Atmospheric puzzle platformer that draws you in with its great hand drawn pencil artstyle and fantastic animations. The puzzles arent particularly inventive, but its easy to get invested into the psychological situation of the main character diving in and out of his fantasy world due to its fantastic atmosphere. Its simple and you mostly do some walking in the game, but if mood and contemplation are aspects that are high on your priority list, this would definitely be worth checking out. 3,5/5
Gorgeous visual style, and a really interesting approach to grief! Thanks for all the hard work!
Quite a grim experiment, but the research goal is significant.
The soul wanders in the dark in search of a cure (or oblivion?).
Themed puzzles, the search for pills, endless staircases, cute conversations with a doctor, distorted sketches of consciousness and statues of mechanical birds - an impression in the Gothic style.
Passed in Steam. An ambiguous impression leaves after the end of the game. The boat is found, but this is not a happy ending.
PS: Played the first day - even more stairs, a music puzzle, a visit to the doctor. The style and graphics are great.
"Weevil" came for a short time and locked his demons in cages, promising to return in full embodiment.
