About the Game

TRAUMA tells a story of a young woman who survives a car accident. Recovering at the hospital, she has dreams that shed light on different aspects of her identity - such as the way she deals with the loss of her parents. TRAUMA lets you experience those dreams in an interactive way, reminiscent of Point-and-Click Adventure Games. It builds upon this established formula by introducing a gesture-based interface, real-time 3D technology for dynamic level layouts, unique photographic visuals and a level design philosophy that focuses on creating a rich experience rather than an elaborate puzzle challenge. Combined with the unconventional story, it is aimed to be a compact and deep game for a literate and mature audience.

Tantalizing.

I keep coming back to it. Not a game you play for hours at a time, nor one with loud action. This is an atmospheric puzzler. It's really quite wonderful.

Good short game. Highly unusual and high concept as you navigate a series of dreams via photographs. It's non-linear--you gain skills from one level to find new items and "endings" in other levels. You can easily beat it 100% in 2-3 hours. It has just enough challenge to keep your attention. Due to the length, I'd grab it on a sale.

Less related, kudos to the developers for the unorthodox lead character. It's a non-traditional role that was interesting to assume.

Good for a point click Flash Based adventure game, Like the Photography and FMV, you don't see that too much anymore, but in all I would expect more.

Reminds me of a visual art project than a traditional game. Because it seems more like an art student's portfolio, I wouldn't pay more than a couple of bucks for this game, like $2 max.

PROS:
Trippy gameplay
Musical ambience
Dark atmosphere

CONS:
short (barely over an hour)
no save option

5/10 good game, but short, should be free.

Photography, movie, poetry (why not?)...
Trauma is a very different and interesting game, where you travel through four dreams of a girl in a hospital, after a road accident. You travel by clicks and mouse gestures - like road lights in motion - in still worlds/dreams made of photographs and short cinematics.

You're are searching for one of the four ways to leave these dreams, one uncovering part of a cinematic of that girl at the hospital, three more additional ends for each dream, and a collection of polaroid photos, uncovering tips and little insights for the girl's past and thoughts.

It is not a great story, but the mood is mysterious and cool.
Created on Flash for web, so you can't expect great graphics resolutions and resources, but it still an unique experience.
