A bare bones speedif about a family curse, June 12, 2016

This is an ectocomps game, so it comes equipped with spare room descriptions and under implemented items.

The overall storyline idea isn't bad, but there wasn't enough time to implement everything fully. There are some well-done secrets, and for me, the highlight of the game was the dog.

Took me about 15 minutes to finish.

Note: this review is based on older version of the game.
