Syberia3 Video Game Review + Giveaway

 ** A Geek Daddy received the featured product for free to review**
Experience the mysterious world of Syberia in the newest installment of the video game franchise now available to play on XBOX ONE and PS4 gaming consoles as well as on PC.  Former graphic novelist turned video game master craftsman Benoit Sokal transports players to a vibrant fantasy world whose locations and characters have a rich texture to them because they've been created using traditional sketch and watercolor methods instead of relying solely on digital production software.  Syberia3 is a combination of steam punk, pulp fiction, and campy horror movie that takes you on a fantastic voyage where using your wits is the key to succeeding in the game.  The game is essentially an incredibly detailed interactive comic book where players must discover clues and solve puzzles to overcome the story's challenges and mysteries.

A nice aspect of Syberia3 is that instead of there being a focus on characters' brawn and ferocity being used to succeed in muscling or shooting through levels the game  focuses rather on players using their intelligence to overcome the tasks and problems they are faced with.  The game's surroundings aren't just an attractive backdrop but rather an element of the game that needs to be explored for insights on how to advance through its story.  You'll need to discover and collect objects and then associate when they need to be utilized to solve puzzles or defeat obstacles.  Selecting how the game's main character responds to dialog has a "choose your own adventure" quality where your decisions have a real impact on how the story advances.  Plus there are optional game phases that enhance the playing experience if you select to participate in them.

Set a few weeks after the events of Syberia2, the game's heroine, a young New York attorney named Kate Walker, awakens from a coma to find herself held captive in a weird and creepy insane asylum. She needs to escape and reunite with the nomadic Youkol tribe as they participate in the ancient migration of their great snow ostriches which promises to lead her to the legendary last living mammoths on the planet.  Finding these mammoths are the last piece of the puzzle Walker needs to solve to conclude the assignment she was sent from New York on and has been pursuing through the previous two Syberia games.  While Syberia3 is a sequel it has enough stand alone elements that you can enjoy it without having played the previous games in the franchise.


A Geek Daddy has a digital download of Syberia3 to giveaway to one lucky winner.  Simply follow @Geekdad248 and retweet the embedded tweet below before 11:59pm ET on May 21, 2017 for a chance to be randomly selected to win the video game.  The winner can choose from his or her choice of either Playstation4, XBOX ONE or PC versions of the video game.  Must be a US resident over 18 years old to be eligible to win.

Syberia3's signature puzzles will challenge your brain and have you wanting to come back to the game again and again to take them on.  Plus its artistic landscapes and environments will draw you into wanting to explore this imaginative virtual world. Syberia3 is rated T for Teen because of mild foul language, violence and the use of alcohol. Plus I'd add it may be a bit spooky for younger children to take in and you don't want to be giving them nightmares. In addition to being available for XBOX ONE, PS4 and PC the game will be coming soon to Nintendo Switch. For more information about the video game, please visit
