About This Game

A mother and her child are trying desperately to find shelter in order to survive harsh conditions. A tragic event makes them come together more than ever. On top of everything, their only way to travel breaks down.

In HELPLESS, take the role of a kid and explore a decaying land where the sun ruined civilization as we know it. Find abandoned places and scavenge them for items in order to make sense of the world you’re in. All the help you need during this perilous trip might come to you in unexpected forms.

Find items and different locations to understand your surroundings.

Cover yourself from the dangers of the sun and carefully manage your moves.

Share your findings with your mom by interacting with her and get better knowledge about your family with the support of a new friend.

Look at the world around you with dynamic cameras and a semi-realistic art style.
