The Path: a short horror game from Tale of Tales
Bar Harbor
This is an interesting experiment in interactive storytelling that I commend to those interested in such things. I don't recall ever seeing anything quite like it before. I don't think it's directly applicable to my current project, but good food for thought nonetheless.

1) Despite the description, it is only vaguely game-like. Very few standard gaming conventions, and most of those subverted in some way.
2) *Very* slow-paced. There is considerable content here, but it may take you a long time to discover it.
3) The narrative is very symbolic and allusive. You will not get a pat ending explaining what everything 'really means'.

If none of those is a show-stopper for you, check it out. It's only ten bucks, and I found it well worth that.

If you're on the fence, I can point you to this review for more information.
