“One Of 2017's Best Games... It elicits dark feelings, but asks players to consider where those feelings came from and what makes them dark.”

“An approachable and thought-provoking meditation on life’s only certainty.”

“This is a beautiful game. It scared me. It moved me. Most of all, it made me stop what I was doing and think.”
