Reviews

“Delicious! What a ghastly little gem.”
Eurogamer

“The game tells a story in its two to three hours of play about the desperate deeds to which passion, grief and anger can drive us. This combination of personal strokes of fate and societal forces results in an unbelievably coherent overall picture, which I have rarely experienced in video games.”
Game Curator

“The story is mysterious and engaging [...] And the issues it confronts are serious and real. All in all, If On A Winter’s Night, Four Travelers might be one of the best narrative horror experiences you can get.”
DreadXP

About This Game

Four strangers. A train. A masked ball. A tale of dark and troubling things in four acts.

THE SILENT ROOM

In a luxurious hotel room in Rome, freshly arrived from Turin, Carlo awaits for his lover Patrick to arrive. However, as the shadow of fascism looms ever larger, the tension of meeting in constant hiding is beginning to take its toll.

THE SLOW VANISHING OF LADY WINTERBOURNE

Lady Winterbourne has lost her husband in a tragic accident. Now letters from pretenders to her vast fortune keep arriving every day at her mansion, yet the only thing she's interested in is the bottle of laudanum in her cabinet.

THE NAMELESS RITUAL

Harassed, ridiculed and belittled by his peers, Dr. Jordan Samuels has resorted to the occult sciences in a desperate attempt to turn the tables on his tormentors. But is he truly ready to face the Guardian of the Threshold?

IF ON A WINTER'S NIGHT

As much as Laylah enjoys her job, sometimes she yearns for a bit of variety to distract her from her daily routine -- even if it means going against her very powerful bosses' orders.
