This game is about two lovers named January and September.
No, wait; it's about a group of people who don't believe in the sky.
No, it's about a pantheon of scientific disciplines.
Or maybe it's about an ancient beast who knew exactly when it was going to die, and how.

It's about a place. A place called Looming.

Please Read before starting

The game has a bug. If you click outside of the screen after pressing play in the loading screen, you get stuck.
Apart from that, really good game.

Beautifully stark and engrossing

I loved every minute of this dark adventure into a primitive realm with many secrets that beg to be unearthed. the graphical style fits the game so well that anything else would have seemed too much. A interesting look into cultures and beliefs. I was engrossed the whole way through! unfortunately stuck on ending 9... if anyone wants to PM me a clue or just spoil it for me. please do

This is what games were supposed to be.

When was the last time you saw anyone create a genuinely original world? The last time you played a proper adventure game, the kind where you win by genuinely thinking? _Looming_ is far more than merely very good, or atmospheric; it does what it does to the degree that constitutes High Art. Not the snooty fake kind either, but the kind of art that's the reason we have galleries in the first place, because _people need to see this_. This game has the kind of greatness that I forget is even possible in theory.
