About This 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.

The game is about a photographer who had a car accident which put her in a trauma. She is re-evaluating her life by looking back at her past experiences (which has been recorded through photography) and re-examining everything that she has been through, questioning her feelings and decisions and trying to make a more clear vision of what kind of person she is. There are some symbolism here and there but it's mostly understandable. It's probably the most atmospheric game I have ever played. I believe that it only fits mature audience as they can relate to some of the experiences/thoughts the game offers them. Even better; Trauma will fit non gamers who are a little bit philosophical.
Personally; I love this game. It's been about 6 months since I played it and it came to my mind when I went to bed yesterday (this is how much it's memorable for me) so I decided to play it a little more today and give it a thumbs up

Really nice game.

If you want something different and special, the game that will hold in your memory for a while, that is the game you want to play.

A simple game about focusing images. Not much to say, this game is great for relaxing at the end of a long day.

A very interesting puzzle game with a very interesting concept. But my complaint is more or less the story. Its about a woman and her family (or friends?) who go on a night drive but end up in a car accident. The woman and her friends get hospitalized and as the woman, you wander through her trippy memories trying to solve the puzzles and as you complete the puzzles, you gradually get cutscenes of her recovery in the hospital. But once you reach the end of the game however, you see her discharged from the hospital and return home and close the door. But what bothers me is...What about the other people? What happened to them? Did they die and leave an impact on her? There was not a single mention of what happened to them.

Pros:

Interesting concept and deep artwork if you think of it that way

Good puzzles that will make you think for quite a while as you attempt to solve them

Cool intro and nice trippy theme song

Cons:

Story makes no sense

This game has no replay value so once you play it, you'll likely never go back to it.



Get this game when it has a cheap discount or watch a walkthrough. Its really a one-off.


This was my first review too so I hope I did good ^^
