Description :Cylne is a first person surreal exploration game, in the form of a visual poems collection. Choose a chapter to explore and feel unreal worlds filled with environmental enigmas, surprises and some platforming. Try to achieve the chapter called "The Choice". Surrounded by a dark halo, dive into ethereal ambience 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 misty halo. Cylne doesn't impose narrative elements.

But 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.Warning :The game contains flashing and bright lights which may not be suitable for people with photosensitive epilepsy.

Cylne is a game but not in the standard meaning of entertainment or fun.

Cylne reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
EN Impresions: v. 0-what should I know about Cylne? (I pronounce it inexplably "quylne" from the beginning) What's that? Cylne offers a first-person-sensitive experience. By having tried a lot in his niche, I do not think it is a game of "puzzle" (he claims it quite little in his description), so far I find it difficult to understand what I am doing there exactly! I want to paste the term "anything" but not in a derogatory sense! He proposes a remarkable constancy in the deconusction of his levels and the "inacessibility" of his logics, this is the most interesting point of the game so far. Visually if I spoke of sensitive experience, it is the Visual that prevails first on the other senses (logic). There, it fishes, sincerement, the title often offers powerful and fascinating panoramas, but it also often offers bland or not worked visuals at all. The majority of the scenes do not support the movement. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=476429562 VS. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=476426906 move and magic falls at high speed, the shader does not follow, the lighting becomes less interesting, put your eyes in the wrong place and you will see the structure of the textures repeating itself in a loop, it reminds me of a mod, a good mod. The sky moves with you and often you will see the very inelegant border of the map. The title does it on purpose I imagine, it forces you hand to fall back on your imagination or wants to redirect you to your other senses. The technique (Dx9) is retro, it reminds me of what could be seen a long time ago in the games. The game is short, like all those of its kind, 6 chapters, minimal interactions, WSQD and the ability to jump. In terms of options it is decevant. There are practically none. Resolution, vSync, mouse sensitivity, choose the chapter to play and that's about it. Resolution side I was retarded when I saw that the Max resolutions are the FHD and its for 16:10 (1920x1200). Really disappointed. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=476433985 Cylne is interesting for an informed or very curious audience, he makes a nottable effort on sound and sensation, refusing to let the Visual refine the experience. If you want a more accessible experience (and also visually exceptional, I invite you to experiment MIND: path to thalamus before returning to Cylne, a little more intransigent). + in the same genre: Nasancee, mirrormoon and probably Niko (to appear) feel free to react, whether for a question or to report an error--Smithfield add me, if...!
