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?

This game deserves to be paid. The graphics is great, music is AWESOME, the voice acting is great and so is the script, the gameplay needs more improvement but it's playable.
So I guess the story is a bit cliche but I was in a shock when it took a turn anyway because the script and acting are that awesome. It's of great quality.
The ending needs more polish though, it feels quite unfinished, part of the reason might be I got stuck, can't save game (why on earth no gamesave) and restart everything (which is pretty quick following the flowchart). The ending is partly expected, but the "surprise" part is really confusing.
Still, as story and atmosphere goes 5/5 recommend.

A quick but interesting game that walks you through the protagonists' gradual remembering of past events with his wife. Impressive amount of script and backstory! Enjoyable short game.

I would say this game needs a trigger warning for suicidal ideation, as well as the misogynistic way the main characters talks about his wife which could be offputting to some. While there was some good moments and interesting ideas, I feel as a whole the game didn't come together cohesively. The story is a little cliche and I worked out the big twist about a quarter of the way through. While there is nothing wrong with treading along tropes, they are popular tropes for a reason they could have thrown in a little surprise somewhere. Serena didn't do that and it felt like too much text for every item inspected. There were points where I had lost track of what I had clicked on that round so was left just going round and round clicking randomly to progress rather than the smooth story progression you'd want for something like this.

The graphics were nice and the look of the game was great, especially for a short game, but the story lets it down. Ok to play for an hour when you're bored, but not really entertaining or gripping enough for anything else.

So...The game was nice.Beautifull artwork and great voice acting steal the show.The way the story begins and the way it progresses is quite nice and it took me by surprise.The ending though was a bit of a dissapointment to me.I had it figured out somewhat from the beginning I was sure that there was a hidden dead body in the armoire,I just didn't know whose it was.What's more, I didn't quite understand the reason she killed him.He didn't have any money so she could get insurance or whatnot.

Since it's free I do recommend the game,because it's a fun experience overall.

this game has an incredible story and i really have to give props to the idea makers behind this. it takes awhile to get through but the story is worth the build up. you may think you know the secret but it throws you for a twist at the end.

A short psychological horror game, Serena takes place in one location and there are only a few items to interact with: this is not a game where you collect scotchtape and a cat to make a fake moustache. Instead, Serena explores the thoughts of an unnamed protagonist as he is thinking about his life with his wife Serena.

The game is short but can still become frustrating, as it isn't immediately clear what causes the story to progress. Once you figure out the rules of the game though, which for me came after maybe half an hour of exploring, the story goes to its ending quickly.

As a free game with good production values and a really interesting story, Serena earns a recommendation without question.
But the main takeaway from this game I have is that I would like to see a longer, fully realized game by the people behind this.

A psychological horror point&click game, Serena is actually one of those free indie games that are much better than you would expect them to be. The game is short, but it took a very smooth approach at storytelling, has nice graphics and quality of sound, and mainly - the wonderful atmosphere, one of the key points of which - the steady narration of the story. It would be nice to see this game growing into something bigger, extending the story and gameplay into a full-scale game. There are a few downturns (listed them lower), but the game isn't long enough for them to be significant. And yes, this is an absolute recommendation. Enjoy the game.

+ Good story
+ Good sound
+ Excellent artwork
+ Excellent narration
+ Atmosphere of a well-written book

- Sometimes can be a little confusing in terms of progressing.
- The game is a little buggy and it crushed for me a few times.
- Doesn't have the save option, so if you quit, you should start it all over again (but it is fairly short).

If you like story driven games then this is for you!
It is a nice little game which takes only about one hour of your life time, and it is worth the time.
it is a sad dark story that takes place in a cabin somewhere far from everything else.

Serena is a darkly disturbing, emotionally wrenching, severely affecting short little gem. It takes less than an hour to play through. After having played two or three times already, it's a game that is short in duration but stays long in memory. I very much enjoyed playing this game and look forward to playing more games by each of the contributing designers.

It is important to tell upfront that this is not a game in the common sense of the word, there is no real gameplay here. This is an interactive story, so people not interested in that can walk along.

The whole game takes place in a cabin lost in the woods, where you unfold the plot by exploring objects and opening furniture. The main character is deftly voiced, his emotions are convincingly genuine. There is no jump scares, loud sounds, and so on, the fear comes from the well crafted story and presentation. The game world might be small, but each items hold lots of memories, and as the plot advances, you see them in completely different lights.

The length of the game is perfect (roughly 1h30) for what it aims to achieve, and the pace consistantly ramps up in tension. The writing is descriptive, metaphoric and subjective. The emotional side is highly nuanced, and despite the length, you will feel conflicted several times concerning the characters and the situation it presents.

In short: a free game with the quality content you expect from a commercial product. Be aware this is a condensed experience focused solely on storytelling.

This is a game for people who enjoy exploring.
You play a man, alone in his cabin. He does remember that he used to live there with his wife, but apart from that, his memories are curiosly elusive. As you examine his posessions, slowly his memories of his wife and the life they shared start to come back.
I very much enjoyed this little game.
The gameplay mechanics are very simple: you walk around the single room of the cabin and examine everything you see.
There are usually multiple things he will remember for every single item, and the thoughts they will trigger in him also change over time, as do the parts of his past he focuses on.
While the story is not particularly original, I really liked the main character's writing and felt it easy to connect to him.
The ending also left me thinking, in a good way.
