Description

To Leave is the first game being developed by Freaky Creations. By using his treasured flying Door, young Harm struggles to leave behind his sophisticated life in the ravenous megalopolis of Pyre, who now in turn seeks to devour him.

History

Harm's Door is very delicate! Even the slightest touch against seemingly harmless things and, whoosh! the Door will burst open, absorbing Harm and setting him back, sometimes to the loss of all progress, and right into the very life he fought so hard to leave behind. Still, Harm will always keep trying to leave, for memory of his life in Pyre will keep propelling him to start again, until he's able to overcome adversity, and finally break free...

Features

  • The game has around 80 different sections.
  • Each section of the game has unique aesthetics, hand painted and in a really meticulous way.
  • The music has been composed specifically for the game, and each and every experience that we want to transmit is designed by our musical team.
  • Innovative utilization of the flying mechanic: Harm uses his Door to transport himself, but it can only move upwards, which means that the player mist learn how to use gravity in his/her favor to solve puzzles in the game. .
  • The game uses Dynamic Storytelling: Each element of the game has been created and assembled in a way in which narrates, in a symbolic way, different experiences to the player, reinforcing the holistic theme of the game.
  • Each puzzle is unique and for their resolution the player must user his/her physical and mental agility skills. Also resolving each puzzle, will reveal part of the present narrative of the game
