Not really a game, but nicely done, October 11, 2022

This is effectively a short story told through emails and press clippings. The role of the "player" is simply to read through them, following links within them to more short pieces of text. Reading through everything available causes the next email to come through with new pieces to read.

It's very slickly done. The music is atmospheric, and the pixellated art that accompanies the text does a good job of hinting without ever really revealing. The story behind it all is a simple one of space exploration gone wrong and its horrific after-effects.

So overall, some atmospheric writing and a short story told via "found" materials. It is very short, and there's no interactivity beyond simply clicking on the various links, but what's here is well done.
