Seul.(Alone) is a philosophical thriller, containing horror elements. A subsistence where characters dwell. It is a choose your own adventure type of game but there are mysteries to solve and connections to unfold. Journey through here but remember you may not stay.

CONTENT WARNING. THIS GAME DOES CONTAIN IMAGES OF MEDICAL-SURGICAL HORROR & BODY HORROR. THAT SOME PLAYERS MAY FIND DISTURBING. 

Looking deeper at Seul.(Alone) it is a philosophical thriller, meaning it is a thriller based on thrilling philosophical ideas and contains horror elements. From nihilism, existentialism, surrealism, solipsism and absurdism. A narrative told with these ideas kept in mind. I wanted to play on these thoughts but also present some Lynchian kind of world where nothing makes much sense at first glance but as one adapts to it, when it manages to invade itself into you. You begin to see that mostly everything is staged within the game for a reason, a motivation sits behind every image and sentence.

Seul.(Alone) is aimed to be a detective styled game where every choice has weight and you can feel that but I also wanted it to be about nothing. Like how dreams can feel at times. It seems so heavy and important to the dreamer while the dream is happening but when one wakes it seems to lose all its importance or even its sensibility. The weight of it has dissipated and you are left with this odd out of place feeling while you lay there replaying the memory of the dream you just had.

But at times those dreams can still affect you if you lay there and really begin to pull them apart and ask why, what was the reason for that? Where did those thoughts come from? What is my subconscious communicating, where are the links to my life?  Now you are studying the dream… and there’s a whole ocean of stuff behind that now, connections, motivations and meanings. This is what I want to achieve in Seul.(Alone) and you mostly ever find yourself studying those areas of your life when you are truly Seul.(Alone).

As much as I expected, this was amazing. It was just the right amount of unsettling that I had an uneasy feeling in my guts through out the entire game, but in a strange way it was enjoyable. I love how it was incredibly theatrical with such little visual effect. Definitely one of my favorites to date. 

Loved it was absolutely brilliant very creepy nice mood setting i loved the characters i hope you do make another

Cheers Silent Duck for giving the game a go. We really enjoyed watching it man! Stay SiC and keep up the awesome vids. We understand that a text based game like this is fucking hard to narrate and delve into the story at the same time. So a monumental effort dude!    

 Thanks again and we are truly appreciative. 

It was awesome i love visual novels and text based adventures i honestly think this game deserves more attention very unique it gave me the shivers at times

Massive thanks to Kay over at GitRad for giving Seul.(Alone) The entree a shot.

"Seul.(Alone) ticks all those boxes & is up there as one of the finer ‘choose your own adventure’ style games."
