Little Misfortune is another weird kid from Fran Bow devs

A kiddywinkle tries to bring her mum the magical gift of Eternal Happiness in Little Misfortune, an adventure game announced today by Fran Bow developers Killmonday Games and set in in the same world as their 2015 debut. Ah, another cheery one. But Fran Bow was a lot more thoughtful and funny than its morbid first impressions might suggest, a game our former Adam (RPS…

Interview: Killmonday On Fran Bow, Mental Health, Beauty

Disturbing. Sometimes a word is just perfect and tells you everything you need to know. Adventure game Fran Bow, a regular feature in the Kickstarter Katchup, is disturbing. Brutally, marvelously and almost overly, harmfully disturbing. It's about half way done, in money and time, on indiegogo and I've just played through the improved alpha demo. Thoughts and trailer once you've had your medicine. Fair warning: not for the…
