Scents & Semiosis

I made a thing? I made a thing.

Scents & Semiosis is a fully-Vorpled I7 piece about perfume, memory and personal symbols. It makes heavy use of procedural generation; is a reflective, puzzleless game with a focus on theme and implied narrative; and it’s mostly light-toned - maybe a little bittersweet or melancholy in there, but mostly Nice Things. (I blogged at length about it here.)

Yoon Ha Lee, Cat Manning and Caleb Wilson contributed content; and Cat, in her role as producer, is the reason that it actually get finished. They are all good and generous people and I am super-grateful for them.

Play-time is about ten minutes, but it’s procgen; you’ll probably want to go round a few times.
