We wanted Shun to be as open to interpretation as possible. However, we had a specific idea of what themes we wanted to depict.
We recommend playing the game and exploring your own interpretation before reading the next section.
The game depicts an abusive relationship, be it between an individual and a religious organisation, a romantic partner, or the government. The physical and emotional isolation of the victim from the people around them is a common method of abuse and control. The abuser becomes the only person the victim can trust. With this game, we wanted to explore that relationship of control, paranoia and isolation, and test whether or not players would blindly obey the dogmas we push upon them, or question them.

Great short horror game, I didn't really get it but after I read the description it sorta makes sense to me, no jumpscares all atmosphere overall nice enjoyable game you got here hope to see more from you.
I like this game may be add more stuff to make it bit horror. 4/5
This is an awesome little experience. Tense, tight, aesthetically pleasing, surprisingly deep and ambiguous, doesn't waste your time, highly recommended.
