'Selini' Launches Kickstarter Campaign, Playable PC Demo - Trailer

by Rainier on March 23, 2023 @ 9:55 a.m. PDT

Selini is an emotional 3D single-player adventure full of colors, sounds, and dreams played in a side-scrolling fashion.

Collect the lost memories of the protagonist in a vast and ruined world, filled with ancient mysteries, minimal Cycladic islands and a forgotten metropolis that holds a dark secret.

Inspired by the titles like Hollow Knight, Hyper Light Drifter (world design) and HOB (world design and puzzles), in Selini take the control of a clone and guide him to locate his lost brothers and sisters.

Search for collectible items in white houses with blue windows or drive an old fishing boat on calm waters, from one fallen little port to another.

An old radio that plays a forgotten tune of a distant time, or a VHS tape that reveals a hint if the protagonist's obscure past.

Time management, memory challenges, observation, resources management and gravity mastering are some of the skills needed to proceed with the story.

Composed in a retro-futuristic setting, the discrete but penetrating music plays an enormous role for the cocktails of emotions that each area has to offer.

After many years in the making, the developer of Selini announced the launch of the Kickstarter Campaign, looking to raise $10,028.

In less than 48 hours they managed to reach the 50% of their goal! You can grab the “Limited Early Bird” tiers and get a discounted copy of the game.

Interested fans can check out a playable PC demo on Steam. The 40-60 minutes gameplay demonstrate sthe core mechanics and the work that we have put on the atmosphere and the "feeling" of the game.

Discover the lore of a ruined and dystopian world, simply by observing the environments, the colors and body language. Selini can be played in any country, and any language since there is no text or speech in-game, players navigate the UI by interpreting international symbols.

Key Features:

  • Collect crystals to unlock doors
  • Collect energy for your space-home
  • Push and drag objects to access new areas
  • Use levers to control abandoned machinery
  • Manipulate gravity
  • Transform the world

Selini is in development for PC (Steam), followed by consoles at a later time.
