Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Sunday 04 January 2015
Trauma (2011) is a 1st-person indie game consisting of photorealistic images. A girl recovers in hospital from a car accident. She’s in a dreamlike state. In four different dreams you wander around the lonely streets at night, find polaroids of her memories, perform tasks, and interact with your environment by drawing symbols on the screen. Each dream has three possible endings.
My dislike of the pixelated retro style and preference for FMV makes me biased, I admit it. But I found it an interesting, novel experience. Great atmosphere too.
I had only heard of this game previously, now you made me want to play it.
The human race is doomed to progress.
Never heard of this game before. Seems really nice though!
I loved the atmosphere. Very surreal and dreamlike. A little on the casual side for me, but considering it was a university student’s project I’m forgiving.
It the category artsy really small games this one didn’t click much with me. The pictures and mood were kind of nice but I thought something like Dear Esther was more successful.
I enjoyed playing Trauma. I liked the mood and the puzzles.
Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.
