A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The game was made for NaNoReNo 2013, and will no longer be updated.

Play as an unnamed female narrator as you suddenly wake up in a dark room,
and move around to find yourself in a circus theater where you will witness probably one of the most disturbing things in your life. (Or so we say.)
