I have read through countless works from both ends of the spectrum – from mythology to science, Lovecraft to Shulgin. I am increasingly certain that these phenomena lie somewhere in a realm as yet unaccounted for: the strange place where fact and fiction meet, and a new reality comes into fruition.
An interesting little mod and as others have mentioned, much like “Dear Esther”,
I got the same sense of loneliness and unease travelling through both of these, even though “Nestlings” is so much smaller. Just a house, albeit a creepy one!
But I took my time reading the notes while listening to some wonderful musical accompaniment and was rewarded with an deeply emotional journey. With the gloomy setting and self-narration it all adds up to an emotionally charged ending.
Loved this piece of work, just wish the musical score was a tad longer as I read the notes, maybe too slowly!
Only one complaint: I found the hand-written font a little hard to read at times, breaking the flow of the narrative a bit. Just a minor thing!
I'm not sure this one was worth the download. The setup and the house are pretty creepy, and the music is decent enough that the overall house feels solid.
At the same time, I was expecting something a bit more at the end... I was tensing up expecting something, but nothing came.
This, overall, is what made the game feel shorter than it should have been.'
The font of the letters was very hard to read, too, with every 'T' looking like an 'R'
