Walden, a Game


“Your inspiration has become low, but can be regained by reading, attending to sounds of life in the distance, enjoying solitude...” Walden, a Game is a video game inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s time spent in solitude and reflection at Walden Pond. The goal is to achieve a well-balanced way of life by completing simple activities such as fishing, foraging, reading and writing, and communing with the natural environment.
