“For something that was supposed to be a side-project as a break from the larger game, there is just SO much going on in here, with the most extraordinary detail in every room.”

About This Game



"Over, and over again... It'll never end."

Premise

Part of the "Faceless Short Stories", The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story follows the journey of a young man named Wyatt Heyll, who, from a very young age, has been stricken with a multitude of ailments, cancers and illnesses. On the verge of death, his parents gave him a paranormal substance known as the Sorrowvirus, which contaminates the human soul; preventing it from passing onto the afterlife when they die.

This causes them to fall to Purgatory instead, where they can heal and eventually return to life. However, every time Wyatt comes back to life, his cancers and illnesses return quicker than before. Wyatt's parents allow him to continue dying over and over while they perform research on organic particles found in Purgatory that may cure him once and for all.

Gameplay

Wyatt, having died so many times, simply wants to let go; both his mind and soul are shattered. Your objective is to set Wyatt free from his everlasting torment. With four endings in sight, only one is the true ending, will you endeavour to help Wyatt set himself free?

The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story is a First-Person Story Adventure designed to be played in one sitting that lasts approximately 45-60 minutes. There are no save points. However, the game will remember how many times you've completed it; causing the game's dialogue, environments and difficulty to change while you discover the other endings. To experience the game in its entirety, all four instances should be played! Breaks can be taken in-between instances, as the game remembers how many times you've completed it.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

The Sorrowvirus: A Faceless Short Story contains mature content that deals with references to difficult psychological matters relating to, but not limited to death, suicide and euthanasia. A portion of the short story includes strong profanity.
