Developer: Julián Palacios Gechtman

Genre: Adventure

A contemplative experience where you’ll wander through the dreams, memories and fantasies emerging from a dialogue between a grandfather and his grandchild. Promesa is a personal project born from a conversation between a grandfather and his grandchild, where you wander through their dreams and memories. While listening to someone trying to remember their experiences, past and present blend together, forming a stream of images that are both personal and shared. From memories of homes and streets to surreal visions of imaginary places, Promesa is a contemplative experience about what happens when we’re left dreaming of the things we haven’t lived firsthand.

Promesa Critic Reviews

‎Art, at its finest, manifests our ability to accept ambiguity, while entertainment is quite the opposite, since its goal is to ensure that there is certainty in this world through a series of values. The concept of video games as an art form is a topic that has always been a point of controversy for the entertainment industry. Despite this, Promesa very accurately represents ‎‎the art of expressing and breaking barriers‎‎ through a family trip that plays a leading role in the exhibition of memories, claiming the importance of remembering from the material preserved in memory and bringing to the present the authentic of the past, what forged us as people.‎

With a running time a little short of an hour, Promesa is meant to be played in a single sitting. For those intrigued by the more artistic side of gaming, it is a dream worth having.

Promesa is another of those works that tries to break the barrier between product and art, using the video game as a narrative medium. It's a short walk of less than an hour, but the setting is wonderful and the graphic style is spectacular. Highly recommended if you like this type of experience.
