Chimera Tales

Project Name: Hotel Arcanum

Local Hub: Glasgow Caledonian University


Chimera Tales is a small multinational game development team focusing on narrative-driven game experiences. We think of the medium of video games as an art form to raise questions regarding social, political or historical topics.

About the project

Hotel Arcanum is a 2d, story-driven adventure game about transgenerational Holocaust trauma that merges real historical facts and a dream-like magical world together. Arriving home after years of being abroad, the 28-year-old protagonist realizes that his idealized, perfect family is full of hidden stories and secret memories that still seriously affect all their lives. The game will allow the players to explore the challengingly interconnected family tale told in a hand-drawn art-style on PC and consoles.
