Cylne is available through Steam (March 5, 2015) :
Cylne is a first person surreal exploration game, in the form of a visual poems collection.
Choose a symbol to explore and feel unreal worlds filled with psychic/environmental enigmas and platforming. Surrounded by a dark halo, dive into consciousness roots to find meaning…
These poem-like worlds are linked together by a common thread. Explore strange places, from ancient architectures to abstract and wide stripped landscapes, to find it. You may also encounter strange life forms.
The only thing you know about your avatar is this strange misty halo. Cylne doesn’t impose narrative elements.
At the end of this journey, you will be faced with a choice that echoes your experience and might unlock some mysteries. In a way, the game is about self revelation : you create your own story.
