Arise: A Simple Story is a platform-enriched adventure game. The production was developed by the independent team of Piccolo Studio, while release was taken by Techland Publishing, whose portfolio includes Torment: Tides of Numenera.


Arise: A Simple Story starts off unusually, because it's... the funeral of the main character. After all, the protagonist wakes up in the hereafter, where in the distance a mountain with a mysterious light on top is appearing. Our protégé decides to head towards it, observing the changing landscape along the way, which is a metaphor for his own past full of both happy and sad moments.


In Arise: A Simple Story we observe the action from various perspectives. We travel through a diverse world; the hero hits grassy plains, dense forests and snow-covered mountain peaks, among other things. During the journey we encounter terrain obstacles, the overcoming of which requires, for example, jumping on platforms (their role is played by overgrown flowers) or climbing on a high cliff. Besides, there are also simple environmental puzzles (such as creating a temporary bridge from a fallen tree trunk) or puzzles based on time manipulation.

Technical aspects
