"One of the single most engrossing, horrifying 
pieces of interactive fiction I've ever read.
"

"This story grabbed me by the heart and shook.
Highly recommended for a look at darkness and what it makes you.
"

"Acres of emotional and social subtext [...]
The sense of dread never lets up."

"Haunting, emotional and immersive."

"If a generation from now someone asks me
what it was like watching the rise of Trump’s
America, I might just show them this."
