This game is beautiful, both in it's look and the writing, and it genuinely terrified me when something just appeared from the bottom of the screen. It gives you enough to place you into this world while leaving enough to your imagination. It's bloody fantastic, all the way through. Well done!
Visually unique, well written and characterized, rambling coming of age story. Driftword is a horror story not about monsters and ghosts and bloody serial killers, but about the sad and lonely realities of growing up, and growing apart, and facing changes as an adult for the first time. The developer has a great touch for the subtle relationships between friends who grew up close in a small town, and playing this game reminded me of the ones I made and lost along the way.
Great great stuff, I’m glad I had the chance to experience this and I am looking forward to exploring more of Hankworx’s catalog after this. It’s been a long time since I was moved emotionally by a video game, so this was a good one. Thanks for making this, and thanks for sharing!
