Sobre este jogo

How long has it been? A man sits in a distant getaway cabin waiting for his wife Serena. Where is she? Things in the cabin evoke memories, and the husband comes to a disturbing realization...

This short point-and-click adventure is the result of a massive collaborative effort between dozens of fans and designers of adventure games. Rallying to support the venerable genre and its passionate community, these developers have brought together a grim and highly detailed horror story in what is the largest, possibly even the first, game project of its kind. Talents include crew from renowned indie companies Senscape, CBE Software, Infamous Quests, Digital Media Workshop, Guys from Andromeda, and many more.

Features

  • A (twisted) love letter to the adventure game community
  • Over 40 contributors provided their wit and talents
  • Extremely depressive mood, and a bit of fear here and there
  • A haunting story that will challenge your intellect (and temerity)
  • Amazing voice acting by legendary adventure game designer Josh Mandel
  • More awesome acting by popular video producer Pushing Up Roses
  • Yet another overwhelmingly astonishing surprise cameo by an ex-designer from Sierra!
  • Did we mention the gut-wrenching atmosphere?

Fun creative little suspense story. Pretty unique (though reminds me of old Myst) but hard to explain without giving away spoilers. It's free and takes about an hour so no reason not to give it a try. I'm interested to see more from this company.

Very nice (and quick) game. Great atmosphere. I played it alone, at night, lights off... it really is something.

The lack of a menu ruined this game for me. Although the game is billed as "short," I didn't have the time or desire to play through to the end in one go. After hitting Escape to quit and restarting from the beginning twice, I just gave up on it. I realize it's a free game, but a Save feature would have improved the experience immensely.

I'm not sure what to say about this. Mainly bc after playing I still have no idea what happened. This isn't to say the game didn't give allusion to such an idea as an explination, but rather I don't have the computing power in my brain to understand. Not much was explained in the story except mommy and daddy please stop fighting.

There was alotta pacing aroung the room. I wish the room was bigger.

Would prolly recommend if you like Myst style click em mystery games.

How do I begin to describe Serena? You start off in a cabin in the middle of nowhere as a man trying to remember his wife. It's a simple point and click, which admittedly does get frustrating as there are only certain things to click in a certain order that further the story. Overall the story is interesting and the graphics are fair. The voice acting for Serena is a lacking on the emotion. The ending left me with a few loose ends, and that's the thing I hate the most.
I played this game because I am a fan of indie horror, and while this game is definitely indie, it's not very much horror. The one scare (for a lack of a better word) was very much predicatable from the beginning and is experienced just when you think you've figured everything out.
Serena is a good game, for a free one. You get what you pay for. Overall I do recommend playing at least once, but it probably won't take long to beat.
I would probably call Serena a mystery game, and it's a good plot line with many twists.

I was in a patient, chill mood just looking for a bit of entertainment when I stumbled across this. It seemed like what I was looking for - something very simple without being boring. I got frustrated a bit since I wasn't being intuitive about the next step, and it ended up taking me about 1.25 hours; however, I found the spoken lines interesting, and it was overall enjoyable. I was pleased with the ending.

I can't bring myself to recommend this even as a free game.

It's all about the "story", there's nothing else in it of value that could make it a worthwhile experience. And the story is uninspiring and dull with the climax telegraphed so far ahead that it almost wasn't worth playing the full 30 minutes it took to get to the end.

Go read a good book instead.

You never know what'll stick or what won't. This stuck about as well as some pre-chewed bubblegum from the bottom of someone's shoe.

The important thing is though... it does stick. I did enjoy this game.

At first, I assumed that Serena was just a simple game (similar to Home is Where One Starts), with little insight into a person's relation to a location after their return. And, holy hell, are there some unique insights in this couple's relationship! I won't spoil anything, but it gets dark.

It is very similar to Fingerbones. No, wait. Sorry. Fingerbones is very similar to Serena, where you navigate a room, find more clues to what happened in a specific pattern, and an ultimate dark reveal is made at the end.

