I returned once again to the city of my molting...

This short narrative exploration game, set in the same universe as A Host of Gentle Terrors and built in the lightweight engine Bitsy, introduces you to a run down, abandoned city and the bookselling bug that once lived there. The city has changed in your absence, however, and it bears the mark of the being known as Walking-Weaver...

This Cool Walking Simulator Features:

  • A deep look at the most popular and important character from A Host of Gentle Terrors: that bug that sells you books
  • Minimalist graphics
  • Minimalist NPC interaction
  • Flashing lights (warning!)
  • Metaphors for extremely pathological habits
  • Alien phenomenology
  • One Very Questionable Pun
  • Moths???

Created as part of the Bitsy Moth Jam

beautiful game i love the atmosphere and the writing

Really impressive game, with such intricacy in the art and the world-building. It feels like it could be a lost Borges or Bradbury story.

Thanks so much! Both for the comment and for putting the engine and jam together! I definitely feel very influenced by Borges and by, you know, all the people influenced by Borges.

Nice stuff, very neat world-building.
