What does your happiness feel like. What was your first memory. Who has changed you. Restless seekers, bustling, endeavoring, zealously and always busy. Their origin is the same, but their paths are not.

RŌA is a cryptic single-player first-person play on awareness and fugacity. Somewhere between life and dream, we are an observer of our own experience. The journey is the destination here, a challenge not everyone is ready for. Chasing meaning in the void.

The Look and Feel

Atmospheric Experimental Glitch Pixel-Art Artgame Colorful Peaceful Relaxing First-Person Weird Surreal


While in many games the beings are eliminated by clicks, in RŌA you put them at rest or awake them again. Choose their pose and position from a wide range of options. Are you playing them? Are they playing you? This sometimes also induces some side effects in a certain order. There are two possible endings. One has to chase or catch the moment attentively to see something splendid appear.

While emotions can coexist, they often wipe each other out. As humor or plain thrill will detract from certain subjects, thought and sense are their big parts. Are you open to the uncommon, in wonder watching the stars, maybe going to museums sometimes? Then the game might be notable for you.

RŌA\ro'-a\n. See also REST (contemporary): ancient tongue for TRANQUILITY, REPOSE: State of inner calm. Also: stillness, silence, peace.

Weird pictorial experience with an astonishing visual. The main aesthetic is a little bit too confusing, but I really loved this strange travel - a modern artwork. The sounds helped me. Maybe I am wrong, but there are some keys in order to progress in a game. This project is not recommended for those who have some seizure disorder or something similar. 5/5* Thank you. I wish you the best ++

I'm trying to activate an old Groupees key for ROA and I'm being redirected to this page. Luckily there's also a steam key that is working, but I shouldn't be asked to pay again...

Same here.

can confirm, itch key doesn't work.

can someone pm me if this get resolved, please?

Itch says 688 keys out of the 690 given to Groupees were claimed. Who may be left now?

no, my key still doesn't work =(

i post it here since its broken, you can try it yourself - https://arquoia.itch.io/roa/download/grps-8qXiUv3R8NcV6WUSWU3fVaGkqV5p-

@AkaiKitsune Wherever it comes from, a key string containing '8qX' isn't part of the grps key list. Anyway, please take this one (will expire in two weeks):
