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.

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.

the true testament of a good horror adventure lies in the fact that the intricacies have stuck with me for over a week
