Project Antivent - Day Twenty One

Baroque was yet another game I reviewed earlier this year, and it holds the distinction of being one of the darkest non-Shin Megami Tensei-related RPGs I've ever played. Not that the intro doesn't clue you in to that: it starts with a Rorschach test turned cancerous, ends with a bloodstain turning becoming an portentous geometric symbol, and in-between, takes every opportunity to flash ominous text and worrying smiles at the viewer. Meanwhile, the title theme is the charmingly named Sinful Eyes. No, this isn't a cheerful game at all, is it.

It also gives away at least one major plot twist if you know what you're looking for, but, like every character here, in a way, that's neither here nor there.
