Anamorphine is an upcoming game that tells a story about the effects of trauma in a strikingly visual way. Its creators promise no dialogue or direct interactions — just exploration in strange, fascinating environments like the ones in this recent teaser.
According to its creators at Artifact 5, its a game about confronting the past, or letting it consume you.
Tyler, a young man in post-traumatic denial, revisits a succession of milestones that define his relationship with his wife Elena, who falls victim to an accident that robs her of her livelihood and emotional outlet. Tyler’s mental turmoil warps his past as he struggles to come to terms with his guilt and inability to help Elena when she quietly slips into depression.
Intrigued? Anamorphine won’t be available until later this year, but you can check out its Steam page and wishlist it now.
