Yet One Word Trailer

Yet One Word is a platformer that makes the player reflect on their lives, actions, and relationships to progress while maneuvering a faceless horned character through a world of perilous platforms. Unlike other platformers the player doesn't directly control the avatar's movement and jumps; instead they command the avatar from platform to platform through typing.

Throughout Yet One Word the avatar will grow and develop to face increasingly dangerous challenges. This growth comes not through defeating enemies or completing objectives, but through the player answering personal, and occasionally uncomfortable, questions.

This is one of the three game series based on Sophocles' Oedipus trilogy. In these games, gameplay mechanics are used to present themes from these plays as metaphors.
