Areia is a game about emotions and spiritual growth, an adventure with puzzle elements. It is a tale of wonder in a land inhabited by only one character. Sand and water are the two elements shaping this uniquely crafted world. And, with the relationship between character and environment, you can traverse this world by creating your own path.




Imagine a world where you can control sand and water to create paths and shape your surroundings.

All of this in a universe that is always trying to repeat itself, this is Areia, a journey of emotions in search of enlightenment.

Areia borrows a lot from oriental spiritual culture, especially Hinduism and Buddhism the story unfolds by its premises as well. The game has emotional and spiritual stages of enlightenment in which you will need to face to uncover the mysteries of this world.

The scenery of Areia is a composition of a Biome of coastal dunes with large patches of sand, water, cliffs, and caverns. You will never be bored while discovering new places in Areia.
