Return of the Obra Dinn is a puzzle video game developed and published by 3909 LLC, a studio led by designer Lucas Pope. It was Pope's second commercial game following 2013's Papers, Please, and was released on October 18, 2018.
Return of the Obra Dinn is set aboard a fictional East India Company ghost ship whose crew and passengers have all mysteriously died, with the game's objective being to discover how. The player, as an agent of the shipping company assessing what happened, uses a combination of deductive reasoning and the use of a Memento Mortem stopwatch to return to the moment of a crew member's death to determine the identity of each of the sixty crew members, how and where they died and, if killed by human hands, the name of their killer. The game, played from the first-person view, uses a 1-bit monochromatic graphical style inspired by games on early Macintosh systems.
