my father's long, long legs by michael lutz

A weird tale. Some parts make use of sound, so this game is best played with headphones. One ending.

Amazing, suspenseful, and delightfully creepy. Definitely worth playing!

impeccably built suspense - a nightmarish mix of junji ito and neil gaiman's coraline, imbued with that rich soil that builds its core. also... i might never touch a shovel again. more eerie than outright shocking - but then again, you wouldn't use charcoal in the same context as spray paint.

Intriguing and suspenseful.
Would have liked more than the one ending though.

It's been a long time since I've played a text adventure, but I remember most of the horror genre disappointed me. This, however? This was amazing, and was a great game to return to. I got antsy during the later part where we went back into the basement and I can definitely say that's my favourite bit. Fantastic use of sound and visuals and 100% creepy.

My only problem was the black background and white text, which really strained my eyes. But given the gimmick and story of this, I think I can understand why. Although... Maybe light grey text would've been less painful?

Interesting story and exciting narration. The flashlight mechanics were quite unexpected, and that made the experience even more atmospheric. Wonderful work that definitely fits the horror category.

I played this earlier during the day and it definitely deserves the 5 star rating. Very atmospheric.

There were a lot of sophisticated effects, and it was really interesting. It was mildly scary, but for what it is, it really IS.
