Hypnospace Outlaw uses its own originality to spark nostalgia for the weirdest time on the internet: the late 90s. It takes a while for it to “click”, but when it does, it’s an absolute treat as you work through your cases. With a solid 10-12 hours for the story to reach its conclusion, this is a fantastic experience I want more of. With there being more discovery and fascination ahead, you’ll only want to spend more time on this faux internet. While I wasn’t fond of the times I had to retread territory I had already cleansed, Hypnospace Outlaw is the most fun I’ve had playing a game this year so far.

Hypnospace Outlaw (Critical Eye Review): 90s Kids video thumbnail

If you enjoy point and click games set in an alternate history, border lining dystopian. That has humour which makes you laugh but at the same time cry at an internet that looks and feels like the ’90s but with an attitude that wouldn’t feel out of place in modern times. Then you can’t go wrong with this game. I feel Hypnospace Outlaw earns itself a Silver Thumb.

Hypnospace Outlaw recreates the look and feel of the internet from the late 90s. The game has a fun creative world with original music that keeps the player immersed in the game. The puzzles and investigations into the violations are smart and rewarding to solve.

Hypnospace Outlaw offers once of the best point and click puzzle experiences in a long time that lets you think through the puzzles to find your own solution rather than being spoon fed the answers.

If you take it at face value as a simulation, you'll find a faithful and rewarding experience; a free demo on the eShop should give you an idea of whether you'll enjoy the game. Ultimately, it's best to take your time with Hypnospace Outlaw rather than rushing through to the end. The devil, as they say, is in the poorly-designed webpage details.

Hypnospace Outlaw is the embodiment of the 90s internet culture. It's a mindboggling, sometimes frustrating point-and-click puzzle game that will provide hours of entertainment through its clever puzzles and dozens of unique webpages.

Hypnospace Outlaw is a retro-trip into the wild web of the '90 and it is also a great detective game.
