Traum is a short, story-driven adventure with psychological horror elements. It encourages the player to explore as interacting with objects reveals more about the world, the story, and the main character himself. Many of the objects can be interacted with multiple times and some items trigger flashback memories of days past. During the gameplay there are also choices that will affect some future events.
The story itself touches on real-life issues and is mature in tone, so the game is not intended for children. Traum has no combat as it relies on suspense, atmosphere, and storytelling. The game has multiple endings where the player must rely on their past interactions to make the choice. Traum also has fully custom character artwork and music.
You’re Mike, a common man who had it all planned out. A loving wife, a house and a steady income. The American dream.
Now stuck with a dull office job and a terrible boss, family was all he got. Tensions from work were carried over to home and while not everything was full of champagne and rose petals, dreams and plans were still intact. Until that one fateful day.
Can even the best of plans be shattered by unexpected news?
For the best experience, play Traum with your lights turned off.
