Waking is a game that will invoke your deepest memories

Solo developer Jason Oda and tinyBuild are proud to announce that emotional and atmospheric action/adventure game Waking is launching on PC and Xbox One on June 18.

Inviting you to meditate and invoke beloved memories to combat the forces of darkness, Waking is uniquely driven by your personal journey. See for yourself in the latest trailer for the ID@Xbox funded game:

First announced as Coma at E3 2017, Waking combines third-person exploration and real-world guided meditation in an introspective journey of self-reflection and remembrance. Traverse the twisted pathways of your mind in a quest to wake, and make choices that shape a uniquely individual experience. Along the way, face your fears and desires as you summon memories of loved ones, and do battle with those who would have you sleep forever

Key highlights:
  • A true meditative experience: Third-person exploration melds with guided meditation techniques to create a new type of experience at the intersection of reflection, emotion and memory.
  • A uniquely personal journey: Waking asks you to draw on your own experiences, fears and desires and bring them with you on your journey to wake. Your memories are your protectors, your companions and your weapons.
  • A world of dreams and nightmares: The Mindscape is a treacherous place, a shifting, twisted maze of shattered thoughts and errant memory.
  • A fight to survive. A fight to exist: Trapped within your dying mind you face a choice: give in to oblivion or fight for your existence. Use your memories and willpower to uncover the mystery of your dreaming, and return to the waking world.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
