Play OverviewPlay Overview

A Space For The Unbound (2023) is an adventure about everyday life where you explore your location, chat with people and solve puzzles. Unusually, you do this by stepping into the mind of people you meet and helping them solve their stuck and knotted thought patterns.

The game is set in rural Indonesia during the late 90s and features hand-drawn and animated pixel art. It is a story-driven experience, relaxing but with a hint of suspense, where much of the interaction is with town folks who share their personal stories.

The journey is one of self-discovery, following the relationship of a boy and girl at the end of their high-school years. As they help people get unstuck and move their own lives forwards, they discover supernatural events that begin to threaten their whole existence.

Our examiner, Goran Wallgren, first checked A Space for the Unbound 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 5 weeks ago.

Rated PEGI 16 for prominent use of tobacco. Part of the gameplay involves a high school student obtaining tobacco products for another student, in order to trade for an item to progress the storyline. Once traded, the other student is then depicted smoking. Later scenes also shown other students and adults smoking. The plot touches on a range of sensitive issues, including depression, anxiety, bullying, domestic abuse and attempted suicide. However, the focus in on overcoming these issues. Violence is generally only implied, with characters taking up fighting postures and making gestures towards each other without making clear physical contact. Any implied contact is covered by flash effects. There is a reference to a cat being accidentally run over, although this is not shown. The cat's body can be seen lying on the road after the event. Dialogue includes use of bad language, including 'prick', '*!@?*', '*!@?*', '*!@?*', 'screw' and 'ass'. There are references to alcohol.

Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB TEEN for Fantasy Violence, Language, Use of Tobacco.
