_TRIHAYWBFRFYH_ is a short experimental game based on the theme of loneliness
in the works of H. P. Lovecraft. Set in a misty setting with fields, hills and
forests, the protagonist experiences the last 20 minutes before rapture, the
end of the world. A large alien or celestial shape looms above while time
counts down. The player is free to explore the environment in any direction.
Four type of trails, marked by large vertical columns in a different colour,
can be tracked. When the character gets near one of them, part of a Lovecraft
story is narrated and the coloured sphere appears somewhere else.
There are no clear goals in the game except to explore, listen to the stories
and hear the electronic music drone on as the inevitable rapture gets near. At
regular intervals lightning may strike or an earthquake may occur. Movement is
done with four keys along with the mouse to look. The secondary mouse button
provides a zoomed-in view.
