Letters – a written adventure is a 2D adventure game with a narrative focus and a word-based mechanic. It tells the coming of age story of Sarah, our protagonist, told through letters she sends to her pen pal.
Players can move through these letters and use words from the text to change the drawings that are scattered throughout. By picking up and throwing a word at a drawing, it transforms accordingly which will then influence the rest of the letter and change the course of the story. Often, however, the correct word has to be created first by removing single letters from an already existing word.
Finding the right words is not always easy so players will need to read between the lines and start to look at words in a whole new way.
