2016 was strangely beautiful in its own turbulent way. I was commuting accross London on the Overground every day, from Stratford to Gunnesbury - it would take me 2 hours to get to work. The routine started to take it's toll on my mental health but my sketchbook flourished with drawings of all the passengers that travelled with me. Now, as I look back through the pages of my notebook, I've come to appreciate at just how beautiful and diverse London is as witnessed on the Overground.

This is an autobiographical flatgame of how I remember the commute on the London Overground. All commuters are real people that have travelled with me and I happened to sketch them with a pen in my notebook. Make sure to turn on the volume to listen to Annabelle Godbold's wonderful music!

Each person has their own story.

Loved it! Thank you Rosa.

The sketches in your flatgame are really something beautiful. I love the urban, even kind of diversive vibe you transported with this - the atmosphere absolutely reminds me of the my rides in the subways in Berlin. No face seems to be the same as another one, you can really think about what each person in there might be thinking about. It's wonderful. Thank you very much for that, happily I wrote a bit about your game in one of our compilation articles about the FLATGAME Annual 2016, as you already know, and included it in the related showcase video. :) Keep up your great work, I'm looking forward to see more game projects from you in the future!

Best wishes,

Wow, this is beautiful! :)

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it. :)
