The wordplay, poetic I'd say, and the music combined with the visuals gives me eerie vibes, something Litrouke used in his other games too. I was happily surprised by this story and enjoyed it a lot. It certainly is worth your time, even if it is to train your Latin.

Full review on my website!


It was great! The fact that the narrative can be constructed and reconstructed for different flows was novel. The music at the start was perfect!


ok wow that was way too good


beutifully made!


Playing this is like sinking into a grave. Perfectly atmospheric.


This comment made my morning. Spot-on.

a really interesting game, thank you <3<3<3


And thank you for this lovely comment! Glad you enjoyed.

As always, fantastic work! It's very poetic, and I really enjoyed how you incorporated the words into the images. It told a story without being direct, and every element blended seamlessly with the next.

oh my god, that was so intense! i haven't read/played much IF but this was really formally innovative. thank you for this gift

And thank you for this gift of a comment!!


Liked the atmosphere and the storytelling. Simple yet elegant. I like small details: how text forms a cross around the word, the translations to latin.
Sound design is also very suitable.
Also it's replayable, you make your own story.


Thank you so much! I really appreciate your close attention to details and I'm glad you enjoyed.
