A downloadable game for Windows

Step in Astray, a 2D narrative platformer set in a mystic and weird forest. As you wander in the woods, you will meet Septimus and Ignis, two advocates of the two choices your people are stuck between : staying in the forest or leaving it. As the choicemaker, the choices you make will alter the path you take...

Which one will you choose ?

About Us

We're a two-student team from Metz's master degree in Conception de Dispositifs Ludiques (playful design conception). As part of a course in prototyping a 2D-platformer in Unity, we developped Astray. We also collaborated with Florian Ortega, who drew and animated all of Astray's assets. 

The version presented here is a prototype and is missing the narrative content. We've worked on it but had to stop to work on our studies, so we don't have a playable build of the final version yet. We hope we'll find the time to work on it soon ! 

Game duration : ~5-15 mins

Development : from October 2019 to March 2019 

Team :

  • Lucas Friche  - game design, level design, music, sound design
  • Florentin Peters - game design, programmation, level design, music, UI
  • Florian Ortega - graphic design, animations


Astray is playable with a keyboard or a controller alike, but we recommend playing with a controller.
