This game is genuinely creepy in many of its parts. It has gorgeous css and html styling, with nice background music.
You play a police officer investigating the disappearance of a shut-in. As you enter his home, you discover more and more about his history and his solitary life, as well as interacting with a variety of candles.
Everything worked well for me in this game; it was effective and well styled.
Short, but quite atmospheric twine game, in which you're trying to solve the mystery around a person of the name Edward West, who has been missing by his neighbor. There could've been a little more consequences to my actions, but as it was an entry to a speed-if competition, I see, why it's relatively limited.
Quite an achievement, January 26, 2015
A lovely, creepy Lovecraftian tale with some great alternative endings. Quite an achievement for three hours' work!
