The first serial role-playing game on PC and Mac
A drama is unfolding in a tiny village buried in snow, lost in the depths of a Three-River Principality valley. A sudden death, a now-hostile home, new sensory capacities rising like a storm and the departure towards the unknown, the only means to escape besides death, has become inevitable...The newly-orphaned heroine is pushed to leave her father’s village by the voices of her unconscious mind.
The music for Winter Voices is the real standout here. Haunting melodies with a bit of an exotic feel to them, a nice blend of synthetic and real instruments, moody music to match the mysterious past of the main character: it all works together brilliantly.
Winter Voices seems to keep the surprises coming, with some fresh ideas and interesting concepts.
Battles keep their psychological edge: you’re no longer fleeing from unwanted memories, but trying to survive their re-emergence, or repress them once more
