Heading into our review of Devolver Digital and developer No Code's Observation we had seen the trailer, with its wonderfully detailed recreation of a space station and hints at some sort of survival story being told. After completing the game, it's safe to say that this riff on 2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the best pure sci-fi things we've seen or played in a long while.

With often exceptional writing and pacing, Observation excels due to the presentation built around this setting; as you take direct control over various space station cameras, moving around modules and interacting with systems. This then evolves to taking direct control of a spherical robot where at times you can leave the confines of the game’s International Space Station setting to move about its exterior. With video artefacts, vertical hold effects, analog and digital noise, varying FOV levels, and more, each visual flourish adds to the feeling of being there at a real space station floating in orbit – as an AI no less.
