Description

Totem Teller is about discovering things alone. Explore a beautifully broken world of stories. Truth is in the Telling.

History

Totem Teller started as an idea for onegameamonth.com (#1GAM). Ben and Jerry soon realized what they wanted to build was way beyond that single month scope. Almost 2 years later they started full-time on the project.

Features

  • Guide the Teller on a solitary journey of story archaeology.
  • Freely explore a world without prompts or set objectives.
  • Retell stories. Restore a world. Make a new mythology.
  • Resolve glitches and retrieve corrupted story to reveal secrets.
  • Storybook visuals and mellow, ethereal sounds disrupted by crunchy glitch effects.
  • Take your time. Lose yourself something both broken and beautiful.
