A tragedy sleeps in the hiking trails and run-down mills of Western Massachusetts. It lays dormant in the collective folk memory — but not for long. Play as Camlin, a 20-something year old college student who begins to hear the sounds of a centuries-old flood through their audio equipment. Read along and make key choices in this sound novel to help Camlin unravel the mystery of the 1874 Mill River Flood.

Will you hold the guilty accountable?

Inspired by Night of the Kamaitachi, Oxenfree, An Outcry, and Night in the Woods.

Made by A. Blaustein, DavidRodMad (@davidrodmad), Luca Fisher (@lucanfisher), and Quinn K. (@QuinnPixelArt).

I hated that this ended when it did because I absolutely loved the game. We are discussing this as part of our horror game podcast Safe Room for Bloody Disgusting this coming week and were full of praise for what you've made.

Can't wait for more.


Wow, thank you so much! We're honored to hear that! Please do link us the episode when it goes live, and have fun! We'll give it a listen for sure.


Hey again! The episode has gone live! Safe Room Podcast: Horror Bytes August 2022
