Waves of Sorrow is a beautiful narrative driven first person platforming adventure where you learn new abilities as you deal with the loss of a loved one.
Created by students from ISART Digital, Waves of Sorrow takes place in a vast liminal space nightmare where you’re constantly in danger of being drowned by the ever rising waves of sorrow. In each area of the game you run and climb away from the waves, but can end up racing an insurmountable obstacle. You then unlock a new ability which allows you to traverse the area in a different way and conquer one of the stages of grief.
It’s a beautiful little game with a touching narrative and great voice acting. There’s a real sense of peril as you attempt to outrun the waves and the levels make clever use of the new abilities you learn.
