Syberia: The World Before is an adventure game and the fourth installment of the popular game series. It was developed by Microids, and the project was headed by Benoit Sokal, a Belgian artist who was responsible for all previous parts of the series and for such productions as Sinking Island, Nikopol: Carnival of Immortal or Paradise.
Syberia: The World Before is a sequel to the previous parts, but it has been developed in such a way that knowing them is not necessary to play. The action of this game is set in two different eras, in which we control different characters. In 2004, Kate Walker's search for her own identity leads her to a salt mine in the Siberian taiga. The heroine gets trapped in underground tunnels, which turns the expedition into a real fight for survival. In 1937, we go to the fictional Vaghen and play as 17-year-old Dana Roze. The protagonist is on the verge of a great career as a pianist, but the Second World War and the threat of growing fascism keep her awake at night. Discovering long-forgotten secrets rests on the shoulders of both protagonists.
Siberia: The World Before is a classic adventure game. The game is about exploring locations, conversations, collecting items and solving puzzles. The game offers a great variety of puzzles. Many of them revolve around the use of mechanical constructs known as automatons.
Siberia: The World Before offers a single player campaign only. The authors have not provided for any multiplayer gameplay.
The audiovisual layer is a strong point of the game Syberia: The World Before and offers a unique atmosphere, which is a trademark of the series. The game has a soundtrack composed by the famous Inon Zur.
