It began with the mute boy in the deep well...

Katara is a narrative platformer about a mute boy trying to climb out of a well in which he has been imprisoned. As players climb higher and higher, they gradually unravel the mystery of the well, the boy, and a tragic curse that threatens the world.

Leap between cliff edges and moving platforms, solve complex door puzzles, navigate a stone labyrinth, and use dead bodies as footstools. The boy's ascendance out of the well is a harrowing one.

Katara features a voiceover narration and two distinct endings.

How to Play:

Right Arrow = Right

Left Arrow = Left

This looks simplistic but plays well and has a great story to it. Lots of imagination work but the voice acting and the music totally make that possible. Very cool... :)
