[Horror/Platformer] AOOFAD & Au Sable
« on: March 15, 2011, 13:49:44 »
If goth poetry came alive, it would look and play like this.
Viscerally horrible, and beautiful/freaksome.
Best music/sound I've seen in indie gaming.

Not for faint of heart.

Both games here:

I recommend playing All of our friends are Dead first.
The author had nightmares and basically used them as inspiration to write these games-

AAOFAD:



Au Sable...

I just want to add my vote that these two games are excellent atmosphere pieces. Neither are particularly hard - it's mostly about the mood they portray. The music and sound effects are wonderful and the graphics, while at first seeming a bit messy, are actually brilliant. There's something haunting about the only-vaguely-comprehensible plots and blundering on despite not really understanding the hows and whys.

Au Sable is particularly good.

Haven't tried them yet, but above the first screenshot it says "AAOFAD" not "AOOFAD"
Hey there Delilah, what's it like in New York City, I'm a thousand miles away but girl tonight you look so pretty, yes you do~<br /><br />Time Square can't shine as bright as you, I swear it's true~

I've finished Au Sable, and I would actually say it's only scary under extreme conditions, like pitch black at night. It's nothing during the day.

Downloading All of our Friends are Dead now.
Ah, look at all the lonely people.

I finally bothered to play AOOFAD
Not scary at the slightest, more so creepy.
Ah, look at all the lonely people.
