Tells a story of a young woman, who survives a car accident. Recovering at the hospital, she experiences dreams that shed light on different aspects of her identity - such as the way she deals with the loss of her parents. The game lets you experience those dreams in an interactive way, reminiscent of point-and-click adventure games. It builds upon this established formula by introducing a gesture-based interface, real-time 3D technology for dynamic level layouts, unique photographic visuals and a level design philosophy that focuses on creating a rich experience rather than an elaborate puzzle challenge. Combined with the unconventional story, it is aimed to be a compact and deep game for a literate and mature audience.
All past and future Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle customers will have a nice, shiny copy of TRAUMA on their Humble Bundle download page. If you redeemed your bundle on Desura, TRAUMA should automatically be added to your library.
TRAUMA tells a story of a young woman who survives a car accident.

TRAUMA lets you experience those dreams through an engaging, photo-based point-click-and-gesture adventure. Here's the trailer:

Krystian Majewski's TRAUMA won several awards at last year's Independent Games Festival, and was a finalist at Indiecade 2010 and European Innovative Games Award 2010. TRAUMA's intricate storytelling makes for a distinct counterpoint to the cerebral, tactical-action flavor of Frozen Synapse. If one were an oenophile, one might say that TRAUMA offers strong notes of Myst, finely made in German oak barrels filled with a young woman's intricate and feverish dreams.
The Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle has raised more than $460,000 within the first 48 hours. We hope you all enjoy TRAUMA in addition to Frozen Synapse and the Frozenbyte games. There are only 12 days left in the promotion so please tell your friends.
Highest Rated (5 agree) 8/10
The game is incredibly stunning visually. Engaging storyline and true indie passion for something different.
My only complaint is the lenght... Tad bit short.

Interesting concept, very poorly executed. Needs more of an engaging story line, better voice acting, and an over arching goal/feeling of progress of some sort.
