Along the way players will find bits and pieces of information that will allow the player to understand the dark and sad past of the painter.

Fantastic game

I loved this game. Wish there were a lot more like it. I played it on an early 2015 Macbook Pro and had none of the issues other people had, although it does take a long time to load - I’d estimate 60 to 90 seconds, which seems like eternity in computer time. But it was worth it. Great graphics, atmosphere, grew in intensity and complexity as the game went on, but playable without using a walkthrough. It should not have a two star rating!

WASTE OF MONEY!!! I love horror based games and my friend highly reccomend that this one will knock me off my feet! It takes forever to load and when it finally does the story is in black. i can hear but nt see it. Then when the ACTUAL game play DOES come on i take like a step a min because it lags like a bad connection on modern warfare for comparison for the game heads like myself. I really would like the money credited to my account or a way to possibly re download it to see it that will fix the issue. Really disappointed because i REALLY wanted to play this game :-(
