Full review

Calluna is an immersive adventure game that takes players on a journey through the life of Ole Bull, Norway's first superstar and celebrity. Set in the beautiful landscapes of Bergen, Paris, and Cairo, this game allows you to play as Ole Bull in four different stages of his life - young, old, rich, and poor.

The game offers a semi-open world experience filled with interactive items and townspeople who add to the authenticity of each location. As you explore these environments in first-person perspective, you will come across quests based on historical events from Ole Bull's turbulent life. Solving these quests not only provides a challenging gameplay experience but also sheds light on the fascinating story behind this iconic figure.

One of the standout features of Calluna is its ability to capture Norwegian scenery and history with precision. The developers at Surrealist have put immense effort into creating an authentic representation that showcases both the natural beauty and national romance associated with Norway.

In addition to its engaging gameplay and historical focus, Calluna also introduces players to the captivating compositions of Ole Bull himself. As a renowned violinist and composer from the 19th century, Ole Bull's music adds another layer of richness to this already immersive experience.

While playing as Ole Bull may be reason enough for many gamers to try out Calluna, it's important not to overlook its future updates such as save game functionality and Steam Achievements integration. These additions promise even more replayability value by allowing players not only to progress through their own unique journeys but also unlock achievements along their way.

Surrealist has done an impressive job in creating their debut title with Calluna. The attention given towards accurately capturing both historical events surrounding Ole Bull’s life while offering an enjoyable gaming experience is commendable. If you are intrigued by exploring real-life history within fictional gaming experiences or enjoy puzzle-solving quests, Calluna should definitely be on your radar. With its captivating storytelling, immersive environments, and future updates to enhance the overall experience, Calluna is a game that deserves the attention of adventure enthusiasts and history buffs alike.
