Wanderlust: Travel Stories is an anthology of interactive travel literature, inspired by true stories and set in real places. Step into the shoes of modern travelers—explore their desires, hopes and fears, and shape how their stories unfold.
In a bar, on the world’s most remote island, a group of strangers share their stories. This collection of playable novels lets you experience travel from distinct perspectives—but the course of each journey depends on your choices.
Four novellas and five short stories, each written by its own team of authors. Every journey offers a unique playstyle, as you experience travel through different eyes: an idealistic student, a jaded reporter, or a man who’s simply a terrible planner.
It is a bridge between literature and gaming, an experimental format for those who seek the new and unusual. Minimalistic aesthetic, bespoke photography, and immersive soundscapes set the tone. Just enough to stir your own memories or feed the imagination.
Wanderlust: Travel Stories was inspired by real-life experiences and set in real places. Created by a team of passionate travelers, seasoned reporters, artists, and game makers, this interactive literature shows a world they saw throughout their journeys.
Your choices shape the characters’ mood. This, in turn, changes how you see the world. Feelings color perception. All emotions are valid: happiness or enthusiasm aren’t everything, feeling sad or fatigued is perfectly natural.
“Melancholic and hypnotic. It softly swept me away and gently blew my mind.”
“More than the sum of its parts.”
“An unusual and bold concept of a game based on the literature of the road.”
Introducing Slow Gaming
Our goal is not to challenge skills and reflexes, but assumptions and feelings. Slow Games allow you to experience them at your own pace—and grow. They are not designed as toys. They are tales of common human experience.
If this is what you seek, check out our Slow Gaming Manifesto.
It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. Still, you get to experience some wondrous locations from the mysterious statues of Easter Island, through the bustling streets of Bangkok and the vast pristine expanses of the Antarctic, to the grasslands of the Serengeti.
