About the Story

Nostalgia brought you back to your childhood home where your name was left behind long ago. It's up to you to re-appropriate that name, celebrate the one you have chosen, or encounter something else...

An interactive short story about identity, places to belong and how the search for them can be a little unsettling.

Teaser Epitaph, January 27, 2024
by manonamora
Related reviews: independent release

I Gave You a Key and You Opened the Darkness is the introductory epitaph of a longer project set to be released episodically throughout 2024, named Los Huesos del Cielo, as an archive of the author's thirties in short form IF.

IGYKYOD is a short piece about returning to your former home, now empty and abandoned, reminiscing on your past, one you are forgetting, and identity.

Only branching out at the end towards one of three endings, the piece uses interactive elements to show that disconnect between what is there, what once was, and how lost you seem to be. Memories get darker as you interact with the text, the state of the house more decrepitated, choices questioned. You're here to find something (thought it's not really made explicit).

There is something quite uneasy about rediscovering a place: one your body remembers clearly but your mind does not (want to?). Surreal in its depiction of how uncomfortable it is at time - almost horror-y at some points.

Looking forward to see the other instalments.
