Bata
2.5D Video Game
Bata is a 2.5D platformer video game about helping a child deal with their emotions. The child's emotional essence has hardened and gave birth to emotions that reflect their inner turmoil. Navigate through the child's mind and decide for yourself how to deal with their emotions. Do you decide to embrace these emotions, or quell them.
