This is a game with a lot of evocative horror imagery, an interesting mystery and a lot of clever twists which unfortunately loses steam and spirals down towards the end. A great build up is totally wasted in favor of just infodumping everything on you and railroading you into certain endings at the last bit. Also the phonetically spelled out accents are A LOT at certain points and a huge detraction of the writing.

Okay. This story is incredible. The plot was really fascinating. It give you a sherlock holmes vibe and the ancient lore in this story was really well constructed. The mystery is pretty fun with some obvious clues and some very tricky one. The interaction between MC with support characters also seemed smooth and nice. My only complaint is the stat meter. Well it damn confusing, i was wondering was it really usefull. But i guess that add toward books plus point. Overall very entertaining book
