The Academy: The First Riddle is the latest release from Croatian indie developer Pine Studio. It’s set in a grand academy pitched somewhere between Hogwarts and Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, and it’s heading straight for an iOS and Android launch on June 19th.
According to the game’s Steam page, you can expect a large focus on exploration, puzzles, and story.
With over 200 puzzles and riddles to solve, it sounds like The First Riddle could be a fairly extensive adventure, especially once you’ve factored in the amount of time you’ll spend traversing the academy.
Alongside your newfound friends, you’ll work to investigate the academy’s rich history and many strange goings on.
Dare I say this looks more like the Harry Potter mobile game experience that fans expected from Hogwarts’s Mystery?
He called it “a tidy, well constructed room escape puzzler that’s perhaps a little too slight for its own good”.
The Academy: The First Riddle will launch on Steam alongside the iOS and Android versions on June 19th. Pine Studio’s official site.