However, I actually prefer Fingerbones. Serena doesn't originally start as a "horror" game, as it describes itself... but it does get more uncomfortable and creepy as you learn more facts, then the character's memories shift from kind, to depressed, to angry... but then it jumps to the big scare... I feel like there could've been a moment of insanity after the big reveal. Like a change in the photograph, or something.

That and the voice acting sucks in my opinion. None of the voice actors sounded convincing. The writing was good, as was the atmosphere. But the main character and his wife weren't good.

Serena is still worth a playthrough. It's short, emotionally satisfying, and it looks very nice. I'm gonna give it a 6/10. Despite what flaws it has, it's still an enjoyable little project.

Serena was a very short game. While it is complete, it's hard to get the right objects for the story line. So you wind up getting the same dialog over and over and over again. And while repetitious, the story line is decent. The ending, however, I'm still not sure how I feel about it's abruptness. I spend an hour pointing/clicking learning about their relationship and it ends like a soap opera? Otherwise, game play and character development is good. Thanks for the game.

Not my type of game, very boring, but if you like to sit down and click on everything and listen to him tell a story about the thing you click on then this game is perfect for you.

while the atmosphere that this game produces is great, and the detail and story are well put together, i can not say that i enjoyed it. For me i did get invested in the main characters emotions, however this is not a game that i think you are meant to 'enjoy'. If you like feeling invested emotionally in a game this may be for you, but be aware that this game is literally depressing vs being a bad game.

GOOD. Short, confusing, upsetting, wild from start to finish. It was good, and I enjoyed the hell out of it, except for one part which I had a hard time looking at. If they came out with a series of mystery games in this style, I would just throw my money at it.

i like this game. tho i think its hard starting trying to figure out what your looking for. also would love to have seen a save menu, since i hit escape and i had to start from the beginning. this game did for me have issues with black screen on start on windows hit "alt+tab" and then go back and it glitched the screen into working on start up also somtimes when clicking on the picture frame of poem it would black screen out just do the same thing.. the story line i loved it was very dark and nicely written... i recomend for the story line....... the black screening tho i almost quit im hoping my short fix will help others.. so there game play is a little easier if they have this problem..

Serena is a great point and click adventure story that I'm happy to have downloaded for free. Execellent work on the story, voice acting, mood setting atmosphere, music and sounds that creep in just at the right moment... The game is very short and sweet, and quite frankly easy to complete on your first try, but I may have missed a few extra sceens and narration. Because of this, I'll have to play through it again and see what all I missed the first time, so I guess you could say there's some replayability factor.

If you have the 317mb or so of free disc space to download the game, and you'd like point and click adventure story with the sad/creepy and confined mood resembling that of Silent Hill 4: The Room (when you're in The Room anyways...), then I highly recomend downloading Serena and playing through it at least once.

Great job to the crew that created Serena! Make more stuff! Free stuff! :)

Jogo bastante simples e que não leva nem uma hora para concluir.
Não há como reclamar de um jogo que é grátis e ainda traz uma história um tanto interessante.
O suspense é bastante leve e pode ser que o final te surpreenda.
Valeu a experiência.

A dublagem do jogo é ótima e umas três ou quatro vezes pensei "Vai acontecer isso... " e aí aconteceu exatamente o contrário. Porém, bem curtinho o jogo. Fiquei meio "WTF?!" quando finalizei, mas num geral vale a pena porque o personagem foi bem trabalhado nos textos distribuídos pela cabana e pelas próprias reações.

Um dos point - and - click mais interessantes e gratuitos na Steam. O jogo é baseado em uma história romantica de um casal muito apaixonado, porem o marido esta sofrendo de amnésia e ele tem que descobrir o porque que a sua amada nunca chega ao encontro dele. O jogo contém uma atmosfera maravilhosa e que da a oportunidade de se aprofundar nos pensamentos do marido e os mistérios nessa relação. Muito mais do que recomendado

Nota 10\10

What is Serena?
Serena is point and click game in the traditional sense. The game involves around the main character looking at objects and telling and remenbering the memories of the life with his wife Serena while he waits for her return to the cabin they call home.

