About the story

Fran Bow is a Horror Point and click game that tells the story of Fran, a young girl struggling with a mental disorder and an unfair destiny. It is a trip to the deepest and darkest side of human psychology, delivered through blood and tears.

After witnessing the gruesome and mysterious loss of her parents, found dismembered at their home, Fran rushes into the woods, together with her only friend, Mr. Midnight, a black cat that Fran had previously received as a present from her parents.
In the forest, Fran goes into shock over the loss of her parents and when she recovers, she’s at Oswald Asylum, an oppressive mental institution for children, and Mr. Midnight is nowhere to be found.
After having a dream about her beloved cat, Fran decides to escape from the mental institution to find him and go back home to Aunt Grace, her only living relative.

Such a great game! I am kind of disappointed that I finished it in only a few days though.... But guessing by how it ended there should be a second game coming out in the future, right????

Yay! I was hoping if it was cheaper, like $5. I guess I should get the demo before playing the full version, haha! I came across this game by Ihascupquake, it looks very fun. :) My type of game!
