Playing this is like sinking into a grave. Perfectly atmospheric.
A gothic mystery game in which you rely on your environment to uncover the truth.
Created for the 2019 subQjam, using less than one thousand words across all routes. Contains religious content, multiple endings, optional audio, and lots of Latin.

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