ABOUT THE GAME

Tape is a first-person psychological thriller set in the north of Spain in the 1990s where players will be able to use time to their advantage.

The game will challenge players to use the rewind mechanic to solve puzzles, escape the nightmares that inhabit Iria's memories while exploring an eerie location heavily influenced by her dad's work in the past. 

Tape algo pays tribute to some cinema and TV show classics through its environment and its storytelling. You can find some examples below or take a thorough look at further references in this link.
