About the Experience:

A game without meaning.
A game nobody should play.

A clock, a piano and a girl. What do they all mean?
What is meaning, anyway? What has meaning? Do you have one? A path, a goal, something determined, pre-determined? A light to follow?

Discover a world filled with fear and loneliness. A world where despair breathes and hope dies. A world about you, about us. A world about humanity and about life.

If you had a choice, which one would you make?

There is more to this experience than meets the eye. You have been warned.

About the Development:

This is a walking simulator I've been working on here and there for the past year or so. I wanted to find a way to express how I felt in my darkest times, and I couldn't find any better than an interactive experience. This is a passion project. It is also my first attempt at making a game by myself from scratch.

The Experience should take between 45min to one hour to complete.

This game is not for everyone. This is a tale with little meaning and little hope, born from months of uncertainty and dark thoughts. The gameplay is close to non-existent, and the graphics are little more than boxes and shadows.

Hopefully, this game will open doors for people who need it, give a good scare for those who so desire, and make some others think.

Please leave a rating, comment or share the word around if you enjoyed this experience!


Warnings:

If you suffer from depression, anxiety or have a fragile heart, you may want to avoid playing this game.

Since I was working alone on this game, and even though I tested it countless times, bugs are entirely possible. If you encounter one, please contact me, and I'll try to fix it asap!

This game will manipulate some files and gather some data from your computer. If you do not feel comfortable with this, do not play it.

Always follow the light.
And never look back.
