Description
Release date: 2015
"poetic meditations on the scars that violence leaves behind, beautiful but claustrophobic landscapes"

hi, i think Eczema Angel Orifice looks fantastic. I love horror, hehe. Now i´m finishing the soundtrack in other game and it would be great to work beside such a promising team. I think my music could fit well in your project. You could listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA7fQzZ9gUU What do you think? my email is: cga.sound@gmail.com Thank you. Good Job.

Hope this makes it through Greenlight and on Steam soon! The reg PC version is great (I've been playing the itch.io version), but it's important to support indies and creatives. Let's help get this Greenlit and on Steam pronto! We could use more great IF offerings on the platform, and Porpentine is top-notch!

With Those We Love Alive, Howling Dogs, and Ultra Business Tycoon III are must plays.

If you like slime, emotions, garbage, or vivid erotic horror, if you know your body (like all bodies) is bizarre but it's the only one you have, if you want something different, REALLY different, then this is the game to vote for.

A bundle of lurid, absurd fever dreams made of extruded trauma product and hot pink slime. It's silly to quibble over whether these are games or not. Draw your feelings on your skin. Whisper your secrets to your old enemy. If Cyberqueen is tired, be kind to her. Eczema Angel Orifice is a kaleidoscopic wonderland, and you really ought to put it in your brain.

Porpentine's writing is truly incendiary. It's evocative and groundbreaking. After I played "With Those We Love Alive" I had to get up and go walk around the block because it was so good, and so unlike anything I'd ever read/played, that it straight up just knocked my ass sideways.

I saw this via a post, tried the 'demo', not sure I'd call this a game. More of an interactive short story that reads as if it was written by someone who's native language was not English. Maybe I'm just not in the know enough to "get" it, but I did appreciate the manta ray in the sauna bit at least. The music is relaxing as well.

However, personally for me this would be far more interesting in a partially illustrated comic format. As it stands now, many of the sentences and scenarios presented may as well have been in gibberish to me. I feel it's something that will only appeal to a niche circle of internet folk who understand this modern blog internet lingo.
In the end I couldn't count this as a game, and I would not pay for it any more than I would for modern art's infamous single dot on a blank canvas.

Porpentine is one of the most interesting writers working today in any medium, and she's doing things with interactive storytelling are earth-shaking.

Few authors so thoroughly and effectively tell a story while maintaining a personal emotional core. Screw detailed backstory, let me feel something for once!
