Despina is a short game created for my Game Mechanics course at York University, inspired by one of the stories in Invisible Cities by Calvino Italo. Pick whether you want to play the game as a scout trying to escape the crumbling city, or as a sailor, trying to enter the city and rescue your family. Best played with a controller.

Invisible Cities is my favourite book of all time and I immediately recognised the name of the city of Despina. Thank you for appreciating Calvino with your work.


This is an awesome game! Keep up the great work!
