Leaves is a contemplative game where the environment plays a key role to explore main character's thoughts, memories and sensations. It's not easy to get back home after many years of silence, and that's what the game experience is about: fighting fears by looking for help in the familiar places.
Inspired by ergodic literature and Virginia Woolf's stream of consciousness, Leaves's story is introspective, partly randomized and branching.
Leaves is set in a remote province of Apulia, in southern Italy and includes wonderful scenarios with full day/night cycle.
