Best of 2008:
Hoshi Saga 3If you're unfamiliar with the Hoshi Saga series, then you're in for a treat as there are now 3 full games for you to experience. For the uninitiated, Hoshi Saga is a simple game of discovery. One part point-and-click and one part puzzle game, the objective in each stage is to find the star. How you go about doing that is different for every level. The task is up to you to figure out how.

Why we picked it: To say that the "third time's a charm" is an understatement, especially when considering the popularity of the whole Hoshi Saga series by Yoshio Ishii of Japan. The way that Ishii-san takes such a basic idea and explores dozens of ways to challenge and perplex you is astounding, garnering over a fifth of your votes and unanimous love from all of us here at JIG. Although simple in appearance and plan, and with 2 previous iterations before it, Hoshi Saga 3 still managed to spark our imaginations and fire every exploration synapse in our brains, which is why it earned a spot among the Best of 2008.
