IF with little interaction, June 2, 2018
A retelling of Orpheus and Euydice with a tinge of horror , February 3, 2016
The beginning diverges sharply from the original narrative, owing more to Our Angelical Understanding than to the ancient poets. As the game continues, though, it draws nearer, until it reaches the same endless feeling of the original at the end.
The game includes some body horror, such as pre-modern-medicine surgery, deformed corpses, etc. It's roughly similar to the amount of horror in the film What Dreams May Come.
Overall, an effective piece.
