Personal Recommendations

Ctrl Alt Ego: A true immersive sim in almost every way, environmental storytelling, emergent gameplay, systemic interactions, and non-linear levels, but at the same time it’s unlike any immersive sims you have seen before. Playing as a disembodied ego, a digital ghost, a bug in the system, you must find the truth, and a way out. It’s the best immersive sim in years, I have spoken.

Through the Fragmentation: Talking with stranger crow people, exploring and discovering secrets in this charming, atmospheric, and mysterious little adventure game. Its quest and level design is inspired by immersive sims although to a limited extent, I see the influence, and I won’t let it be forgotten. It’s a $4.99/3,99€ game and usually on sale for $1.24/0.99€, please try it! Crow Bar awaits you.

Weird West: An isometric dark fantasy action RPG set in the wild west, made by former Arkane developers like Raphaël Colantonio and Julien Roby with their new indie studio WolfEye. After a whole year worth of updates and improvements including mod support, Weird West is in its best shape for players to embark on their journeys. There is also a great first-person mod for you to try if you seek immersion in first person.

Gloomwood: Call it Thief with Guns or ResidenThievil, it’s a game that blends stealth immersive sim and survival horror elements so well and is instantly loved by many. One of its developers Dillon Rogers was once complained by GDC audience that he “spoke about Thief too much”, but if you love Thief or Resident Evil series, this game is for you.

Deadeye Deepfake Simulacrum: I was fascinated by a Twitter thread from its developer before release, answering how fast you can move in this game: through different builds and abilities, the answer is 1,171,875,000,000 m/s, which is almost 4,000 times the speed of light! DDS is the most complex and advanced 2D top-down immersive sim so far, and nothing comes close. Doesn’t it mean something when I tell you it’s more inspired by E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy and Ghost in the Shell than Hotline Miami?

Betrayal At Club Low: A Dice-Rolling TTRPG + Point & Click Adventure + Immersive Sim, crazy right?! This is Betrayal At Club Low, the fourth installment in the surreal Off-Peak universe created by now IGF winner Cosmo D. Are you the best nightclub infiltrator in the agency, or just a pizza delivery clown in the circus, play this game and find out!

Claimed by its developer ColePowered Games as a sci-fi noir immersive sim, players can explore almost anywhere they please (legally or illegally), lock-pick, hack, sneak, climb, and investigate whatever they can find in this city of crime.

Is It An Immersive Sim? Arkane Austin answered my question regarding blending immersive sim with open world design, speaking that a lot of stuff would be familiar for immersive sim fans. I’ll take their word for it! From what I’ve seen so far, I expect immersive open world exploration, environmental storytelling, emergent ability combinations (I hope they’re deeper than what were showcased), and some environmental hazards to make use of, and more.

Nintendo SwitchTwitter / Website — Third Person / Action Adventure / Role-Playing — $69.99 / 69,99€

Is It An Immersive Sim? Breath of the Wild had different quest structures, level design principles, player choices than traditional immersive sims, but it would be unnecessary to deny that there’re tons of emergent systems and interactions in it to get inspired from for immersive sim fans and developers (I believe that BotW was probably inspired by Far Cry 2, which was influenced by Deus Ex). Tears of the Kingdom would no doubt be more steps forward than BotW and further explore the possible boundaries of its design philosophy.

Mosa Lina — Oct 17, 2023

Steam (97% Positive, Demo✅) — Twitter / Discord — Puzzle / Platformer / Simulation — $4.99 / 4,99€
