There's no good choice here., November 5, 2023

Related reviews: ectocomp, barebonesjam

This game might be short and concise, but it is quite well-written, impactful and heartbreaking. From the start, there is something not quite right with your son's interruption of your sleep, even if it is a yearly occurrence. Things just don't quite fit all to well, especially when your daughter appears or when the mother is mentioned (in hindsight... 🥴). But is is not clear until the end what is truly going on here. What seems at first like a slice-of-life with some spooky halloween aspect, turns downright terrifying. The reveal is not only depressing to internalise, but the implications are frankly hitting much harder than what you'd expect from the blurb and warnings. The final choice is, again, heartbreaking, whichever way you choose...

A heartwrenching story of saving a child, November 24, 2023
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

This is an Ink game entered into Ectocomp, written in 4 hours or less.

It's story-focused, with a well-written tale about a father who has to get up in the middle of the night to help his son get to sleep.

The emphasis in this story is on details and emotions. Little reactions from people, the way that your mind picks out different things, the emotions that don't quite match up with what you'd expect.

There are multiple endings, which is interesting, but I didn't replay because I found mine satisfactory.

A sad game, but a good game.
