It's probably better to think of Trauma as an interactive story rather than a game. It follows a young woman recovering from an accident and sorting through her memories, feelings, and worries. The player explores an environment made of photographs and draws symbols on the screen to advance the story and find hidden objects. It's pretty simple, but I thought the story was fascinating and the presentation was very new and cool, especially with the effective music and narration.
I do want to note that I've played through the entire thing twice (only once through Steam though) and each time I somehow missed the opening cinematic that explains the protagonist's accident. If you miss it too I recommend looking for it in the video gallery as soon as you can since the game is kinda confusing without that context. And if you find all the hidden photographs you get a slightly different ending cinematic. It's a subtle difference but I found it a fascinating addition to the story.
Though I liked this game and would recommend it if you want to try something story-based and experimental, it is VERY short and probably best acquired during a sale or Humble Bundle.
