A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Altocelarophobia. The fear of high ceilings. 

The shy and introverted art student Iris has spent much of her life avoiding gymnasiums, shopping malls, and churches. Challenging herself to drop her unwanted nickname of 'Umbrella Girl' - due to always carrying an umbrella indoors - she joins best friend Audra on a school trip to a power station-turned-art gallery in the city. However, deep inside the gallery, Iris loses both Audra and her umbrella, and is left to navigate the twisting, confusing corridors on her own. Worse, a dark, old, and hungry something watches her every step, waiting for a moment of weakness...

Awesome game! A fascinating and immersive story. I started panicking with Iris when Audra's gone missing. Everything's well put together. Love the style of writing and nice choice of the title too ;)

Will the official version of the game have Chinese subtitles?

(+1)

We are currently looking for people to translate the game into Chinese, but unfortunately, nothing is guaranteed at this moment.

Are there any requirements for the start and completion time of the translation?

No requirements, I'll contact you directly for translation related stuffs.

No comments yet? Wha?

I am so intrigued by this game. I only played a bit of the beginning so far, but I already have so many questions. What was Audra talking to the professor about? What's Mallory's deal? Is she going to turn out to be the Homura Akemi of this story? And what is the something stalking Iris?

As a former (failed) art student, I don't mind the setting one bit, either. Looking forward to playing the rest, eventually!

(PS: I featured this entry on my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out!)

Hey, thanks for playing! Currently only part 1 is done, but we'll have parts 2 and 3 out very soon. Just gotta polish this thing until we're happy :) Check back later this month for the rest!
