Don’t like visual novels? Great, me neither. I have a short ass attention span and aren’t that interested in anime tropes. But this cutesy-looking VN was tagged as “psychological horror” on Steam and that’s something that I am all about.

I can’t go into much detail without spoiling some very good storytelling but this game has a total of three content warnings before it even starts. That’s how real this shit is.

It’s a short play overall, it’s a bit of a slow roll to get going, something I’m not a fan of in games. But horror is one of the few genres where this approach works wonders and it really does so here.

Holy shit.
