About the Story
She will never lie to you.
Orestes Drunk and Pylades Fasting
The horror in The Tunnel is translucent metaphor: (Spoiler - click to show)being trapped within an endless tunnel (which is not much of a spoiler), while indeed claustrophobic in a literal sense, also involves the claustrophobia of Katrina and Gregory’s relationship, and even more so, of being in Katrina’s head, the suffocating limitations of perspective.

This is a SubQ magazine game that has a pleasing atmosphere. It has graphics and background noise.
You are on a train with your significant other. It's going through a long tunnel. There are a few other people on the train. It's a moody and introspective piece.
I could go into more detail, but playing the game does not take much longer than reading this review, so why not just try it?
Tunnel Vision, December 12, 2016
The Tunnel comes across as an intensely personal meditation on the subject of depression. It's intriguing, but the closed off demeanor of the protagonist means that the other characters in the narrative remain more or less ciphers, and though we are invited to fill in the blanks from our own imagination, we're not given much incentive to do so. As a player, there isn't a lot to do, and my feeling is that this story would have worked just as well as static fiction. The multimedia effects add interest but the text sometimes faded off slightly too quickly forcing me to refresh the page in order to finish reading.
