    Interesting concept, although I’m not sure of the perspective I was playing from in the three different parts.

    One of my absolute faves from you both – Terry showed it to me yesterday. I really like it when you guys explore narrative, perhaps more than I enjoy the purely mechanical stuff (it’s not that I don’t enjoy that either…) You both have a real knack for atmosphere.

    Love the square snowflakes – kinda reminds me of Silent Hill on PS1 – and the trek of SH2. If anything I’d actually like the trek to be longer, to enhance the feeling of isolation.

    Great trees, too.

    Its a goddamn shame so few people have played this. I just found your website and this is the first game of yours that I was compelled to comment on. The last part for me was genuinely terrifying. I ended up dying and the entire time playing that my entire body was frozen.

    Jeez, keep up the good work.
