Enter the deeply dark and disturbing world of Fran Bow. After witnessing the brutal murder of her parents, she runs away into the forest with her only companion, a black cat named Mr. Midnight. She wakes up later to find herself in an overbearing mental institution with no memory of what happened to her and her cat. Intrigued?
Swedish developers Natalia Figueroa and Isak Martinsson of Killmonday team up to produce a five part psychological point-and-click-thriller where the lone child Fran Bow sets out to escape the mental asylum, find her cat, reach her only living relative Aunt Grace and discover her parent’s murderers. Here’s a quick look at some of the key elements of the game.
