At the beginning of the game, your princess gives you an ultimatum: you have the night to think and make a decision, will you finally agree to have a child? It has been too long since you hesitate and leave it in uncertainty.

It will be necessary to return to certain troubling moments of your past to finally be able to face your fears and to give your answer… Keys of a gamespace is one of the first games to have explored the question of the autobiography videoludic and was a first experimentation around the concept of expressive game. For example, the following works have been references for our project: Mystic River, EraserHead, Twin Peaks, A Faraway District, Black Hole. To be accessible to the greatest number, this game is distributed free of charge.
