What a sight!, August 25, 2015

In this visually compelling work, you are a psychic detective called to the side of a body. A familiar body. What happened to it?

The strongest point of this game has to be the brilliant use of the visual interface that Twine offers. (Spoiler - click to show)I thought the cutscenes right up near the beginning, as well as the moment when you open your eyes in the body, were great. It suits the style of his economical writing and added to the atmosphere of the game. A pity it was so short, though; the story appears to be rich in unspoken backstory.

Your third sentence is a total spoiler. Any chance you could tag it?

Ah! Sorry about that.

I actually meant literally your third sentence. (Spoiler - click to show)"The body you used to inhabit." This is something that's not revealed in game until the fourth or fifth page of solid text, but, more importantly, that the author skirts around in the blurb (so obviously doesn't want known by the player from the start).

Why not just remove that bit? The review reads just as well without it.
