OverviewOverview

Sunlight is a short adventure game where you explore an uncharted forest, guided by harmonised whispers. As you move from tree to tree you discover different voices, genders and dialects, speaking as one. Taking artistic inspiration from expressionist painters like Monet and Munch, Sunlight aims to leave you feeling entranced with its unusual approach to story telling.

The hauntingly beautiful music, composed by Tchaikovsky, was recorded in the Archbishops palace in Trondheim, Norway, and sung by the award winning choir Kammerkoret Aurum. Along with a wide range of voice actors spanning multiple continents, the atmospheric and meditative story comes alive.

It's a singular game that some may find too simple or short. But it offers an unusual opportunity to experience the connected nature and unspoken communication of everything that is alive.
