Okay, wake up.

You have no information. About anything. Not even yourself. You’re in a world forgotten by time and space. You don’t remember this place, yet it’s been waiting for your return.

Explore ancient structures. Discover anomalous puzzles that will challenge your mind. Wander through fascinating landscapes. Each world you encounter will have its own theme, color, gameplay and ambience.

Remember. Find yourself. Learn new abilities that will facilitate your passage. Discover the past and future of places you never dreamed could exist. Experience a mesmerizing journey full of wonder.

ESSENCE has a narrative story that will link its worlds together and explain your existence and purpose in them.

Developer ONEVISION has elected to split the game into three acts, each with several hours of gameplay. Act 1 will be available for Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam Early Access . Xbox One, PS4 and VR versions are tentatively planned.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
