TRAUMA tells a story of a young woman who survives a car accident. Recovering at the hospital, she has dreams that shed light on different aspects of her identity - such as the way she deals with the loss of her parents. TRAUMA lets you experience those dreams in an interactive way, reminiscent of Point-and-Click Adventure Games. It builds upon this established formula by introducing a gesture-based interface, real-time 3D technology for dynamic level layouts, unique photographic visuals and a level design philosophy that focuses on creating a rich experience rather than an elaborate puzzle challenge. Combined with the unconventional story, it is aimed to be a compact and deep game for a literate and mature audience.
What's New in Version 3
Improved texture smoothing.
A beautiful, dream-like game, but way too short. It needs to have several levels beyond what it now contains. Alternate endings are not much worth scavenging after. This was very enjoyable and fascinating, but too short a ride for the price. I look forward to this same company putting together a much longer and deeper story in the same vein.
Not for me
This is a very strange game. I don't really get it and there are no hints or directions. Not worth the price. They should have a free test game.
