Guide a strange blue wanderer through an ethereal, forested world in this atmospheric puzzler. You’ll need a keen eye to match runic symbols in your inventory to their counterparts in the environment, a challenge that gets increasingly complex as the eponymous Pilgrim progresses through the game.

Game team Free Minds drew inspiration from their walks in the deep forests of Redmond, as well as the music of the classic Scottish electronic duo Boards of Canada.
