Guided only by the letters of a mysterious stranger, you'll find that this universe works differently from our own. It's a world in which obstacles can be overcome by your own creativity - and where art comes to life to create tears in the fabric of reality. Who wrote the letters that guide you?

For an hour-long experience, the main thing I took away from The Search were cheap puzzle mechanics and quotes by American lecturer Joseph Campbell. If the game's main themes were not as openly sermonising, then I could see the narrative being less tedious and players would get more out of it. But sadly, the extent of the story would have been much better suited as an essay, short film, or poem.
