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.

Features

  • A (twisted) love letter to the adventure game community
  • Over 40 contributors provided their wit and talents
  • Extremely depressive mood, and a bit of fear here and there
  • A haunting story that will challenge your intellect (and temerity)
  • Amazing voice acting by legendary adventure game designer Josh Mandel
  • More awesome acting by popular video producer Pushing Up Roses
  • Yet another overwhelmingly astonishing surprise cameo by an ex-designer from Sierra!
  • Did we mention the gut-wrenching atmosphere?

I played this game one day when my internet cut out. It was pretty great, although it only took 10-15 minutes to complete. The story is interesting, but I got stuck once because I wasn't clicking on the right things. If you do get stuck, just click on everything in the house until new dialogue is available. This is a point and click story game. It's very simple, but enjoyable if you don't have anything better to do.

(Unfortunately I played this game in offline mode, so I had to leave it open while afk so I could write a review. My in-game hours are not accurate for this game.)

Also some of the dialogue is entertaining if you go afk for a minute or two.

My Grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, 'If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately.'. Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- 'Don't ever smoke. Please don't put your family through what your Grandfather put us through." I agreed. At 28, I have never touched a cigarette. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because this game gave me cancer anyway. On a serious note though, the game keeps crashing.

It wasn't interesting. I expect bad free games but this was just, wow. The ending was so bland and maybe I'm desensitized but the only horror in this game is the realization that I actually played it.

Its a nice little adventure game. I found the story quite foreseeable but that did not take away from my joy playing. I found it really atmospheric, very good voice acting indeed, nice music, beautiful graphics. It did run smoothly and without any problems on my linux mint system. And it's free. What else is there to say - this is a clear recommend!

I predicted the end! Until I didn't. o.O Don't hit escape, it takes you totally out of the game and you have to start over, but that's okay, it allowed me to catch stuff I missed the first time.

This game is good, it has both it's pros and it's cons

Pros
- Graphics are decent
- It actually makes you look around before getting into things
- It gives you the items you need to look at
- The Narrator for the charecter did very well on voice acting


Cons
- Not much entertainment
- Takes too long to be able to leave the cabin
- Most people who are used to thrills and excitement won't really like this game


I wouldn't usually like these games but this one just has that type of feel that It's really good.


My rating is a 7/10

My god, I absolutely loved this game. However I found that for the ending, it wasn't as thrilling as I hoped it to be. Hey, I have a higher scare tolerance then most people, so it's not just the game. You guys did excellent, and here's how to help other people playing this game.

- First off, time-based. Every now and then you'll hear the clock chime, that signals an event being activated.
-Secondly, this story is amazing. I was on edge the entire time!
-Lastly, Don't just exit out after five, ten minutes. When you hear the clock chime, the story progresses.

I'm really glad I picked this off and played it. Really good game and I'd definitely buy a game from these developers in collaboration if they wanted money for a game!

A very enjoyable and evocative game.
Like reading a book, but better. Great visuals. Nice voiceacting and music that helps setting the mood. Last but not least, exciting yet horrific story about love and anger.
Enjoy it!

Oh, and last thing. No jumpscares.

This is a decent story based game. It was a little slow for my taste but the price was right.
