About the game

Traum is a short, story-driven game with horror elements. It encourages the player to explore as interacting with objects reveals more about the world, the story, and the main character himself. Many of the objects can be interacted with multiple times and some items trigger flashback memories of days past. During the gameplay there are also choices that will affect some future events. 

The story itself touches on real-life issues and is mature in tone, so the game is not intended for children. Traum has no combat as it relies on suspense, atmosphere, and storytelling. The full version will have multiple endings where the player must rely on their past interactions to make the choice. Traum also has fully custom character artwork and music.


 You're Mike, a common man who had it all planned out. A loving wife, a house and a steady income. The American dream. 

Now stuck with a dull office job and a terrible boss, family was all he got. Tensions from work were carried over to home and while not everything was full of champagne and rose petals, dreams and plans were still intact. Until that one fateful day.

Can even the best of plans be shattered by unexpected news?

For the best experience, play Traum with your lights turned off.

Awesome Game! Loved the idea of creppy horror mixed with reallife horror.

An absolutely exceptional RPG Horror game! This title ensures to keep the player questioning and on edge as they dive into the mind of Mike Smalling, the protagonist. By all means, this game uses the perfect combination of horror and real life trauma to tell a very compelling story. If you're interested in watching my trip through Traum, feel free :)

We are currently developing it and will release it when we have more to show!
Our previous coder decided to remove the link of the game and the page. We are sorry for the inconvenience, we are trying to solve the matter.
