Description
Amnesiacs is ready for release after being greenlit and will be free when put on the Steam store. If you have any questions or want to know more please leave a comment and our staff will get back to you promptly.

What is Amnesiacs?
Amnesiacs is a text-based adventure where you will play with a group of four of your friends to solve puzzles, mini-games, and challenges. Each player begins their adventure in a different building of the town and has to find solutions to various problems to escape.

GAMEPLAY
Each player has a unique mental ailment that they have to deal with while playing. One player has a timer that limits the choices they can make if they take too long with a decision. Another has text that tells them everything that can go wrong with their decision before they make it. Another makes the player click the option they want multiple times, showing them each step they must take in order to continue. And the last player has a feeling of nausea that leaves them unable to recall what they've done. These character quirks are meant to represent the feelings of the players when dealing with their new environment.

STORY
You wake up in a mysterious town without any recollection of who you are or how you got there. As you explore the town, you find out that the entire town has been abandoned except for three others who woke up in similar fashion as you. You and three others have to work together to figure a way out of the town and remember your respective pasts.

FEATURES
4 player local turn-based, text-based adventure spanning around 10,000 words for the first act.
3 Minigames/Puzzles
2 Original soundtracks
Black and white line art, with over 30 different backgrounds

ABOUT THE GAME
Amnesiacs is the first game developed by a small team of students from the tech justice program Gameheads, you can check them out here: http://gameheadsoakland.org. Amnesiacs is a response to the magnified emotions when they assume adult responsibilities and deal with anxiety, insecurity, depression, and other mental health issues.

The music and art really set a mysterious and dark atmosphere. This seems like a simple but cool experience for friends to tackle together, because as we all know, spooky things are best experienced together. It's also very clever how the gameplay of each character is tied to the character's feelings.
