Alone in the dark: The shadowed corridors of Hiversaires

Remember, you are the dreamer, you build this world.

Here’s a point-and-click adventure that flew right under my radar last month: Hiversaires, a monochrome mood piece that takes place in a “textless world”. I don’t know anything about the game, really, but the screenshots are equal parts unsettling and inviting. I want to play this.

The game gives the impression of being what abstract first-person puzzler Kairo might have been if Richard Perrin had been a graphic novelist instead of an incipient architect. Hiversaires creator Devine Lu Linvega is an interesting chap: besides making games, he dabbles in minimalist electronic music and creating his own languages.

There’s a trailer after the jump — we’ll review this one, I think.
