Social Anxiety-Inspired Platformer ‘Sym’ Gets First Trailer and Demo

One of the more interesting trends in gaming lately is that more developer seem willing to delve into matters dealing with mental disorders. Developer ATRAX Games is one of these as they’re working on a puzzler platformer by the name of Sym.

Sym is themed around social anxiety disorder as the teenage protagonist finds himself bound by anxiety. He must shift between two worlds via alter egos Caleb and Ammiel. Both characters cannot exist at once which will lend itself to puzzling gameplay aspects. Visually, the worlds are painted in a stark black and white and seem frightening.

You can take a look at the trailer to see if Sym intrigues you. If so, consider checking out the demo prior to its Steam release.
