This is how this intriguing story begins, which explores terrifying psychological moments, which revolve around very familiar situations and problems, but which make the protagonist lose track of reality and fiction. The central narrative is strong and addresses a variety of mature themes, including emotional abuse, trauma, depression and violence, which is precisely why it is recommended for an adult audience.

Decarnation’s gameplay is quite reduced and essential, focusing on a combination of extensive dialogues (fortunately the game is available in Portuguese), musical sequences (Gloria is a dancer) and solving puzzles that are well thought out and intuitive, but that need a little attention.
