I love this game so much that I made an account to say so. I first played it right after it came out, and it's stayed with me ever since.Horror games are my favorite, but there are very few that have actually scared me. Imagine my surprise when this text adventure turned out to be one of the games that is genuinely frightening. The premise itself is so haunting (it's such a good & disturbing idea that I wish I'd thought of it tbh.) The writing is really good, too.

I swear after the first time I played this, I had bad dreams about the bus driver for a couple nights. The idea of him still gives me the willies.

i cant even play
