Description

Promesa is an atmospheric first-person person journey that explores the underground images we share in our relationships.In this contemplative experience you’ll wander through the impressions that emerge when you listen to someone who is a deep part of your identity, when the memories and dreams of both blend together in images that are at the same time personal and shared.It’s about memory and the feeling of reality.About the way we remember things; and the way things make us remember.

History

After the release of a couple of short experimental videogames, the development for Promesa started in 2016 as a personal project. Domiziano Maselli, Andrea Cedraro and Martín Palacios joined the team during development. The idea for it came after a few conversations I had with my grandfather. We live in different countries, and that was the first time that we shared our feelings directly, talking about the bad moment we were both going through. When you listen to someone who is a deep part of your identity, their memories and tales can become like dreams and visions. These images become like something that you go towards to or like something you try to resurface with your memory. With Promesa I tried to depict this underground flux of images that are both personal and shared, images that tell your dreams and memories but also those from your family.
