Editorial Reviews

Gabriel Murray
Short, direct, and effective
[...]the real suspense and tension of the game is in scrabbling past your obstacles while the inevitable creeps ever closer. The stakes are extremely high and your desperation is palpable.

Short, tense and visceral, December 2, 2016
by Owlor (Sweden)
This game accomplishes a lot in a very small space. It makes use of the Selkie myth to establish motivation fast and the bulk of the story is a tensely narrated escape sequence that I found very engaging. I really liked the mechanics of shapeshifting in this and how its described in a visceral way. This is a great read if you like the sort of vignettes Ectocomp tends to produce and I'd also recommend it for people looking to write for Sub-Q as it shows how you can tell a great story in the small wordcount provided.
