An Ethereal Adventure through the “Garden of Oblivion” w/ Allahweh!

It was only a few days ago when I first heard about a game called Garden of Oblivion. This probably shouldn’t be surprising: it is an indie game by a small group that usually doesn’t do games at all, but rather graphical novels. The game’s designer, Traumendes_Madchen (pronounced “tremendous mansion?”), designed it for a competition within 72 hours this summer and, after cleaning it up, released it on Indie DB on August 29, 2014.

The game has a very unique style to it. In essence, I think this style might detract a few gamers from giving it a real chance, but I strongly urge you to give this one a go. It has a unique story and artistic style, and in a 30 to 60 minute period of time it manages to draw you in and tell a story that really makes you consider the world around you and the nature of reality.

I hope you enjoy my playthrough, and if you are curious to try this game for yourself, you can find it here on Indie DB.
