About this game

Step into the fog to confront your terror: the evil that hides within.

The Fog Knows Your Name is a 300,000 word interactive teen horror novel by Clio Yun-su Davis, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

It's senior year of high school. Your classmate Rex Keller was found dead six months ago, and you were the last person to see him alive. Half the town thinks you murdered him, including his sister, Ennis. The other half believes it was the fog.

In your town, ever since anyone can remember, people die when the fog rolls in. No one knows exactly how or why. Some say the land didn't want the colonizers, so it sends the fog as an agent of vengeance. Some say the Devil himself lurks in the fog, collecting souls. Others believe the fog simply drives people mad, causing them to enact violence onto each other and onto themselves.

There is one element of the tale that remains the same in every telling: those who perish in the fog are guilty of wronging another without confessing to it. Those who admit to causing harm can walk in the fog untouched. The liars die.

Their ghosts haunt the town. They're haunting you, they're haunting Ennis Keller, and they're haunting your friends at school. If you and your friends can't unravel the fog's mysteries in time, those ghosts are going to kill you, one way or another.

• Play as female, male, or non-binary; gay, straight, bi, ace, aromantic, or poly.
• Stop the thing in the fog and exorcise the ghosts who haunt your town.
• Enter the fog and die.
• Solve murders. The clues are just waiting in the fog.
• Entangle yourself in romances with your friends and enemies.
• Protect the town that despises you or take vengeance against them.

When the dead speak, will you give them what they want or put an end to them? Clear the past, clear your name, clear the fog.

This is one of the better interactive fiction games i've played, especially after you get past all the beginning exposition. the ending (i got) was satisfying and left me wanting more, and there's high replayabilty with this. i felt attached to the characters and truly torn at some of the choices I had to make. It was worth it to get the full version.

A lot of replayability! There are so many different ways to go about things and a lot of mutually-exclusive choices. The stat management difficulty is higher than in some games like this, in that you'll fail a lot if you don't focus and strategize enough, but failures are rarely (if ever?) lethal and it doesn't feel like you're forced to min-max at a cost to story experience.

I actually purchased this book. The author did a great job with the world building: the characters are all unique and relatable. The plot has lots of twists and turns. However, the stat checks in game are hard to meet and often it is not immediately clear what stats are tied to what choice. This was a tough game to win and the middle of the story while investigating was not very exciting. I just wish the stat checks weren't so difficult, and that the bad ending could have a redo last choice.
