Relive Armando's memories as he wanders the streets of Oporto

Armando is a bedridden elderly man who had a difficult and interesting life. As he now talks to his grandson, he slowly begins to recall some moments of his life that left on him a sizable emotional mark.

➤ Helena's main purpose is to be an impactful homage to Armando's life, with a great focus on a unique and nostalgic atmosphere.

•  Immerse yourself in an impactful and relatable narrative-driven homage to the life of our game designer's grandfather.

•  Appreciate at your own pace historical and geographical places from the Cais da Ribeira, Oporto, Portugal.

•  Collect hidden objects to help Armando remember his memories.

•  Enjoy the gorgeous atmosphere with hand-drawn art and a stately soundtrack influenced by Portuguese traditional music.


Helena is compatible with most computer keyboards and mousesIt was developed by Rio Studios in collaboration with Trovantina do Collipo for a college project. Any generous contributions will go right towards making our future games more awesome!
