Dreamers, it’s finally here!
Enter the dream world of Ahnayro, where shadowy figures, terror, and the only possibility of salvation all lurk. Strange presences weave in and out of your mind as you journey into the darkest shadows of your dreams. Confront inner demons and lurking evils as you seek the truth, a truth found in between two worlds: the waking and the dreaming.

We’ve worked hard for over a year now on adding the complete depth and complexity that the dream world Ahnayro deserves. The dream fragment riddles act as rabbit holes, inviting you deeper into the mysteries of the dream world, while the narrative, soundtrack, and images act as breadcrumbs, showing you that you’re on the right path as you progress along your investigation.

We have made changes to Table 1 and Table 2 to deepen the immersion and to further connect the complexity of the puzzles with the overarching narrative. Join the dreamer as she navigates her dreams and tries to save herself from her own inner turmoil and illness.

As before, don’t forget to visit us on the forums to meet your fellow oneironauts and to discuss what you see beyond the veil of reality.

Table 2 Released!

Enter the depths of a new dream, and explore the dark world of Voodoo. Go deeper into the life of the dreamer as you uncover details of her waking life as well as her unconscious through transmedia storytelling accessible with the new Artifact gateway. Delve into the rituals, dolls, yellow death and theinvisible gods of Voodoo

We have worked for months on game elements which add significant depth to the experience of Ahnayro. We strongly believe these additions will increase the level of immersion in the game and make the puzzles more complex and rewarding. Our table 2 update gives you a preview of all we have been working on.

The Artifact is the game’s progression map. It serves as a navigation tool into the dream world and the waking realm, and shows you the connections between both in the protagonist’s story. The waking life of the dreamer unfolds through narrative transmedia (blogs, Tumblr, images, etc) and ARG puzzles. You will also encounter dream gates in the Artifact, which serve as both tests and sources of information for the walking realm. Passing through these gates will yield Steam achievements!

We have unlocked a limited number of the transmedia elements to test the effectiveness of the storytelling methods. We will adjust the techniques used according to your feedback and open the rest of the map upon release of the full game.

A second guardian spirit is introduced to you in Table 2, along with the theme of Voodoo. For this table, we have changed our approach to fragment riddles to create a clear sense of progression within each puzzle. These new fragments give you a starting point with the riddle and certain images, and the remaining images, text and the narration act as checkpoints, showing you that you are on the right path in your investigation.

We have also redone certain fragments in Table 1 to reflect this new puzzle design structure. We hope you find the new system helpful, and we look forward to hearing your feedback!

Don't forget to visit us on the forums to discuss these changes, meet your fellow oneironauts and get updates on the content to come in the full release!

About This Game

  • 50 (challenging) puzzles to explore
  • Deep Alternate Reality Game
  • Immersive audio narrative

Explore the twisted and troubling world of Ahnayro, where your dreams are haunted by mysterious figures.

From the creators of The Black Watchmen and the team behind The Secret World Alternate Reality Games comes Ahnayro, a narrative-driven immersive puzzle game which draws you into the dream world and surrounds you within an ethereal reality.

  • Digging deep into fascinating historical events, mysterious figures and bizarre subjects
  • Researching the hidden connections that lie beneath the surface
  • Exploring immersive, transmedia narratives
  • Advancing beyond the typical gaming experience
  • Meandering into unexplored and little understood areas of the human experience
  • Immersing yourself in strange, terrifying, and beautiful worlds
  • Negotiating the boundaries of what is real and what could be real
  • Gathering real-world facts and information to guide your way

You are gifted with the ability to look beyond the veil of reality, investigating a universe that opens up to you every night, haunting you, beckoning you to solve the mysteries within.

The life of the dreamer is in your hands, yet neither you nor she are in control of this magical world; you are at the mercy of mysterious entities flowing in and out of the darkness. Her only hope of salvation is to understand the symbolism of her fragmented visions and confront the evil that plagues her mind.

As in any dream, however, this new reality draws from the waking world, and understanding one necessitates understanding the other.

Discover the meaning of this obscured reality, unlocked only at night. Discover Ahnayro.

The dream world reveals itself in fragments. It is up to you to piece together information and discover the hidden meaning behind them. Through a series of research and logic-based puzzles that challenge your knowledge of real-world historical events, figures, art and mythology, you will slowly uncover the identities of those who haunt the dream world.

Explore the troubled life of the dreamer by day, and uncover the effects of her dark visions through a transmedia storytelling experience deeply rooted in Alternate Reality Game mechanics. Investigate a remote sleep clinic, their mysterious methods and the hidden world of oneironautic research.

  • Delve into the twisted logic of dreams through an engaging narrative integrated within the puzzles themselves.
  • Ethereal visual style, captivating narration and atmospheric original soundtrack from the composer of The Black Watchmen usher you into the unique world of Ahnayro.
  • Employ your knowledge of the real world—historical figures and events, science, established mythology, etc.—or seek it out on the web to discover the meaning behind the dreams.
  • Multilayered transmedia storytelling including fake websites, audio messages and bizarre videos hidden across the web
