Proud entry in the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality 2020.
In this game you and your friends play the role of characters in a very specific kind of horror story: normal and rational people, in a normal and rational world, that slowly starts to feel increasingly wrong and unsafe and disturbing, in a crescendo that will lead to a horrific epilogue.
This kind of horror focuses less on gore and violence, and more on unease and dread. Depending on your reactions to the game’s inputs and twists you will experience a story reminiscent of some madness inducing H. P. Lovecraft novels, or rather akin to some psychedelic body-horror Clive Barker short stories. Either way, you play as the unfortunate protagonist of one such narrative.
Not everything will be nice and tidy by the end of the game. Questions might still linger unanswered, details might still feel odd and out of place, but overall your journey will be at an end, offering a degree of closure, in the vein of movies such as The Shining, Jacob’s Ladder, The Wicker Man, The Others, and more.
