A downloadable nightmare for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Lizzy is a young girl living in a place called “The Boarding”, a run down town that’s walled away from the outside world. All who live here live to serve the mysterious Mother Matron, who everyone reveres as their own parent and leader. The Mother Matron tasks Lizzy and two boys, named Pux and Rich, to explore The Crepuscule which lies underneath. Few have ever returned, and the ones that have are changed forever into blubbering wrecks. With their hearts full of trepidation, the three descend into the depths…

You take control of Lizzy. Using your wits and quick thinking, you must try to guide her through the dangers awaiting within The Crepuscule. Can you survive? Can you uncover the secrets of The Boarding and the Mother Matron?

I just cannot fully describe this game with words, really.

Maybe the visual part including body horror here isn't the best in the world, but it makes some kind of special indie atmosphere. Lizzy still looks good though

But this game doesn`t scare with its graphics, it scares with something more than that. The truly dark and depressing feeling was inside of me during all of the walkthough. I liked the contrast of monochrome on everything and color only on the disturbing creatures and meat, made me feel that these creatures are the only ones that actually LIVE there(it`s kind of truth tbh) I just.. cannot describe how good it is written. Wow. Really. I needed to use translator a bit with my b1-b2 English level.. Still, i had i feeling of every word putting me in this beautifully gross atmosphere. I really felt confused in the start and truly despaired in the end. I didn't really expect that Mother Matron looks like THIS.

I love how it all came together for me in the end, with no questions left expect the philosophical ones.

Thanks for this peace of art, waiting for more games from you


This is an unbelievably sweet review. Thank you so much for playing my game and leaving such kind feedback.

There definitely will be more in the future, including free content add ons to this project that I hope to drop throughout the year when they're ready. Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy what's to come!

it's part of my master plan of anachronism


Absolutely in love with this game! The atmosphere is top notch and the story had me gripped beginning to end! Love the themes and how they're presented, love the quick time decisions that really made me feel the danger and urgency of the situation!

My only issues stem from the ending feeling a little rushed and Rich & Pux looking a little too similar. 

Overall though, really fantastic work with phenomenal writing! Keep doing what you're doing!


Dark and unsettling with a dash of reflection on human existence.

For me, the highlight of the game was the worldbuilding. The Boarding is bleak and depressing but there's character to it and I really liked that. There's history, and anecdotes, and all those little details that make it feel like a real place. The same goes for the side characters, too (which is partially due to the great voice acting).

A very interesting experience overall. 👌


Thank you so much!! Glad you enjoyed it!
