A downloadable game for Windows and macOS


"A friend going to the city gives me the chance to write to you again. I don't know if you received my previous letters. Here I am, without being able to communicate with anyone in the world."

Images and stories from the journey of a man adrift. Cartas is based on a couple of letters that were written by inmigrants at the end of the 19th century in Argentina. It was first made in a few weeks for the Correspondence Jam: Make a game about, involving or using instant messages, email, letters, etc

Cartas was part of the 2016 tinypalace exhibition in Kassel, Germany. It was also featured on KillScreenRock Paper Shotgun and Warpdoor.

Cartas ENG is the final version of the game in English and Spanish.

Cartas ITA is the final version of the game in Italian.

JAM Cartas is the jam version of the game, and it's unpolished.

Cartas is free, but if you enjoy it please consider supporting my work with a donation.

What did you use to make the art and program this game?

Nothing special, just Unity and modelling and video-editing softwares.
