About the Story

A Scots fantasia about anxiety

Featuring kelpies, lost keys, mysteriously-lit underground caverns, boring work, panic attacks and red hair.

Raik is written in Scots, one of the languages of Scotland, with a full integrated translation into English. An earlier version was entered into the 2014 Interactive Fiction competition: this is a full expanded edition, twice the size, with additional features and more bad jokes about celtic fantasy and Scottish independence.

Average playtime: 25 minutes for a full playthrough, 90 minutes to read everything on multiple playthroughs.
