    Anyone heard of To Leave, a platformer by Ecuadorian studio Freaky Creations? If not, check out the trailer below:



    To Leave is a psychadelic trip through a dark, cosmic Latin American mythology, derelict futurescapes, and the depths of its main character’s own mind. A little bit about the studio:

    “Freaky Creations is dedicated to forging emotional experiences that explore the depths of the human soul. Though their creations are interactive, Freaky Creations views them more as artifacts than traditional games, as they can be used as tools to unleash the video game medium’s artistic potential. They hope that, with To Leave, players can immerse themselves in a world that encourages them to examine their own emotions and empathize with the plights of others.

    To Leave is Freaky Creations’ first title, and they hope that you will support them in bringing the Ecuadorian video game developer scene to the world stage.”

    As you might be able to tell from the trailer, To Leave explores the mental state of the main character, Harm, through imagery, symbolism, and challenging gameplay. Harm suffers from manic depression, and To Leave follows his (potentially destructive) journey as he attempts to cope with it. Which games have you played that made you think more deeply about your own mental well-being? Are there other games out there that you think explore these themes particularly well?

    To Leave is coming to Steam on October 4 and is available on PlayStation 4.

    Hey Everyone,


    If you’re looking for something new to play on PC or Mac, Freaky Creations’ psychological platformer To Leave is out now on Steam.


    To Leave offers players a precipitous ride through otherworldly dimensions, but it also examines the hardships of mental illness, which has been a popular topic recently both in games and in real life.


    If you want to peer into the world of Harm and To Leave, take a look at the trailer below:
