Title
that foul beast
that dragon, cancer: A deeply personal and psychological heavy game about how a couple deals with the illness and eventual death of their four year old child. Its quite poor visually, and the amount of interactivity is extremely limited. But thats not the point is it? It also shows how people can use religion as a mechanism of coping. It made me feel terrible, which i guess was the point. Its 2 hours long, and its a novel experience as far as im aware. I find it hard to recommend it though, mostly because its so bare. In the end i dont think its a good game at all, but its hard not to sympathize with the devs
