From Continue?9876543210 creator Jason Oda and tinyBuild, the meditation/action-adventure Waking is out today on PC (Steam, GOG) and Xbox One! Launching with a week-long 20% discount on PC, there’s no better time to traverse the twisted pathways of your mind. Be sure to check out the powerful launch trailer, which debuted on Saturday at the GamesRadar+ Future Games Show:
An immensely personal game, Waking sees players delve into their own memories, experiences, fears, and desires to overcome being locked in the all-encompassing darkness of a coma. With real-world guided meditations, third-person exploration, and intense combat, Jason Oda’s ambitious introspective adventure is wholly unique, and driven by the desire for players to look within themselves.
