There's several way to manipulating the player's psyche by using consumables,perform a certain ability or finishing a sub-quest. Psyche status can be checked by Player's character hand interface.

‘Psyche effect’ will be shown by visual distortion in the player’s character isometric avarta
as the character subjectivity presented effect.

Senses are player character’s 5 senses unlock abilities that can be performed to gain insight, reflect on past conversations, or simply notice the environment around them.

'Insight' is information treated like an item; it’s automatically gained after the player discovers information. Obtaining insight can change future scenes and offer new dialogue options, as well as enhance the player’s abilities.

Senses ability: Perception


Perception is a sight , hearing and scent abilities of the player that can be use gain an 'Insight' piece, performing on surroundings or to pass a ‘Perception check' on scene sequence.

'PERCEPTION WHEEL' Interface

'Effectiveness' - determines your ability level with the current sense highlighted. This determines whether or not certain perception checks can be cleared, as well as the quality of insight.

'Influence Marks'
- are a notification of your current buff or debuff. Gained by using consumables or as a consequence of a quest or event.

'Locked feature' - are enhanced utilizations of the given scent that can be unlocked as the player progresses throughout the game and discovers them.



VERBAL and ACTION icon

A Verbal :verbal options are any actions involving dialogue. Verbal influence marks can add more dialogue options.or block out others.

An Action : are any physical interactions with objects or characters. Action influence marks affect the player’s ability to gain insight, items, or pass checks in specific scenes.



Third eye opening is a WIP feature and supposedly a powerful ability to perform
to enter a 'Astral plane'

allows the player to enter the Astral plane, where all that is hidden is revealed. In addition to giving the player access to new areas and triggering certain story events, it allows the player to have full insight for the duration. The player’s psyche drains heavily second by second as the player stays within, however; they’re encouraged to use it wisely, as it’s a limited resource.






Items in the game fall under four categories:

Consumables are items the player can use to manipulate their psyche or add an influence mark. Potions last for the duration of a given quest. Food lasts over a period of time.

Ingredients are items used or required for crafting consumables at a brewing pot or for performing rituals.

Charms are wearable influence marks that last as long as they’re equipped.

Outfits are wearable items that change the player’s look and can additionally add influence marks or allow infiltration.





Through wearing these disguises, the player can access off-limits areas, new dialogue options, and stealth mechanics.





'Kuman-Thong' a thai folklore craft, is SW3EO’s QTE feature.

If the player has accrued enough Kuman-Thong Charms, they will be prompted with a quicktime event to perform special actions or choices; throughout your stay, Kuman-thong will be acting as a clairvoyant, providing unique options that ignore the player’s sense effectiveness, psyche or insight, as well as providing foretelling options which may be absurd but also may be invaluable for future incidents.

The player’s Kuman-Thong morphs and changes depending on the player’s choices, and will grant different abilities depending on the muses that drive them.

Music and Sound by @Spellbang




Your choices in conversation is a way to result in branching.
Moreover, choosing your tone will affect the character 'value' and 'relationship'

Certain NPCs in the game can accompany the player through certain quest missions; these companions are key to the narrative and each of them has variable value and relationship scores that provide perks and affect the direction of the story:

Value: Direct influence the player has on the companion, allowing the player to challenge their beliefs and more strongly influence their decisions. Player choice of words and actions, in addition to quest outcomes, can influence this metric.

Relationship: The companion’s fondness and trust for the player. Better relationship values offer side quests and increase the character’s loyalty.
