TRAUMA is an award-winning interactive experience. It has been created by two independent game developers from Germany. We have no office, no publisher and no funding.
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. TRAUMA lets you experience those dreams in an interactive way, reminiscent of Point-and-Click Adventure Games. It expands this established formula by introducing a gesture-based interface, 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 1.5
• Completely new gesture recognizer with a more tolerance.
• Massively improve graphics engine that consumes less battery life.
• Smaller memory footprint
• iOS 7 fine tuning
Fun, quirky hidden object "game".
This "game" is available on the web at their website, but the app lets you take it with you, and performs better I've found. Less time waiting for things to load.
As for game play, you view four brief, surreal dreamscapes looking for one of several endings, which when you find you're rewarded with a brief, cut scene with a dejected woman slowly recovering in a hospital, talking with her doctor. There's no real action anywhere in the game, and you navigate through the lens of a D-SLR type camera.
It's an odd indie game, but worth checking out if not to see an interesting story line develop, or see how they managed the interface, then for the music and ambience.
It's definitely interesting.
