New artstyle!
'The apocalypse has never looked so good'

Empathy is an adventure game where you play as a Child, guided through an abandoned world by a mysterious narrator. On your journey you will stumble upon snapshots of people who were living in the world before you, now only their thoughts remaining burned into the atmosphere in form of Shades. Being inspired by classical point and click adventure games Empathy takes the gameplay one step further, giving the player control of emotions that allow you to affect and alter various elements around you to help you on your adventure.

Empathy is focused on storytelling, looking at our surrealistic world through the lenses of various emotions to see how it changes. The world features beautifully crafted artstyle of Massimo Porcella, whose art we intend to transfer from concepts directly into the engine, to have the game match the art as close as possible. While we are doing that uneasy task, you can see a short feature teaser with placeholder art assets and puzzles above, just to demonstrate how the emotions work.

The game will have less focus on how to combine a rubberchicken with a rocket to open a safe, but instead on experiencing the dying world and the stories of people who lived in it; how different groups cope with a dire situation, uncovering the worlds grim story while using the emotions to bend it to your will.

We'd love to hear your thoughts on the project and feedback!
