Interesting. A game book in mystery horror/survival genre?
Unusual between all this fantasy/sci-fi stuff.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Definitely! Love the art style and I'm always up for a Gamebook, not sure if my wallet is happy about it though. This has been a real week for sleeper hits and indie titles, I almost prefer it to getting a couple of big name games!

Jeeeeze... totally forgot about this game months ago. I grabbed it now, and - to be honest - this is a true gem! It's one of the BEST gamebooks I ever played! It oozes charme and really feels like a labour of love. The game content is massive and the story is immersive and spooky. This is a perfect Halloween game.
A shame that it didn't got more notice.
