GRiEF Released and Screens

The game has won two awards, Swedish Game Awards: Best Scenario 2013 and Skövde Academic Game Award 2013
Developed by TarHead Studio, GRiEF is a 2D sidescrolling platform game in which you take the role of a small child who recently lost its father in cancer due to a long time habit of smoking and is therefore going through the five stages of grief. The stages represent different emotional phases a person experiences when grieving, and they are called Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance.
Each of these stages is represented in the game as a playable level and through the use of not only graphics, music and a compelling story but also through the use of the games mechanics an emotional experience is created for the player.
GRiEF is available now via Desura - four screenshots found their way in our gallery.
