The Great Perhaps is an adventure game developed by the independent studio Caligari Games. The game was released by Daedalic Entertainment, a company specializing in the genre, whose portfolio includes such titles as Deponia, The Whispered World series and The Pillars of the Earth.
In The Great Perphaps, we play as an astronaut who returns to Earth destroyed by numerous natural disasters. The protagonist quickly takes possession of a lamp-looking artifact that enables him to see the past. From now on, its aim is to discover the truth about the events that led to the global disaster and to try to save the planet.
In The Great Perhaps, the action was shown from the side. In the course of the game, we explore gloomy, abandoned locations, and solve various puzzles based on time manipulation, complemented by various mini-games. In this way, we gradually discover new fragments of the story puzzle, getting to know the history of both the world presented and the people who inhabited it many years ago. Our astronaut must be on guard as he encounters terrifying, mutant creatures on his way from time to time. As the protagonist is unable to fight, the player must look for ways to avoid them.
The Great Perhaps has two-dimensional visuals in cartoonish style, enriched with elements reminiscent of communist propaganda posters. The unique atmosphere is created by both the economical colors of the setting and the soundtrack adjusted to the events on the screen.
