Waking is a world exploration game where you play a character in a coma. You enter their dreams, The Mindscape, in the recesses of their mind and follow voices calling you home.

The Mindscape is a dangerous, shifting reality. You explore the maze-like world through thoughts and memories from your life. Some of these make you face personal fears where you must use the memory of particular friends to battle and defeat what you discover and uncover the mystery of your dreaming.

"Locked in the darkness of a coma, you dream. In the recesses of your mind, voices call you home, beckoning you towards the light and the void beyond. But it is not your time. Not yet."

It's a meditative game that blurs the line between fantasy and reality. The third-person exploration interplays with guided meditation techniques to create an experience that is both a game and an opportunity to reflect on your own emotions and memories.
