This is the story of a stranger, who unexpectedly enters the life of a happy couple, Michael and Katherine. After Katherine goes missing, will the stranger be able to bring her back?

This is a short Halloween project I worked on with ludeshka. I did the writing, coding, and music, and ludeshka contributed all of the artwork.

You might ask yourself: If I could only save one paragraph of the work I'm writing, which one would I save?
Which one would I let go first?

I Liked how you handled the different POVs between the characters. Shame I didn't understand much of the story although I had some hints about what might have happened to them. :)

Thanks for your comment! The story was meant to be a little vague, since I didn't want to spell everything out to the player, but here's a little more info in case it was a little too confusing:
This was basically a zombie story. Kat was bitten by one not long before the story begins. Mark doesn't want her to die out in the wilderness because he knows she'll come back as a zombie, and Vincent offers to find her and get rid of her for good. Cue the rest of the story. XD
If you feel there was a part of the story that was way too confusing, though, feel free to PM me. :D

Thanks so much for playing!

Your welcome and thanks for clarifying. I kind of half guessed but turns out I'm pretty much wrong. xD Still i liked it!

Sorry for the super late reply. XD

Since the story was pretty open to interpretation(there's a reason it's kind of vague), I wouldn't say that, whatever you guessed the story was really about, your guess was "wrong"-- it was just different from mine. And, despite the fact I wrote the story, with my own interpretation and meaning, it's definitely open-ended enough for you to develop your own interpretation of what happened. If I may ask, what did you believe the story was really about?

I initially thought some kind of disease got spread which cause her to lose her "rational part" and for people to lock themselves up
but after you explained it to me it makes more sense how. Still it was really good. ^^ Short but good.
