Off-Site Reviews

Leadlight: Creepy, awesome 'Silent Hill'-style interactive fiction.
Leadlight casts players as antisocial Belinda Nettle, an aspiring 15-year old ballerina studying at an all-girls boarding school. She falls asleep in the library one evening, and wakes up to find A) that everything has mysteriously gone to hell and B) the corpse of her classmate sitting in front of her. For fear of spoiling anyone I won't give anything else away, but the story features lots of creepy surprises reminiscent of a good horror flick. This quality writing allows Leadlight to surpass its occasional frustrations. There are lots of traps waiting to instagib poor Belinda, but they're gruesome fun to read and always come with the option to rewind and try again. If you're ever stuck, the handy (and clever!) hint sheet quickly sets you on the right track.
