a great story that had me tearing up a little. Overall a really nice experience.
