Twisted Ramble Games
Based in Berlin, Germany
Duru is a 2D Puzzle Platformer set in a west-african inspired mole rat colony. While solving puzzles with an AI companion that works with and against them, players follow the story of Tuli, a story about the struggle with insecurities, darkness and friendship. She shows her thoughts in pictures so players can learn about her mental illness on an intuitive level and witness how other mole rats deal with it.
Duru started as spare time project after the founders finished their Game Design studies at HTW Berlin in October 2017. After receiving funding from the Berliner Startup Stipendium in July 2019 the team of Twisted Ramble Games was able to work on the game in full time and with a third team member.

About Twisted Ramble Games
Twisted Ramble Games tell stories about stigmatized topics like mental illness, social constraints and cultural differences. They want to present those topics from different perspectives and strengthen awareness. Thus they give new ways to solve problems and react healthier to difficult situations or persons affected by one of these topics and close the gap between serious games and entertainment.
