“A tes­ta­ment to how video games can be used to tell a story.“
Ind­ie­GameMag

“It's thought-provoking and emo­tion­ally grip­ping, should you let it be“
IndieStatik

“It embod­ies some­thing very rare in gam­ing today – a very strong and com­pelling mes­sage that demon­strates how game design can be an art and how video games can be used to tell a story.“
– 30PlusGamer

“It appears James… has suc­ceeded in blur­ring the dis­tinc­tion between read­ing a story and actu­ally being put in the role of the pro­tag­o­nist.“
– GamesWarp
