Yet, life finds its way through the darkness, and by filling the shell, sparks a light. With the light comes a sound, and the waves of this communion propagate in all directions.

    A new being sets out and follows their lead to discover a world of wonders and witness life unfolding on its way.

    Will the wee creature get through the dark spaces to find that it is darkness that makes light really shine?

    Catch a wave in this smooth sound-surfing platformer: Let ethereal tunes carry you fluidly through serene abstract landscapes, tune into soothing sound spheres and revel in a meditative journey of life.

    An original platforming experience, Onde combines a bold, fresh visual style, gratifying traversal mechanics and a fantastic soundtrack into a very satisfying game. A few rough edges are the only blemish on a unique game that’s worthy of your attention.

    Onde is a different puzzle platform, one of those video games capable of capturing the player's attention for three hours and projecting it into his two-dimensional world. His genius lies in the flawless management of his single mechanic, which is gradually overturned and transformed to make the game more and more satisfying. Onde is a journey into the eternal cycle of life and death in the universe, a journey to be made by surfing on waves of light while being lulled by its splendid soundtrack.

    Onde offers pleasantly fluid gameplay at a calming pace and an interesting movement system, but I feel the elements of danger are completely unnecessary, as they clash with the game’s atmosphere and relaxing nature.

    If you come to Onde looking for a typical puzzle platformer or a rhythm game, you might find yourself disappointed. But take it for what it is—a game that takes pieces of the above, and uses them to drive an atmospheric, sensory experience of colour and sound—and you’ll find something worthwhile. Some rough edges and odd design decisions hold it back a little, but it’s a game that certainly leaves a lasting impression.
