Holovista is an adventure game where you play by taking and sharing photographs. You play as Carmen an up-and-coming architect who is tasked to live in and take photographs at mysterious mansion. Your job is to take photographs of specific objects and post some to the in-game social media feed, where Carmen’s friends comment and post their updates. Additionally, you will talk with other characters through the in-game messaging system.

In doing this you help Carmen solve the mysteries of the mansion, learn about herself, and build on her relationships with her friends and family. Almost no part of the gameplay is timed or limited, so you can revisit locations, social media posts, and messages. The story and events quickly grow serious and addresses topics around mental health, death, and religion, among others.

You can revisit rooms after taking the required photographs to find additional objects. Finding all the objects in a room before advancing the story you will allow access to private social media posts Carmen creates for herself.
