Description

Elemental Flow is a role-playing game (RPG) with conversation encounters instead of battles, whose story centres on finding your voice and exploring relationships. Players explore a modern optimistic world, where technology has developed to coexist with nature and society has evolved in a cooperative direction.

Encounters are active and involve the player using a variety of elemental abilities which involve talking, listening and thinking, with the right timing and execution to carry out a form of symbolic, active conversation. At the same time, the player must observe the patterns and preferences of the other character, adapting and allowing them to express themselves, all with the ultimate goal of reaching a mutual understanding.

Elemental Flow aims to uphold what many people love about RPGs (different abilities to equip, interesting worlds to inhabit, characters to meet and encounters with varying challenge levels) while housing a different kind of story – one that doesn’t centre on violence, but rather on communicating with others.

A demo version of Elemental Flow, called Sofia’s Side Story, is available for free on Itch.

 

History

Tea-Powered games was founded in 2013 by Florencia Minuzzi and Destina Connor, after having finished their PhDs (in mycology and computational neuroscience, respectively) and dabbled in writing and game design. With a desire to bring some of their perspective into a medium they cared about, they started working on Dialogue: A Writer’s Story, which explores both the writing and research process. Their second game, Elemental Flow, uses elemental abilities as a form of symbolic, active conversation, with the ultimate goal of reaching an understanding with other people.
