A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

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.

Hey, is this in any way related to the steam game AENTITY?

Hey there,
no, this is a different project. RŌA is still in the works. However, it will also be released on Steam in the near future. We are always working on several experiments with different artistic styles and directions and gameplay mechanics. At some point project RŌA and its pastel shades stopped for a while. However, our Steam page of RŌA has been done for some time and could theoretically be activated at any time as "Coming soon". On the one hand, there are still a few ideas that we would like to incorporate. On the other hand, there are other larger and smaller projects and ideas on the list and always too little time for everything. Therefore, as things stand today, we also tend to release this work sooner rather than later on Steam (i.e. in days or weeks rather than months). Have you already tried one of the two games? If you bought RŌA here, you will also get a Steam copy when we finally hit this road. Vise versa project AENTITY will be released here later and you can then get an itch.io copy if you prefer.
