“THE LUCID DREAMS OF CYLNE : Cylne is a particularly difficult game to describe. [...] It renders the most basic concept of interaction unfamiliar by dropping the player in a world with its own rules, with its own sense of twisted dream-logic.”
70/100 – Kill Screen, by David Chandler

Description :

Cylne is a first person surreal exploration game, in the form of a visual poems collection. Choose a chapter to explore and feel unreal worlds filled with environmental enigmas, surprises and some platforming. Surrounded by a dark halo, dive into ethereal ambience to find meaning...

These poem-like worlds are linked together by a common thread. Explore strange
places - from ancient architectures to abstract and wide stripped landscapes - to find it. You may also encounter strange life forms.

The only thing you know about your avatar is this misty halo. Cylne doesn't impose narrative elements.

But at the end of this journey, you will be faced with a choice that echoes your experience and might unlock some mysteries. In a way, the game is about self revelation.

The game contains flashing and bright lights which may not be suitable for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
