About

Blinking against the light, you step into a world that seems broken apart, almost dead… Yet there is a pulse, beating faintly in the back of your mind. What has happened in this place, where the people are gone and their memories echo in the silence? Where emotions appear as physical things, hanging in the air, just waiting for someone to reach out…

Empathy: Path of Whispers is an atmospheric and story-driven adventure game where you explore a seemingly abandoned world through the emotions and memories of the people who once inhabited it, trying to restore the world’s lost balance as you journey through its past. With a strong focus on storytelling and exploration, players will find themselves in a surreal world created from people’s emotions and memories, which can be manipulated and explored. Those lost memories are the key to rebuilding the crumbling world back to its former state, discovering its mysterious past and halting an impending apocalypse. Through its innovative narrative mechanics the game will challenge the player to explore and gain an understanding of the weird world they are traveling through.

Game Features:
  • Discover and explore other peoples’ memories in order to change the world around you, solve puzzles and access new areas.
  • Traverse a strange world and uncover what triggered the silent apocalypse.
  • Follow a narrative as it develops, interwoven with your exploration.
  • Experience the story through multiple first person perspectives and use your wits to piece the events together.

Gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9xd3W0enjk&list=PLSXqN-pfcV6J3HrPpxtjTxxCRS9Jba5bk This Game is just gorgeous. Graphic acid (like me) will love this Game. In addition, there is the incredibly interesting Story, which opens up to you only gradually. This is not just about the big Picture. The Player learns a lot about Individual Fates, Feelings and Thoughts of other People. For me, everything has been very confusing for a long time. It's certainly worth playing through again to grasp everything and also to find the missing Memories you overlooked the first Time. If you're looking for Action, it might not be for you. But if you are looking for Atmosphere, light thrills, Eyecandy and Adventure and like to explore an alien world, I can definitely recommend this Masterpiece to you!

I'm writing this Review right now after playing through the Game. If you like Walking Simulator, you can't do much wrong with this Game. You explore the World and collect Memories to elucidate the Past. You will be Accompanied by a Narrator who is not the First-person. The Game is divided into 5 Acts, with the Transitions being fluid. In short, We are a Child who is asked by the Narrator to help elucidate the Past. After the People of Chernosk went crazy, they finally disappeared altogether. We have to discover The Reason in the Memorabilia that accompanies us on the Way to a solution. The Atmosphere is different in each Area, but each Time harmonious and with matching Music accompaniment. You have a lot of room to Interpret the Scraps of Memory, where you like to be on the wrong Track. You don't get the right Approaches too quickly, which really keeps the whole Game busy and you hardly have dead ends. The Beauty of the Game is that the finds important For the Story become visible with a Scanner, all the optional Scraps of Memory you have to find yourself, so you can't miss any important Parts. Another Point I really appreciate is the authentic Voice Actors. The Diary is clearly designed and contains all the important Memories. In addition, the Control is simple and you can concentrate completely on the Game. Of Course, there are also a few small negative Points, but they don't bother great. Every now and then the Controls Hook and you get stuck on Edges. In some Cases in the Subtitles are Spelling Errors or lack of Translations, which personally did not bother me, but only noticed me. Overall, I can recommend the Game further, even if it is part of the quieter Variety of the Games.
