Ahoj, pokud se nic nezměnilo, tak Moirai si už bohužel nezahraješ, protože vývojáři kvůli narůstajícím hackerským útokům ukončili servery, ke kterým se hra připojovala.

This was very unique and interesting and definitely worth playing.

Even though I am posting my youtube playthrough I would recommend playing it yourself before watching anyone else.

I gave this a play and was TOTALLY expecting it to be an unexpected, scary, jumpscare-esque horror game - But I was totally surprised with what I got instead. Great game, short - but innovative!

I made a Let's Play of my experience to for anyone interested in getting a look-see!

Well that was unexpected. Started playing to see if it was worth making a video of, then got to the end and disappointed myself because is very much is, but I don't feel like it should really be played a second time...

Great game. Well done.

Sorry if you are getting an un-authorised message for the download. I applied a minor patch to the game and now have to wait for IndieDB to approve it.

In the meantime you can download it directly from my website.
