Cylne New Trailer
Description
Release date: Q3 2014
Cylne is a first person surreal exploration game, in the form of a visual poems collection. Choose a chapter to explore and feel unreal worlds filled with psychic/environmental enigmas and platforming. Surrounded by a dark halo, dive into roots of consciousness to find meaning...

These poem-like worlds are linked together by a common thread. Explore weird places, from ancient architectures to abstract and wide stripped landscapes. You may also encounter strange life forms.

The only thing you know about your avatar is this strange misty halo.

At the end of this journey, you will be faced with a choice that echoes your experience and might unlock some mysteries. In a way, the game is about self revelation.

One way to solve the puzzles is to use the halo.

Cylne, un voyage atypique. (...) Son univers a de quoi intriguer les curieux qui aiment profiter d'expériences atypiques dans le jeu vidéo et faire travailler leur imaginaire.

Poems always invoke an insightful visual style through their prose. What readers see is up to their interpretation, though. Robert Frost’s “Road Less Traveled” might be a bramble-laden dark forest to one person and a trashy alley to another. It all depends on perspective. There’s generally a tactile nature to poems, and you can almost feel your way through them, reaching out into the dark while a trail of unknown entities whizzes by you. That sense of journey, of exploration, is what seems to have inspired the first-person exploration game, Cylne.

In the midst of a rising surplus of non combat, exploration games, Cylne shows promise to deliver an emotional experience about self revelation. The game is clearly trying to do something different, and for that reason, it deserves some attention.

This game looks like a poster from the 90s come to life. (…) the one you’d eventually get to if you kept on flipping, which portrayed wilderness scenes with vaguely new age or pagan imagery. That pretty much describes the look of the surreal exploration game Cylne

Cylne is certainly not a game like any other. It's more a psychedelic and poetic trip than a classic adventure game. This demo should convince you without difficulty.

Cylne n'est certainement pas un jeu comme les autres. Il s'agit davantage d'un trip psychédélique et poétique que d'un jeu d'aventure classique. Cette démo devrait d'ailleurs vous en convaincre sans difficulté.

It certainly looks interesting but since I'm not a poetic person, this might be a little hard on me. A bit of a story would be helpful.

I helped voted because it reminds of of Kairo, where the environment gives the player a very unique experience. Sort of like how I was blown away by the world of Myst when I first played it.

I was sick and had a bad headache and while watching the videos of this game actually made my headache go away lol. Love it, the sounds is also nice. Though I'm not into poems nor can i make a haiku in school but exploring I do like.
