About Calendula

  • Calendula begins as a usual game… until it is not anymore.
  • The player’s goal will be to unveil the mystery behind an apparently broken game, but it won’t be easy.
  • Calendula’s mechanics are entirely focused on the struggle of trying to start a game, exploring the limits of the 4th wall and breaking with conventions.
  • Calendula’s aesthetics follows an increasing obscure atmosphere, plunging the player into a disturbing, thrilling experience.
  • The narrative is built within a labyrinth of metaphors and abstractions, ready to be unraveled.
  • Unlike other games, the player will feel as if things didn’t work the way they should, similar to Twin Peaks’ Red Room (David Lynch).
  • The player’s journey goes from simple to complex, from bright to somber, from real to dreamlike.
  • To follow Calendula’s path, the player will have to use his wit and think outside the box. In this case, a tiny oppressive box.

    Please, remember this: It is not your fault.
