When The Past Was Around - demo
Xbox One

Something is missing from her world.
But she can neither remember nor forget. Like music from her adolescent days, its tunes resonates, yet its verses have gone silent. Like a beast who stalked in her dreams, its eyes call her, yet its name has been lost. It's been far too long, but she's back here again. In a place, When the Past Was Around.

When the Past Was Around tells a bittersweet tale between a girl and a beast in a surreal world consisting of disjointed rooms from memories and time.

With each clues gathered, puzzles solved, and doors unlocked, the girl will find her way, unraveling the secrets between her and the beast, the secrets which she used to know.
