OverviewOverview

Ensamey is a narrative game where you run and jump to explore a story told by a 4 year-old and their father. As the child tells the story, what they say and draw appears in the game for you to interact and play with.

"I asked my 4 year old daughter to imagine an alien planet. She drew lots of pictures and we talked about it a lot and then we built it in Dreams," said developer Peter Field, Principal Designer at Media Molecule and previously at Naughty Dog on Uncharted and The Last of Us.

Play involves running around the alien landscape as an astronaut. There are no dangers or ways to die so you can take your time looking around. As you progress you trigger next moments in the story where you meet creatures.

As you play a story unfolds where you need to help a strange creature find their parents, because they can't see where they are going themselves. You get a mission to find the baby creature's home and fill the planet with flowers.

The result is an endearing game from the mind of a 4 year old. Like a bedtime story it's a chance to visit an imaginary world. If you want some more, the same developer's earlier game, Panis Pot is also worth checking out.
