Om detta spel

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?

Unnerving writing, ominous graphics, and a solid and unsettling conclusion.

That said, I did not like the way the game played, per se, though I understand the pace was necessary to ensure you heard the dialogue. But yes, totally worth...downloading for free.

This is definitely worth your time as far as free games go. I loved the art, atmosphere, and story. The voice acting was also very good!

Right off the bat this game is boring, the character's voice is lackluster (and how do you mispronounce words so simple?). Glad it was free because otherwise I'd be wanting my money back.

This game is not the best point and clilck game but it has more pros ten cons:

Pros:-The grapics are good
-the story is a mind♥♥♥♥
-the voice acting is pretty good actually

Cons:-the story isn't clear even after playing trough it
-that hand on the middle of the screen is just disguisting (to me)

Though short, I found this game to be fairly intriguing. That being said, there wasn't a lot of shock value to it, and the ending wasn't particularly stimulating, thought provoking, or emotionally engaging to me. I'd say it's worth a play as a freeware game, but don't suggest walking in with high expectations.

A fun and simple game with a great story. Voice acting from Josh Mendel is fantastic. Ignore silly reviews that give no reason for disliking the game. It is a cheap, short and fun little game to pass the afternoon that will give you all the feels you could want.

Moody, short adventure game. Sometimes the movement was a bit annoying / I didn't end up where I thought I would after a click and would end up having another go around the table, but that's minor.

You do need to want to piece a story together from bits slowly appearing. It was close to being too loose a narrative for me, but it the end I left satisfied. Give it a shot, if anything it probably won't feel like other titles in your collection.

It's an intriguing little psychological horror drama. Definitely should set aside to finish in one playthrough. Not the best in the genre but it definitely provided some interesting content. It's free so why not.

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.

Serena was a dark and creepy expierience for me.
No, it's not a bad game, but it hits you HARD at feels. I'm sure I won't forget what I've seen very easily. Even though I wish I would.
Just... just try it out if you want a strong story. But be warned, it's not going to leave you with pretty memories.
Good example of what a 1-hour long game can do to you.

Pros: +immersive at its best - maybe too immersive;
+ amazing storyline and plot twist;
+ did I mention the plot twist?

Neutral: +/- depends if you like this in a game, it is probable that you will not forget this game very soon. You may relate to its story in your life and you will remember this game;

Cons: - no replayability; most people uninstall right after finishing;

Personal rating: 85/100 - Great
