Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 16. If this were a movie, it would probably between PG-13 and R.

This is a dark, horror, mystery, romance.

You wake to find yourself buried alive on what should've been the happiest day of your life. Who put you there, why and is there any hope of escape?

There are quite a few different endings to the game but there is one best ending which is longer than the others. There is also a secret pink ending if you can find it.

Player Comments

This was a good game. A nice challenging puzzle with some solid story. Well written, and although a little brief, it's detailed enough. It was fun to play through. As Katie says, the use of colours was well done.

I agree with Fazz and think that you could have written a more detailed ending. It felt a little unsatisfying when you get to what I assume is the best ending and it all finishes way too abruptly. There are still loose ends to be explained.

I have not rated a story 7 in a long time. Since I am not a loose rater, 7 is very good and I have only ever rated one or two storygames 8.

The flaw in this game was that it was way too hard to beat and took forever. Otherwise, I'd have given it an 8. I found the good ending, but not the secret pink ending. There are also way too many methods of dying and lots of clues that mean nothing to readers, and can be understood only by the author.

It was one of the few games that could actually immerse me, giving the feeling that the author could actually write a book if they needed to. Items were used well, but some places were confusing and items could not be used when they should have been able to.

As stated above, a wonderful game. 7/8.

Good:
1. Creativity of plot- suspenseful thrillers are rare on CYS
2. Puzzles using items
3. Good balance between open freedom and restrictions
4. Pictures

Bad:
1. A few spelling errors

Ugly:
1. The link design needs to be redone. For example, even if I never got into the excavator, I would see the page where the excavator knocked down the fence after I got out. Also, many times there were situations where I shouldn't just see the exact same text after I did an action, since I just changed the environment, but I did

2. Character motivation a little underdeveloped

This was a really cool puzzle type story. I really enjoyed reading it, although I do feel the ending where you save Mina is a bit abrupt.

Really good story! There could've been a better ending other than, "You made it! You're safe!" But overall I enjoyed playing. Good job! :)

"You did it. You are both safe!"

Great! I wonder what is the pink ending? ;)
