Iris just woke up from a dream, but after going outside of her house, she finds herself in another world.

You are Iris, a 17 year old girl who, after a harsh sensation of falling in her dreams, wakes up in her room.

Yet, something feels out of place, and she feels the need to get out of home. By doing so, Iris discovers that she has woken in a strange place, isolated, with only one tree, her house and a house very similar to hers. Inside she finds a being like her, but like a shadow. It tells her to find the "effects" hidden in the world.

On her way out, Iris sees strange portals hanging from the tree. After touching one, she is transported to a new world, radically different from the one she was in.

Iris realizes that to know more of this world, she'll have to find the "effects" the shadow was talking about.

This game is powered by:

Iris

Iris is a 17 year old girl. She's shy, timid, quiet, introvert and not very social. She escapes reality often mainly by dreaming. For this very reason, she sleeps a lot, leaving aside important activities such as doing her homework... or eating.

Despite the fact that she doesn't pay much attention to classes in school, she loves to read and seeks interesting subjects for she has learned that by having something in her mind before sleeping, her dreams are about that. She likes what she has read about the world, but she doesn't dare to face the world around her.

 

The shadow

The Shadow is a mysterious entity that looks interested in helping Iris, or at least is the only one that has told her something about this place.

She sends Iris to look for the "effects."

What are her true intentions? Iris will have to find out.

 

 

 

Crow

The power to return to the nexus, no matter how long you are or if you are stuck in trap room.

 

 

 

Thorn

It can hide Iris from enemies but it won't let you move nor jump.

 

 

 

Automaton Blade

If you are in danger or an obstacle, Iris can unleash the power of the blade to destroy it. But your movement will be slow like an old machine

 

  

Water Strider

Iris can walk over the water and swim under it.

 

 

 

Dove

Increases movement when you run and how high Iris can jump. But if Iris is hit by something, you will regret about it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Nexus

The main area of this strange world. It looks a lot like your home, but a lot creepier.

Dolls Island

By going through the doll on the Portal Tree, Iris can get to this place. The isle is a creepy, dark and humid place. The place is full of trees with dolls of all kinds tied to them. The inhabitants of this place are, as to be expected, worn out, living dolls. Some are hostile, but most of them are harmless.

Other inhabitants include the floraspine people, a group of plant beings that like to hang out and are generally happy.

Lucum Library

By using the book on the Portal Tree, Iris can find the Lucum Library. Here, all the elements are made of cut out photos, book pages and more. The elements and inhabitants of this place look very different from Iris, they move like a stop motion animation. Everything here looks as if one were on the pages of a book.

The inhabitants of Lucum Library are the harpies, which are very dangerous and hostile, as well as cut-out people, who are quite calm.

Flesh Cubes

A deserted wasteland where huge flesh cubes exist. A visceral and not very nice place to live or be.
