All chapters of this game are brilliant. I don't usually review games, but this one needs to be celebrated! The chapters give different atmospheres and take place in different environments, but are all connected thematically. The story is compelling, the characters and dialogue are quirky, music and artwork are great. I'm so glad I stumbled across this game!

I love the creepy yet sad aspects. And the mystery of not knowing whats real or not when taking the medecine. cliffhanger mysteries make it more addictive to play to figure it out. I also found the gaurd hilarious, he's very "kind". I would give 5 stars except for 1 thing. All 5 chapters are split up and each cost money. Which is a little annoying because you can't play it all at once and you have to pay for all of them. But I could get around it if the chapters just weren't so short!

Little Fran managed pull on my heart strings while guiding her through a plethora of areas, problems, and adventures. Now that we've parted ways, she and her friends hold a special place in my heart. The characters are lovable and varying which makes this game a real joy to play. The art is a visual treasure that just keeps getting better each iterarion. My only complaint is the game has ended and I find myself still wanting more!
