Samsara Interactive is a mythological surrealist fever dream. The player is tasked with restoring balance to the universe and traverses a bizarre series of rooms searching for enlightenment. There is not a lot that makes sense, but there are many strange and incongruent characters to help guide you through your journey. 

This game is strange and disturbing.

A game by Ryan Liddle and Josef Frank.


  • Gently flashing lights.
  • Depictions of religious figures.
  • Apocalyptic vibes.
  • Mild swearing.

The Samsara Interactive OST is available for download on Bandcamp.

Any help with the fire room? Let's say that I found a hidden order, which can't be a coincidence, yet it doesn't work..

Edit2: nvm I solved it by trying every order


For anyone having issues with this room, spoilers ahead...


Each stone tablet is an acrostic, and each acrostic contains a number. That number is which chalice should be filled first (eg. the first tablet is "THREE", so the first chalice that must be filled is the third from the left).

oh my god,

I thought that the first tablet was related to the first chalice, and therefore the acrostic on that table would indicate the position inside our sequence. I didn't think about counting chalices from the left to the right at all, but I considered them related to the positions of the tablets
