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.
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?
