Eerie and Powerful, May 2, 2016

"It's like an interactive episode of The Twilight Zone" is a line that probably doesn't do Shade justice, but it's something I always say when I'm recommending it to anyone—it's about TV episode-length, really grippingly weird as you're playing it, and something you'll still be thinking about years later. Shade is always the first game I bring up whenever I'm introducing someone to IF, and it's one of my favorite pieces of weird fiction—in any medium.

Spot on with the analogy, that's exactly what it reminded me of. It just needs Rod Serling at the start and end and I'd give it a fifth star (6th if I could!)
