“If you ask me, the scariest things are the ones that feel a little too real. Meta as fuck? You betcha.”
Kotaku

“Its computery chills looks pretty dang swish. Interesting, that, innit?”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Like a haunted house where the doors and hallways shift around you, Calendula is a slippery thing to inhabit.”

About This Game

What is Calendula?

Calendula is an experience. Calendula is a mystery. Calendula is a glass full of blood. Calendula is an experiment. Calendula is an atmospheric game. Calendula is a flower. Calendula is your deepest secret...

About Calendula

  • Calendula begins as a usual game... until it is not anymore.
  • The player's goal will be to unveil the mystery behind an apparently broken game, but it won't be easy.
  • Calendula's mechanics are entirely focused on the struggle of trying to start a game, exploring the limits of the 4th wall and breaking with conventions.
  • Calendula's aesthetics follows an increasing obscure atmosphere, plunging the player into a disturbing, thrilling experience.
  • The narrative is built within a labyrinth of metaphors and abstractions, ready to be unraveled.
  • Unlike other games, the player will feel as if things didn't work the way they should, similar to Twin Peaks' Red Room (David Lynch).
  • The player's journey goes from simple to complex, from bright to somber, from real to dreamlike.
  • To follow Calendula's path, the player will have to use his wit and think outside the box. In this case, a tiny oppressive box.

    Please, remember this: It is not your fault.
