There's a constant sense of psycho-emotional drain that permeates this exceptional IF piece. I found myself being worn down by a relentless prey and wanting so desperately to fight it off. It's a great experience with a great twist on the nature of memory in times of trauma that I will not spoil for you. Give your nightmare fuel a favor and read it!

This is effective, similar to the early mind manipulation episodes of Dr Who before it became ridiculous.
The Sub Q release has beautiful illustrations that contribute significantly to the feel of the game.
My favorite Sub Q game to this date. Strongly recommended.
