Old Man’s Journey

Game made by Bro­ken Rules


Old Man’s Jour­ney, a soul-searching puz­zle adven­ture, tells a story of life, loss, and hope. Ent­ren­ched in a beau­ti­fully sun­kis­sed and hand­craf­ted world, embark on a heart­felt jour­ney inter­wo­ven with ligh­the­ar­ted and pressure-free puz­zle sol­ving.

A visual nar­ra­tive about life’s pre­cious moments, bro­ken dreams, and chan­ged plans, unco­ver sto­ries of the old man’s life told through beau­ti­ful vignet­tes of his memo­ries. Inter­ac­ting with the serene and whim­si­cal environ­ment, solve play­ful puz­zles by shaping the land­scape, and gro­wing the hills to create the old man’s path for­ward. Find your­self trans­por­ted to a vibrant and medi­ta­tively delight­ful world as you immerse your­self in inqui­si­tive puz­zles, and explore the com­ple­xi­ties of hear­t­a­che, regret, and hope through the old man’s eyes.

Built with inten­tion, soul, honesty, and candor, the relata­ble story of Old Man’s Jour­ney was desi­gned to show­case uni­ver­sal truths that trans­cend across cul­tures and the many sta­ges of life. The team behind the game, Felix and Cle­mens of Bro­ken Rules, were inspi­red to create the Old Man’s Jour­ney upon strugg­ling to find balance in their own lives bet­ween family, career, and fol­lo­wing their dreams. A con­cept that emo­tio­nally con­nec­ted with them and they belie­ved would reso­nate with many, they sought out to take play­ers on a heart­felt expe­ri­ence of reflec­tion, told through the tou­ch­ing life story of an old man. They’ve worked tire­lessly to com­bine the rich, hand­craf­ted world, inqui­si­tive puz­zles, and heart­felt nar­ra­tive of the old man’s unful­fil­led pro­mi­ses and rea­li­zed dreams into what they believe is a tim­e­l­essly relata­ble experience.
