The title may not sound an obvious one for an eerie and evocative tale, but it's a really resonant & archetypal one.
Taking you back to an age of childhood sleepovers, perspectives and rumours, you begin immersed in simple, mundane decisions and tasks... The beauty of the game is its iconic simplicity, not overcomplicating itself as the magic of its underlying and original story creeps into the fore.
I've always found that eerie stories with a childhood setting well-told can really effectively regress you to a mindset when things that might be unbelieveable now seemed all-too credible, of the schoolyard lore and the folklore of youth.
It's short to run through once, but you've barely uncovered any of it by then - you'll keep coming back to discover the others endings.
A simple, iconic and really original eerie tale.
