The Imagined Leviathan Asks You to Not Freeze to Death

Free to download on Steam, this short title promises "permadeath and poetry," and, really, what more could one ask for?

If you were searching for that dreadful-experimental-indie-lost-in-the-woods-literary-experience simulator, The Imagined Leviathan might be exactly what you’re looking for.

All humor aside, Far Few Giants latest experimental indie adventure is a 20-minute dive that deals with more themes than its minimalist presentation would otherwise suggest.

In a “future” where climate change has decimated the United Kingdom (to paraphrase Cory Doctorow, such speculative fictional settings ought to be warnings!) The Imagined Leviathan tasks players with surviving a bleak and punishing wilderness, managing the risk of hypothermia–and all, apparently, while dealing with an ominous presence that may or may not be stalking the player.

The Imagined Leviathan is the latest from the creative duo known as Far Few Giants, who’ve also published other short, experimental titles such as The Night Fisherman and The Outcast Lovers. Their next title, Ring of Fire, is slated for a December release, with a playable prologue available now.
