Strange. Well thought-out, but very, very strange. Probably a bit too ADHD for me, really. The journey through this psychosis is a little lacking in direction, forcing the player to really grope around in the dark for what to do and when - but rather than seeming challenging, it just seems unneccessarily difficult. The title "Foxglove" (Digitalis) is clever, and I like it - but it may give a bit too much away for people in-the-know. The music is monotonous, meandering, and creepy - traits I view as perfect for this concept. All-in-all, I'd say that this game might be perfect for a genius, but a little too over-the-top for a casual player.

To avoid spoiling anyone's appetite for Foxglove, I suggest they play the game through before they read my review.

Foxglove, I have mixed feelings for you. You are beautiful in many ways, but ugly in the darkest. Your design is superb, your atmosphere surreal, and your storytelling sophisticated. Your very creation is an artful act of courage, but one that comes with a deeply troubling tone -- a bitter taste on my tongue.

Your unsettling, monochromatic patchwork of imagery and intrigue draws me into the struggle of an innocent boy trying to make sense of his mother's psychosis. In his final moments of delirious slumber, he uncovers the sickening history of murder and cover-up that has plagued his pathetically stunted life.

Finally, at the completion of his unconscious struggle, he returns to the last moments of his waking life. Foxglove, how do you end? You never say for certain. Does the boy travel back to hear his brother mistaking the identity of a late-night visitor? Does he travel back as a ghost to haunt his mother from the grave? Does he, having completed his struggle for understanding, succumb to death and leave his mother behind? You leave me shaken, upset, and without closure.
