A narrative driven exploration game set in surreal colonial India.
People of Kayamgadh do not speak.
They are afraid that their words might penetrate the layers under which
their bodies are hidden. Afraid that some phrase or name might,
through woolen caps and cotton plugs and balled bits of torn rags,
enter their buried ears and insert itself into their thoughts, prompting
them to think of Kayamgadh not as they see it but as it is being
described to them by the person speaking these words.
It is a fear so deeply entrenched, that people now see the city with
unwilling eyes, shaded behind their hands, lest they be tempted into
a sudden burst of verbiage whilst looking upon the wonders of
Kayamgadh. a temptation that might resist the doctrine of their self
For Kayamgadh is a wonderful city, where the craftsmen strive hard to
put into form all that they cannot give words to, and where the work
of the craftsman is left undisturbed, for it is only looked upon but
never described by the people, who never speak.
It is a narrative driven, exploration game with elements of stealth,
and is played in the first person mode.
The game is set in an alternate Colonial India. And explores the strange consequences of the search for a mythical city called Kayamgadh.
You navigate through the stories about Kayamgadh by becoming other people. And as you shift identities, you realize that each person you become, is a figment of another character’s imagination and a part of yet another story.
Explore this convoluted construction, celebrate it’s absurdity and
piece together it’s strangely crafted stories.
Controls are explained as part of brief tutorial at the beginning of the game. Do go through the tutorial !
