A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Walk Sim Walk Sim is a video game about video games. More specifically it is a brief critical analysis of the "walking simulator" genre, presented as a walking simulator.

WSWS first takes you through what a walking simulator is. Then looks at how people and critics perceive them; moving on to why walk sims work as well as they do. Finally, it talks about how they fit into the larger landscape of digital games.

It's very much a work in progress. At the moment I'm garnering feedback on this build, once I've had enough time I'll come back to it with a fresh perspective, new ideas, and give it a rework.

The beach is the ending.

I'm almost always disappointed with museum, gallery, painting... content and environment. As if video game was a child in search of legitimacy which have to use some formal conventions that don't fit to it. Here is a good surprise ! You use it as a pedagogical experience gathering datas, reflexions around your theme and bring us interesting questions : that's what exhibitions are for ! I think your going well with this creation. For now it proposes a self-explanation of the genre that lead to the "gaming" experience, I hope you will find the right way to shape this route cause it could be such a great one ! ( btw, sorry for my english, i'm french :D . Also I didn't encounter any performance trouble.)

EDIT: performance is pretty bad on my computer, like 6 fps or so, when other Unity games run just fine..

I'm not too surprised, it's crazy unoptimized. That's gonna be a big focus for the next release. Thanks for checking it out!
