What language is Cylne available in ?
In english. However the english language used is very basic and very rare. The game uses mainly symbolic elements : he can be finished without good english knowledge.

Is there a Linux support ?
Unfortunately not : I can't export the game for Linux with the UDK engine.

Is there a gamepad support ?
Yes. The default gamepad is the xbox gamepad. Of course you can use emulation.

There should be a "Hint-Option" or something like for puzzle beginners.
There is now a hint option by pressing the U key : a drawing is displayed.

Is there a multiplayer mode ?
No, Cylne is single-player only.

Is Cylne a sandbox game ?
No but player can sometimes feel disorientation...

Do you have any idea how much Cylne will cost ?
Around 16 $ / 10.4 £ / 12 €.

What is the story ?
There is no clear story. The player doesn't know who he is, where he comes from and where he goes. In a way, I'd like the player to create his own story. It's more about self revelation.
Someone told me about a chapter it's like a Rorschach test (it's a psychological test in which subjects' perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analyzed).

Similar games ?

I think players who love games like Kairo, Myst, Dear Esther, NaissanceE, The Path or Journey could love Cylne.

Is Cylne a Myst-like game ?
I haven't played Myst/Riven/Other Myst. Many comments report Myst. I saw on videos some strange similtudes. But I think one of the main difference is the universe. Cylne takes place in a fully unreal world. So I would answer yes and no...

How long will it take me to play through the game ?

It takes around five hours.

Is there checkpoints ?
Yes.

Is it a contemplative game ?
Not only, there are real puzzles to solve and some platforming.

Is Cylne a psychedelic game ?

I prefer to describe it as a poetic game.

Where are my weapons ?
You don't have weapons.

I can't move the player with my AZERTY keyboard :
Press ALT + SHIFT. Else use the arrows keys.
