A Surreal Cave Odyssey 

Sephonie will pull in gamers who may not usually pick 3D platformers as their genre of choice, as its unique levels and surreal, complex story offer a unique and unrivalled gaming experience!

You play as three East Asian scientists, Amy, Ing-wen and Riyou, each with a distinctive personality. Each has stories and cultural references you’ll learn about as you guide them through tricky caves with your fast, gravity-defying platforming moves. Sephonie seamlessly integrates 3D platforming and a complex story about ecological themes and Asian history.

Navigate The Island’s Mysteries

The player starts on the island surface, then enters red, sandstone caverns, before making their way to a jade-coloured cavern of towering trees. In between exploration, meet wondrous creatures who grant you new platforming abilities, and experience “Mindshares”, short, visual novel-esque segments, where you get to hear about the lives of the three protagonists.

During a “Mindshare,” the characters are actually learning about each other’s experiences and secrets! As they grow closer, the levels start to surreally become places from their lives, such as a Tokyo cityscape, Japanese shopping malls, and American Midwest suburbs!
