Empathy patch 1.0.3 - New game mode!



Hi everyone!

As we continue to read your valuable feedback on the game, it has become clear that some of you wish to experience the story of Empathy without any kind of in-between interactions. In order to address that, today's patch introduced a new game mode which allows players to opt out of the syncing puzzle mechanic to focus on story. The new game mode is called "Memento mode" and can be found in the settings menu.

We are also introducing a Field of View setting and ability to disable the persistent cross-hair in-game (it will only pop up when mousing over interactive objects).

We continue listening to your feedback, if you have any questions or issues, don't hesitate to contact us here on the forums.

We hope you enjoy the update and stay tuned for more.

Cheers,

Surtur

About This Game

Blinking against the light, you step into a world that seems broken apart, almost dead… Yet there is a pulse, beating faintly in the back of your mind. What has happened in this place, where the people are gone and their memories echo in the silence? Where emotions appear as physical things, hanging in the air, just waiting for someone to reach out…

Empathy: Path of Whispers is an atmospheric and story-driven adventure game where you explore a seemingly abandoned world through the emotions and memories of the people who once inhabited it, trying to restore the world’s lost balance as you journey through its past. With a strong focus on storytelling and exploration, players will find themselves in a surreal world created from people’s emotions and memories, which can be manipulated and explored. Those lost memories are the key to rebuilding the crumbling world back to its former state, discovering its mysterious past and halting an impending apocalypse. Through its innovative narrative mechanics the game will challenge the player to explore and gain an understanding of the weird world they are traveling through.

Game Features:
  • Discover and explore other peoples’ memories in order to change the world around you, solve puzzles and access new areas.
  • Traverse a strange world and uncover what triggered the silent apocalypse.
  • Follow a narrative as it develops, interwoven with your exploration.
  • Experience the story through multiple first person perspectives and use your wits to piece the events together.
