"Lou, a young man in his early twenties, is on his daily commute in the train. He is soon after breath-taken by the sight of a young woman. Lou wishes to talk to her but his self-doubt holds him back. He is torn in two and gets lost in his inner world."
In this poetic art/adventure game you are in the pursuit of courage and try to mend your conflicting self. A journey through your subconscious world makes you deal with the fears and doubts that hinders you from talking to the stranger. Glimpses of your own courage leads you through dark forestry, dense fog and empty spaces where you are faced with the difficulties that prevents you from talking to the woman on the train.

Such a Lovely Experience
This game was downright lovely. The simple quality and art style of the models is pleasing to the eye, yet works so well in the small 3D environments we explore, and the sound design is by far the best I’ve ever witnessed in a mobile game. The different sections of the game worked well independently, and the simple UI giving you one single word to explain a new game mechanic was expertly implemented.
When applied individually, every section is a marvel on its own, but when received as a whole, it becomes a much fuller experience. The LOOK section showed me the importance of visuals, the LISTEN section helped me immerse myself in the excellent sound design, and the SPEAK section utilized a very interesting game mechanic. However, LOOK helped me pay attention to the visuals, or lack thereof, in LISTEN, and LISTEN helped me see the subtle nuances and changes in the orchestration or SPEAK. The game effortlessly and expertly utilizes its game mechanics to tell a story in a unique way, and was very charming while doing so. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quick, fun, and simple yet complex game.
The first scene was slow, but as I came to understand that there was an actual story behind all of this. This game requires your full attention, I was expecting a horror jump scare game but I was pleasantly surprised at the lack of jump scares and horror. My favorite part of the game was the second part, having to listen to your surroundings in order to find the phone tree, the gramophone, and the beautiful voice. I thoroughly enjoyed the soft voice of the woman singing, i was very relaxed through the entire game. The controls are simple, I wouldn’t change a thing about the game, the ending was amazing, you could follow the tracks given, or you could trudge slowly through the black unlit Abyss, I watched the end credits and the very last line was and ‘in memory’ I don’t remember for who but this was a very sweet thing to do. I fully recommend this game, it is something I would play over and over trying to deeper understand the meaning behind the game.
Short but good.
This game inspired me and I’m sure inspired other people too. The visual effects and graphical organizing were phenomenal for a free mobile game. I certainly hope that other people would try this. It has a beautiful storyline and setting. The reason behind going on this wondrous adventure is adorable. Facing every one of your fears on this mysterious journey through your own mind. All this to build up the courage to talk to a girl. The only thing I would tell the developers to work on is making the story longer. The game is great, but the shortness is the only flaw. All I’m saying is for you to take time and extend the story, or even change it entirely. Even if it does require you to charge in app purchases. I rarely write reviews. That’s how good this game is. I sincerely hope that you come out with a sequel.
