Detailed and Fun, January 9, 2021
by Ogre (A Cave)

This is a really fun story, despite it being a horror. The author writes quite well and also lets you know when you're making a critical choice as opposed to one that's not going to have as much as an effect. While some people won't like that breaking of immersion, I find in this case it is quite nice and informative. And there are enough options and choices that you can really feel like you're playing a different story each time, which makes the replayability score high.
