Aporia - Darkmist Forest is an open world, explorative adventure game (1st person) that focus on interactive environmental storytelling set in a dark and enigmatic forest. In Aporia, we tell a story without using character interaction, text, or dialogue. Instead, we use paintings, objects and other environmental features. This gives different interpretations and the story will be different depending on what you find and in which order. Also, as developers we feel that the explorative elements and natural environment of present computer games, is often overlooked and the players’ freedom is limited by invisible walls and inaccessible areas. Aporia gives you the sensation of discovering something hidden and secret and you have full freedom to go wherever you want. Darkmist Forest is inspired by games like Dear Esther, Journey, Myst, and Amnesia.

As you might have guessed this is a student project, and we are currently developing a new version of Aporia, keeping the style and (maybe) theme. It is going to be spectacular, and we hope you are looking forward to be playing again.
