Odyssey combines a deep story told through diaries you find on the island with challenging and rewarding puzzles, which are all based on real laws of physics and thrilling experiments. Explore the beautiful island, read the expertly written notes and solve puzzles that will test your knowledge of physics and logical thinking.