Is this an horror game with spocky creatures or ghosts that jumpscare you?
The answer is no, the game does have its dark moments but there is no monsters or anything like that.

Story
Every object and furniture in the house has a story in their relationship which makes the story quite immersive. Some of them change in appearance according to what the main character has remenbered and is feeling.

Gameplay
In this game you click multiple times in the various objects to get the various pieces of dialogue. Once you make a breakthough in the plot the ambience changes and the objects will then have new dialogue and some objects change their appearance along with the enviroment.

The game doesn't tell you but there is only two keyboard keys you can use: SPACE allows you to highlight all the clickable objects and ESC that makes you quit the game if you press it twice.
The game doesn't have a save feature but it can be forgiven since it is just an hour long.

Voice Acting
The voice acting in this game is pretty good. I was expecting something really bad since it is a free indie game and all but I was suprised for its quality.

Conclusion
This is a pretty good point and click game that delivers it's story quite well though the enviroment and the dialogue.

I really, REALLY liked it. The atmosphere and soundtrack were top-notch and the story, at first, seemed really cliche, but towards the end got really cool, pulling out a completely unexpected ending that, get this, actually makes sense! It's easy to tell the makers of this game wanted to do something completely fresh and original and they succeeded brilliantly. It, at first, gives off a nostalgic, gentle feel that quickly turns to uneasiness and discomfort, then to a dark tenseness that envelops the setting. The color scheme remains the same throughout, but as atmosphere builds and soundtracks darken, everything looks more oppressive, dark, and tense. Very well done. This is one of the few games that really touches me emotionally: seeing something beautiful and ideal wither and die before your eyes is one of the hardest things to see for me and people who find that emotionally depressing or at least touching will very much appreciate this. Another thing I noticed: items you look at in the beginning take on a completely different meaning in the end, which is something I really enjoyed. Very very very good. Recommended completely to anyone who appreciates a good story, a good atmosphere, or a hella good soundtrack, even if it isn't the longest thing in the world...

10/10 I won't get married. Ever.

A very nice psycho-thriller game made by a bunch of people that does its job remarkably; it's job being keeping you in different states of mind (sad, agitated, nostalgic, reflective about your past\current love stories), then scaring you a little, then dropping the bomb and finally twist your mind.
A great piece of art in the videogame universe that will probably leave a scar in your thoughts.
The graphic is nothing impressive;it's what you could expect from an indie company. Nevertheless it's not bad.
Voice acting is quite convincing.
But it's in the script that this game really shines.

The only con is could find in this game is that some clues that could have helped the ending were omitted (or maybe I just didn't find them: for example: the accomplice was never introduced, the greedy side of someone was mentioned but could have been emphasized

Looking forward for more games from Senscape.

Selena is an interesting short story presented in an interactive 'game' format, for free, here on Steam. It's very well done, has great graphics, an interesting story, and is good for a playthrough. I would suggest it only for adults as it has some mature content and theme. For those interested in engaging in a story playthrough in the weird fiction genre, then I can gladly recommend Selena.

I honestly went back and forth on whether to recommend this. Considering it's free, I guess there isn't really a lot to complain about. To get straight to the point, the voice acting and controls were both subpar, kind of like you'd expect from a free game, and the story just wasn't there to pick up the slack. I say play this game if you're really, really bored. But if you have absolutely anything else you could be doing with your time right now, do that instead.

Don't accidentally quit the game! Happened a few times when I played it. The game itself was beautiful, but I was always afraid to look at certain arts on the wall. The atmosphere got more and more intense as you go through it, but the twists were definitely worth it. Double twists at the end, to be exact. I am now on a lookout for more games from this group of developers!

Recommend? Definitely. Give it a try!
