Arise: A Simple Story Story:

The game begins very unusually because it is your funeral. You wake up in the hereafter, where you can see a mountain far away from you & a light shows up on top of the mountain. You will choose to reach that light & the land around you will be changing which is a metaphor for your own past full of happy & sad moments.

The game allows you to see action from multiple perspectives. The world of Arise: A Simple Story is diverse. You must cross plains, forests, & snow covered mountain peaks & other landscapes in order to reach light. During adventure you will face different obstacles & you need to overcome them. Also there will be environmental puzzles in your way which must be solved in order to progress. The puzzles are based on time control.


Arise: A Simple Story Gameplay:

Every stage shows an important moment in the protagonist’s life. You can control the movement of character using one analog stick & use the other stick to manipulate time.

Moving right analog stick to the right can let you shift time to different points of the day. The environment of this game alters as you shift from morning to night, & also it alters the position of the sun. The man does not move but everything surrounding him shifts in time. Time control lets you overcome obstacles. For example, you want to jump on top of a mushroom but you can’t reach its top. By shifting time, a snail would appear & you can jump on top of the snail back & then shift time again so that the snail passes by the mushroom & it is time to jump on top of the mushroom.

Another different feature of Arise is that there are no spoken or written words. You can just see visuals & enjoy the music. Visuals & music are the language of Arise.

Arise: A Simple Story is playable in local co-op mode. 1 player moves the character & another player manipulates time in co-op. You can enter or leave co-op (you can switch from 2 players to single player).
