About This Game

Content Warning: The Window Box features mature themes and topics such as emotional abuse. Please keep this in mind when purchasing the game.

Elsa has invited four friends from her college days for a chance to catch up. However, a freak storm rolls, ruining their plans. So instead, they are forced to spend the day inside. It doesn’t take long for them to figure out everything isn’t right with Elsa and maybe even themselves.

Their time together makes them realize they’re not as close as they once thought. Some question their careers and life choices. Others have secrets.

Why did Elsa invite everyone over? Was it to celebrate Sophie’s coming baby? To try and get Paige and Finley back together? To tease Margot?

Wander from room to room as you watch their day unfold. For what is a house but a box with windows?

In Elsa’s home, you’ll encounter all sorts of strange events, such as…

  • Getting trapped in a souffle
  • Meeting strange creatures in a painting
  • Receiving career advice from your B.F.G.
  • Solving puzzles because puzzles are fun

And more!
