Controls:

This is a mostly keyboard-playable twine game. Where you see a ~, you can press Spacebar to advance, or use the mouse.

In some sections you will be able to play a sub-game. The controls here are the arrow keys to move; however, due to technical issues, this will not be automatically selected, and you will need to click on the game to activate it, then click on the link to the next passage when done. Players unable to use a mouse can skip the passage by pressing the Spacebar as normal.

Pretty deep, dark story and has some nice images to go with it. The depth goes with both the story and the surprising depth of the game as a whole. Those who use space have to go full screen, since the key makes the page move down, but that's not a big problem.

If you're interested, you're welcome to enter our Game Development World Championship, we have a class for jam entries from this year too!

God the writing in this one was so good, esp with the art accompanied by it. I just imagined Silent Hill music the whole time. This is totally a fave from you. Also when I clicked the link to  ChapelR's LinkKey macro , it led to a broken page. Idk if that's Twine or the page itself. Awesome. 5 stars.

thrilled that you like it! thank you for spotting the bug - turns out it only happens on the itchio hosted version and not when tested from my desktop - but I know how to fix it, thankfully, so I'll update that <3
