"She was resplendent."

Wonderfully immersive. :)

Managed to pick up the game on sale, made some kind of bonus

OMG, I really enjoyed this! It has that interesting, wanting to know more vibe that makes you feel connected to the character. Keep up the good work!!!

A beautiful game. It was atmospheric and captivating. I felt the main character's desperation grow behind her words as the story progressed. I really liked the way the game felt as well, like I actually was accessing these records from a terminal somewhere under the ocean. Very good experience.

I really enjoyed this; the atmosphere's pitch-perfect, the art does a great job of punctuating the story while leaving plenty to the imagination, and the writing sucked me in. Great work!

like the ending

I really enjoyed this, it has such a compelling, eerie vibe! The music and visuals complement the prose so well.


i liked it :)

great, both the game and its soundtrack.


El estilo de las imagenes me hacia estar mirando entre los dedos todo el rato por si salia alguna que me pudiera asustar, lo paso regular con estos juegos pero la verdad es que me ha gustado, ojalá acabe yendo con ella :_)


This was incredible!! I was extremely drawn in. I'm going to keep thinking about this for a long ass time. Favorite thing I've read in a while.

favorite game. thats it. i love it!

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it : D

Of course! 


I think this game is really well thought out. The log set up is good, and the thoughts of the person is well conveyed and seem realistic to someone. I really wanna know the rest lol it was really good. i think i just wanted to almost see more images but possibly that wouldn't create the loneliness you wanted to create with darkness and limited vision. The images that were shown were very detailed and really well done. Over all i really enjoyed it. A good game always makes you want more and i definitley wanted more lol. I love the mystery and curiosity.


Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. It's tricky to strike a good balance of resolving the story and leaving some mystery, but I'm glad it's so compelling!
