I played this game yeeeeears ago, I remember being a bit young to understand the themes of the game so I kinda forgot about it until I saw your post. Now I really want to give it another try. Love creepy media based on fairy tales.

Gosh this was such a fun discussion! Got me thinking about that psych degree that's covered in dust somewhere - I'm a developmental neuroscientist now, so it still applies, but I don't talk about Erikson often anymore (thank you for your anti Freud words btw). Also thank you for talking about the sort of tiktokification of things like trauma. Drives me up a wall sometimes. I don't think I'm the target audience for this game and yet I really want to play it now. Maybe not being the target is the point - I can see a perspective I wouldn't have otherwise. It's such a cool concept, I wish there were more games that took chances like this.

Also, I'm a huge fan of physical media - games especially - but my primary gaming consoles right now are a series S (I am sadly a poor graduate student who could barely afford the cheaper option) and a pc not remotely designed for gaming, so my options are limited.

Anyways, rant over. Thanks for this post! I always look forward to these!
