DISCLAIMER: This game contains mentions of dark and heavy topics. Viewer discretion is advised.

Originally made for the Kill the Cutie game jam but we thought to include the game for NG's Spooktober too. This game takes inspiration of the story from Fran Bow and some game mechanics of Darkwood. It wasn't originally meant to be deployed in HTML5 so it may be slow during cutscenes or there may be a slight delay in audio (especially at the very start, give a little time until the audio kicks in for it to finish loading the intro). For smoother gameplay, you can download the game files here.

Maddie will need all the help she can get to reach the Attic.

Take your time.

I really enjoy the chilly atmosphere of the game. Story and characters very creative, good job!

Really pretty game. Nice use of the RPGM mechanics, and better use than most people do (the speed to escape, for example)


Neat Game.
