Areia: Pathway to Dawn is a game about emotions and spiritual growth.
In a world where people struggle with anxiety and depression, our game is here to express serenity and contemplation. It is a unique addition to the range of meditative games.
To achieve these positive emotions we went on a long learning journey through the ancient knowledge of Hinduism and Buddhism looking for aspects that could be relevant to the game without screaming a set of religious beliefs.
it's crucial for us that people can connect with the character and his story without having the same worldview that we had when crafting the experience.
We want every individual to relate to the experience in its own personal way.
Building paths is the main mechanic in Areia: Pathway to Dawn. The character combines the only two elements available in the game's world, sand and water, to create structures connecting you to places otherwise unreachable. This control exerted over sand and water also symbolizes a dichotomy between the material and spiritual and how we need both in equilibrium.
Areia: Pathway to Dawn relies on exploration and platforming as a way to progress through the game. We've made the experience as fluid as we could so performing these actions feel less of a burden on new players and a more relaxing experience for seasoned ones.
Puzzles add the final touch to the game. By using paths you must solve simple but rewarding challenges that shape the world around you.
