Soul Searching is a narrative survival game where you control a lone traveler who sails from homeland to an endless sea. On the way, you’ll visit different islands, discover stories of their people, and learn about souls and dragons.

Outside the main story, you can try a multiplayer in the random mode where up to 4 players work together on generated maps. More players mean more resources needed to survive – cooperation is vital. Also, there are seven other short stories that experiment with different ideas about gameplay and storytelling. Be sure to check them out; you may find them exciting and innovative.

Features:

  • Single-player mode with a deep and emotional story.
  • Random mode for 1 to 4 players that randomly generates a map and requires players to work together to survive.
  • Creatures at sea: dragons, killer whales, and more.
