Cardamom Free Download | Game Overview
Cardamom is an interactive musical where the player, as a cat, becomes involved with the three tenants of a nearby apartment complex.
Each tenant is dealing with their own struggles in regards to work/life balance, and through the player’s interactions can come to realize the error of their ways or descend deeper into their unhealthy lifestyles. The game is similar to a point-and-click adventure game, but being a musical, it is also interspersed with songs from the tenants that lament their hopes and fears at different points during the game.
After the beginning parts of the game, the player gets paired with the tenant they showed the most affection to, who effectively becomes their owner. This tenant is the one who the player can choose to help or hinder in improving their lifestyle. If the player plays their cards right, their tenant may even end up with one of the others!
The game offers multiple endings depending on the player’s actions. Its target audience is middle school children, and its purpose is to draw attention to the importance of having a healthy lifestyle.
