It all started with these weird dreams. Dreams of blood and monsters and strange voices chanting.

Nightmares.

Lately, you hardly find any rest at all.

Every evening you get home to your lonely apartment, dreading the haunting visions waiting for
you in your bed.

And every morning you get up tired. Exhausted from yet another restless night.

"Rituals" - my entry for the 2021 Halloween event "Commonplace Book" - is a short interactive story
inspire by an entry from H. P. Lovecraft's "Commonplace Book":

"Odd nocturnal ritual. Beasts dance and march to musick."

One remark about this game

From a development standpoint this game is something quite different from my other stuff.

It's programming is way closer to a classic "visual novel" game, it contains only very few python fragments, and it's strictly linear:

You're presented with a scenario and choices and your choices determine your path.

My other games all had random elements and are more open game-play, you always had some choice regarding what to when and in which order; and each of them is pretty "python-heavy".

On the other hand ... the classic VN game play approach will definitely not work for "rituals".

Furthermore I deliberately disabled most of ren'py's usual "comfort features". You can't save, you can't rollback ...

This is unique in comparison to not only your other games, but most games period.

Definitely worth it, imo.
Garage :) Yes! It again your level!
