Maker of the Sky
Traum is a short, narrative-driven game with horror elements. It encourages the player to explore as interacting with objects reveals more about the world, the story, and the main character himself. Many of the objects can be interacted with multiple times and some items trigger flashback memories of days past. During the gameplay there are also choices that will affect some future events.
The story itself touches on real-life issues and is mature in tone, so the game is not intended for children. Traum has no combat as it relies on suspense, atmosphere, and storytelling. The full version will have multiple endings where the player must rely on their past interactions to make a choice. Traum also has fully custom character artwork and music.
