"This story grabbed me by the heart and shook.
Highly recommended for a look at darkness and what it makes you.
"
Patrick Weekes (Dragon Age, Mass Effect)

"One of the single most engrossing, horrifying
pieces of interactive fiction I've ever read.
"
- Xalavier Nelson Jr (Hypnospace Outlaw, Can Androids Pray)

"There are acres of emotional and social
subtext fit into this condensed story,
and it hits far too many levels of
uncomfortable reality to be taken lightly.
The sense of dread never lets up."
- Rock Paper Shotgun

"Haunting, emotional and immersive."
- The Indie Game Website

"Heartbreakingly human."
- Meristation

"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."

-
MoE (Jefferson Toal)

"One of the most important indie games that you can experience this year."
