Evan's Remains lets you solve puzzles to search for a missing boy, out now on iOS

Evan's Remains is a puzzle platformer infused with visual novel elements, out now on iOS. Developed by Matías Schmied and published by Whitethorn Digital, the pixel art game is shrouded in mystery - and it's up to the player to uncover the truth about a missing boy Evan through progressively difficult puzzles.

In Evan's Remains, you'll play as the mysterious girl Dysis on the search for an equally mysterious genius boy Evan. The intriguing narrative moves forward only when the player solves from two to three puzzles. New mechanics are introduced as the story goes on, and players will have to flex their brain cells to figure out what to do next in order to overcome the difficulty curve.
