About This Game


is an atmospheric horror visual novel about surviving life or death situations in a miserable world. It features a dark storyline, timed choices, and life or death scenarios that you must navigate to the best of your ability.


Lizzy is a young girl living in a place called “The Boarding”, a run down town that’s walled away from an impenetrable fog. All who live here live to serve the mysterious Mother Matron, whom everyone reveres as their own parent and leader. The Mother Matron tasks Lizzy and two boys, named Pux and Rich, to explore The Crepuscule which lies underneath. Few have ever returned, and the ones that have are changed forever into insane blubbering wrecks. With their hearts full of trepidation, the three descend into the depths…

Using your wits and quick thinking, you must try to guide Lizzy and her friends through the dangers awaiting within The Crepuscule. Can you survive? Can you uncover the secrets of The Boarding and the Mother Matron? Or will you be lost to the dark forever?
