Sobre este jogo

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.

Trauma is a very artsy puzzle-adventure kind of game.

Graphics 6 of 10
The graphics consist mainly of photo-shots of urban everyday areas. I’d say they're okayish. For an indie game developer that's ok. Still feels old school.

Gameplay 5 of 10
You navigate through the photo-shots and you manipulate various objects with gestures /signs. Think of the swiping movements you do with your fingers on a smartphone...but here you do it with a mouse. Which is in no way intuitive or comfortable. It’s meant to be an adventure game, but it's not very adventurous to me. The areas where you are allowed to do something are sparse. And so you click your way through the artsy still photo-shots...while a tragic little story unfolds. On the plus side the atmosphere is quite nice and feels dreamlike and obscure at times.

Sound 6 of 10
The voice of the actress is quite well done. Music is almost nonexistent.

Final verdict
I would not recommend this game. Although it has its moments and the story is bittersweet, the gameplay just doesn't feel right, the puzzles are way too easy and it's extremely short and can be accomplished in like 45 minutes

TRAUMA is seriously cool. The opening cinematic is one of the first in a long time which has actually caught my eye and kept my interest; the subsequent gameplay is equally fascinating if not a bit conceptual.

I wouldn’t know where to begin when trying to classify this game. I guess the base is a point and click adventure, but there are heavy influences from those dreadful hidden object games. Your “movement” is accomplished by clicking where you want to look which takes a simulated photograph centered on your cursor and reveals the world only at that point. If that sounds confusing and befuddling I completely understand. It is very hard to find the right way to explain the mechanics and if you try out the game you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about.

The story is fairly short but I believe the main point behind the game is to be an art piece of sorts and to present this unique method of player interaction.While I wouldn’t be surprised if TRAUMA was largely a hit or miss with people, I think I still would recommend it to a friend looking for something interesting to try out one afternoon.

Yea-
*Nice graphics
*New take on point and click games by using mouse gestures to solve the puzzles

Meh-
*Very short
*Story is forgetable
*Way too easy

Bleh-
*While easy, you can become stumpped a few times and will just randomly use your gestures every where until you can procede
*Just boring

Verdict- Skip it at the list price of $7, might be worth it to give it a run in a super cheap bundle
