A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Made during the 48 hour Splash Jam 2016, ARDO was an ambitious undertaking and as such, is presented more as a proof-of-concept.

Created by Skully, Gemma, Rikke, Bendik and Almut, ARDO aims to communicate to the player the anxiety that can be experienced when you're in a culture completely alien to you.

The demo presents the player in two situations:

  1. A stranger starting a conversation with you on the street
  2. Trying to purchase bread from a bakery

The player must try to work out what is being said. The more that you struggle to communicate, the more anxious you will become.
