About This Game


“Shh...
Keep quiet...
Don’t say anything.
You have nothing to worry about.
That’s just a monster growling...
The monster inside the closet.
Hehe.
Just kidding.
Alright then...
So you’re not sleepy yet, hm?
In that case, I’ll tell you a scary story.
It’s so scary you might not be able to take it.
It’s the story of the Sand Man...”
