Story-related talks.
Yeap, I know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But I can't get why people keep on complaining about lack of story. Yeap, it doesn't really has obvious one. Though every character has a skeleton in their closet, backstory explaining what is wrong with them. It is explained in these still pictures and at their locations through puzzles. Different times, different people, different sins. Their stories are very dark under that cover of comic visuals and overall presentation. They feel complete but at the same time they feel like grotesque reflections in someone's mirror. Someone's demon. And at a whole the game doesn't really explains itself. Is it a punishment? Hell? Is it a dream or a nightmare? They all keep dying... And can't die in the Cave. How much of an entertainment the Cave really is?
