The "Choice Of Games" house-style is to start every story with a character-creator where you define their name, gender, sexuality and other traits. Cabin in the Forest takes things a step further, with a whole Myers-Brigg personality test being only the beginning of the detailed character-creation choices you have to make. I was expecting the resulting story to be something like the first vignette from Several Other Tales from Castle Balderstone, but things don't turn out like that at all... A wicked subversion of expectations, mischievous, malicious and magnificent. Almost Discordian in its chaotic outlook. Play it!
This is an interesting short game. You have to create a character to run through a short horror story.
But the narrator, Pallas, wants your creation to be incredibly detailed. While each choice has narrow options (as commented on by the narrator), there are many options to be had before the impending disaster.
I liked it. Near the middle, I started clicking fast through several similar/repetitive options, but I think that's part of the experience.
The game overall seems well polished for something made in less than 4 hours. The emotional moments didn't 100% land for me, but it was good overall.
Playing this game was a truly horrifying experience. I’m afraid I can’t say more; the memories are too painful…
