Life leaves the protagonist feeling empty. He constantly feels as if he is drowning in life thanks to his depression. When light finally shines on his miserable life, he begins to swim upwards out of the water that has been leaving him engulfed for so long...

Engulfed is a story told through dialogue and narrative. The main focus is character interaction and how two people can help one another just by existing, even if only recently brought together by fate.


"John Smith" - The name the protagonist provides. He has many faces, but looking in a mirror will show you what he looks like for your playthrough.

"Rose" - The nickname 'John Smith' gives the girl he encounters on a fateful night.


Music is produced by TheOwnedBagel, and more songs from TheOwnedBagel can be heard on his Soundcloud.

Patched the downloads once again. I forgot a music stop tag in the beginning, but it wasn't too immersion breaking as I had one quickly after where I would've designated this new one. Any future downloaders can now enjoy it a bit more.

Sorry everyone for the faulty windows download! I'll be sure to fix that and will be getting this game back online later tonight.
