is an cinematic narrative adventure game with both puzzle and exploration elements, told through the introspection and recollection of Ezra Westmark. Find creative ways to make your way out of the darkness, uncovering the journey that lead him there and the hope that leads him home.
But how can the future be bright when it feels so dark? How can you give meaning to emptiness? And how can you have hope when everything is hopeless? Join Ezra on his journey back to confront his past, overcoming challenges on the way and, hopefully, discovering who he really is.
Inspired by point-and-click adventure games, TTS allows you to collect and combine important items along your journey. These items and their combinations can be used to manipulate the environment in many varied and unexpected ways. Obstacles are not intended as a test of your intelligence. Rather, you are facing the same challenges that Ezra faces and thinking creatively to overcome them. Do not expect to solve the same puzzle over and over again.
An average playthrough may take anywhere from 2 to 10 hours - the world is rich and varied, designed to be savoured. Please take the time to experience it - this game is not intended to be completed quickly or an excessive number of times. It is intended (like Inside, The Beginner's Guide, Gone Home, Firewatch etc.) to be a conversation, a 21st century recurrence of an ancient pastime. Sit and stare into the fire, and we'll tell you a story.
