About the Story

Those puppets made with precious materials are of good quality. But the best ones are born to be puppets rather than selected.

My favorite of the 3 Chinese if comp 2017 games. A puppet horror story, November 16, 2017

I beta tested this game.

This is a story that only branches twice, but does so in an effective way. You are the wife of a puppet master who performs across the country, but you have to make a difficult choice when he turns to dark means to support his work.

It's fairly short, and it uses type-writer effect text on light backgrounds with music/sound effects.
