Fantastic. Slick, simple interface, great little story to discover, and the slow, ramping horror was subtle and effective. More!

This was great!
This is a precious concept! I didn't expect it to go where it did, which made it even better, but the simplicity of this mechanic and how it actually got me invested with so little dialogue is worthy of praise. Would love to see better lighting and more contrast in the shades of gray so I can more easily identify different characters. Well done! I played around 10:33.
Hi, I'm currently making a series where I play through every game submitted to the Wretched Weekend Jam, and yours was the 42nd game I played!
I loved the feel of this game! I've always enjoyed investigatory things and it was great fun making my way around this odd little town centre, quizzing people and following the story where it led. Can't say I fully understood the ending, but I'm not complaining, it was still great fun! Would love to see this expanded upon! Great work!
Here's the video for those interested (time stamps in description):
Good game cant wait for part 2.
cool game, just had goosebumps, real creepy
I play on laptop without a mouse and I can't progress the game because I can't scroll, are there any alternatives?
Not at the moment, we may update the game with alternative controls, though. Sorry!
EDIT: Pages can now be flipped with 'Q' and 'E'.
Hey there! We've just pushed an update that should allow you to use the 'Q' and 'E' keys to flip the pages of the book!
High praise! Thank you for playing!
Great game! i want to know what happens on the next part
Well that was certainly interesting, can't wait until part 2.
That was really interesting and I liked the detective simulator vibe! Looking forward to the continuation (if there will be one)!
The game was awesome, but I feel really skeezy hitting the "follow hot girls with broken legs" button.
Glad you liked it! No need to feel skeezy, neither of us are hot girls. And we both have perfectly working legs!
I loved the notebook mechanic—it was great being able to flip through pages to interrogate people. The art style was gorgeous, and very striking at the end. Excellent work.
Glad you liked it! Spent a lot of time trying to get the book to feel good, and have all the interface be diegetic. Seems to have payed off!
Is the game finished and needs no more updates?
There's a lot of things we'd do differently with hindsight, but yep, the game is done!
