This game is fantastic!!!
I just finished up playing it with a friend of mine and we were wrecks by the end. It's very emotionally intense - in the best way. If you like Wretched and Alone games but wish you could make someone suffer with you, this is the game for you.
My only nitpick is that the pages are split up a bit weird - the rescue text for the exile wound up in the solitude's manual. I had to spoil myself to reformat it, and believe me, this is a game you need to go in blind to.
That being said, I'm going to absolutely destroy more of my friends with this. If you're thinking of getting this, it's 100% worth it. Thank you, kind author, for a very enjoyable evening!
