- Hindsight – What if the physical objects of everyday life, the possessions we hold close to us, were real windows into the past? Observe distant memories and unseen futures in Hindsight. From the creator of Plum, Hindsight is a narrative exploration game spanning the entirety of a woman’s life, from birth to the present day, as she tries to make sense of it all. Revisit his childhood home, sort through his belongings, and step through the windows to discover memories frozen in time. Pay attention to the little things and put together puzzles to change your point of view until you find the right perspective to delve deeper into the past. Long-forgotten memories and dreams follow one another. Linger as long as you want, but sooner or later you’ll have to come back to the present. What will you take with you? And what will you leave behind? Hindsight is available later today.
