Oíche Mhaith (pronouced "Ee-ha why") is a short game by Increpare and I.
I can't really describe how I'm feeling right now.
This game made me think, even after playing it. It's message is obvious, and watching this story is like getting the message hammered into your head with a sledgehammer. The music fits the scenes very nicely, the only thing I can complain about is the annoying sound effect you hear while changing the room.
I could say a thousand words about what I like and what I don't like about this game, but let me reduce it to this:
Thank you. This game was beautiful in a horrible way.
FUCK MY LIFE
Definitely one of the best games I have played. Not only for the interactivity, but also for the music, story, and message it gives. Truly a work of art.
This should have been rated Mature, not Adult. That aside, I beat the game. I cried after playing this. This game reminds me on how an ex of mine grew up/ Back in our senior year of high school, the stress of it all drove her to kill herself. I'm not gonna say more after that. How badly that girl was treated by her mom and dad just reminded me of what an ex went through
Despite how "simple" this game appears to be, I find that it is actually very polished. It felt that every little detail in the game was instrumentally designed to add something, right down to the "thump" sound effect during room changes, and managing to depict porn on her dad's 24-pixel computer screen.
And so much was packed in the dialogue. From how the loving girl imitates her dad and calls her doll names (probably not really knowing what whose words mean), to how her parents deliver that ultimate slap in her face by declaring that "our family is whole again" as soon as they find her brother and leave her behind (again). Just so heavy.
Beautiful guitar music too. Now the nice peaceful ending song is looping, but I don't think I can listen to it much longer, as the song is now forever associated with my tearful moment of finishing the game.
I almost wish that this game is really a clever prank by the developers. "Okay, let's make the most depressing game ever, have it rated as adult, so it'd hit the horndogs looking for pron like a train." If instead it really came from personal experience of you or your loved ones... I'm sorry.
