About This Game

The Man Came Around is a survival game filled with thorny moral dilemmas.
Occida, one of the world's most powerful nations, is shaken by mass protests. As the fight between The Many -an activist organization- and the government intensifies, the protesters face brutal repression.

Play five citizens trying to leave this mess.
Your only hope is to cross the Northern Border, a heavily guarded fence lost in the mountains.

You'll face grave dangers during your journey, from harsh elements to corrupt cops. Manage your scarce resources, take tough decisions, and make the best of your group's abilities to escape this lethal maze.

But remember: sometimes staying alive is not the same as doing the right thing… Will you sacrifice your principles to survive?

Moral Choices: Sacrificing a member, making shady deals, or letting other innocents die to survive ... You'll face tough decisions during the adventure.

Interactive Narration: Let your choices change the story. Replay to discover all possibilities.

Group Survival: Permadeath for the characters! It's up to you to finish the game with five or only one survivor.

Trauma System: Stress and guilt will impact your characters.

Replayability: Each play-through will be different, thanks to some added randomness.

Unique Art Style: The hand-drawn graphics are inspired by minimalism and speed painting.
