Publisher tinyBuild and Waking developer Jason Oda confirmed that the indie title will launch on Xbox One and PC on June 18.
Waking is described as an emotional adventure within the subconscious. You’re locked in a coma, and you will battle your inner demons to wake up. To do that, you’ll enter into guided meditations, which offer treasured memories and the people you love. Waking, according to the publisher is the “most personal game ever made.”
Here’s more from the press release:
- A true meditative experience: Third-person exploration melds with guided meditation techniques to create a new type of experience at the intersection of reflection, emotion and memory.
- A uniquely personal journey: Waking asks you to draw on your own experiences, fears and desires and bring them with you on your journey to wake. Your memories are your protectors, your companions and your weapons.
- A world of dreams and nightmares: The Mindscape is a treacherous place, a shifting, twisted maze of shattered thoughts and errant memory.
- A fight to survive. A fight to exist: Trapped within your dying mind you face a choice: give in to oblivion or fight for your existence. Use your memories and willpower to uncover the mystery of your dreaming, and return to the waking world.
