About This Game

How long has it been? A man sits in a distant getaway cabin waiting for his wife Serena. Where is she? Things in the cabin evoke memories, and the husband comes to a disturbing realization...

This short point-and-click adventure is the result of a massive collaborative effort between dozens of fans and designers of adventure games. Rallying to support the venerable genre and its passionate community, these developers have brought together a grim and highly detailed horror story in what is the largest, possibly even the first, game project of its kind. Talents include crew from renowned indie companies Senscape, CBE Software, Infamous Quests, Digital Media Workshop, Guys from Andromeda, and many more.

I liked the atmosphere of the game, and it was a very interesting setting and storyline. However, the story took too long to get going; with chitchat monologues about the different pieces of furniture dragging on for too long.

Furthermore, when it finally reached its climax, I think I accidently triggered the ending sequence too early, so I missed some of the potential payoff.

Lastly, the game doesn't have a save feature, so when I pressed the Esc key mid-through, the game immediately quit and I had to replay it from the beginning.

Nice game until you try to find a save feature, press ESC and find out the hard way that the developer thought it was a good idea to bind that key to instantly quit the game.

A short, quite good drama, even if the ending is not clear.

On a side note: don't hit "Esc" if you are not done with the game, because there's no saving feature.

This is one for an English Literature analysis paper. Too bad you can not put a spoiler alert on a review. Anything I would or could say would spoil the narrative.

NOTE: Short and MUST be completed in a single sitting. There is no save feature.

Tough to recommend, but tough not to.

While the assets, art, and animation of this game are very well done, the voice acting was really grating and it was obvious that the female voice actor was reading lines she had never seen before. That would also be acceptable, except that I guessed the ending/plot of this game literally from reading the blurb on the store page. The twist was so predictable that I felt quite disappointed. If you're 12 and have never read any sort of horror or gothic Victorian fiction, you might get a little thrill out of this game. Otherwise, the writing was less than engaging.
