The Initiate (available on Steam) is a first-ponyperson puzzle game worth playing. The puzzles are moderately challenging and spread out over a large area. There's a little element of "hidden item-ism" but I was able to beat it without much backtracking.



I just beat it today, and learned that the sequel literally came out yesterday on Steam Early Access. So I have more to play now.

One important caveat: the game lets you play in Low, Medium, High, or Very High texture resolution, but you can't beat the game unless you have at least High resolution! The clues aren't visible in Medium (or Low). I learned this the hard way and had to go back and redo things. I have no idea why they would do this, but it does increase the required specs for play.

It may also be unbeatable if you have red-green color blindness.

NOTE: I have no idea what that hint in the lower-right corner means, even though I beat the game.

Addendum: I think there's still more to the game post-mastery, for various reasons I won't spoiler. That might explain the hint.
