« Seeking Low Poly 3D & Procedural Artist, April 2015 | Main | Train Song »



CURTAIN is an interactive first-pereson narrative about Kaci & Ally, two women in a Glasgow punk band, which explores the complexities of an abusive relationship.

Through a vivid impressionistic art style players embody Ally to explore the physical spaces of her relationship, and how it evolves in time. From the detritus players find they can piece together the story while Kaci, your partner and inescapable narrator, watches and comments on every thought and action, creating a overwhelming, stifling atmosphere

It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to finish, the game will exit itself.  

 (cw: non-explicit themes of abuse)

"Curtain is less a cautionary tale and more a cathartic exploration of a terrible, complex situation. It's real-life horror, with a "monster" that's infinitely more complicated and human than anything in fiction... dreamfeeel's observations are so dead-on that they broke my heart". - Danielle Riendeau, Polygon

"You know this is going to happen from the start... The trash of adolescence is all around and your relationship is just as grim". - Chris Priestman, KillScreen

 "what counts the most, is that if you don't go through all the dramatic hardships, the game will keep on running forever." - Luca Colosso, creepygaming.net 

"Curtain is, above all, an exploration of abusive relationships.. the frailty with which we attempt to block out just the parts of people we don't like, until they are too lurid to obscure." - Chloi Rad, IndieGames.com

"if I were @dreamfeeel’s mom and just played curtain I would be like 'wow that was really creative' " -  @kevinthr
