Experimental Narrative Experience

Story

Deliriant is a brief narrative experience that takes a subtle approach to the exploration of serious topics like abuse, coping mechanisms, and familial relationships. Play as the mother of a family of four, discovering the spaces you've carved out for yourselves, the belongings that you cherish, and what that says about each of you.

Gameplay

  • Environmental Storytelling - The environment evolves as a character and drives the story through player interaction. As you explore, the home will place its own significance, reacting to your presence in lieu of its residents.
  • Experimental Narrative - Although you are the mother of this family, you see the spaces they own as if through the eyes of a stranger. Your family will never share their pain with you. They can't. But the attempt to know that pain might be made.
  • Made by Students - One of the first student games to develop and self-publish on the PlayStation®4, Deliriant was created from the ground up to be a real thesis. Because of this, it strives for a somber tone and degree of abstraction not often seen in games.
