About Essays on Empathy

About this game

Essays on Empathy is a curated compilation of Deconstructeam's best efforts in seeking new narrative experiences in games.

Inhabit the lives of a diverse cast of characters from all walks of life in bite-sized, innovative, interactive stories; from a hitman working at a flower shop, to a schoolgirl who is convinced her skeleton isn't hers.

Explore 10 unique, offbeat tales including "De Tres al Cuarto," a brand new short experience exclusive to the compilation about a couple of two-bit comedians trying to make it big.

  • Ten Short Games About Life: Step into the shoes of a richly imagined cast of characters over 5 hours of vivid and varied gameplay.
  • Premium Collector's Bonus Content: Soak up Deconstructeam's acclaimed artistry through sketches, design insights and a new mini documentary created specially for this collection.
  • Sounds Of Sympathy: Features more than 2 hours of original music by Paula Ruiz, aka fingerspit.
