“[This game] might be best described as a sandbox adventure game, with heavy thematic elements of survival horror. The intentionally ambiguous narrative, [the developers] have told us, is expressed through the actions of the players, and unravelled as the [game’s characters] explore. But exploration is forbidden by the very premise of the story. It’s a heavily metaphorical tale set in an unashamedly fictional world: more about what you’re supposed to take from it, than how much you believe in it. And, just to confuse the hell out of us even more, apparently the only way to complete the game is for the main characters to die.”
Lewis Denby, Resolution Magazine
according to wikipedia:
An epiphany is the sudden realization or comprehension of the (larger) essence or meaning of something. The term is used in either a philosophical or literal sense to signify that the claimant has “found the last piece of the puzzle and now sees the whole picture,” or has new information or experience, often insignificant by itself, that illuminates a deeper or numinous foundational frame of reference.
It is also a feast of the wise men following a star.
To us it is a festival about the returning of the light to the world, meaning the winter will not last forever.
