The latest standalone chapter in the Wanderlust series is Wanderlust: Transsiberian, which takes you on a journey to the Easternmost reaches of Eurasia.
Developed by veterans of the Witcher, Hitman, Dead Island, and Dying Light games, Wanderlust: Travel Stories is the recipient of numerous industry awards, including Best Game Narrative in the Baltic Sea Game Award and Best Mobile Indie Game at Digital Dragons.
Transsiberian sees you stepping into the shoes of Henry, a professional photographer with a penchant for extremely long train journeys. The gameplay involves making decisions that have ramifications for the rest of the experience, inviting multiple playthroughs.
Wanderlust: Transsiberian is an hour-long episode, and cheaper than Wanderlust: Travel Stories. If cost has been deterring you from the series thus far, this might be a good time to board.
