“Among the top 5 of unmissable indie video games.”

“This first taste of Freud's Bones has managed to entertain us with its open willingness to break the Fourth Wall, the constant quoting and the quality of the writing.”

“Fortuna Imperatore is a young graduate who chose the difficult path of the self-taught game designer to tell the story of an outsider.”

About This Game

Freud's Bones is a surreal and obscure adventure on the study of psychoanalysis and Sigmund Freud.
Immerse yourself in Freud's mind and discover the mystery behind his crisis.
Investigate ominous Egyptian artifacts, existential crises and become a petulant inner voice.

Psychoanalyse Freud's patients and explore their unconscious to discover their hidden dreams, their obsessions and the causes of their deepest sexual disturbances.
Thanks to your help they could finally heal… though if not careful, your mistakes could lead them into a whirlwind of pain.

Freud is being torn apart by a profound existential crisis. Exiled from psychoanalytic society, embroiled in controversial relationships, he lives every day in anguish, despite mending the souls of his patients, his own consciousness is unstable. In the night Egyptian artifacts in his office come to life, showing him threatening and disturbing philosophical puzzles and driving him to the brink of insanity.

Live Freud's everyday life by accompanying him in his routine: read the letters he receives every morning, give him a few moments of relaxation to smoke his beloved cigars or to drink a sip of cocaine. Accompany him to the Eckman Café to meet patrons who could finance his projects or go on the nocturnal walks among the palaces in Vienna.

Fortuna "Axel Fox" Imperatore worked in a cleaning company while completing her studies in Psychology and Philosophy. Obsessed by her love of video games and psychoanalysis, she decided to put her mantra into practice: "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish" and combine her greatest passions into a project, Freud's Bones, which was born from a rickety old laptop and through a myriad of adventures. In 2020, the Kickstarter campaign tripled its goal, raising €15,500 from all over the world. Alone, and equipped with a sense of stubbornness and craziness, Fortuna quit her job, invested her salary in the project and dedicated her body and soul to her first work.
