A Space for the Unbound Preview
Posted: 5 weeks ago.
The game is set in rural Indonesia during the late 90s, and features hand-drawn and animated pixel art. It is a story-driven experience, relaxing but with a hint of suspense, where much of the interaction is with town-folks who share their personal stories.
The journey is one of self-discovery, following the relationship of a boy and girl at the end of their high-school years. As they help people get unstuck, and move their own lives forwards, they discover supernatural events that begin to threaten their whole existence.
