Elemental Flow is a role-playing game (RPG) with conversation encounters instead of battles. Players explore photography-based environments in a fictional world, learning more about each culture's hardships from its residents. Encounters are active and involve the player using a variety of abilities with the right timing and execution. Abilities correspond to one or more elements (fire, water, air, earth) and can involve talking, listening or thinking, all the while letting the other person express themselves as well, until you both reach an understanding.
Elemental Flow aims to uphold what many people love about RPGs (high levels of customisation, interesting worlds to inhabit, characters to meet and encounters with varying challenge levels) while housing a different kind of story – one that doesn't centre on violence, but rather on communicating with others.
