Equal parts Umberto Eco novel, Masonic initiation, and Psychic Friends Network, this three-disc mishmash of astrology, reincarnation, ancient astronauts, and gnostic philosophy tries to be so many things at once that it sometimes amounts to nothing at all (the slow-loading point-and-click action often produces seconds-long blank screens). Drowned God: Conspiracy of the Ages is the logical apotheosis of the endless quest to build a bigger and better Myst. The result is a game so obscure, you’d be better off perusing something more comprehensible — like the collected works of Zoroaster. C+
