Out now on Steam, Repressed is indie developer Sigur Studio and accelerator ARP Games comes a narrative-driven puzzle adventure game. In Repressed, players play as a solo shadow representation and embark on a journey inside the mind.
Being a shadow completely changes the dynamic of the game. Shadows need light in order to exist. Darkness, the absence of light, is its worst enemy.Through changing the angle of the light or the camera’s position may reveal new paths, puzzles, and even scraps of memory.

Over time as players navigate the maze that is memory they may find answers to the questions that have bothered them for ages. However, players should be careful as not all memories are worth revisiting.
The game of Repressed features a unique noir aesthetic with unusual graphics designed to keep players immersed in the remarkable. At the same players can keep their on exploring memories.
