About

Can death be sleep, when life is but a dream,
And scenes of bliss pass as a phantom by?

To win this game, you must awake the artist in you.

AENTITY is a visual playscape set in a calm unknown, where the primary aim is to have no aim. You are yourself, crafting imagery by exploring Plato’s cave. Be part of the infinite process of creation. The deeper you descend into a far, dreamlike state, more cryptic entities emerge. What is a good state of consciousness? Why are we truly doing what we are doing?

Legend says the other side is made of blinding light. Fathom a way through the Elysian noise. You need to destroy a great many screens slowly filling the retina. Be the path, make a choice. On any true journey you grow a little. Ultimately, the game is about skilling visual composition, something one may use in the real world once in a while.

Intuition is key. You have to move playfully to create appealing and mesmerizing pictures and moods. At its core, wanting is suffering. Be free for a while, just behold, see all the passing by. Out of confusion, as the way is, and the wonder, out of the chaos would come bliss. Someone in wonder watching its art, is the aim and the end.Features
  • EXPERIMENTAL – A surreal, ethereal near death experience.

  • PLETHORA – A myriad of creative possibility. As everything is constantly changing slightly, no two players or sessions will ever be able to create exactly the same picture.
  • PEACEFUL – There is no time limit and it is impossible to get hurt or die.
  • NON-LINEAR – A synaptic, semi-linear groundwork to play with.

AENTITY reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Product received for free "AENTITY" Surreal adventure in a unique art gallery. Here you become not only the spectator, but also the author of pictures! Gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NS9OPeMK0Zs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afj1e3cvWtM is a Unique game. Immediately say that the meaning, gameplay and graphics are not designed for the average user. A Game for creative people with a philosophical mind, for those who like to find hidden meaning in everything, adores art and appreciates unique works. Plot: There is no Plot as such, but the meaning and history are laid in each picture, which we have to draw, explore and understand. In this case, each player will draw it in their own way, and understand the laid washed away each will be in different ways. The Main idea of any picture bears its name, but the details are already dorisovuit and you will finish yourself. Gameplay: The Gameplay is close to the simulators of walking, but here each of our movement causes external changes. Our movements we draw a picture, attach to it shape and color. Therefore, each player picture will be different, everyone can draw his own unique masterpiece. The Truth in the game already laid certain pictures, and by their actions we just change a little thanks to the mechanics and filters. In Order not to get lost in the gallery, you can use the Special menu item "Select". It's like a navigation. Turn on this item and in a small window move around the gallery from the picture to the picture. All the paintings have a name. It helps to choose the right one, because until you have "come" to the picture, have not researched or painted it, the canvas is completely white, and you can easily confuse, where you have already visited, and where not. Goal: So move, choose a picture and start to "draw". Just walk and inspect everything that gets in sight. It reminds me of a ghost chase. In each Picture it is necessary to find the main object and will approach to it. Usually These are shadows of people, but other objects come across. You can interpret this unreal world as you wish. Someone will see in it a dream, visions or dreams, and someone-an afterlife. This is the essence of the game-To awaken the mind, creativity, to give an exit to your imagination and emotions. Bottom Line: A Terrific idea and a decent implementation. I know the graphic Style. I have seen such cartoons, but I have never come across such a game, and even with such an unusual mechanics and an original idea. "AENTITY" is a unique masterpiece. This is not the Black square of Malevich. The game has invested a lot of work, imagination and meaning, only catch it can not all. You can read other reviews and subscribe to our curators. Welcome! 5 minutes of game
