Play OverviewPlay Overview

Toem (2021) is a small adventure about helping people. You play a small figure travelling through black and white, hand-drawn, Scandinavian-style landscapes. As you encounter characters and architectural environments you hear about the problems people have and can help them out.

One of the main interactions is taking photos which uncover more information about each location and fill your photo book. You can also go fishing, listen to calm music, travel by bus, and climb mountains.

It’s a game "which encourages you to stop and smell the flowers", say the developers. The combination of the simple aesthetic and the need to take your time listening to what people say, promise to make this not only a relaxing but satisfying way to while away some hours.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Toem 4 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 3 months ago.
