Unleaving (Demo) – Let’s Play

Hello friends. This is a Let’s Play video of “Unleaving” demo version. When everything seems hopeless a child is awakened by the whispers of the last leaf, drawn into an imaginary world. Unleaving invites the player into a narrative-driven puzzle platformer where each challenge unfolds within a hand-painted landscape, exploring perception and meaning.

“Unleaving” is a mesmerizing journey into a world where imagination and reality blend seamlessly. Inspired by Gerard Manley Hopkins’ poignant poem, this narrative-driven puzzle platformer invites players to explore the ephemeral beauty of life through the eyes of a child awakened by the last leaf’s whispers. Set against a backdrop of hand-painted landscapes, each frame of “Unleaving” is a testament to the artistry of traditional animation, where pencil and graphite bring puzzles to life. With every scene unique and every chapter themed to guide mood and story, players are drawn into an art experience that challenges perception and explores philosophical themes. This game is not just an adventure; it’s an invitation to immerse oneself in an extended series of multimedia paintings and drawings, where skill-based challenges and story-driven puzzles await.
