To Leave is an upcoming game from Ecuadorian studio Freaky Creations. It's the studio's first title and has been in development for six years. To Leave tells the tale of Harm, a young man battling mental illness who finds a magical flying door that could help solve many of both his problems and the world's problems.

The protagonist, named Harm, deals with manic depression, and the team wants to portray these difficulties in the gameplay as well. "...To Leave makes use of several points of view and game-genres to convey that experience," writes creative director  Estefano Palacios T. on the PlayStation Blog.

Much of the gameplay consists of you navigating through dreamlike sequences, where Harm holds onto the flying door for dear life as you navigate him through obstacles. You can view the trailer below.

To Leave releases on PlayStation 4 very soon, on April 24. A PC version is also in the works, but it does not yet have a release date.
