Puzzle Platformer Sym Coming To Steam In March

Posted by GG Goblin On February - 11 - 2015

ATRAX Games and Mastertronic will be bringing the unique puzzle platformer Sym to Steam in March, and there is a demo available to try out right now.

 


 
Sym is a puzzle-platformer by ATRAX Games, with a theme inspired by social anxiety disorder. Play as Josh, a teenage boy tormented by a crippling form of social anxiety and navigate his journey to reconcile a maze of two contrasting worlds, coexisting within the blank spaces of each other – his perception of reality and the world he created to avoid his fears.

 
Josh exists in his own world as alter egos, Caleb and Ammiel. Caleb lives in the light, white world and wants to overcome his fears. For him, black is solid and white is hollow. With Ammiel, it is the opposite. Ammiel is representative of Josh’s inner, reclusive self where he wants to be lonely and where feeling ‘safe’ is to escape totally from human contact. They cannot exist simultaneously. Both worlds depict dangers that the player must overcome, and an inner monologue written across Sym’s abstract spaces serves to illuminate the anguish the character endures.

 
Plunge into the Sym demo available now on Steam to help Josh solve his problems and navigate his journey through the realms of light and dark. Can you support Josh to find a path to safety?

 
Sebastiano Morando, Programmer, ATRAX Games, commented: “Finally our effort is rewarded! I want to thank all the people who voted us on Steam Greenlight!”

 
Stuart Morton, Producer, Mastertronic, said: “Sym is the perfect example of how games can push boundaries and combine great gameplay whilst tackling significant real-world issues. The team at Atrax Games handle the challenge with distinction. It’s a pleasure to be working with them to bring Sym to the world.”
