Sym is a puzzle-platformer that explores social anxiety disorder. Play as Josh, a teenage boy trying to reconcile a maze of two contrasting worlds that coexist within the blank spaces of each other - his perception of reality, and the world he created to avoid his fears.

Josh exists in these worlds as alter egos, Caleb and Ammiel. Caleb lives only in the white world, on the fringe of reality. He wants to overcome his fears. Ammiel resides in the darkness; he wants only to be alone and completely detached from human contact.

Take control of these egos and flip between both realms to solve problems and traverse obstacles. Learn to utilize both distinct spaces, to avoid obstacles and find a path to safety.
  • Explore 44 challenging levels of logic puzzles, platforming and mazes.
  • Switch between worlds of light and darkness to overcome obstacles and find the way forward.
  • Create and share new levels easily with the level editor.
  • A Shared World allows players to connect the doorways in their creations to the levels built by others.

  1. Not interesting
    by NorthernSpruce, Canada - Jun 13th 2016

    A side-scrolling platform game, black and white. You play as one of two aspects of the main character (you can flip back and forth easily and you have to in order to navigate the game); depending on the role you have at any given time, gravity is either normal or reversed, and you have access to different parts of the game's world. I found it to be mostly variations on jumping from one place to another and trying not to get chewed up by buzz saws. It's supposed to be about social anxiety disorder, which I found a very appealing premise, but the connection to mental health seemed pretty tenuous to me.
