The Fifth Apartment (2015)

Briefly experienced but poignantly felt, The Fifth Apartment is a quiet and dark accomplishment, from a seemingly modest source (I don’t know who is behind the title) It details the slow churn of an old Belgian woman’s move toward death, as her mind and memories begin to deteriorate.

The mood of the game is exceptionally executed, as I felt continually immersed in the world before me. The visuals were beautiful as well, giving the game a grandeur to contrast its hellish theme. Everything is shady, brittle, and dusty, with no space for light or dreams or expansion. Pock marked walls cry out for mercy. Claustrophobia abounds.

I wanted to bring attention to The Fifth Apartment because I think it deserves your time. Consider playing through it. It will only take a couple of minutes.

Made for Ludum Dare 33.
